Dr Cheung is a superb physician. He is calm, very skillful, and an excellent communicator. He answers my questions frankly and lucidly, and is also a warm and sympathetic listener. His practice is also very efficient. I cant imagine a better doctor, and he has helped me and my family as we work to improve my heart's health.

Dr. Jim Cheung is the consummate professional. His diagnosis was dead on. His predictions of the outcome was dead on. His discussion of the risks, pros and cons was dead on. His staff is a pleasure to work with - no attitude, no nonsense, pure professional. And at my age, I've seen a few doctors. If his specialty is what is recommended to you, then the choice for me was clear.

I was referred to Dr Cheung by a cardiologist at Columbia-Presbyterian as one of the best for ablation procedures. Dr Cheung is very personable, takes the time to explain options, listens carefully and makes the patient and family feel very comfortable. 5-stars
