Dr. Cervera was my hematologist for two years. I found him to be very personable, thoughtful, respectful, efficient. He listened to my concerns and clearly answered my questions. He did not over prescribe or under prescribe medication. I would recommend him to anyone with a blood disorder.

Stephanie Brown in Louisville, KY – Sep 19, 2018
We dealt with him with pancreatic cancer. He does not like anyone questioning any of his recommendations and is egocentric. Does not return important calls and won't write prescriptions for meds that help with anxiety dealing with end stage cancer. We switched providers and the disparity is great. The new Dr is empathetic and caring.
