Dr. Cekeda is the best doctor I have ever had. I trust her completely and feel so fortunate to have her as my physician.

from Nancy in CA March 10, 2018 for Gayle Cekada, MD

Dr. Cekada listens and comes up with a solution. She takes the time to ask many questions. As her patient, sometimes it can be as simple as stress or as serious as cancer and she treats each visit just as important. Iqf I read or have question about a medical condition, Dr. Cekada will always have information for me. I feel important to the doctor.

Dr. Cekada is amazing! She caught my valley fever early -- when it's difficult to diagnose and easiest to treat. Without her diligence, follow-up and expertise I would have been much sicker. Thank you, Dr. Cekada, for being there for me!

Dear Dr. Gayle,
We are so grateful to have you for our doctor! Your expertise and compassion make difficult health issues more tolerable. We actually consider you more than just our doctor, but also our friend.
