These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

The front desk staff is very good and helpful. But Dr. Cheng's medical assistant, [...], is very slow in getting back to me regarding questions, UTI problems and assistance. I realize she is very busy but maybe more staff is needed in this area to serve the patient better.

Had an extremely long wait for the doctor in the exam room. If I had brought my ipad I certainly would not have been bored out of my gourd. There were not even year old magazines like in some other waiting rooms. The longer you wait the more anxious you tend to get.

Very knowledgeable, believes in a patient and doctors partnership, takes time to listen, others in similar practice could learn from her approach to the the patient. She is a great addition to providence. Please keep her there.

my initial visit included being a new patient & the Doctor was on call @ the hospital, therefore my appointment took longer than usual (2 hrs) but she did not cut my office time short & she apologized for being late, which I appreciated

Dr. Cheng is extremely knowledgeable regarding her specialty - urology. She explains in clear and lay person's language all the variables of urological conditions, and, specifically, addressed my health issues. She provided a course of action and how each step in my treatment plan would work toward healing.

Date for scheduling cystoscopy is too distant considering medical circumstances, including hematuria and discomfort..

Provider indicated contradictory medical information from previous appointment which would have resulted in the wrong testing to be completed if patient had not questioned the recommendation for testing. Dr was then unsure of previous recommendations and contradicted self again while looking up the recommendations on Google while in exam room with patient. Dr. did not appear to have reviewed medical records before appointments and referral reason.

She is extremely busy; there are few Urology specialists around. She sent me emails at 12:30 and 4:30 a.m. She is very good, but very busy!

I felt that what I had to say was discounted by the doctor. The doctor did not obtain my reports ahead of time. Provider made recommendations without taking into account my prognosis, my desire for quality of life over quantity. and ordered blood tests that were done five days prior. I thought she was an alarmist.

I just don't understand why when referred by another MD it should take 3+ months to get an appointment when having a definite medical problem

From checking in to checking out everyone and I mean everyone was first class.

Dr. Cheng is an excellent doctor. The only bad experience was my cancer came back. Not her fault.

I've had my symptoms off & on for 4 years. I wanted a diagnosis that my primary care provider couldn't do. [...] had a prescription - cleared the infection but never rec'd a reason for why this keeps happening.

Waited a long time for a appointment

It was easy to get my primary doctor to refer me to a specialist, but not easy to get an appointment.

03/15/2016
Very good provider but appointments get cancelled and rescheduled. Office staff, and provider all very respectful, knowledgable and generally care about your concerns and health. Just scheduling issues.

Over a period of nine months I had 2 lithotripsys. Review of x-rays & explanations of procedures were excellent. I helped make decisions as appropriate.

03/14/2016
The only thing I would have liked more of was follow up on the results of the urinalysis, which -- compared to earlier tests ordered by Dr [...] and others previously -- seems to be showing increased blood traces [...]. As far as I know (because I haven't received an email telling me to check my MyChart), neither doctor has sent me an explanation of what that change might mean. I'm still concerned because the pain has persisted, but I know I am seeing Dr Cheng for follow-up in three months.
