Huntington, NY |
I've been a patient of Dr. Cheema's for many years, and have always been satisfied with the level of care that I've received. Dr Cheema has on multiple occasions gone out of his way to make sure that I'm taken care of, and I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

I would give no stars if I could. Terrible and nothing but a pill factory. 2 minutes and a prescription was every single appointment. Even more disconcerting, he asked about our school district and talked more about that than the patient because his kids go there. Awful!

I don't think Dr. Cheema would know my name if it wasn't on the folder provided with my medical info. He doesn't even spend 5 minutes with me, and texts through the entire appointment. It feels like he forgot being a doctor would mean interacting with people. I don't feel comfortable bringing up concerns with him. I asked him whether my Lexapro was causing memory problems, and he instantly shut me down and said there was no such side effect (w/o concern for my obvious distress about it).

Dr. Cheema is a very educated, caring, intelligent, professional and ethical doctor. He has brought me through some of the most darkest periods of my life I am now 50 I've been seen dr. Cheema since I was 45 years old. I was suffering from deep depression and horrible anxiety due to menopause I don't know where I would be if it wasn't for him I didn't want to live I couldn't stop crying I could not function on a regular basis every day, his office was there for me every step of the way

One of the best experience I have with Dr. Cheema. He was very kind and his diagnosis and treatment was very accurate.
