Changes coming Summer 2021

It is with mixed emotions that we announce that our Nurse Practitioner, Steven Powell, will be leaving our practice.  He will be with us through the end of the summer and we will update as the time gets closer.  He has chosen to further his education and career in the specialty of Developmental/Behavioral Pediatrics.  We are very grateful for the time he has been a part the Cepero Pediatrics family.  All of our staff and patients will miss him greatly, but we are so very proud of his personal growth and that our practice gave him the foundation to advance his career into a subspecialty.

In his place, we will be getting Shannon Creedon, a nurse practitioner that is board certified in Pediatric Primary Care.  She will be starting with our practice later this year and she is excited to begin meeting our patients. 

Please join us in wishing Steven all the best in his future, and welcoming Shannon to our practice!
