Getting Personal:
Dr. T. Cheema likes spending her down time watching movies and reading non-fiction books. She loves to travel and spend time with her kids outdoors. Something that most people do not know about her is that she loves the outdoors and hiking. She loves to take care of people so she would have chosen something along those lines if she had not been a doctor. According to Dr. Cheema she has always wanted to be a doctor since she was a little girl. She never even considered other options. Her favorite restaurant is Bonefish Grill. Her hidden talent is that she bakes very well and can cook multiple different cuisines. Her guilty pleasure is travelling to new places. She really enjoys meeting different people and getting to know them. She is athletic and loves to workout daily. Her dad inspired her to become a doctor. He always loved the profession and encouraged her brothers and her to pursue medicine. Dr. Cheema’s father always told her, “nothing will give you more pleasure and satisfaction than a patient coming back to you after you have cured him of illness, or helped him overcome pain and anguish, and he is grateful and thankful. But to top it all off, you actually get paid to do such noble job. What could be better than that?” This is what motivates her and gives her satisfaction every day as she sees patients. She knows she is in the right profession.
