in Albany , NY |
Arrogant attitude! Refered by a surgeon that moved out of the area that had been treating my condition for 8 months, and recomended discectomy. Cheney said everything my referring doctor had done to the present was wrong! Gave me meds and said to return to normal life. Six weeks on meds......NO CHANGE! Called to set up a follow up and was told no follow up neceaasry! Another big box store practice-quantity over quality! Meanwhile my pain is unbearable and frustration immeasurable.

Dr. Cheney saved my life after a severe spinal fracture that almost left me paralyzed. Thanks to Dr. Cheney's incredible job on my emergency surgery, I recovered completely and have almost full mobility and ability to do all the sports I loved before my accident. Can't recommend him enough.

Laminectomy surgery was a waste of time and money. Arrogant attitude, lack of caring and spending at least one hour in waiting room, every time.

I was in pain for a few years and went to several doctors within this practice. They did nothing. The best thing I did was switch to Dr. Cheney. I had Lumbar Stenosis that needed to be corrected by surgery. Thanks to Dr. Cheney, I am on the mend. I highly recommend him! If you go to the Bone and Joint Center and see another doctor..don't hesitate to switch to him. I did. Even though it was a little awkward...I'm glad I did it.

I had gone to two other Ortho doctors before being lucky enough to see Dr. Cheney. I had two ruptured disks and narrowing of my spine at the base. This caused pain to shoot down my leg. I also had numbness in my foot. Nothing any previous doctor did helped at all. Dr. Cheney corrected the problems by surgery and I have had significant relief from the nerve pain and back pain. I would recommend him highly. He also has a very good bedside manner.

Dr. Cheney is awesome! I was told by another ortho I might need disc surgery and I was so nervous. He looked at all my charts but didn't see anything that matched the pain I was in. He prescribed some stretches and PT but I left disappointed knowing something more was wrong. An hour after I left he personally called me and said he was looking over my charts and noticed my arthritis tripled in the 2 years between MRI's. He blood tested me for ankylosing spondylitis and I had it. So grateful.
