Patient Comments (1)
in Richmond, CA |
Office staff is rough around the edges and come off a bit rude and unprofessional in attires, speech and office is a mess but obviously works for them. They are efficient and loving get your needs addressed. Dr. Cheng does has a problem with being on time!!! Plan on waiting...sometimes an hour. The waiting room is HOT! dress lightly no matter how cold out. Dr. Cheng gets four stars because he changed my life after taking an ungodly amount of pills monthly for 10+ years & balanced everything out.
