I thoroughly appreciated her approach to me, my health information and review of this information, explanation of my status and what was the next step. Easy to have confidence in her understanding of my health and what to do from here.

Sep 29 2019

Review for Dr. Susan Ciampaglia, DO

Can someone tell me where Dr. Cheshty is practicing? I would go any length to see her but the practice couldn’t share. The women’s center is not the same without Dr. Ceshty. I never forget the day she looked me in the eye to console me and let me know all would be fine.

Sep 28 2019

Review for Dr. Sadiya Cheshty, MD

The best, most caring, most thorough, thoughtful family Dr. ( along with Dr. Sallavanti ) in lancaster county. The staff and nurses have always been friendly and caring ( at least for the past 25 + yrs. since I have been going ), and the wait time is normal for a family Drs. office.

Sep 26 2019

Review for Dr. John Cotter, MD

Outstanding knowledge and communication skills. I left feeling very good about my condition and the treatments available.
