Patient Comments (1)

I've had skin issues ever since I was a child, so I've been to many dermatologists in my life. Dr. Cheung is by far the best, just in terms of knowledge, clinical judgment, bedside manner, and skill. His office staff is also very helpful and accommodating. Could not recommend enough!
