Dr. Cheetham spent time listening and explaining everything and didn’t rush me in and out like so many NYC doctors do. She also seems to try to take a holistic approach and not throw prescriptions at you. One of the firstthings she did was give me her card with her personal cell and told me not to hesitate to reach out to her any time. That’s really unusual in New York. I had to wait a while in the waiting room, but am happy to do so if the doctor spends plenty of time listening and answering questions as she did.

Her medical background & credentials are well-documented, so I won't even touch that. I want to instead focus on her personality. She'd turn down or postpone a surgery just to make sure you're completely ready with all your questions answeredbefore rushing into it. And she absolutely makes you feel comfortable with everything. And she's hilarious! Doctors are never funny; that's so rare. She's a genuine people-person, and that's refreshing in this industry of money-grubbing & unexpected bills galore. A+s all across the board!

If the forms on ZocDoc aren't updated... then update them. It is unacceptable to book an appointment for 12:00 (obviously people with appointments at that time are coming in from work during lunch break) and not being seen until 1:15.

I saw Dr. Cheetham for the first time in 2015 and had a good experience with her. Fast forward 2 years, I booked an appointment with her a month ago, only for her office to call me to reschedule twice-once theday of, after I had already taken tne afternoon off of work. They gave me an appointment 3 weeks later. After waiting for an hour (I got there early but it had been 45 min past my appointment time), I asked the receptionist how much longer because I had to go back to work. 5 minutes later the doctor comes out and calls me out in front of everyone in the waiting room, saying that if I am in a rush I should leave because she won't be able to see me for another 20 min. She spoke in a very condescending tone and was incredibly rude about the whole situation, acting like I had waited 5 minutes and was being impatient. I was so embarrased I left and will definitely not see her again. Please work on your bedside manners Dr. Cheetham.

I thought that the receptionist was a bit disorganized and didn't have a handle on the patients arriving and being seen. There were some technical difficulties happening with their computer, but overall I got the feeling that the receptionist was new to the office and still learning her job.

One of the reasons I selected Dr. Cheetham when I needed a urologist was the uniformly excellent reviews for her on Zocdoc and I was happy to find them very well-deserved. She's friendly, funny, and puts you at ease. She spenta good amount of time thoroughly discussing the issue that brought me in, as well as identifying areas to watch based on some recent tests, which my GP did not, and giving me clear steps to take ahead of further evaluation. Honestly, probably one of the best doctors I've ever visited.

I found Dr. Cheetham right here on Zocdoc and I could not be more satisfied with my choice. Had to switch from my old urologist due to change in insurance. Her staff was very friendly and Dr. Cheetham herself was alsofriendly & and very nice. Just before my examination she took me into her office for about 20 minutes to discuss my reasons for coming to her as well as how to take care of my prostate. After she took me to an exam room where one of her assistants took blood for the PSA. Had to wait for a little while after the blood take but she came in and examined me and found my prostate normal and said that I don't have to return again for another year.

She was very brief and highly organized herself--however her team was a bit scattered. I waited 10 minutes for them to run my credit card after we had established that I owed a co-pay (they initially thought I didn't but Iknow my insurance policy so had to insist as to not be back-billed via snail mail months later). After watching them run around and multi-task while my card sat on a table for 10 minutes I had to get it back before they could bill so I could catch a car... Prioritize people standing in front of you vs. off-handed demands from the boss as she runs back in forth to appointments...very ADD...
