Dr. Mirela Cernaianu, or “Dr. C.” as her patients call her, opened her private practice, Hera Healthcare, so that she could provide compassionate and holistic medical care that reflects her own values. Women living in and around Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks, California, find that Dr. Cernaianu’s focus on their individual needs, and her willingness to take the time to know them, motivate them to achieve and maintain vitality and wellness.

Dr. Cernaianu attended medical school at Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, Romania. After completing her internship and residency training in obstetrics and gynecology at University Hospital Bucharest, she became a clinic instructor and then Assistant Professor in Obstetrics and Gynecology at University Hospital in Bucharest, Romania.

After relocating to New Orleans, Dr. Cernaianu completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Louisiana State University, then went on to achieve multiple board certifications, as well as a Fellowship in Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine.

After practicing obstetrics and gynecology at a clinic in Florida, Dr. Cernaianu moved to California, where she served as the Chair of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Oxnard, California. She worked at the Clinicas del Camino Real in Ventura County for more than a decade, where she proudly provided holistic health services to those who relied on the clinic for their medical care. She started her own practice so that she could focus on truly personalized care for each individual patient.

When she’s not helping patients, Dr. Cernaianu is dedicated to practicing and teaching yoga. She’s a 200-hour certified yoga teacher and is working to achieve her 300-hour certification.

Jamie Molloy


Jamie graduated from C.E.T in Oxnard as a certified medical assistant. Her dream of working in the medical field started many years ago. She had all 4 of her children born premature and she spent a lot of time in the N.I.C.U units, which is where her dream of working in the medical field started. She put her dream on hold and raised her boys working for 15yrs in the grocery business as a cashier. When her youngest was old enough she decided to go back to school and change careers. She was introduced to Dr. Cernaianu by her school instructor and a friend who did her externship with HERA Health Care. “I heard amazing things from them both. That’s when I knew Dr. C had amazing values and I wanted to work for her.

Mercedes Ramirez


Mercedes has always wanted to work in the medical field but she became a mother at a very young age and decided to take care of her children first. As they became older it was time for her to pursuit her dream. “In my spare time I love to spend time with my husband and children, we love camping, the beach and baseball”. She recently graduated from the Conejo Valley Adult school as an Administrative and Clinical medical assistant as well as Phlebotomist. She was recommended to Dr. Cernaianu at a time when the practice needed help in the summer of 2017 and she impressed all staff with her calm demeanor, hard work and willingness to help. She joined the staff of HERA Health Care in Jan 2019.

Kaylee Thompson

Receptionist part time

I am currently a student studying at Charter College in Oxnard to become a Certified Medical Administrative Assistant. I enjoy anything outdoors, from hiking, horseback riding, dirtbike riding, and anything I can do with my family because I have two young boys. I was previously an assistant manager for a company that focused on skincare and making people feel beautiful. I found Dr. Cernaianu’s practice and instantly loved what she has to offer. I had a passion for skincare from my previous job, and Dr. Cernaianu’s office provides a combination of various laser treatments amongst holistic restorative care to her patients. There are different treatments to fit different patient needs, and I love that!
