Davis, CA |
Dr. Cheema is incredibly intelligent. He is also very engaging, cordial and attentive. He takes the time to make sure you understand your Rheumatoid condition and options for treatment. His treatment recommendations are very calculated since he is trying to minimize any unnecessary compromise of your immune system.

We go in every 3 months and do nothing. I think we are waiting for the eventual autopsy to make a diagnosis
