Dr. Cherney is an excellent, considerate, caring physician. I have rarely had the degree of personal concern from any physician as I have from Dr. Cherney.

I am continually grateful for his kindness and consideration and his excellent care. I feel privileged to be under his watchful care.

excelant experience
Patient | May 30, 2016

We assumed that they were checking both eyes on visits due to macular degeneration in left eye so as not to let right eye get as bad as left eye. But that was not the case. His right eye went from 20/20 to 20/50 in two 1/2 mths.
