Dr. Cheung answered all my questions I had about my health. I didn't feel rushed at all. I didn't necessarily feel exceptionally close to her, or feel like my experience was personalized, but she got what needed to be done and did it well. Would recommend.

Dr. Cheung was great! Really warm and friendly, easy to talk to, and very helpful in answering my questions. She has great bedside manner, and is very caring. She did not rush our appointment at all, and even helped me setup an online profile with the hospital. Very happy with my experience here, and highly recommend. The front desk staff and the nurses were also superb--very quick and efficient. I was in and out, including a blood test, in 30 minutes.

The front desk staff were very nice, but I waited an hour to go into the exam room for my annual check up, and then waited another 20 minutes to meet the doctor. They said computer systems were down. Also askedinformation I had filled out already on ZocDoc and on intake forms. Doctor herself was rushed and seemed disinterested.

Dr. Cheung was so kind and helpful. You can tell that she's truly listening and wants to help you feel comfortable & cared for. I left with solutions and a plan of action to help me feel better, both prescription- andholistic/lifestyle-wise. She was clear about follow-up expectations and gave me many ways to contact her should I need anything further. Overall, a great visit! I would highly recommend her, especially if you (like me) are very anxious about visiting the doctor.

Dr. Cheung was very friendly and expert. The same is true of all of the staff who helped me, from the receptionists to the medical assistant. It was a very pleasant experience from beginning to end. The doctor took plenty oftime with me, taking a complete medical intake history and exploring the current issue in depth. She referred me to a specialist and I was able to make an appointment immediately with the recommended. specialist. I highly recommend Dr. Cheung and the Mt. Sinai clinic on W. 8th St.

I completed check in form online and received the message from Zocdoc - "Your info has been sent to your healthcare provider. Just remind the office that you completed your forms online through Zocdoc!" However, when I got there this afternoon,they said they didn't get it. I filled out the form again.
