I've been seeing Stephen for the past few months regarding an ankle problem. He is the man. Best doctor I have ever had. Too bad he isn't a PCP! He is so much better than the past doctors I have seen for my ankle. Super friendly, listens to everything I have to say, and is eager to help. Office is cozy - just Dr. Cheung and Deb in the front desk. Deb is one of the only front-desk workers I've ever met who is actually nice. My girlfriend and I have dealt with tons of doctors recently and it's surprising how awful and rude some people can be, but Deb is a saint. Always happy and friendly. I recently moved and it now takes nearly an hour to get to his office. Worth the drive. If you're having ankle/foot problems, you gotta go to Dr. Cheung!

He is a very nice doctor and knows the problems almost immediately-- he can just look at your feet and know what's wrong. I have come in twice, most recently to get orthodic inserts. The only bad side is that you have to wait a lot; when I came in I waited 10+ minutes and also had to wait again when he called me back. But otherwise he is a good doctor and takes care of your feet, the receptionist is really nice and helpful too.

My left big toe was in great pain, and badly swollen enough as to make it difficult to remove the sock on that foot. Dr C. got the shoe and sock off with almost no additional pain. He then showed where the pain was coming was coming from, took 3 x-ray views of the foot,

I saw him for the first time yesterday and he quickly gave me a list of options for ways to handle problems I've been dealing with for years, and for which I've gotten no help from other podiatrists. I've already implemented several of his suggestions and gotten good results. Also provided high quality referrals to pedorthist and physical therapy. I've only seen him once, but so far, I'm very impressed! I've made a follow-up appointment to pursue several other suggestions he made in the first appointment.
