Highly Recommend
So glad I consulted Dr. Cheung. He listened, recognized my concerns, pinpointed the issue, based on my medical and family history, and came up with a solution that, at least for now, will not require the medication I sought to avoid. He is outstanding. Easy to talk to, too. Highly recommend.

Commitment To Excellence
I have been a patient of Dr Cheung's since my Tachycardia surgery in 2019. He is an Outstanding Cardiologist - he carefully listens to a patient's issues, makes the patient feel relaxed and comfortable in discussions, and the office staff and nurses are caring, courteous, and very personal. Thankfully through his medical knowledge he helped me correct the issue requiring surgery and now has made my cardio health excellent.

Very cordial; gave lengthy but very understandable explanations and checked that I was understanding. He seemed very knowledgable and his experience was evident. Was very unhurried and gave me his full attention. I will return.

An extremely caring professional
I was scheduled for a follow-up visit with DR Cheung and at the same time there were concerns that I had that I wanted his opinion on for further treatment. My local cardiologist also had something he wanted to discuss with Dr Cheung when I saw his for his followup as well. I was amazed and impressed that as busy as he is and as packed as his schedule is he called my cardiologist back within hours. They discussed different ideas. Dr Cheung is this amazing blend of confidence and humility. He made suggestions and then suggested that I touch base my local cardiologist and not just change the dosage of a med with his concurrence as well. He too has a good feeling of his interactions with Dr Cheung and he concurred with Dr Cheung's suggestion. I truly could not ask for better treatment. I consider him " the best of the best" in his specialty. In the treatment room, they have considered every detail for patient comfort.

Superb Physician.
Wonderful. Previous doctor in the West had advised I must just live with my condition. Dr. Cheung investigated, recommended two potential solutions, both of which we will explore. He is giving me a chance to resume my previous quality of life.
