Dr. Cheng is a wonderful doctor. He has a great bedside manner. He always adresses any questions or concerns and makes sure that I understand what he is trying to convey.

the wait time is very long, sometimes I have waited over 2 hours. I have never waited less than 1.25 hrs. I dread going to these appointments because he is so overbooked and my time is valuable too
Dec. 17, 2019
Dr Cheng is an extremely knowledgeable dr who always takes the time to answer my questions or concerns even doing research when I asked... I did have to wait over an hour for him I don't mind because of how sick his patients are and he gives us all what we need..he also shows he cares and greets me enthusiastically...

Everyone in the breast care center seems to go out of the way to be kind and helpful. Also give props to the staff at the onco lab. They stay so upbeat and calm, even though they are incredibly busy.

Dr is the best! he is caring and I am always confident that he has my best interest. The front desk, the nurse, lab, the person scheduling my follow-up appointment were kind and thoughtful. I'm always disappointed with staff in Green Bay at my GP's office because the staff at the Cancer Center has set the bar so high. I feel reassured every time I come for a follow-up appointment. I love Froedtert!!!

Excellent provider, but never on time. I think I waited an hour

Calm,easy manner with ability to explain what is occuring in my health situation, what labs and tests mean, what things i should watch, and what things are not a problem. Excellent doctor.
Aug. 27, 2019
I really like Dr. Cheng. He's compassionate and caring. He listens to my concerns and addresses them. He treats me with the utmost respect (unlike my first medical oncologist who treated me based totally on his knowledge versus how I was feeling).
Aug. 26, 2019

July 31, 2019
I am unable to access my records on line. I would like information by another media and am frustrated that I get no help nor do I get any messages on my computer.
July 30, 2019
since I sent all my medical records over before the appointment, didn't understand why I to fill out more of the same paperwork and then have the nurse verbally ask me the same questions from the sheet.
July 18, 2019
i am a young eoman with breast cancer. I am amazed by the coordination between Dr. Cheng's office and my other doctors, and the Day Hospital. Dr. Cheng and everyone in his office have given me extraordinary care. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
July 18, 2019
he is always respectful and patient. I am alive today because of him!!
July 8, 2019
dr ordered an ultrasound of chest wall. schudluler sent me to radiology when I was suppose to have it in the breast care center. this wasn't discovered until I sat in radiology for a half hour for nothing. so will have to make a trip back to fmlh on another day to have it done in the breast care center.
June 6, 2019
Very direct listen, explained "10".
May 23, 2019
Rush through my new treatment without throughly explaining my options. Where were the team of doctors helping with my care like they advertised on TV. I was really disappointed.
May 15, 2019
I have been Dr Cheng's patient for the past 9 years. He is thorough, professional and kind. He wants to know me as a whole person not a number. He will take as much time needed to answer questions and ask about my family.
May 14, 2019

Dr. Cheng exemplifies the mix of clinical expertise and compassion that all physicians should strive for. I feel so fortunate to have him for my doctor.
April 23, 2019
he was very attentive spoke very well in a language that I could understand as a lay person and not someone in the medical community she had a lot of information that he provided that gave me insight into things I had not previously thought about
April 22, 2019
Dr Cheng is a great physician and I would recommend him to anyone. The only problem I had at the office visit was I saw him 1hr and 35 min past my appt time.
April 21, 2019
Dr. Cheng and all of the women at the BCC are exceptional people. I am so blessed to have the quality of care they provide. Dr. Cheng is probably the most amazing, compassionate, caring person I've ever known.

April 11, 2019
Too much waiting, way past appt. time.
April 11, 2019
*Dr. Cheng knows what he's doing.
April 11, 2019
Dr. Cheng is an excellent oncologist. But he also is compassionate and listens to me. He never makes me feel rushed. Which is why I don't care if he is running late. That just tells me he is spending time with his patients as he should. Not only does he care about my physical well being but my mental well being. I would not go to anyone else for my cancer care. He is truly amazing. I hope those at MCW appreciate him.
April 10, 2019
Fellow working w/ Dr. Cheng was excellent, thorough. Dr. Cheng is always running behind but he's worth it.
April 4, 2019
It was really great seeing Dr. Chang and his staff. Feels awesome to be back at Froedtert.
April 3, 2019
Dr. Cheng does an excellent job with my care for the breast cancer. He is very knowledgeable and that is clearly his niche. he never asks me about my family or job etc. I am not sure he needs to though I think a visit with a physician is about overall well being and he doesn't ask questions to have an understanding of that.
March 28, 2019
*Dr. Cheng is wonderful as is all the staff.
March 27, 2019
Very satisified that I did not have a new breast cancer in my left breast, it was just tissue scaring from a previous lumpectomy done about 10 years ago.
March 21, 2019
Dr. Cheng and Maressa Sweeny are always wonderful.. the nursing staff is A+ also
March 19, 2019
Dr. Cheng ALWAYS listens to ALL my questions (even those of my husband), no matter how small and answers every one of them very thoughtfully. He gives me all the time I need during my appointment and never seems rushed which is very rare these days. Dr. Cheng totally ROCKS (as well as his staff) and I would recommend him to anyone that needs breast cancer care/treatment. Thank you, Dr. Cheng for your 5+ years of professionalism with me! I'll hug you every time I see you, I promise.
March 19, 2019
As my oncologist, he is personable and very clear in my treatment. I trust him with my health.
March 12, 2019

Dr. Cheng or his staff have spent enough time with me for the worst almost two years of my life. They work hard and are efficient and thorough without ever seeming cold, uncaring, or dismissive. I wish that all of my providers were like this. Serious question: do these people get enough vacation? Their jobs are very stressful.
Feb. 26, 2019
I waited nearly 1.5 hours to see Dr. Cheng which was extreme although I realize he is so busy and important. I only had 30 min., with him because I had my radiation appointment and didn't get enough time with him. although I called back with more questions and was able to talk to the nurse
Feb. 19, 2019
Dr. Cheng is excellent. I feel very lucky to have him as my Oncologist
Feb. 12, 2019
The wait times were long. I waited close to an hour for a blood draw and then to see the doctor.
Feb. 11, 2019
waiting times for both the lab and proveder were excessive.
Jan. 28, 2019
my doctor was very attentive to my particular situation
Jan. 27, 2019
I have lobular Breast Cancer. I get the same treatments and follow up scans as those patients with ductal breast cancer. I worry sometimes that at Froedtert, there is nobody who specializes in invasive lobular breast cancer. This is not a criticism of Dr. Cheng. He if a wonderful doctor. However, I wish there was someone associated with Froedtert Cancer center that specialized in Lobular Breast Cancer.
