SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Cheung's attentiveness to the patient and "bedside manner" is very impressive. She is a very pleasant doctor who acknowledged my comments, and answered my related questions. Too bad she doesn't operate on knees! :(

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Excellent.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

This was my 3rd rotator cuff repair. I'm from Chicago, but not live in Humboldt County & didn't feel care was up to par in Humboldt. Happy with my decision to go to Stanford and Dr. Cheung.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

The facility is 45 min. from my house. I felt there could have been more time spent examining my issue.

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, Apr 2014

I've always had a positive experience at Stanford & with Dr. Cheung.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

I think that Dr. Cheung is a fantastic surgeon. My physical therapy team is AMAZED at how well I am doing.

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.
