Get To Know: Dr. Cantrell

Varon Cantrell, MD

Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

A:  Born and raised in Indianapolis on the East Side near the State Fair Grounds.  I have a wife of 12 years, 5 children, 8 brothers and sisters and an amazing immediate/extended family.  I love my faith, my family and my friends.  Then, I love being a servant to others.

Q: Why did you become a doctor?

A:  I believe that I was ordained to do this before I was even born.  This was not a “childhood” dream or something that I had planned.  I believe that it is a calling and I have had many mentors, family and peers who have been supportive along this journey which makes it awesome! 


Q: What do you love most about working at West Health Center?

A:  Without the patients, the clinic does not exists.  So, I love the patient, I love the community but most importantly, I love the West Health Team.  The Team is what makes the clinic go.  They are some of the most dedicated and hard working people I have ever met. 

Q: What is one thing you would like people to know about West Health Center?

A:  We are here to serve you and your families.  We are dedicated to the HealthNet Mission  and we are honored to be your new neighbors.

Background: West Health Center
This current 4,500 square foot center offers adult primary care, pediatrics, OB/GYN, behavioral health, lab and support services in an area that has seen a decrease in providers over the years.

Within the first few months of operation, the center is already vastly exceeding visit projects and plans are under way to add a Women’s Health area by renovating the remaining 1,800 square feet to include 5 additional exam rooms and a procedure room.
