Review from A. | Source: Healthgrades | May 21, 2019
“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Cerio since 2014 when I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. My case was a difficult one and I received extraordinary care with the best possible outcome. Throughout my treatment, Dr. Cerio always made me feel special and was able to make me smile during some of my darkest times.. I always looked forward to my appointments, even when I was afraid. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr. Cerio is a skilled surgeon and artist. His office staff is outstanding. The line of communication between me, Dr. Cerio and his staff was excellent. I was never kept waiting. I was given all the time I needed and had all my concerns and questions addressed. Now that my reconstruction is complete, I’ve been diagnosed with a few basal cell carcinomas on my face. The mohs surgery left a large hole which Dr. Cerio skillfully closed for me. I highly recommend Dr. Cerio for any plastic surgery needs you may have.”
