Dr.Peng is truly the best physician that we have met for the past 15 years! I have two special needs children. The oldest one is 19 years old with severe autism, severe self injurious behaviors, and insomnia. We have been seeing Dr.Peng since 2015. My oldest son now has more than 2000 vocabularies, the self injurious behaviors has drastically reduced. Above all,he is not staying up all night anymore. ! Dr.Peng treated my sons as if they are her own children. She definitely cares addresses to

Liya in Irvine, CA – Jan 16, 2019
I highly recommend Dr Peng for complete and comprehensive neurology care. She has always been available, accommodating and willing to listen to what I say and seek out diagnoses that are confirmed with appropriate testing to support the diagnosis. She has always spent quality consultation time with us and truly listened to what we said and explained each step in my sons care fully and in an understandable way seeking a course of action we were able to implement. Highly recommend Dr Peng!

Carrie Fraijo in Laguna Niguel – Nov 15, 2018
Dr Pengs assistant has been rude from day 1 in the way she speaks to patients. We had a family emergency and before even asking for an explanation I was told we will be charged a 100 dollar no show fee. Meanwhile we are sitting in mission hospital while my daughter was supposed to be having her appointment time waiting to hear about the status of my father who was medi-vaced there in a coma in critical condition. When I told them what was going on and was willing to provide proof of the situati

Laguna niguel – Oct 30, 2018
Our experience with Dr. Peng was amazing, helpful, and comforting. After our child was mis-diagnosed by another doctor (with HFA), we sought a second opinion with Dr. Peng. She took the time to not only talk with us parents, but to actually try to communicate with our child. The experience with Dr. Peng was reassuring and our child actually likes talking with her. I highly encourage you to meet with Dr.Peng should you have a need to do so.

Dr. Peng is truly a phenomenal, highly experienced professional. Her diagnosis of my daughter's symptoms was astounding and I'm only sorry we didn't see her sooner. She is personable, friendly and makes your child at ease. Have seen other specialists and she is definitely the best.
