Dr. Cheng and his medical team Dr. Kim and their office staff are very professional and attentive to my care. They treated me immediately as a new patient with no wait time. They are respectful to answer any questions and have the highest regard towards pain management.

Dr Cheng and his office staff are very professional and caring. I highly recommend him. All of the Drs and Nurse practitioners seriously listen and hear you when you tell him your pain issues. They provide you with recommendations for therapy, exercise and medical procedures that help reduce the pain experienced. After a neck surgery I was still in great pain and truly do not know how I would have gotten through the last few years without his encouragement and sincere concern and empathy to help me see there is help. I can’t thank Dr Cheng and his staff enough for the help they have been providing to me.

Dr. Cheng is not only highly skilled, he is an all around nice person. He has performed two procedures on my lumbar spine. The front office staff is friendly and highly competent, which adds to the experience of visiting Dr. Cheng. I highly recommend this practice.

Dr. Chang is great, but his staff is fantastic. They are always smiling and go out of their way to make sure that all your needs are met. I leave Dr. Changs office is such a great mood because of the girls in the office and Dr. Chang.

I have been suffering from chronic back pain for 20 years. I have been to several pain specialists and Dr. Cheng is hands down the best! I have 2 small children and thanks to Dr. Cheng and his staff I am able to be more active with them with less pain. I highly recommend Dr. Cheng to anyone suffering from chronic pain who wants a doctor that is invested in helping you with your pain to have a better quality of life.

The office manager has absolutely no clue how to run an office, deal with insurance or even speak with clients. If you enjoy being yelled at or treated extremely poor, then this is the place for you!

The doctors here are fantastic. The huge problem is the office manager. She is ignorant. On top of that she is arrogant and incorrect. I've heard her being downright rude to clients. Worst customer service ever!!!!

Consider this a strong WARNING against this doctor for any poor, unsuspecting patient in pain. This doctor is the worst of the worst. Avoid this place like the Plague; not a human being!!! He doesn't care about you, period.
