Dr Cheij is a great doctor. I was really bad off when I came into his office, unable to walk, in a wheelchair. He was nice enough to help my mother and wheel me out to the car, even run back to his office and grab me sunshades for my dilated eyes. He is a very caring man and will spend time explaining your condition to you.

Dr. Check did my first cataract surgery and did a wonderful job. He is very kind and easy to talk with.
