I don't ever ask for many shares on things but this happens to be one of the things that riles me up. Earlier this year my wife slipped and injured her knee and went to Orthopedic Associates of West Fl. They stated to her that the price of the brace through our insurance would be $96 dollars. They then sent a bill to us for $496. Never telling her the price could be that high. Also the same brace is available online for less than $200. The billing person Peter is rude. The office manager

Dr. Cheong saw me at my urgent request related to pain I was having in my right shoulder and radiating through my lungs. I've been desperate to find a scientific reason for this pain & many symptoms I've had for several years. Chronic and debilitating fatigue, pain, shortness of breath, tingling on the top of my head. etc. Dr. Cheong mentioned that his sister was a psychiatrist. Cheong's xrays revealed spirochetes in my lungs . He ignored this. I have lyme disease. He took the money and he ran.

First and foremost the surgery was a success, after a life time of hip pain after the surgery and recovery I have zero pain from the hip. As for Dr. Cheong, his explanation and treatment through out the process has been nothing but excellent. If you are considering any type of orthopedic surgery Dr. Cheong would be my first and only choice.

Dr. Cheong helped me when I thought there was no hope. He is very caring and considerate. He did an excellent job with my knee replacement, even after a second replacement was necessary due to a faulty prosthetic.

The most compassionate and sincere doctor I've had the pleasure of being on my side. I couldn't imagine being in the care of anybody besides him, as he was absolutely magnificent in both explaining to me the diagnosis in a manner which I could understand but also being absolutely charismatic and understanding.

Being referred to Dr. Cheong was a blessing. I first met him last fall with a worn-out hip that had been replaced over fifteen years ago. I limped into his office with leg length discrepancy (one leg was longer than the other), had a completely worn out hip, and was in incessant pain. My previous hip revision surgery had not gone as well as my original two hip replacements and thus, I was petrified. He immediately put me at ease. His vast knowledge, gentle bedside manner, and an uncanny ability

I first met Dr. Cheong February 25 2016. Dr. Cheong diagnosed a Tibial Fracture. No frills or unnecessary xray . I feel he treated me with knowledge and skill. Remarkable is the best way to disscribe this wonderful human being! Thank you for this opportunity to express my gratitude.

He is very caring and listens to you. Best Ortho I have ever met and used for my knee surgery.
