Dr Cera is exceptional. Removed my gallbladder and treated my sister for diverticulitis. We both had colonoscopies without a problem. Would highly recommend her .The nicest and most compassionate Dr. Lucky to have her in this area.

Dr. Cera has great "patient bedside" skills. She takes time to explain things and you can tell she empathizes with your situation. This carries through to her support staff/team as well. Would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Susan Cera!
