My son became very ill and was admitted to the hospital. Dr. Cepeda was one of the first doctors that we saw. We liked her immediately. She was kind, caring, patient with all of our many questions and explained things to us so that we could understand. I would highly recommend her!!! She helped diagnosis my son's illness and is working well with him to get his hypertension under control. He likes going to his appointments because she is so personable. I am so thankful for her!!

She did not even know if our child was a boy or girl upon entering the room. She doesn’t do any background work before your appointment. Fortunately, we trusted our gut and went for a second opinion. Our new doctor did not agree with her plan for our child. She will sit and talk with you. However, it is very clear she is not as competent as other doctors. She even asked me, “what have you read about this on the internet?” I’m pretty sure she relies on Google often. I was not impressed at all.

We saw Dr. Cepeda while my son was in the hospital. She was friendly and cheerful, as well as very knowledgeable, and understanding of the patient's situation. Dr. Cepeda was willing to spend as much time with us as we needed, and answered all questions we had. She was optimistic and encouraging, giving good information about an unfamiliar diagnosis and dietary restrictions in a calm and confident manner. We highly recommend Dr. Cepeda!

Great service! Dr. Cepeda was very thorough and took her time to explain what was going on which is different that a lot of doctors that are busy to rush you out the door!
