Bethesda, MD |
I have never seen Dr. Cheng. I went there to see Dr. Sienko, OD. The doctor is fine but the office management is awful. The computer database never had the right contact phone numbers. The receptionist was just blindly making phone calls and leaving voicemails when doctor is not available, totally ignoring that the voicemail greeting has a different name and even gender from the patient. When being asked why this happened, the receptionist was more impatient than being sorry, not to mention m

Did so-called "extra diagnostics" without informing that was extra, during a routine annual eye check. We received surprising bill. Called and got unhelpful, conflicting, and rude response. Our feeling was that the doctor office was trying to get more money out of our visit. The doctor did not show up with professional appearance, e.g., not wearing doctor attire. Diagnostics did not feel serious and trustworthy.

I have been a patient of Dr. Cheng's for 20 years. Through the years, I have referred at least a half of a dozen friends/family, and each and every one of them are still patients of hers as well. There is no one better in the Capital District area.

Dr Cheng is clear and careful at answering questions about specific treatments and spends as much time as is necessary with each patient.
