This was follow up visit to get my results from my home sleep study. I thought I was going to get a prescription for a CPAP machine, instead I was told that I need to do anorher in house sleep study. I would think the results from the first study could be useful in writing a script for the machine. In my opinion, this is wasteful and unnecessary to do two separate tests. It was only after I complained and said I was not doing the other test that Dr. Cheema wrote the prescription for the CPAP. Lastely, Dr. Cheema did not fully explain my test results. He seemed distracted and in a rush to get to the next patient. I was told that they had a software crash that morning, & it put them back at least 35 minutes behind schedule. I understand computer gliches, but that is no excuse for rushed and incomplete office visit. I guess since he already knew he was sending me to another sleep study, he felt no need to be thorough until after the next test results.

He is my favorite. He saved my life when another dr thought my sleep problems were psychological. He also sent me to cardiology instead of just throwing BP meds at me. I adore this man, his bedside manner is top notch.
