"1) I submit this rating as a board certified family physician myself. 2.) He is rude and inappropriate with my mother, telling her that she needs "to poop more" while not even doing a physical exam. (She was later diagnosed with diverticulosis.) 3.) When she had recurrent urinary tract infections, he repeatedly recommended "end of life care." My family begged him for a urology referral, and the urologist in turn referred her to an infectious disease specialist. (Mom takes some tablet - Methenamine - now, and she has had no UTI's in eight months. 4.) Some years ago, both Dr. Cantorna and his Nurse Practitioner placed Mom on two potent diuretics and a.) apparently did not communicate with each other, and b.) apparently failed to follow her electrolytes. My mother's sodium went so low that she passed out and broke several vertebrae requiring long term hospitalization and rehabilitation. (Her sodium was so low - panic level - upon her hospitalization that she could have become quadriplegic ...
for life as a result.) 5.) Dr. Cantorna most recently saw my mother in follow-up after a heart valve replacement done at Rush Hospital in Chicago. She was on a new medication that is known to cause tiredness and weakness, but he told her to just keep at it for another 6-8 weeks. He also mistreated a minimally elevated potassium level by stopping ALL of her potassium when she takes 80 mg of Lasix (furosemide) per 24 hours. 6.) I would not recommend this physician. "
