Dr Cheng is probably one of the most genuine, knowledgeable, and caring doctors in this region. He "listens", and doesn't cut anyone short.. I have seen this first hand now for 17 years, and at 67 years old, I had several doctors prior. I live 40 miles away now, but would never switch to a closer dr to my residence. Well worth the drive to see him when needed.

Poor treatment, very rude person. Super bad staff.

I have been going to Dr. Cheng for about 10 years. Even though I have moved further away in those years, I come back to his location because he is excellent. His doctor-patient manner is the best I have experienced in all my life. He is personable, a GREAT listener, remembers our previous conversations and takes plenty of time to answer any questions. He makes one feel like they are being treated by a good friend. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. John Cheng has earned my and my wife's respect. He listens, he cares, he explaines his diagnosis and the treatments he perscribes. Dr. Cheng has really proven himself during our recent biking accident. He explained our injuies, the root-cause of all our pain, and then treated us accordingly. Dr. Cheng truly cares about his patients.
