    in Sandy, UT |
    I had a great experience working with Dr. Cheng & his staff! I have a herniated disc in my back. He shared the MRI with me and walked through all the options for treatment. He ensured I understood all the options and treated me with great respect and concern for my situation. He helped me manage pain with over the counter medications and block shots and connected me with a great physical therapist. With his guidance and oversight I am no longer in pain & very active despite the herniation!

    Dr. Cheng is caring and kind. He listens to his patients and asks that they make decisions about their care with him. He injected my neck to treat a herniated disk. I am five weeks out from the injection and I am symptom free. I feel fortunate to have found him.
