    Asked about visits with other cancer specialists that I have been seen by which was good.

    Dr. Cebulla was very easy to talk to and gave great explanations to all of my questions & medical issues. She informed me of future expectations/testing and why. She even called me when my husband left his wallet there!

    I had to wait 4 hours after testing to see Dr. Cebulla but when she did come in, she didn't seem to be in a rush. She was smiling and her voice was calm and pleasant. I was totally worn out from waiting 4 hours to see her but there was nothing I could do about that. She had to have been tired too but she didn't show it.

    Dr. Cebulla is a wonderful and caring physician. The state of Ohio is lucky to have her expertise in treating cancers of the eye.

Consulting and Related Relationships

In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
