I love Dr. Cellar and her nurse, Molly. My daughter believes that I am alive today because of suggestions from Dr.Cella and because I followed her suggestions for having a lung exray which showed that I had cancer. This was 5 years ago and I am still alive and kicking. Also my sugar was high so I again did what Dr. Cella said to do and got it down. Thank you Dr. Cella and Thank you GOD !!

Dr. Cella has been our family physician for many years and both my wife and I find her to be the consummate professional. She takes the time to know each patient's medical history and asks the right questions to draw out the details that many physicians overlook. We feel fortunant to have found someone we feel we can call whenever a health issue or illness developes.
