If you want to have the worse place to go and the dumbest people this is the place to go. They lost my blood work and urine work had to go back and get it done again. Then I call the office to find out my results and they told me that they had fired the lab so I guess they lost it again. I will never to a strip mall Doctor again. I went there 4 times and maybe saw the dr. for a total of 5 minutes

A++ in every respect. From office staff and nurses to Dr. Cheatham. I can definitely recommend Dr. Cheatham. Very knowledgeable, kind, compassionate and a great listener. Spends time with you and does not rush you out the door. Great experience!

I have been a patient of Dr. Cheatham for over 4 years and my primary care for 3 of those. He takes his time when he sees me, listens and genuinely cares about my health. I have not had any problems making appointments, with usually only a short wait. He has seen me on short notice when I had the flu also. Staff are also excellent: Michael, Ruby and Holly.

My family and friends have been patients of Dr Cheathams for over 10 years. And for the last 2 years he has never seen any of us. Between his PA's and Nurse Practiinioners his practice has shamefully gone to the gutter. We will never make another appointment there. And his right hand nurse Holly is even worse. Never returns phone calls and the whole practice is a bunch of lazy people. Do not ever make an appointment here unless you like to be ignored and not treated like a patient. Sickening.

Dr.Cheatham is a very likable doctor who takes his time to listen,very easy to talk to and explains his treatment well! Since I was new to the country,had concerns about the healthcare system.A big problem occurred with one staff member by phone,as I didn't understand what she was talking about.When I met her in person,reminding her on the misunderstanding,she reacted in a way I didn't get.2days later I was asked to not come back,blamed to be a racist.I was so shocked!!Don't get it up today!!!

Worst experience I’ve ever had with a doctor and front of house staff. I asked to speak with the doctor three times and he keeps having someone else call. Seems all about getting his copay and really nothing else. All he does is refer you out to other doctors, not sure what I was paying for. Avoid this “doctor”!
Dr. Cheatham's primary concern is his patients health. It's important that his patients follow certain guidelines and requirements and be compliant in their own healthcare as well. When certain patients choose not to be, and present themselves in a rude, disrespectful manner, they often blame others and not themselves.

Dr Cheatham has amazing bedside manners, he truly spends time listening to your concern or questions. He cares about his patients and wants what is best for them.

Dr. Cheatham has excellent bed side manner. He treats me as though I am his only patient and there is this level of confidence that puts you at ease.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
I have never felt so rushed with a physician. Went to establish care and spent a total of two minutes with Dr. Cheatham. All he did was run labs and never discussed anything further. He seemed like he just wanted a lightning fast visit so he could bill my insurance company. Also, the customer service you will receive from his office is despicable. I have been trying to get a copy of my small chart for months and was told they will only release in person although i have moved. Horrible.
