Dr Cheema is very good professional and very personal and made me feel very comfortable he always does. every doctor I've seen at Baylor Scott & White has been the same. I feel like everyone there cares even the staff the nurses the people who make appointment. It seems like a very happy work environment which you do not see too much in these days. No one seemed stressed are miserable they all seem happy to work there. I would highly recommend this doctor office in hospital to anyone.

Because I was ill with a cold/low grade fever, the wait time of 40 minutes past my appt. time seemed forever. My long awaited appointment was for the results of sleep test, but Dr. Cheema did ask about my upper respiratory issue and advised accordingly. The low score on the phone experience was recent past, NOT this staff, but general line. Hold times are lengthy and frustrating. Could you institute a "call back" protocol, perhaps?

I've never conferred with a sleep doctor, so I have little to compare it to, but as a lung doctor, he also reviewed care from other doctors and made a few suggestions. I felt like he was concerned about me as a person and not just another name on the schedule.
