CeeJay Cantu, Office Manager
Dr. Rodney is pleased to have CeeJay as our Office Manager and our daily delight. Patients rave about her warmth and manner.
In a word CeeJay is “AWESOME”. A native Floridian, she fell in love with Oriental Medicine when she was only a teenager after going through personal medical issues. She spent seven years working for different medical practices not liking something they all had in common; the patients needs never really came first. However, at The Dunetz Wellness Center, she makes sure that the patients’ needs always come first. In her spare time, CeeJay enjoys gardening, crafting, and spending time with her three children and wonderful husband.
“If I can turn one frown upside down, my day was all worth it”
CeeJay is a special part of our team!
