Dr. Cheung is excellent! I can't recommend him highly enough to anyone with a cardiovascular problem in need of a first-rate Cardiac Electrophysiologist. He is extremely knowledgable, professional, and confident and addressed my every concern before I underwent the ablation procedure to fix my atrial fibrillation problem. Thanks to Dr. Cheung, I am back to living my pre-A-Fib life without the need for medications. Thank you, Dr. Cheung!

Dr. Cheung is by far one of the best doctors I have ever worked with. When he explained my medical condition, he was articulate and had a calm friendly demeaner. Dr. Cheung and his associates took time to explain the ablation procedure and answer every single question I had both prior and at the time of the procedure. All answers were explained in a non-condescending precise way and broken down, so I understood all medical terms. I never felt so trusting/calm before a procedure of this magnitude, and I credit that to Dr. Cheung and his staff’s bedside manner. As for the procedure itself – it was successful, and I have no arrhythmias 4 months out. For some context, I had 27 runs of SVT/A Fibs in a 24 hour period recorded on my Holter monitor. My recovery was very quick with very few side effects. I was released the same day and was back to 100% 2 weeks post procedure!

I highly recommend Dr Cheung for his outstanding work at Weill Cornell Cardiology. He is a caring, thoughtful, and excellent listener to his patients. I needed to have a Tachycardia Ablation performed and he was recommended as being "ONE OF THE BEST". Enough Said - I THANK HIM for helping me to have a healthier life again.
