Dr. Cheema is a gentleman and nothing but the best. I was referred by my primary care physician and have received the upmost care from Dr. Cheema since then. He listens, understands and treats at the highest level.

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.
