While the personnel at this office was great, the unreasonably long wait time made it so I'd think twice about recommending the doctor to anyone else.
Patient | July 21, 2018

The only negative about this visit was the wait time!!
Patient | July 21, 2018

Being seen by Dr. Cherney is ALWAYS a good experience! He is very thorough and speaks to me on my level (medical professional), unlike many. I look forward to seeing him each visit. He is warm, personable and very interesting and interested. Most of all, he is VERY kind!

No problems at all.

This part of the survey seems a repeat of what I have already answered....I don't mind.....
Patient | June 26, 2018

Dr. Cherney is kind and attentive. He answered questions about concerns I had. He was well aware of my medical history.

Dr. Cherney is amazing. The best I've known. He has saved my eyesight.
Patient | June 21, 2018

Dr. Cherney has provided the best patient/doctor experience I have ever had. He listens and answers questions with understandable language for the layman. I have already recommended the Vanderbilt Eye Institute to others and have related my positive experience. This team has made a lasting impression on me and I have passed this on to others.

Partly bad since I had to have second surgery on left eye & it still isn't right.

I would most def. tell people to go see him.

Patient | August 31, 2017

Wonderful, kind, caring physician. Extremely intelligent. Professional. Cant say enough nice things about him. Has kept Mothers macular degeneration stable for about 15 to 20 years. She cant read but she can see a lot and I believe, as does the rest of our family, that his wonderful care has saved her vision this much.
Patient | August 28, 2017

Dr. Chemley is excellent. I am always at ease with him & really enjoy my time with him.
Patient | August 28, 2017

He is excellent teaching, physician, but a bit more focused on education to provider versus bedside manner, however, very knowledgeable.
Patient | August 7, 2017
