I saw Dr. Cerva for my annual physical and for a nagging health complaint. I was prescribed antibiotics before even being examined. There were issues getting my labs drawn, and I ended up being stuck 4 times for the blood tobe drawn (I have never before been stuck more than once). For some reason, my insurance was not billed for the blood work, so I received a large bill from the lab. I thought all of this may have been just a bad day at the office since she was just returning from traveling. So, I gave her another chance today. I went in for back pain that recently started and is quite severe. Before even examining me, she prescribed steroids. At the end of the visit I asked why I was being prescribed steroids, and only then does she tell me what she thinks may be the root of the pain. This is not the kind of medical care that I am used to or desire to have, and I will never return.
