I LOVED HER! I traveled 40 minutes to see her and will do it again!
She is very professional with a gentle soul!
Wonderful visit, extremely informative.
Great doctor with a caring and helpful demeanor! I'll be recommending her to my family and friends. The staff was also so nice and went out of their way to be awesome.
Doctor Cantatore was excellent, I could not have expected a better experience. She made sure I was comfortable and not in any pain. I will certainly recommend the Doctor to family and friends.
My visit with Dr. Cantatore-Francis is exactly what I'd hope to expect. She was very pleasant, as was the office staff and medical assistant. She was very thorough, answered all of my questions very clearly, and provided follow-up information that will be very helpful.
Dr. Cantatore was very pleasant and answered all of my questions. The office was nice & cheerful. The wait time was a little on the long side & my prescriptions were called into the wrong pharmacy (after I had written on the form & was asked in person which pharmacy I always use). Otherwise, had a nice experience. I plan on returning this practice.
I had a mole that had been bothering me for almost 2 weeks and it was off within minutes of my appointment. Julie is so sweet and friendly while having a passion for what she does. Highly recommend!
Well I was pleased until she assured me that a prescription was sent to my pharmacy and when my husband went to pick up the prescription no prescription was faxed to them
This is the first doctor I've been to since going to my Pediatrician two years ago. I've never really felt comfortable going to the doctor but I had a rash on my stomach and arms and decided that enough was enough. The Nurse I met was VERY nice and greeted me with a smile (I believe her name was Gosha). When the doctor came in a few minutes later she instantly made me feel comfortable by her warm welcome and positive attitude. She checked my rashes and decided to prescribe me something, which was sent right to my Pharmacy so I could pick it up on my way home! I highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of Dermatologist! My rash is getting better even after just 5 applications of the ointment!
Dr. Cantatore was so wonderful and made me feel so comfortable! I was a little nervous/embarrassed about having a whole-body mole check, but she was incredibly kind and informative. She took time to explain things to me clearly and did not rush through my visit. I will absolutely return to see her again in the future.
Extremely kind, thorough and professional. I can't wait to build a trusting and long term relationship with this doctor. She is compassionate and takes time to answer all of your questions in depth.

I used ZocDoc to look for a new dermatologist in the area and it worked really well for me. I would highly recommend Dr. Cantatore-Francis. I was able to get an appointment right away.
