Meet Dr. Cerna

Some people have the soul of a dancer. Others have the soul of a family practice doctor. Norma Cerna, MD, has both. She has studied dance since she was a child and participated in dance competitions in high school and college. Latin folklore, Latin American folklore, country, salsa, two-step, or jitterbug. She has it covered. She no longer competes but uses dance for exercise and stress relief.

Trained as a family practice physician, she loves the interaction with patients as relationships are formed. She relishes the trust that is built between patient and physician just as she appreciates the high level of trust between Shannon, the doctors, the nurses and the staff. She also loves how warm and welcoming the community of San Angelo has been to her and her family.

Also, Dr. Cerna met her husband, Colby, at Leon Springs Country Dancehall. He is not a bad dancer himself!
