I just transferred to Dr. Cheatham, after having such a horrible physician. Dr. Cheatham is a breath of fresh air!! He listens, gives you options on ways to keep you in the best of health, along with having a knowledge of your situation. I find him and his staff quite competent!! I would recommend highly and have done so. Great Doctor!

I have used Dr. William Cheatham as my primary physician for well over a decade. I am a male in my mid-50s & get my yearly exams & his opinion or solution ever since my first visit when I moved from Jupiter to Ft. Lauderdale in 2005. I found Dr Cheatham & his staff to be a 1st class operation. Family Medicine is a solid Medical Practice. I believe there are still some of the original staff members still there from 10+ years ago. Holly, Ruby & Michael are attentive, friendly & knowledgeable.

Dr Cheatham is one of a kind! He is a very professional and knowledgeable physician that only wants the best for his patient. As a medical professional myself I can sincerely say that I wish MORE physicians would be MORE Straightforward and Honest! If you have questions he will try his best to answer them. A physician that will guide you the correct way the first time!!! Dr Cheatham reviews ALL LABS with his patients, explaining in detail which was GREAT!! Knowing your health status is the BEST

READ THIS! Been going to Dr. Cheatham for years, until the practice went downhill in a major way. Dr. Cheatam is getting ready to move to N. Carolina and is squeezing every last dollar out of this office. Soon it will be a new Dr., hopefully with a more patient friendly attitude. For example want a prescription refill, expect to go in every 30-60 days. They will not even refill basics meds for six months like every other Dr.. Told me the law changed, but when I spoke to other Dr's, they said tha

Never have I encountered such a Doctor who was so unprofessional. Here's my experience: A Doctor who doesn't introduces himself to a new patient. Yells at his staff from accross the room for things he needs. Was told to do bloodwork for one price but was charged another. A Doctor who calls his patient Odd cause I was upset not angry at his actions on giving me a hard time. Told me I irritated him because I questioned his actions. he told me to find another Dr who is more empathetic to my needs.

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”!

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.
