"Amazing overall experience !!! Dr. Garcia & Dr. Cervantes are the BEST !!! ❤️"



"Dr. Cervantes did a great job addressing my concerns!"



"I’ve been going to Sonterra Dermatology Stone Oak for almost a year now and had amazing experiences! Dr. Cervantes is personable, takes her time to review things and listens to concerns. Cindy Pagan has been doing my Lase MD treatments and so fun and sweet, she really cares about the results of her patients! I’ve tried other offices/dermatologists at least three other times in my lifetime to help with cystic acne and always given up due to a lack of noticeable changes. I finally feel like I’m seeing a difference with the help of Sonterra Dermatology, thank you!"



"Love it! Dr. Cervantes is caring and awesome!"



"Dr. Tessa Cervantes was wonderful. She had a warm disposition, as she discussed my concerns and thoroughly communicated in detail, the treatment options available. I was incredibly pleased by her focus given to me, as a patient and care that she delivered during my visit."
