Verified Patient Reviews
Great service they are always concert about patients care.
We didn't meet the "Doctor" per say. I had to go out and seek her out and introduce myself to her and have her come meet my child. The nurses were very nice but would not provide all the information we needed to know, detail by detail or step by step. At the end of the visit my wife and I were confused as to wether we were done with the visit or not. Instructions were not very clear. We were 1st-time patients.
La Dr. Cepin me atendio immediatamente. El personal medico es muy amable y eficiente.
My mom has been going to Dr.Cepin for quite a few years now & she just loves Dr.Cepin & her staff. They are all very kind & professional. As a daughter with a parent that loves chatting & needs thing explained to her in detail and repeated to confirm of course I truly truly appreciate their bedside manner. I've had to call for refills &/or medications & Stephanie is a sweetheart that always takes care of the requests in a very timely manner. I can't say enough good things about Dr.Cepin & her staff, I know that weather I'm there or not My Mom is in GREAT hands & that is worth all the Gold in the world.
It was an amazing visit. Quick, positive and comfortable. The doctor and all her employees are happy and courteous. I recommend her 100%
Prescription was not sent out to the pharmacy, so I waited for one hour at the pharmacy and could not get medicines that I needed. About Lab, I had bad experienced Quest Diagnosis. Last time, I visited at Eastlake Quest Diagnosis for blood test and breath test. I waited 3 hours at there (even I made reservation), and at the time I was turned, they said that they do not understand the request of test. It was nothing for 3 hours, and I wasted time with bad feeling. Next day, I tried other place of Quest Diagnosis lab center. Again, they said unclear of the request, so they told me to call the Doctor's office to get the detail of request, but Doctor's office is always busy. They do not take a call. If they solve the problem of phone call, it will be perfect Doctor and office. They need to take a call every time because all calls are important.
Shes great .muy buena doctora
The appointment went great! The staff was very attentive and polite. Doctor Cepin explained everything in an easy to understand manner, and even gave me some very good recommendations.
Dr Cepin has a great work ethic and is very knowledgeable and helpful and doest waste your time! ??
Todo me parecio muy bien. Gracias
I am still waiting for the referral to go through to see a specialist. This is the second incident where a referral takes a lot of time. I am not completely satisfied with the way a previous referral was handled. It seems that they expect me to be the one to follow up. I called today to inquire about the recent referral, and I was told that I need to call back to speak to the referral specialist. It seems that leaving a message (for a reminder) to the referral specialist is not enough.
Mi primera visita con la Dr. Cepin fue una Buena experierncia, el trato de todo su equipo muy professional y agradable, la Dr, Monica excelente como doctor y persona, gracias a todos por su atencion

Estoy muy contenta de tenerla como mi doctora por su muy cuidadoso y profesional cuidado que nos brinda, Es una doctora con un conocimento muy completo de la interaccion de la medicina con el funcionamiento de nuestro cuerpo y siempre esta pendiente de como la medicina nos ayuda y cambiandola cuando hay alguna señal de efecto secundario y esto nos ha ayudando a estabilizar nuestra Diabetes.
Personalized service! Friendly staff!
I did not feel like I got any answers to my questions. I feel I could have gotten over the phone.
Dr. Cepin is an excellent doctor. She is very warm and caring.
Need to cut down on wait time in the lobby. Last three visits, I've waited 30+ minutes just to get to a room. Today forgot to call in prescription to my pharmacy. Had to call and leave message to follow up.
The office and rooms are very nice and the waiting room is modern and comfortable. The staff are very helpful and cheerful. Dr. Cepin is professional, caring and mostly cheerful. She listens to you, not like other doctors I've been to.
Dr. Happy was amazing! She had excellent bedside manner and was very professional and respectful. She was genuinely caring.

Been dealing with my sickness for a long time with other Dr's with no changes. Now with Dr. Cepin she is getting to the button with test and see what really the problem is, other Dr's would just give me medication with no good results. Thank you for your concern about my health.

Monica demonstrates that she cares and that is important to me.

