Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Alex Cheng showed compassion especially dealing with my situation- it’s a bit complicated. He took the time to listen to the situation and he addressed my ENT(Ear,Nose,& Throat) concerns head on and he created an effect action plan to ensure this process will go smoothly. Dr. Cheng also reviewed my MRI and took a look at a few things right in office ,(but before we did he made sure I was comfortable.) The Dr walked me through every step ,as he completed the procedure. I really appreciated his calmness and his genuine approach and compassion to help all those regardless of their sex,gender, or race. He has truly helped me a lot and I definitely would recommend Dr. A. Cheng to anyone who needs an awesome ENT and even those who are nervous about going to the ENT, or those who may fear discrimination-Dr Cheng’s whole approach will make anyone feel completely comfortable, He is a great find and I’m truly blessed to have found someone as great as him!! I can’t forget the staffing at the Alexandria location , the staff here I love what they do they are very informative and so very compassionate! People from all walks of life which makes the atmosphere bring so much positive energy to you when you come and when you go - you get that ahhh! Kind of like that great feeling when you leave your yoga class -ahhhhh..,,NAMASTE !! Or maybe it’s that great find- it’s like that authentic restaurant that you find that’s a hole in the wall and your unsure but when you give it a try you’re amazed by what you get and mind-boggled by what you almost missed out on!!! This is here !!! Please give them a try you will NOT regret it!!
very professional,kind young man.
Always very professional and thorough and makes sure you understand everything that's going on... any treatment options, questions, testing, etc. Highly recommend!!!!
Very caring Doctor. One of the best! Would highly recommend him
This was my second visit with Dr. Cheng and both visits he was very professional, courteous, thorough and he made sure to explain everything to where I could understand it. He answered any questions I needed answered and made sure I left there with the most knowledge possible about what was wrong with me and what my next steps would be. I would definitely recommend him in the future to anyone that needed an ENT!!!!
He is incredibly patient with my very active toddler. I appreciate the time he spends with us and that he isn't quick to make a rash diagnosis. He wants to make sure we have the best course of treatment and that I am comfortable.
Very professional, helpful - looked for multiple options.
Great doctor, highly recommended Doctor cheng answered all my questions and concerns. I feel much better, but i will definetly continue my treatment with him.
Perfect visit with a good doctor.
Short and sweet, which I like. He was direct and treated me where i told him where my pain was. Definetley recommending him in the future
Dr. Cheng good of what he does, He explained to me about my allergy and I listen to him.
He was very pleasant and professional.
Dr. Cheng is great. He is very personable and attentive.
He was quick and efficient, but I still felt like he listened to my concerns. Appointment and script pickup all taken care of on my hour break.
Excellent. I have appreciate the professional attitude of Dr. Cheng. The Office is not @ 1st floor but @ ground floor.
He is a great doctor and covers all his bases.
Felt very rushed and hardly checked-out. Not pleased at all with the visit and currently looking for another Doc to do another consult. On a positive not, the Office staff was very pleasant and attentive.
His great, always listens carefully and answers all my questions.
Dr. Cheng is a very thorough Doc. He takes his time with you to get to the bottom of your issue.
Super friendly . Dr Cheng could tell my daughter was nervous he made her feel comfortable. We where an hour earlier for our appt we waited about 15 minutes they was calling us back to see the Dr. The staff very friendly
Visit was great. Only problem I had is that , I thought when you make a appointment it should be made at the time it was made for,Not 30min later. Also when the person doing the ear test should complete it and not be interrupted by other staff
Dr. Cheng was pleasant and knowledgeable!
The wait time was ridiculously long, which is the reason why I'm hesitant to see him again for a follow up.
I had a sinus infection and needed to be seen. Dr. Cheng recommended that I use a netipot. I used it but I kept having some ear discomfort afterwards and called the office after about a week of my visit. When I called and explained about the ear popping noise I kept having and whether I needed to come back in, she told me she would have to get with Dr. Cheng and call me back. Well it's been a week later and still no calls. He was in a different office that day and she even asked me to call him myself. I insisted for her to reach out to him since we've been playing a bit of phone tag already. Overall my initial visit was okay but I was looking for an ENT specialist who could also help me with my questions whether I am there or not.
Dr. Cheng was very patient informable and had excellent bedside manners. I felt very comfortable with him and felt that I was in good hands.
