Dr. Cheney worked tirelessly to find the issue with my 17-year-old daughter’s ankle. Due to multiple gymnastics injuries, she had constant pain and was unable to even enjoy normal activities like running. Thanks to Dr. Cheney’s strong surgical skills, continued support, and guidance, my daughter has returned to all the activities she loves, including running and gymnastics! We are forever grateful.

After experiencing unstable ankles for years and having both ankles give out on me in a 10 day period, I decided it was time to address my issue. Was very impressed from my first appointment. He and his staff were very thorough in explaining the procedure, recovery time and any complications that could occur. My ankle feels stronger than ever while doing physical therapy and the scar is hardly noticeable. I have scheduled to have my other ankle ligament reconstruction scheduled in December. I highly recommend Dr. Cheny for any ankle needs you may have.

I was born with severe genetic deformities in both of my feet. I spent my entire life suffering a great deal and not having any doctors help me. I met Dr. Cheney in 2014 when he was recommended to me as the "Orthoneuro's top foot specialist," and that description is true to who he is. I have seen easily 10+ different orthopedic doctors in my lifetime and none of them listened to me the way that he does. Not one gave me the compassion and empathy that I so long sought out. He heard me, he saw me and he took many chances on me to improve my quality of life. Him treating me like a human being and educating me on my condition absolutely changed my life and my faith in orthopedics. Although my case is extremely complex, he hasn't hesitated to create new solutions and he has never given up on me. If your back is up against the wall, he's the orthopedic doctor you want in your corner! His intelligence and character is unmatched, trust me I would know. 10/10 RECOMMEND!

I thought he was competent until 2nd surgery which also failed with a nail change in between. As time went by he was not as interested in my fusion. Did not offer any resource when asked about chronic pain as a result of his surgery that is constant.

Dr. Cheney saw me in the office last month after a flare up with my foot. I have severe tendonitis, a pinched nerve in my ankle and loss of elasticity in the ankle tendons. I have spent a fortune after he requested 12 xrays of my feet and ankles and buying a walking boot. Last month he said I needed surgery due to increased pain and no relief after beginning to wear the boot again. After being in his office for over an hour with my three children, I wasn't able to ask all my questions about surgery. I asked if I could call back and ask my questions and then schedule surgery. I was told yes by the scheduling person. This ended up not being the case. I am now being told I need to make an appointment which I will have to pay at least $100 out of pocket just to ask questions about the surgery. I wouldn't have left the first visit if I knew I would have to pay again to have him answer questions. Also, I was left with lots of unanswered questions about recovery! NEW DOCTOR PLEASE!

Poor bedside manner- it was like he couldn't be bothered. Each visit is so expensive for such little value. He literally did nothing for me. I have to go to another specialist, which i am sure he knew before my second appointment. Very obviously cares about money, not patients.
