Everyone was helpful and polite my only problem is the wait time. If I schedule something for a certain time it would be nice to be seen within that time range. Other than that the visit was great.

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!
