Dr. Cheung performed surgery on me at Baylor in 2015, and altho' the surgery was difficult to recouperate from, Dr. Cheung was most excellent as to the healing of my condition. I would readily recommend Dr. Cheung to anyone and that they put themselves into his capable hands with confidence.

Dr. Cheung removed a schwannoma from my back. He took the time to explain everything to me in our consultations and came by to check on me after surgery daily. I could tell he was confident in his abilities and that was reassuring to me.
