Dr. Cella has been my doctor for years for many reasons. She is very thorough with her exams while giving me plenty of her time to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. I highly recommend her as your primary physician. She is more than just a doctor...she is my friend!

I have been a patient of Dr. Cella for almost twenty years and I have been very pleased with her. She never rushes through the exam or consultation and is always available to listen to whatever problems or issues that you are experiencing. She is also very prompt as far as your appointment time is concerned and I have never had to wait longer than a few minutes before being called back once I arrived.
in Richmond, VA |
I value the positive experiences that I have had for the past 10 plus years under the care of Dr. Cella. She enters the examination room with a smile and a noticeable calm presence. I always feel that I have her full attention when I am relaying my concerns. She checks and rechecks to see if all of my questions and concerns have been addressed; in addition to explaining the diagnosis and treatment. I trust her decisions which have contributed to my good health and well-being.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback!

Dr. Cella is the best primary care physician my family has known!
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.
I had a chronic sore throat for two years and had to constantly go back to Dr. Cella because of this. Each time I was given a prescription for antibiotics and she never did anything else. I ended up seeing an ENT specialist out of frustration and upon my first visit, I was diagnosed with chronic tonsillitis. Something as simple as this should have been diagnosed easily by Dr. Cella and it would have saved me countless doctor visits, antibiotic prescriptions and un-needed worry.

I have been a patient of Dr Cella for quite a few years, and recently went to a previously scheduled annual physical. When I got to the exam room I told the nurse I wasn't going to have the exam, I needed to talk with dr cella. My husband had died suddenly the prior week, and I was upset, anxious and confused. Dr. Cella could not have been more comforting, reassuring, and helpful. Her flexibility in rescheduling my physical was appreciated.
