Dr Cheng is a excellent doctor! I was referred to him by my primary doctor for fatty liver disease. I went to him full of fear, uncertainty(thanks google) and with a ton of questions. He was so patient and answered every single question that I had and spent over an hour with me. I left his office feeling reassured and determined to do all the things he suggested(lose weight, cut sugars/carbs and exercise). We came up with a plan of action and I'm ready to tackle it. I'd suggest him to everyone!

I have been a patient of Dr. Cheng for over three years now. i was immediately put at ease with his calm demeanor & was impressed with how he answered all my questions in a very understanding way. Without his thoroughness & expertise I would probably not still be alive, as I am a three plus years survivor of colon cancer. I continue to have all my frequent colonoscopies done by Dr. Cheng because I know that I am receiving excellent care. I refer friends & family to Dr. Cheng.
