Patient Comments (1)
in Chicago, IL |
One of the best doctors I've ever had. Having serious medical issues (Lupus) the care Dr. Cheema exhibited was by far the best. She made me feel comfortable and a priority. Communication outside of office visits were prompt. I always spoke with her. After I would do my labs, she always went over them verbally to ensure I understood. There were a couple of times where a needed emergency visits, always fit me in. I would definitely recommend Dr. Cheema to anyone dealing with any kidney problems.
