This visit was the first time we met Dr, Chesek. She was very nice and friendly. She was thorough and answered and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. i would recommend her to others for sure.
IT was a very good experience. I was very happy.
She was very nice and funny
i love Dr. Chesak! My only comment is that she does talk very fast and doesn't ask if I have any questions. If I do have questions or concerns, I have to try to get them in before she's done and leaves the room
Fantastic provider. Highly recommend.
Dr. Chesek was amazing with my daughter. My child is 2years old and usually cries for strangers, especially doctors. She was so nice and caring that my daughter let her put fluoride on her teeth and did not cry for her shot, because of how comfortable she felt during her visit. Great Doctor with a true caring heart. Thank you
very kind. very prompt nice staff
The wait time was excessive for the doctor to come into the room and the time for the nurse to come in with injections after the doctor left the room was very long and caused more anxiety for my child since the doctor already had told her that she was getting shots.
I WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK TO DR. CHESEK. SHE WAS VERY GOOD
We really enjoy out visit with this doctor. Very kind, fun, and attentive with the children.
the doctor spent a few minutes talking personally to my 14 year old after hearing that he was interested in attending an Ivy League school after graduation. I felt that communication was special and peaked our sons interest further!
love this doctor! she is smart, relatable and relevant
Dr.CHESEK was wonderful. Very respectful to my son and I. Spoke to my son not ignore and just talk to me. Big bonus in my book. She listened to my sons concerns and mine as well. We also asked about my son switching his care of managing his ADHD medication and therapy to the office!!!
Just the really long wait
The Dr. and staff were very personable and interacted very well with my teenaged daughters. It was a very positive visit. We didn't have any issues or problems, just a regular check-up, and everything went very smoothly. I am very happy with this practice.
I have seen many doctors in this practice. The doctor we saw for this latest appointment would not listen to me at all after I said she could not give my child a bunch of shots at one time. I tried to discuss some concerns with her and she brushed me off and would not listen to me.
Wait time was a bit long for a scheduled physical
She was very disrespectful and did not ask me any questions about my health or medical history. She was dismissive and not at all helpful.
excellent provider! I was happy we had the opportunity to meet her. very fine rapport established with my son.
listened well and cared about my issues
A very good experience. I love his doctor. I feel comfortable calling and going by what they say rather than what others say.
Loved her. She was very nice and really did pay attention and tried to find out what was going on with my son.
Dr. Chesick was extremely knowledgeable and patient with my child during his new born visit. She took the time to answer questions I had for his care, a quicj question i had pertaining to my older child,and also questions I had about insurance for my children. She was non judgemental and very kind to this mother of 4. I would reccomend her expertise to any parents.
This was the first time my daughter and I had an appointment with Dr. Chesek. I must say that she was absolutely WONDERFUL! She was so patient with my child (who is often very shy), took her time examining her (i.e. it didn't feel "rushed" in any way), and was genuinely kind and caring. When I had called to schedule my daughter's two-year wellness visit, I had requested a doctor that would be skilled at handling a shy toddler. This doctor went above and beyond my expectations. I could not have been more pleased with her demeanor and handling of my child. I did in fact, inform several mothers I know of the incredible care my daughter received from this provider. I will be hoping she will be able to see my child in any upcoming, future appointments.
First time ever being to this doctors with my 5 1/2 month daughter. Really friendly and polite staff, would definitely recommend them to family and friends.
Lorraine Chesek is absolutely one of my favorite providers both at this practice and in general. She is so good with my child and is just an overall delight to interact with.
Love this practice. I went to it when Doctor Thiers was the primary and owner. Then Dr. Diamond. Wouldn't change a thing
A very nice experience. My Daughter felt very comfortable and received her flu mist without any hesitation due to the experience being very relaxed. Thank You
we never saw Dr Lorraine Chesick before, but we absolutely LOVED her. she tuned in to each child, adapted to how to speak to each one, and the kids thought she was amazing. I am so happy that we met with her today!
Dr Chesak is great
This was the first time we had this provider and i liked her better than any other woman my daughter has seen since she wanted a woman doctor.
I recommend this practice to everyone I meet!! This was the first visit we had with Dr Chesak and just absolutely adored her!! Not only was she an absolute pro and incredible Dr but she has a gift for kids!! Not only did she win the love of my 10yr old daughter but also my 15yr old son!! And that is no easy task!! She took so much time with each of my kids, one on one nonetheless and was so laid back and easygoing!! Very impressed and not only will we see her again but I will recommend her to everyone!!
