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

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

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!

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.

This was the first time I had seen this doctor. He was very thorough and professional and likable.

Doctor Cheng was absolutely wonderful during this visit. I had many questions regarding my previous ablation procedure and the results of the Holter monitoring I had just completed. Dr. Cheng listened to each and every one of my questions and concerns patiently and throughly went one by one with complete answers that were easy to understand. He also took the time to pull up information on the computer and explain what he was showing me. All of my questions and concerns were answered 100%. Dr. Cheng also ordered lab work done that day since it had been several months ago these had been done. Dr. Cheng is very compassionate, takes the time to listen and answer questions. By the end of my visit I was elated with the decision he made regarding the further treatment of my Afib. I highly recommend him.

Very satisfied

All the medical providers I have seen at this and previous visit were lovely, prompt, an competent. The front desk staff has consistently been a disaster. They can't make appointments until the schedule opens up, and then all slots are taken within a few hours for the next 3 months. They have also never successfully relayed a message to my provider. I use myhealth on the web exclusively now.

Both nurse Pam and Dr. Cheng were calm, collected, and smoothly organized. They got the job done efficiently and with courtesy and friendliness toward me. No time wasted, but without making me feel rushed.

My appointment was canceled twice at very short notice I was able to see Mr. Cheng on my third attempt.