As always very professional,friendly and understanding
She was very thorough with my sons skin condition and helpful with remedies.
It was a great pleasure to meet. Her no wait time. The only thing was the issue with my daughter prescription but rather than that great great service.
Dr. Cepin,M is a very caring doctor my health has improved very much I glad that I have her as my doctor.
very kind and attentive. She listened to what I needed and felt sympathetic to my situation/needs!
Dr. Cepin has a lot of patients because she is very good at what she does. So don't expect a quick waiting time. Be realistic. You wait at least 3 months for a follow up visit so what is an extra 30 minutes or so? She has extra help with all the little mundane tasks so she can focus on exactly what she needs when treating and evaluating your course of treatment. She goes overboard trying to get you fixed up and get you the medications (aka free samples) so you can get started right away.
could have used a little more one-on-one time with PA. had other things I wanted to go over
I love Dr. Cepin and all her patients want to chat with her but it makes for the 45-50 minute wait that we all experience. Please allow for the actual amount of time that is spent with each patient when booking appointments.
Her staff was welcoming and helpful and she is a caring physician.
She is trying to do everything she can to make my pain go away
Dr. Cepin was very professional but all the while making me feel comfortable. I did not feel rushed as I have felt in other clinics.
My experience at the office of Dr. Monica Cepin was excellent. I highly recommend this doctor. Front desk staff were friendly, and Dr. Cepin was on time and carefully listening to all my concerns. She was very communicative and accommodating to all my concerns.
I will recommend
Dr Cepin has a wonderful way with children. Her office is clean well organized and very kid friendly! Love her and her patient staff.
She was very kind and attentive to my needs. I was seen right away and she spent adequate time with me to fully understand everything I told her. I am so happy I finally found a good general practitioner as I am new to the area.
Worst experience of my life, I will never go back to this office, the manger of the office is the most rudest women I have ever come in contact with, the doctor does procedures without authorization that will leave you with a giant bill from the lap and does not confirm anything through the insurance. I have never heard of a facility doing this. As for the atmosphere the waiting room just feels disgusting and it was hard to even sit in the chairs.
I will NEVER go to this doctors office again. I'm not kidding when I say there is NO WHERE to park! The parking lot is ridiculous. Then getting to the office, very small, crowded waiting room. Then when discussing a medication I was taking with the doctor she told me "I'm surprised, usually people who take this are a lot smaller then you." I was really taken back by this and thought it was quite rude. I definitely will not be returning to this office.
She's a great doctor, and I'm glad I picked her to be my child's doctor!! I'm very satisfied!!! Thank you!
Even though there was a glitch in appt. time between ZocDoc and office,she saw me anyway and right away! Excellent staff too!
She really took time with me and my 2 kids. She is awesome!!!
Doctor Cepin has a wonderful bedside manner and put both babies right at ease. Her office is kid friendly and fun. I will be going to her not only for my kids but for my own appointments as well.
Very nice doctor, but the wait wait was outrageous! Also, after waiting an hour, the time I spent with the doctor was very rushed.
It was very good,Their very nice and helpful..
She really LISTENS
It was very pleasant, the staff were nice and helpful and Dr Cepin was extremely nice.
Dr. Cepin was very professional but really down to earth. She outlined her care program for newborns and gave us a schedule for appointments. Her office designates Tues/Wed for toddler appointments and the rest are open based on availability.
The doctor was awesome, she really listens and puts her patients in prospective. I have a 9 month old whom she sees and I explained how my daughter was acting and told her what I thought the problem was and she took my word for it and made a second look and found my daughter had fluid on her ear after she cleared out all the wax. She took her time with us and her staff was great as well.
Managed to book a same day appointment online. Super helpful staff. Dr. Cepin and her staff are both bilingual. Managed to keep wait time short even when computers where down. Very accommodating when I said my daughter didn't have insurance. Dr. Cepin was extremely nice and knowledgeable. She gave me helpful tips to help improve our eating habits. I believe I've found the right doctor for my daughter!
very good with kids. Very professional and friendly
I blindly chose a physician and ended up with an awesome doctor. I feel very lucky to have found her.
very comfortable atmosphere and seems professionally sound
