As a new patient I was extremely impressed by the quality and professionalism that I received. Happy I made the right choice for future health care
Staff is excellent and all concerns and questions were answered.
My husband and I had appointments together to see Dr Cerna. Her nurse Angie came in to check on us with our current meds and blood pressure and was so nice, considerate and kind. She always is! Dr Cerna comes in after Angie and is the sweetest Dr. I have ever been to see. She is always thorough and willing to spend the time to explain things and also double check things . You could not go wrong having Dr Cerna as your primary care Doctor!
Dr. Cerna is excellent with patients. I recommend her at every opportunity.
