in Gilbert, AZ |
I was anxious about my medical condition and the financial aspects related to the treatment, but Dr Cerneka and Lori, the front office staff, were extremely empathetic and caring. They addressed my concerns and provided all information needed for a smooth process. I will recommend Dr. Cerneka to anyone that needs surgery.
