My experience with Dr. Cerami was wonderful, explicit, caring and professional. There was minimal wait time and the staff was polite. The office is clean, calming and there isn’t wait time once you go to the back. I would highly recommend Dr. Cerami and his team.

My visit with Dr. Cerami is always excellent. He is personable, he cares, he spends the time and always make me feel as if I am only patient he has to attend to. His Nurse puts me at ease and is very reassuring. She makes eye contact - and really listens, The staff is great and the wait is not long. I always have time to make it to work.

Dr. Cerami is very caring. I wasn't feeling well that day swollen feet and high blood pressure. I called the office and one of the receptionists said he was booked that day and could see me the following week. I insisted and told her to tell him of my problem and he saw me that afternoon and I did have a blood pressure problem.

I was told I need to get evaluated by a cardiologist due to a abnormal EKG me being 40 it was truly nerve wrecking. I have to say from the moment I walked in the staff was very nice. Next day I had to come in for an echo and the tech (Raul)was amazing. What a nice and professional person. The office manager as well was there and she was super attentive, informative and helpful. I am a Director of Operations for health centers and closely watch things like this. Keep up the great work!

I've been a patient of Dr. Cerami for well over 5 years and trust his judgement. He takes his time to explain various options available instead of prescribing medications-something quite rare these days.

The office staff was friendly but obviously annoyed that I had an appt through health grades and not aware of my appt. Despite that they were accommodating to me. The medical staff listen and make you feel comfortable. Dr. Cerami took the time to listen, converse and devise a plan without making you feel like a number.

What I like about Dr Cerami is he really listens to what you are saying, ask questions and will review your chart to come up with a plan or solution to try. When I leave his office I feel good about the visit even if I've received "not so good of news".
