Dr. Cheng is so caring and thorough. I trust him completely.
Dr. Cheng and his staff were very professional and caring. I had all of my questions answered and he even followed up with me personally the next day. I was very impressed with the attention I received and I am likely going to switch to Froedtert for my continued care.
The doctor and staff are always very helpful and thoughtful. They show a lot of concern for me and my health. They explained everything so well that I can understand what they wanted me to do. I really appreciate that about them.
Dr. Cheng is thorough and explains things well. He does that by first listening well to what my requests/questions/concerns might be. I was reminded again that he looks at the big picture of my health while at the same time identifying the little parts that might be a concern to me. As far as his bedside manner, very warm, friendly and you can tell he just cares about his patient. I am thankful to have experienced the past two years of working through my breast cancer with Dr. Cheng.
Dr Cheng and his team have all made me feel very comfortable and informed. Even when I am at my most anxious before an appointment, I leave the appointment feeling as though all of my questions have been answered and that they are being both honest and caring towards me.
