He is caring and listens to my problems. My anxiety is under control since I started seeing him. I do not like the PA, she seem clueless.

The doctor doesn’t even show up to appointments, his clueless PA/nurse practitioner does. I waited 30 minutes past my appointment time, was called back, and quickly realized I was not even seeing a doctor. As a new patient, it would have been nice to know I wasn’t seeing the actual physician beforehand (so I could have cancelled the appointment and saved my time). The PA is a nice lady, but should not be seeing new patients and prescribing medications on her own- I understand if I had been

My grown son and I have been seeing Dr. Cephas and staff for over 10 years in his Takoma Park office. He and his wife used to be caring. However, since he began his office in Glen Bernie (and also may teach classes in New York) his services have deteriorated.

This office is awful, cephas doesn't know anything about me or my symptoms and doesn't try to learn, no time spent with me. And his PA is even worse, she sits, doesn't speak, and just sends scripts in. I could be having a nervous breakdown and they wouldn't know, stay away!

I am sure Dr. Chephus is a nice guy but his staff is ghetto and rude. They always have to reschedule appointments and berate you when you have to miss one. They constantly overbook and never see you on time. If you get an appointment you will wait anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to be seen. I told them I was fed up with there horrible service and in return they said they will see me one more time and will never see me again. Stay away.

DO NOT GO HERE! I scheduled an appointment with this doctor, but when I showed up for the appointment, I was seen by his PA, someone by the name of Fugoo, who was very nasty to me and refused to write a prescription for my medication, and accused me of lying about taking my medication. Even after I called my pharmacist in her presence, who verified my medication while on speaker phone, she still refused to refill my prescriptions. I will never go back to this doctor's office again.

Do not ever go to any of the doctors with MRC if you want any help! I met with a psychiatrist in their glen Burnie office. She barely talked and did not try to get to know me as a patient. She took out her medication book and told me to pick one. No discussion about what's best! I gave her one more chance and went for a follow up. She was 45 mins late and she saw me for 2 mins. No problem solving with my meds that weren't helping. All stayed the same. It was the worst experience! Stay away!

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