Dr. Cheng is the most compassionate, kind, caring doctor I've ever had. he's a genius and my hero. I had heard amazing things about him. They're all true. He never rushes patients and it's obvious how deeply he cares about all of his patients. He saved my life. Dr. Cheng never gives up. He's an incredible human being. We are lucky to have him at Froedtert.

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

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!!!
