This dr shouldn't have a medical license. He was dangerous and dismissive with my 4 month old. He said everything was normal, and I was just a new mom. I was told the next day at the hospital that if I'd waited much longer, she would've died. She had a staph infection in her chest and sepsis. We spent a week in the hospital just for dr Cheshire to be equally as dismissive when he removed her piccline 2 weeks later. Children are in moved in and out like cattle. All about the money.

When your breastfeeding he is not supportive,very quick to advise formula instead of helping with breastfeeding or recommending a Lactation Consultant. Breastfeeding is best and very hard true do without him being condescending and telling you to supplement. I have breastfed before and know what's going on, I feel bad for new moms that need HELP to be successful.

Dr. Cheshier has been our pediatrician since 2005. He and his staff are wonderful! He has not always said what I want to hear, but he has never steered me wrong. I highly recommend him!
