My 3 kids have been coming here since birth and I've never had any issues. Never had to wait more then 10 min, Doc and staff are all so sweet and makes sure all your questions and concerns are addressed. My kids actually love coming to the doctors! It's a win-win for all of us!
My daughter loved the doctor and nurses she even asked to always come back when she need to go to her well check ups and even when she not feeling well. I felt very confident with the doctor and the staff. Will be making more appointments here!!
Me and my boys adore Dr. Cheema she is so authentic and sincere about health and being healthy.
I'm say thank Sarah doctor,
Doctor Sarah is awesome. and nurses were perfect, only the receptionist needs more customer service training. Other than that it was great experince!
She was very thorough. It was our first time here. My daughter (17), and I ,were so comfortable talking to her about all areas of adolescence. She is definitely someone I would recommend.
A family member highly recommended Dr. Sarah Cheema, and she did not disappoint. The wait time was non-existent and she was extremely patient, attentive and genuine.

She was great and very informative as well. I liked how she interacted with my child.
Best ever. Thank
Dr. Cheema is awesome. She is very knowledgeable, compassionate with an excellent bed side manner. She is thourough and provided us with a generous amount of time. She helped my teenage daughter with her anxiety and depression issues that were taking a toll on her physical health. Thank you Dr. Cheema!
she is so nice, my kids like her so much.
Dr. Cheema was great. I'm very happy we found her. She was informative without being condescending. She was absolutely amazing with our son. I highly recommend her.
It was great
I love the way she care for my kids..
She was great! Her knowledge and explaination was clear. She truly has a love for children!
Both of my daughters have received great service
Excellent care and attention, Dr. Cheema was great and explained things thoroughly.
Her staff is the worse when it comes to customer service. Rarely answer the phones at both locations and when you finally get through they are worthless. I have been trying to get shot records for the month and they wont return my calls. I was told I could retrieve the records on-line online to find out my account had been deactivated after I called to complain the first time. The doctors good but her staff is not worth the trouble. I will never recommend anyone to her practice!!
Dr Cheema and her staff are very pleasant and it's easy to book a sick child appointment with. No wait time at the office - Seen right away and on time. Dr Cheema always takes the time to educate the parents and answer questions.
The pediatrician was awesome !!
Friendly made my girl feel at ease
Dr. Cheema was very nice, very professional, took her time during the appointment.
Dr. Cheema is wonderful; gave us all her attention, took real interest in our son, did her best to make him feel easy. Wait time wasn't great, as it stressed our toddler out (1 year old) to be hanging around a doctor's office. Biggest complaint however, is that both the doctor and the nurse who gave him his shots insisted on giving him the shots in his arms, which I have found is not a *rule* in any way. I asked why he couldn't receive the shots in his thigh, and they said "it had to be done this way." My mistake for not reading up on administration of vaccines prior to getting this doc visit done. Will not go back for shots. She's great for annual check ups though.
My son is overweight (not obese) and has had anxiety issues for a while. We are new patients who just moved to the area. Our appointments felt condescending and accusatory about my kids weight and not very helpful as far as a plan to help make him healthier... just to eat better and be more active, which is pretty obvious! She didn't even ask about his anxiety or his life at all this last appointment, which is incredibly disappointing given my kids history. To top it off she insisted we come back once a month to get adhd medication refills. I have never experienced that with any doctor before and he's been on these meds for years. Pretty shady, knowing she'll be getting paid each time we come in. Who has time to go to the doctor once a month when you work full time? And for medication that is needed for his success!!
So sweet, helpful, useful information, friendly. Approachable. Calming
I lover Dr.Cheema and her staff! They are all amazing !
Nice & kind
My appointment was once again nothing short of amazing. Dr. Sarah Cheema takes her time and answers all questions. She did not rush the appointment. She took her time and was very attentive with my child. She even lets you know what things she will be discussing at the next appointment and gives you "homework" to read before the next visit.
Excelente.. they both are great doctors and the staff members are awesome too. I like the annandale office ..
