excellent doctor! would love to see her again in the future- she was great with my 9 year old who is hesitant to go to the doctor
We had an appt at 4pm and didn't have our name called until 4:45pm. it's really difficult to keep a toddler waiting that long.
very nice, made my 5 year daughter feel comfortable. helpful with giving us kindergarten paper work
Dr C is great!! We know we are in hands we can trust with her.
our apt was at 4:15 on 12/23/19 and we didnt get seen till I think around 5:30. that is a very long time to have to wait with a 6 month old and a 4 year old brother. she was very responsive when she got in there but that wait time was ridiculous. if she cant handle the amount of PT's she sees maybe cut her back on PT's
I'm continually impressed with the care Dr. Chesek has provided for us. She always hears my concerns and is quick to validate the decisions we're making for our child's care. I'm so glad we can continue to see Dr. Chesek for our check ups and I love how quick the nurses line is to answer our questions.
We always get great care from Dr. Chesek. My concerns are her concerns and she gets excited over his progress.
she's the best doctor we have ever seen. we are so thankful she sees our daughter.
The doctors and staff that I have interacted with when I bring my child in have been fantastic. I'm happy that my coworkers recommended this practice.
Dr. Chesek is such a great Doctor. She is always so kind and puts my kids at ease.
This provider always does a great job - thorough and caring!
We love Dr. Chesek! She is wonderful
Dr. Chesek was wonderful with my daughter, handling the topics of her period and weight gain with sensitivity and tact. I appreciated her encouragement to me as a mother as well.
Dr Chesek is awesome! our favorite doc at CCP!
Children feel extremely comfortable and open with our doctor. She is helpful, relatable, thorough and has a great sense of humor.
Dr Chesek is amazing. We love how knowledgeable and caring she is. We look forward to seeing her and our child being in the best hands possible.
I am always vey pleased with all he providers within this practice.
This was the first time that both girls saw Dr. Chesek. I cannot say enough good things about her. I absolutely loved her. She was amazing with the girls. She took the time to talk to them and made my oldest feel so proud about being a big sister. She could relate with the age gap and was so sweet. She addressed all our concerns, came up with a plan, and really took the time with us. I would love to to see her more often. She made us all feel so comfortable.
my main problem with this appointment was that doctor chesek was not informed that we were there for a medical concern. She came in ready to perform a routine check-up, but when I called, I made an appointment for my child who has been vomiting randomly in the mornings with no other symptoms. This miscommunication between the office and the provider is unacceptable. Because of it, the doctor was not prepared to talk to us and really listen to my concerns. Her previous medical records were not yet accessible at the visit, and I do understand that having these is necessary to help the doctor make a good preliminary diagnosis, but she didn't really take the time to listen to what I had to say about my daughter's medical history and passed off her condition as reflux right away. I just wish that this appointment had gone more smoothly from the beginning and that the doctor had been informed of our real reason of seeking medical advice so that she could have spent more time listening to what I had to say about my daughter's medical history. I really hope that this does not happen again.
We like Dr. Chesek, but we did not like having to wait an hour to see her.
This is the third time I've been to this office. Everyone has been courteous however time management seems to be very poor at this office.
She was great... very helpful, answered our questions, and made us feel comfortable!
We love Dr. Chesek!!!! She's the best!
She was amazing. Made my child very comfortable and was very knowledgeable. We had a great experience with her.
We arrived for 5:30 appointment at 5:15. We waited in waiting room until around 6:00. then we saw doctor around 6:30
i felt she was in a rush this time. She didn't spend a lot of time with us. She also didn't even address 2 key issues in regard to my son (I didn't have any questions about it but it would have been nice if she acknowledged them)
very respectful staff, very good with children and doctors talk on your level so they make sure you are very clear about everything.
Dr. Loraine actually acknowledged my concerns for my son on my first visit unlike my previous health care provider of two years which did not listen to any of my concerns.
Everything was good - just didn't like having to wait 30 minutes past appointment time
she is an unbelievable caring doctor. we look forward to seeing her each time
Dr. Chesek is always so kind during our visits. She will be the Dr. I will always try to schedule my kids appointments with.
doctor and staff were great but wait time was 45 mi utes from scheduled time
I am always please with the doctors at the office.
We love Dr. Chesick! She's very knowledgeable and down to Earth. She's practical and has logical answers for our questions. She always puts our minds at ease and is thoughtful and caring. We love her!
We didn't see the doctor until almost 45 mins past our appointment time.
Dr. Cheswick was great. I really appreciated her knowledge and time.
My son made a point to tell me after the visit that he really liked the MD.
Wonderful and thorough. We see her for all of our regular appointments and have great confidence in her expertise.
always a good experience
PA was great.
waited over 30 min after scheduled appointment time to see Dr
Excellent appointment with the doctor!
did not review any medications or give script for inhalers. states was in the waiting roomat least 45 minutes for a 5 minute visit-
Dr. Chesek is always both friendly and professional.
She was very patient and answered the many questions that I had. She was also very nice and made my daughter feel comfortable.
We love Dr. C!!
everything was great! she made my children feel comfortable.
great hands on with our daughter
We really enjoyed our visit!!
I had several different questions including about a referral for a consult, she provided information for all of them.
I thought this particular doctor was very nice as she went through the whole list if my daughter's questions.
Dr Chesek listened to all my concerns and was very open and helpful
Dr. Chesek is such a wonderful pediatrician. You can tell she cares about each of her patients. She talks with each parent and shows true compassion for the children.
doctor was great. we waited over an hour for walk in care. that was tough with a toddler with us
