“From the moment I walked into the office I was treated with respect and attention by each support staff person I met. Dr. Cheney listened carefully and responded with care and concern.

“Although it took time to get an appointment with Dr. Cheney for my 16-year-old daughter, it was so worth the wait. Dr. Cheney explained daughter she had DDD in her back and sent her to work with a PT professional. He was compassionate to a teenage girls frustration dealing with back pain for over a year. Thanks to Dr. Cheney my daughter worked hard building core and muscle in her legs and arms and is currently back in the All-Star Cheer Gym doing what she loves.”

“Dr. Cheney is very professional and has helped me enormously. My first experience with Dr Cheney was for back surgery, the result of which was a vast improvement in quality of life. My second experience related to excrutiaing sciatica for which he prescribed physical therapy and an antiinflamitory medication. My recent visit related to significant neck pain. Again, physical therapy and exercises. I believe that he looks to surgery as a last resort. I trust his judgement completely and waiting a few months for an appointment is a small price to pay for confidence in a physician”
