I'm very happy that I found such a wonderful pediatrician for my children. Dr. Sara Cheema thoroughly listens and responds to all my questions and concerns. Even though my children are still fairly new patients, she remembers their names. Iappreciate the most how she interacts and carries conversations with my children. She checks up on their previous concerns and answers to their new ones. Her voice is very comforting and sweet. Dr. Cheema is always patient, kind and nurturing. My children feel very comfortable and trusting with her. The facility is always clean and hygienic. The waiting room has toys for children and a T.V. playing kid friendly shows. I've never had to wait no more than three minutes to be seen. We mostly are seen right away. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Sara Cheema!

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 wontreturn 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!!
