I was a complicated case for Dr Cero and her team. I had complication of coagulation disorder with my knee surgery. Her PA , Jamie Yu, handled my case in excellent manner. The ER At Valley General, not so much! Dr Cero and her team diagnosed and rendered appropriate treatment for the complication. I give Dr Cero and her team a 4-5.

I made an appointment to get a new MRI order since i have a small tear in my rotator cuff. Dr. Cero did not want to order a MRI for me and instead kept pushing the idea of getting a cortisine injection. After having the injection now my shoulder is 10 times worse with numbness and tingling in my arm and hand. She had the worst attitude and when i asked why my shoulder constantly pops and has pain even at rest she responded with "all joints pop." I will not go back to see her.

Saw the doctor and it was maybe 5 to 10 minutes each visit. So disappointed in the way the doctor was with me. First of all without patients there is no practice. Definitely need to learn a better bedside manner. I do not recommend Dr Cero.

Dr. Cero (and the entire staff at the Joint Center at Valley Medical Center) impressed me with caring directness, professionalism, friendliness, helpfulness and organization.

Easy to talk with and understands the long term pain of OA. Dr. Cero was right on the money about my knee and now I am OA pain free.
