What People Say About Dr. Edson Cheung, MD

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.
