Great physician - takes time to listen and understand. Also has a great "bedside manner". He clearly cares about his patients and seems to love his chosen vocation. I highly respect him and would recommend him anyone needing a primary care physician.

Rude staff and he is inattentive. Only requests visits for money. It’s hard for some to make it into the office in that horrid location. Won’t return calls.

I have been a patient for the past several years. He is extremely knowledgeable and intelligent. He never rushes our office visits and is careful to make sure I understand everything that I need to know. I have had other Doctors, but none as friendly and concerned as Dr. Cherry. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone! You will not be disappointed. Dr. Cherry never over-prescribes medicines and is eager to wean you off the medications as soon as possible!

I would definitely highly recommend Dr. Cherry. He is always straight to the point regarding a patient's health. I appreciate his nurse, Lynn, as she takes excellent care of his patients too. Dr. Cherry stays in touch with the latest and greatest too!
