Ratings for Dr. Philippa J. Cheetham
After going to an urgent care facility and finding out that I may have kidney stones I was told to get a CAT scan. They never mentioned that I needed to see a urologist first. After getting that information the staff at the urgent care found me Dr Cheetham who would squeeze me for an appointment the same day. Unfortunately the urgent care staff didn't listen to Dr Cheetham's staff who wanted me to go the Kew Gardens office they sent me to her Long Island office. Long story short they were not there the urgent care staff failed to mention they screwed up. I went home to figure out my next move. Before getting home I received a call from Dr Cheetham's office explaining what happend and if I could still make it in that night. So I went to the Queens office where I live and was seen right away by Dr Cheetham. She explained everything about kidney stones and what the next steps were going to be. She set me up to get a CAT scan the next morning and gave me a prescription as well. Also all of this was done after hours, her and her staff stayed an hour later to help me which I greatly appreciated. There are not enough words to describe how great and awesome Dr Cheetham and her staff are. The doctor relayed the results of the scan to me very quickly and informed me what steps to take next. I highly recommend Dr Cheetham and her awesome staff they are very accommodating, helpful and friendly.
When I first started looking for a doctor for prostate issues I was really hesitant about picking any doctor. I searched the web and I found Doctor Philippa Cheetham . After I read about her I sent her an email to ask some questions about my concerns. I figured I would hear from her in a few days. However, she called me personally the next day. I live in Houston Texas and really needed to know if she was as good as people said she was. It didn't take long and I booked a flight to New York to see her and she even helped set me up with other services I needed on short notice like Xrays . She is a great doctor and I am glad I found her. I would highly suggest if you need a Urologist to see Dr. Phillipa J .Cheetham. If you were to put all the top Urologists in the country in one big conference room Dr. Phillipa J .Cheetham would be at the head of the class...She is that GOOD! Also, I had not seen or spoken to DR. Cheetham in almost a year and I have another story... I was out playing golf on Friday afternoon March 18 2016 and when I went to the restroom after the round I thought I saw blood and I got really nervous. Imagine its 5pm and you think you may need to go to the ER. I a text message to Dr Cheetham personal cell number as I thought to myself "Who is one person that you know that my answer you at this time of day.. 5pm?" One minute later she answered me back! I didn't not go to the ER that day. She really is AWESOME! Rudy Castillo Houston Texas
Dr. Philippa Cheetham is excellent. I was an anxious mess before seeing her about 2 weeks ago. She listened to my explanation of my painful symptoms and performed a physical exam on me very quickly and efficiently. She was able to explain to me in great detail what the issue had been and how to treat this. Dr. Cheetham was extremely re-assuring and impressively knowledgable. Not only is she very professional and kind, she also has a great personality and I honestly have never had such a positive experience at any medical appointment before. She really knows how to make a patient feel completely comfortable while gladly explaining the full details of the condition she recognizes. She speaks to you one on one and educates you very patiently, unlike some physicians who may be condescending or negligent in their communication. She completely placed me at ease and as of now my symptoms have greatly diminished. I have a follow up appointment with her in another 2 weeks, and I would recommend to anyone! Thanks again Dr. Cheetham! - Alain

All you have to do is a search for Dr. Philippa Cheetham and you will find out why she is one of the best. She found that I have early Prostate Cancer. It's not something that comes up and slaps you in the face to let you know you have it. She had the test done little by little. She kept me informed of everything she was doing. I felt VERY COMFORTABLE with her. Looking forward to our next visit. A+++++++++++++++ Johnny O'Keefe My up-date 09/01/2015. I decided to have the Cyber Knife treatment. The Insurance Company denied it 3 times, twice on appeal. Now it’s June and I already wasted 6 months. I have been reading the good book for the last 6 month and was looking for the right answer. I made another appointment with Dr. Cheetham. Dr. Cheetham told me about the seed implant treatment. But she said I would have to travel to Manhattan from Suffolk Long Island to have it done. She knew I didn’t like to travel to far, but when she told me where Dr. Shasha was located at Mount Sinai Beth Israel on 14th st. I knew my Prayers were answered. I decided to go with the Seed Implant. Done July 28 2015 Follow up Aug 11 with Dr Cheetham Follow up with Dr. Shasha Aug 25 all is well. Thank You Dr. Cheetham and Dr. Shasha for all the care. Couldn’t ask for anything better. BTW The Treatment took less then ½ Hour. I then walked from 22nd st and second ave to 14th st Union Square for a Cat Scan. The next day I E-Mailed Dr. Cheetham and Dr. Shasha that all was well and Dr. Shasha said he had more good news. The Cat Scan came back very good. I’m just waiting now for a few more months to see now the PSA test will come out. Johnny O
I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Cheetham to get medical advice and treatment for a condition. I procrastinated for a very long time as I knew it would be uncomfortable for me. A fear of the unknown (what exams or procedures it would entail) loomed and contributed to my discomfort with seeing a urologist. Being male, my preference was to be seen by a female doctor. I set out to find a doctor with high credentials and decided on Dr. Cheetham after research and seeing many reviews. She ranked among the best doctors and surgeons, male or female. When I sat down with Dr. Cheetham, she was warm friendly and professional. After I provided a brief explanation of my problem, Dr. Cheetham gave me a very thorough explanation of my ailment, the causes, the treatments and what her plan of attack would be. Naturally, the next step involved blood work and a multi-pronged exam (hint: that is a pun). Recognizing my discomfort with all of this, Dr. Cheetham used her very witty humor to disarm and distract me. The process was over before I knew what happened. In summary, Dr. Cheetham is very knowledgeable, skilled and has a great bedside manner. She takes the time to answer all of your questions. I never felt rushed or like I was taking part in "assembly-line" treatment. Lastly, her sense of humor serves to put you at ease.
If you want the best doctor look no further. Dr. Cheetham is a wonderful doctor that I highly recommend. Here is my email that I wrote to Dr. Cheetham today, August 1, 2015. Dear Dr. Cheetham, since I started taking the prescribed antibiotic this past Wednesday, I am happy to report that as of yesterday, July 31, 2015, I am feeling about 80% better. I just cannot thank you enough. I never expected that when I wrote my email asking for your help this past Tuesday that you would respond in less than five minutes. Not only did you say you can help you made sure I had an appointment with you for the following day. I just want you to know how greatful I am to you. I was frustrated by this on going problem and some how I was lucky enough to find you. I had seen many doctors over the past several years and they were not able to help me. For the first time, thanks to you, I left your office with a clear understanding as to what was causing my problem. You made me feel very comfortable, you explained everything in great detail and most of all you put together a treatment plan with the care and concern as though I was part of your family. You are a wonderful doctor and most of all a wonderful person that truly cares about others and you seem to love what you do. My sincere thanks to you. You are Incredible. Best Regards. Bill
Dr. Cheetham is an extremely caring physician who is, unusually generous with her time. In addition, she is very knowledgeable, not only about the traditional methods of treating prostate cancer, but also about more natural, less invasive alternatives. During my first visit, she presented and explained a treasure chest of good suggestions and options. In addition, she is so well-connected to other specialists in the New York area, and so ready to consult with, and refer to those related specialists, that seeing Dr. Cheetham was like seeing an entire team of doctors! But what I appreciated the most about Dr. Cheetham was her willingness to listen to, and respect my own ideas, and preferences. I have seen over a dozen first-class New York City doctors in the past few years for their opinions about my prostate cancer. For the reasons noted above, Dr.Cheetham stands out as the very best of the best!
