Originally from Minnesota, Cheney moved to Houston after attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Upon arriving he worked as a clinical research coordinator at MD Anderson Cancer Center. During his time there he wanted to be more involved with patient care, so he decided to pursue a Master of Science in physician assistant practice degree at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in Chicago. During his clinical rotations he had a strong interest in dermatology and did a preceptorship with a dermatologist at the Great Lakes Naval Base. Cheney is a Diplomate Fellow of the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants and is a NCCPA nationally board-certified physician assistant. He has 13 years of experience treating patients of all ages in all aspects of medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. Houston has been Cheney’s home now for 18 years. He is excited to be seeing patients in our Sugarland office. When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 young children. In his spare time, he is an avid runner, traveler, amateur photographer and enjoys finding good places to eat.
