When I first got sick, my doctor was Dr. Guy McCoy but when he retired, I was given Dr. Cerda. When my creatinine numbers were getting higher and higher, he was very disinterested and kept telling me I was fine. Then I was handed off to an Physicians Assistant. I left the practice and saw Dr. Chaffin in Syracuse. When he saw my records and lab results, he told me we needed to talk about dialysis or a transplant. Thankfully he was able to help me with meds. Dr. Cerda would have ruined my health.

Dr. Cerda took excellent care of me when I was sick with kidney disease (classic nephrotic syndrome a.k.a. minimal change disease. He is very professional, personable and an awesome doctor who really knows his specialty! he was referred to me by Emergency Medicine physicians (I previously worked for during my illness) at Albany Med who held him in very high regard, and I'm sure they still do. I have been in full remission since 1999. Thank you Dr. Cerda!
