If I could give Dr. Cheung 10 stars I would!! I was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor five years ago & upon doing my diligent homework by visiting multiple Dr.’s, I chose Dr. Cheung above all others not only because I researched his outstanding reputation and legacy as best surgeon with decades of experience behind him, but also because of his kind, understanding and caring demeanor. I later learned that he held the title as Chief Medical Officer and all the other Dr.s I had compared him to - had all been trained under him! So I knew then I found the best of the best! Not all these things I say because of a 1 time experience with Dr. Cheung, but because cancer revisited me, I was able to hold my head high knowing I knew would feel That same caring attention, quality time and warmth from both Dr. Cheung and his staff as we arranged yet another surgery together. What more can I say when my story ends with this special Dr. ...as saving my life!! Mrs. Azar

I'm in severe pain after double hernia surgery and Mr. Cheung gave me only enough pain medication for 4 days. I asked him for a refill and he said, I'm sorry but that's all I can do for you. He's treating me like I'm a drug addict in search of my next fix.
