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.
