Ratings for Dr. Philippa J. Cheetham
Amazing Doctor! Smart, nice, and experienced. I went to her for a second opinion and she made me feel confident again . She educated me and walked me through treatment plans and a course of action to get better. Her staff was extremely helpful as well!
Dr. Cheetham is the absolute best! As a doctor, she exceeded every expectation. She completely made me feel like family and discussed every detail with me about my condition, which is hydronephrosis. Prior to her care I was experiencing chronic flank pain and developing urinary tract infections frequently. During my visit with her she made me feel comfortable and was very informative about what was happening and even drew me a labeled photograph. Doctor cheetham recommended I receive a stent to drain fluid from my left kidney, which I was pretty nervous about, however I trusted her and we went through with the procedure. Post operatively I didn’t experience any discomfort in fact I went on vacation and jet skied with that stent in! Thanks to doctor cheetham I am stent FREE and haven’t experienced pain or developed any infections!
Dec. 2017 I am a recently retired, exuberant 69-year-old Black man, of faith; diagnosed with both Prostate and Lung Cancer during this past summer. However, Dr Daniel X Shasha of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) referred me to Dr. Philippa Cheetham specifically because I was suffering from worsening urination urgency issues, during the past three years. I was resolved to contend with incontinence and wearing adult diapers. However, Dr. Cheetham provided treatment that has entirely eradicated the problem. I am confident that I no longer have to worry about locating places to urinate in my daily activities. WORDS FAIL TO ADEQUATELY EXPRESS MY JOY‼ She has also agreed to collaborate with my MSK team in treating my Cancer. Most doctors with whom I interact seem to have surrenders their joy and zeal for healing humanity; it seems, primarily because they have so much invested into being "a doctor". However Dr Cheetham has, the soul of a dedicated talented “Old School” country doctor, who joyfully and passionately tends to HER flock of patients; BUT she is also armed with modern contemporary technology, the latest knowledge and a network of talented and dedicated colleagues with whom she communicates. She met with me privately. I was pleased to discover that Dr Cheetham is open to integrating use of alternatives healing methods such as diet, herbs and exercises to strengthen the immune system. She advised me of my situation and consulted with my oncologist, Dr Shasha. She seems to believe strongly in her patients being active in self-healing and not being victims. Her capable diverse staff is extraordinarily caring, discreet, and friendly and works well, as a team. I felt as though all of them were devoted to me. They seemed personally invested in my well-being; they made me feel that I belonged to them. Dr, Cheetham, and her crew seem to be engaged in a labor of love in their endeavor to provide excellent service and care. They emanated trust and instill hope. I am fortunate to have found them.

After seeing several urologists that I wasn’t happy with, I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Cheetham. She is the only one that made me feel like she genuinely had my best interests at heart. She takes time to clearly explain things to me. She makes me feel confident that the decisions made are the right ones. But what’s most important to me - I trust her.
Dr. Cheetham is amazing! I have been a patient for 2 years and have consistently been impressed with her “across the board” expertise and knowledge in the Urology space. However, what often separates “good to great “DRs is their ability to make patients feel at ease. Dr Cheetham has this ability—breaking down complex concepts easily and with a sense of humor. I had a recent event and the first day back from the hospital I wanted Dr Cheetham’ opinion. With my wife joining the discussion she quickly became a fan and is all set to be a patient! Her staff is first rate and will try to accommodate in any way possible. I will continue to recommend Dr Cheetham without hesitation to family and friends.
I highly recommend Dr Cheetham! Her office squeezed me in for a last minute appointment when I mentioned i was in pain, even though she was booked until 2018. Dr Cheetham explained everything and also took the time to draw diagrams so I could have a better understanding of my situation. Dr Cheetham was very thorough, knowledgeable, and extremely professional during my exam, and she also maintained a humanistic warm and welcoming approach with a sharp sense of humor throughout my visit. Dr Cheetham runs a professional team that's well trained, knowledgable, and passionate. I would recommend this practice to all my friends and family!
