Getting Personal:
Dr. Cheema likes to spend his down time with family, playing tennis, swimming, off road ATVing, and skeet shooting. He considers himself athletic and enjoys watching boxing and tennis. His favorite restaurant is Bone Fish Grill and Outback Steakhouse. His guilty pleasure is building model planes, helicopters, and tanks with his son. The career he would have chosen if he were not a doctor would have been an engineer, but he was inspired to become a doctor by his family members.
