Our visit was very prompt and on time. We are very new to this area and having a bit of trouble finding a proper medical service. And when our little daughter got sick, we got really worried cause we had never been to a doctor here. But Dr. Abdussalam Cheema (as his name it states) really gave us a peace of mind. Very professional, caring and friendly, he explained everything very informative and easy. I highly recommend Dr. Cheema to anyone who needs pediatric services.

Dr. Cheema's practice is well-run, on time, and professional from front-desk greeting to farewell. Dr. Cheema, as well, is thorough and professional. He goes through symptoms, moves through the physical exam, and is an excellent diagnostician. He is not going to over-medicate, or medicate where it isn't necessary. It's hard to see your baby suffer through symptoms, and it's your instinct to want relief from them immediately, but not always the best route to med-up. In our case, we needed antibiotics to fight an illness and severe cough lasting over seven days. I feel confident knowing that Dr. Cheema went conservative (yet efficient) on med dosage. This was our first visit with him. I had a few other doctors I'd planned on seeing before choosing our next Pediatrician, but feel confident enough to end my search here, based on Dr. Cheema's excellent reviews, friendly and efficient practice, the doctor's diagnostic skills, trust in his therapeutic approach, kid-friendly manner, and excellent communication.

Dr. Cheema is a wonderful doctor. He explains everything to you, and he explains it in a manner that you can understand. Love him, he's amazing, I wouldn't change my child's doctor for anything. In fact he was working in Alexandria at a clinic and when i found out he had left i searched for him and followed him to where he is now. Like i said the best doctor you can have. Hope hes in business for many years, because I still have a 9 year old.

Other than the insanely unacceptable wait, Dr. Cheema was his usual friendly, kind and awesome self! His staff are equally pleasant and helpful. This is the first time A doctor's office has completed a school entrance physical form for me on the spot. Usually, they'll have you come back or try to charge a fee. I was very impressed.

Courtesy and wait time is always great here; I have no complaints there. But generally, I am frustrated about taking my son for something that seems like an infection and each time, the answer is wait it out. When my two year old is miserable, can;t sleep most nights and can barely breathe, wait it out does not feel good at all. Makes me just not want to go to the doctor anymore because there is no point. Other than that, Dr. Cheema is always wonderful, kind and caring.

Dr. Cheema has been great since day one. He is very patient with the many questions I have as a new mom. I am always well informed with what is or has been going on with my daughters health. He also makes it easy to access medical records, schedule appointments or ask questions via the patient portal. If only there were more doctors like him.
