Impressed with Dr. Cheng. He knew all my heart history. I asked five questions which he encouraged and answered! He approved a Loop Recorder and referred a consult for the Watchman! I was very happy about that! He stressed that I contact him for any further questions! He was very professional and personable. I feel he is an asset to Legacy Health and glad he will be my EP Doctor!

Love the doctor, but the system takes too long. I have sent the office my complaints and they are putting me on a wait list so I hopefully can work, clean (the house and yard), drive, and exercise again.

It was the follow up meeting after an ablation. All seem to go well but I did have to wait a half hour.

Dr. Cheng is an exceptional provider. He has always been completely present during every visit, making sure I understand everything he says. Most docs pepper in medical terminology as if it's common language (to them I'm sure it is), but Dr. Cheng always explains any "doc-talk" he uses. It makes me feel like he genuinely sees me and knows that my understanding is critical to my healing.

Dr. Edward Cheng instills confidence in his patients through his professional and personable interactions. I feel fortunate to have him as a cardiologist that I can turn to for informed and concerned help when cardiac issues become complicated. I am thankful to be one of Dr. Cheng's established patients!

Dr. Cheng was 2 and a half hours late for this appt.due to an emergency procedure he needed to perform. This was understandable given the circumstances, however this was the third appointment I had had for this problem. The first two never took place for various reasons. Since I have to travel 150 miles one way for these appointments, that has created some frustration for me. I was assured when making this appointment that Dr. Cheng would see me on time, and once again that did not happen. If I had a viable alternative provider, I probably would not continue with Legacy. This in no way reflects on Dr. Cheng's ability or bedside manner.

This is the first visit with Dr. Cheng. I have had lots of cardiologists. They come and go often.

It was my first visit with Dr. Cheng - he was friendly and listened to me.. The receptionists and the nurses were very friendly.

  Mar 27, 2023
The front office was disappointed or upset that I came to the appointment early. At the time that I was there, they looked like they were juggling more tasks, then they had time for, my experience with the doctors and nurses is always positive, getting to see them as a major pain in the ass

  Mar 20, 2023
This was my first appointment with Dr. Cheng, and I found him both knowledgeable and personable. He had reviewed my medical file, identified a problem that needed attention asap, and gave me encouragement to move forward. He is a professional in all respects!

Very good.

This provider is new to me. My original cardiologist moved to another state and Dr. Cheng became my Dr. Dr. Cheng has a different way to treat my condition. I don't feel he has given me any direction.

He is an excellent physician.

The reason I would not recommend Dr. Cheng is because he can't perform ablations in WA. Dr. Cheng put the stethoscope on the left side of my left breast & I thought that was odd. What could he hear? I don't recall other providers doing that. Largely the visit was enjoyable & I laughed a lot.

Dr. Cheng is the best! Expert in his field and Legacy is so fortunate to have him. I feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor.
