I have been a patient of Dr. Cephas for about 8 years. He is caring, honest and straight forward. I really appreciate these qualities.

Patient abandonment
in Glen Burnie, MD |
I visited one of the other associates in his practice several years ago over the course of about a year and a half. She took me seriously. Unfortunately, at one point Dr Cephas took my case from her without my consent. Without ever having met with himself before, he gave me an incorrect diagnosis (since overridden), suggested I stop therapy, and recommended extremely inappropriate things about my personal/sex life. I stopped going after that and it shook my trust in seeing other doctors.
