Fantastic Doctor! I am 78 & find that Dr. Cheema ranks among the top 5 Doctors I have seen in my lifetime! He is attentive, a good listener & as "down to earth" as one can get.

I’ve been a patient of Dr CHEEMA for 15 years! My husband & I see him. He LISTENS well & typically knows what the problem is , if not he follows through, also never hesitates to recommend a specialist. He is kind, personable & cares about his patients! We feel extremely fortunate to have him as a Doctor

Dr Cheema has been my primary doctor for many years. He is an excellent doctor, extremely knowledgeable and has always made me feel very comfortable, which made it easy to talk about ANY issues I had going on. Throughout the years he has seen me through all my issues, big and small and sometimes, he was just there to "listen". As far as my health, I have complete trust in Dr. Cheema. He cares about his patients!

Front desk office incompetent. Lost new patient paperwork ... had to resubmit. . Unable to get through to office staff. This facility has a scheduling office in Leesburg. Over the last three days I have been on hold, waiting to speak to a PERSON well over half an hour each call. Then, when I finally did receive a live person, I was told the office manager was "in a meeting" only to discover when I called back that she wasn't even in the office. POOR staff service / communication!

I really like Dr. Cheema. He is pleasant and very helpful. I can call his office anytime for my refills and they call them in. I think his attentiveness to listening to me is kind and that he is going to help in any way he can. He is easy to talk to and takes time to listen. And sends you to other specialist when needed. This is pertaining to the Leesburg Office

Didn't like that he said I was morbidly obese which my wife Googled and I'm not! Don't know why he said it. I had been happy until that comment with Dr Cheema.

My first visit with Dr. Cheema went well. He listened to what I had to say and answered all of my questions. He sent me on to a couple of specialist and I was able to see those doctors in good time. I would recommend this doctor.
