I would not recommend this Dr to anyone. The reason scheduling appointments is easy is because he is terrible and no one wants to see him. He talks over you, doesn't listen to your questions and prescribes oral antibiotics for everything. Sure, if you just want antibiotics and want to be talked over-please sign up for Dr Cheung.
