Great doctor but be prepared to wait.

Dr. Cheson is one of the best oncologists in the area. He has a wonderful bedside manner and I trust him implicitly. The only downside is that because he has so many patients, you may have to wait an hour longer than intended; but if you want the best treatment then he's worth the wait.

He's the best

We drive over an hour to the Lombardi Cancer Center just to see Dr. Cheson. I wouldn't even consider seeing anyone else. He's a thoughtful and caring doctor who is the absolute best in his field. We don't mind if we have to wait - we know we're getting the best.
