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

    She is awesome at what she does.
