It was a good experience overall. The office was not busy when I got there and they were able to get me in and out very fast. The doctor was friendly and thorough in her examination to diagnose me. I would recommend her for anyone looking for a General Practitioner

She couldn't help me with my meds, which I don't blame her for, but she knew before my appontment and even before my intake that she would not be able to prescribe these medications and still chose to see me. Nexttime be honest! Apparently they saw my request with my exact meds listed on Zocdoc and approved the appointment despite not being able to do it. I heard arguing behind me while I filled out the intake - the doctor would later admit to me this was her and her receptionist arguing because they had accepted the appointment despite not being able to do it. The doctor said her receptionist had attempted to call to cancel the appointment, and so the very first thing I heard from the doctor as she walks into the the exam room was a frustrated lecture on why 'you always have to pick up the phone when the clinic calls'. Seriously, she came in hot already about this. Lady - I get calls from random scam numbers all day, I am not picking up every new number that picks up. That isn't a reasonable expectation of a first-time patient who doesn't even know your phone number yet, and you certainly should not start an appointment angry at ME about that. It's your own broken system that failed you here, not me. The doctor kept explaining to me over and over that they have procedures, like I was an idiot. I happened to write something sassy on the intake about how much paperwork it was and also got lecture on that. Look, I understand there's a process, but 30 minutes of intake paperwork is TOO MUCH, especially when someone has already sent a lot of the basic info via Zocdoc. Stop making it our responsibility to rewrite this info because your forms are different from their forms. Has it ever occurred to you handwriting all that information for you is onerous on some folks? Not everyone has working hands. For some it is literally painful to write. That's why some folks love typing. Not everyone can handwrite all the time. They decided to do a blood draw, but the doctor didn't tell me, she just left the office saying they were going to see what they can do. When I poked my head out of the exam room, she told me she had decided to do a blood draw and so I had to wait while she sent the order into their internal system. The nurse practitioner who would do the draw was sitting right there looking at us, doing nothing. But they have a PROTOCOL so I had to wait until the doctor clicked the buttons for the blood draw, and she told me that would take a while. When I asked if I could get the blood draw done now so I could leave before 10am, the doctor once again lectured me about procedures. Was I impatient and more upset than I probably should've been? Yes, but this doctor kept lecturing me like I had done something wrong, when it was all on her and her staff for mismanaging their Zocdoc appointments. My only crime was setting an appointment via a Zocdoc, and then having the audacity of showing up. They were not ready for me and that isn't my fault. Lastly, I've been to a lot of doctor's offices and filled out every type of paperwork and been through LOTS of intakes, and I can confidently say that this doctor is not just simply following HIPAA mandates. No, this doctor's 'protocols' are aggressively above-and-beyond what is needed and what I have experienced at any other doctor's office, and hamper the doctor's ability to efficiently and effectively see patients.

This was my first appointment, and I could not have landed in a better place. The office is not convenient to my home, but totally worth the drive. Everyone is so friendly, kind, and patient. I fully trust that my health is in good hands with Dr. Cheekati.

It was a negative experience. The wait was long, the patient rooms were cluttered, you could hear what was going on in the patient room next door, people had left their urine cups on the counter because there was no littlehole in the wall to put them in. They didn’t even measure me but just asked me how tall I am.

Dr.Cheekati is very knowledgeable and asked me tons of questions about my medical history. It was nice for once to have a doctor spend the time and to carefully review your history to diagnose your current illness. In fact, I will return to have her be my new internist.
