What People Say About Dr. Mario Cerame, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
It was a late night crisis situation where Dr Mario Cerame operated on my brother for a homorrhaging ulcer. He quickly explained the pros and cons and proceeded to resuscitate my brother do the repairs and close up the incision. It was done so skillfully that my brother suffered minimal pain and within 24 hours was was up and moving around his room. he had no complications from the surgery. I would confidently recommend him.

After being in the hospital in severe pain for a week Dr. Cerame was sent to review my case... 3 days after seeing him for the first time I was diagnosed, surgery performed and released from the hospital. Very informative and excellent bedside manner!! I would definitely recommend seeing this amazing man to anyone

We finally met Dr. Cerame. We had heard so much about him from other friends. He was everything they said. He took the time to ask questions, and the questions really made me know that he knew what he was talking about. He let us know what he recommended and spent no time getting down to fixing the problem. I am so glad that my great aunt got him as a doctor. He was so courteous that he let my aunt eat lunch instead of pushing it aside and doing the exam while she was still eating
