I have been a patient of Dr. Zheng for around three years and I am a very satisfied patient. From the first time I met him, he and his office staff were very professional, compassionate and respectful of me as a person and a patient. He is such a positive person and he really wants the best for his patients and offers various kinds of treatments. Unlike most doctors who only judge you or your situation, Dr. Zheng and his staff really took the time to thoroughly understand me as a patient and

I have been a patient of Dr. Zheng for over 7 years. I receive several injections for back pain 1 to 2 times per year. He is very compassionate. The accuracy and outcome of the injections in my back are great. I would recommend him to anyone with severe back pain.

What pain management Dr after seeing a patient 2 weeks prior and after multiple calls from the patient and the patients pharmacy to his office still does not follow up. And send the pain med prescription into the pharmacy then leaves for an out of state conference !! So now his PAIN MANAGEMENT patient is left without pain medication for 2 weeks !! One of my other doctors had to send the prescription in for me!! I certainly will NOT be recommending this Dr to anyone !!

Dr. Pici at Lawrence Hospital referred me to Dr. Zheng. I had PT which made me feel worse. After seeing Dr. Zheng just a few times, I felt considerably better. He is kind, compassionate , and reminds me sometimes of an old fashioned country Doctor He tries different procedures to make you feel more comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone in dire pain with their back, and any other part of the body for that matter.

I first visited Dr. Zheng in Poughkeepsie, NY, for severe pain in lower back and my left knee, due to an injury. After my second visit, I felt immediate relief in my knee after receiving an injection. Several days later Dr. Zheng was able to relieve the pain in my lower back as well. I found Dr. Zheng to be very pleasant, easy to talk to and most important, he took the time to listen. He explains the why's as well as the why not's and does not rush my visits. He takes his time and gets to the ro

Dr. Zheng has really helped me manage my neck pain. I find him to be caring, considerate, and very knowledgeable in his field. He also has a great sense of humor which I find helps put his patients at ease. His staff is also very helpful and caring especially Margarita. She really knows her business and has a great way with the patients that she deals with. She's a very caring person.

Dr. Zheng is one of the best pain management doctor's around , he take's the time to help me understand what type of treatment is best to meet my needs. To be able to trust another doctor the way I've been able to trust him says a lot because I don't trust many doctor's if any! I can say this if your looking for a doctor that will hand out pain meds. for no other reason then feeling the need to be on them then he's not the doctor for you . He works to overcome the pain not add to it.

I would definitely recommend Dr.Zheng for several reasons: His patience and kindness, his knowledge about his craft, time spent with his patients. Dr. Zheng is always trying to improve treatments thru cutting edge medical studies. We are currently trying to heal severe knee pain thru stem cell treatments, wish me luck !!!

Dr Zheng gave me more help in one visit than my orthopedic doctor had given me in 3. He was able to easily tell what my issue was with my back and give me a step by step treatment plan to relieve my severe back pain. Finally some answers and relief! Thank you!!

Same experience as the review from March 11th - Dr Zheng is a nice doctor and seems to know his stuff, but he hasn't got a competent support staff which leaves you endlessly calling,leaving messages and no callback.

The worst . He is a nice man in person . That is it. His office has lots of staff changes all the time. No one picks up the phone . Dr ZHENG has no call service during business hours let alone after. If you are a patient and he does any procedure on you . He does not take any calls and never returns a call ever . He instructs his office to lie to you . He did a semi perm block on me. The first time the probe failed I had to wait to be rescheduled.
