New Haven, CT |
I finally found a Physician who cared for the patient and didn't succumb to the system. She practices great medicine and if she doesn't know something about a medication or its interaction, she immediately looks it up! I am saddened to have moved and lost access to the care she provided me. As a retired health professional, I had been disappointed in many other providers. Dr Cefalu is truly a physician who cares!

Dr Cefalu is a highly educated physician who always has the time to listen and explain things throughly. She is caring and understanding. Her staff is the best always polite and ready to help. Combine Dr Cefalu with her staff and you get the best physician's group in North Port. I would recommend the group to anyone.

Highly recommended. Laid back, yet very professional atmosphere. Very thorough and caring !!

Dr. Cefalu has been my primary care physician since I moved to her area over four years ago. She has always been friendly, polite, professional, and her knowledge and competence have been proven many times over. Since she left a group practice to start her own, she has built a staff of fine people with the same attributes that she displays herself. I can recommend her without reservation.

I was a new patient to Dr. Cefalu today, and I just thought she was so great! She really listened to what I was saying, and spent time with me. As a new patient, it's so nice to feel like more than just a number on a chart! Would definitely recommend her!
in North Port, FL |
I liked her for a while, but after seeing her for a couple of years it became clear that she just didn't pay attention. Every time I saw her it was like we were meeting for the first time, and she obviously didn't even glance at my chart before coming in. Definitely does not inspire confidence.
in New York, NY |
I find her to be a caring, competent physician, with a bed side manner, second to no one, and her staff is just as competent, an asset to her office.
in North Port, Florida |
I have had her since I moved to Florida over three years ago. She is a great MD.Her staff members are organized and make you feel comfortable when you arrive. I feel like she really listens to your symptoms before she reacts. I really appreciate that fact the she gives me time.I don't feel rushed. You feel like a patient not just another number. Thanks for the outstanding service you and your staff provide.