Dr Cheng is very thorough and attentive. He listens carefully, and treated my son gently and respectfully. He performed pre- and post surgery appointments as well as the surgery itself. My son healed very well under Dr Cheng's careful oversight.
Great visit. Very pleasant
Would definitely recommend this practice. Wait time was short and I was able to get an appointment on short notice. Dr. Chang was wonderful and was able to take care of my problem.
I really liked the way my condition was explained and the level of customer service that was extended to me.
The actual visit w/the doctor was fine but thought there was too much duplication of my health History information. For example, gave requested info over the phone when scheduling appt; had to write out much of the same info when I reported for the appt; and provided some of the same info for a third time just prior to seeing the doctor. The inprocessing needs to be streamlined.
Dr. Cheng is amazing. He was not rushed like allot of Doctors these days. He took time to explain my issue, testing and diagnosis. He was very patient and kind while performing a procedure. I would highly recommend him!!
Very professional and very quick. Most efficient doctor's office I've been to in a WHILE.
Due to our referral being delayed, it took a bit to be seen but once the referral was received, we were seen within 3 mins. This was a pediatric visit and Dr Chang always is very good with my son. My son trusts and likes Dr Chang A LOT.
My experience was not positive. I felt like the examination was rushed. He piled a bunch of pills on me and told me that he wasn't even going to try to treat all my symptoms (sinus pressure and nausea) - instead he insisted that all my problems were seasonal so he gave me some pretty strong allergy meds that then really messed up my depression. Overall, it was a negative experience.
This is not my regular doc. I went for a job requirement. I found the clinic to be slow and disorganized. The faculty was not very clean and the staff was not customer service oriented. A admin Assitance was very loud and unprofessional with a women that was arguing about her co-pay. The unperfesstional behavior continued once the unsatisfied customer left. There was confusion about who should have taken my blood pressure. I had to submit to a drug screening and answer questions in a pubic area. I did not feel that my privacy was being protected .
I'm feeling better after seeing Dr. Cheng, thank goodness. I had a case of vertigo that was handled in his office today. I feel better and will follow his advice to take it easy. This was my first visit and I highly recommend him! He listened to my concerns and made me feel comfortable since I wasn't sure what to do. Thank you, Dr. Cheng!
I came in with my husband who had an appointment and mentioned an issue I was having. Dr Cheng saw me and even took care of the issue.
Dr. Cheng is very down to earth and clear with his advice and recommendations. Easy to understand and very active in my treatment.
He was very helpful. Explained everything to me and appeared to really care about me and my condition. He looked for solutions and gave me recommendations
This was a first visit so I had my paperwork. I did have to have my referel faxed over since they would not take it on a prescription pad since I'm in an HMO but the receptionist took care of all of that and was a pleasure to work with. Dr. Cheng was very good about speaking to me in an informative but casual manner and since I'm having a lot of nasal issues came up with a plan of attack to get us to a point where we can attack the issue and not just treat the symptoms. I'll try to follow up with another review later in the process.
Alex seems very knowledgeable, professional, and personable,. He was also very patient with all our questions and did not give the impression of being in a great hurry - though he must be extremely busy! Appreciated the visit and the service very much.
I genuinely appreciated the superb care that I got from Dr. Alex Cheng! He was AWESOME! Very thorough and extremely patient, especially considering that he inherited an extra patient/pupil in my rambunctious four year old son lol! I had a reoccurring problem and he took ample time to attack the root of the problem and ensure that it didn't continue to pester me. He made certain that the issue was benign and not cause for concern or cancerous. I had a in-and-out surgical procedure that was done expertly and caused little discomfort and am currently on the mend. If ever in the future I have any other ENT problems, I will most definitely be scheduling my appointments with Dr. Cheng!
My son was a bit nervous about his appointment but Dr. Cheng was able to make him laugh and be comfortable while still maintaining his professionalism. I'll definitely bring my family back to him if any problem should arise.
I had a great visit. He answered all of my questions and I didn't feel rushed.
My wife was extremely overwhelmed by Dr. Cheng's friendly and kind way of caring for her needs. A friend of ours at church, Pete Williams goes to this office for his hearing problems. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Cheng to the people at our church. I was happy to hear from my wife that she was found healthy and well. She has been through a lot since January. Twice in the ER room at Sentara. January four days and March five days. Both were for a touch of pneumonia and the flu. I caught it at school while teaching in Stafford county. My hat is off to Dr,.Cheng. Thanks again!
Very professional, friendly and knowledgeable.
