Can't say enough about how impressed I have been with Dr. Cheson; I really, truly can't give him more praise. If I could give it 10 stars out of 5, I would. He is extremely professional! I received care that has a reputation for, and was proven to a lot of people, as the best in the world. Unbelievable diagnostic capabilities. Without a doubt, this is the standard that all Doctors should be held to! RM

This doctor is, basically, a research type of Dr. And he has earned a reputation in that field. I can’t question his knowledge but I think he should have remained in that field and never havhe to deal with humans/patients. He does not show empathy but rather a dry, sarcastic humor. No talent for “touching” a patient. No patience, rather an office bureaucrat at this point. Don’t count on him at all for emergencies nor for any questions you may have out of office hours.
