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!
