Dr. Cheung asked me how my shoulder bothered me other I fully explained it to and was examined by the resident working with her. At that time, she was very COLD, never nodded or showed any sign that she acknowledged what I said. Her bedside manner is scary - no concern shown for my problem and did not reading history.

Dr. was not very personable.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

I will be recommending Emily Cheung to next door Woodside, CA.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Dr. Cheung asked me how my shoulder bothered me other I fully explained it to and was examined by the resident working with her. At that time, she was very COLD, never nodded or showed any sign that she acknowledged what I said. Her bedside manner is scary - no concern shown for my problem and did not reading history.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

Dr. was not very personable.

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

She went straight to surgery. I asked for/got cortisone which has been great and I may not need surgery.

SHC Patient, May 2014

I feel like I'm in very good hands with Dr. Cheung.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

First visit w/dr. suppose to be 30 - 45 minutes - was under 15 min. When I asked questions, she was brusk & told me she'd answer at next visit. (Pre-op) I don't know if I want her to do the surgery.
