Dr, Cheng is a great guy! So thorough
March 15, 2022
I just think how you can improve is to combine services so that we can just come on a One, Stop Shop and get the field the vision test done 1st and then get the eyes dilated and so we don't have to come back so often because it's hard working and trying to have multiple appointments where it could all be done at 1 time. Okay, okay.

The PIH is Eye Clinic on Whittier Boulevard and I believe that's the La Habra is absolutely excellent. Their care has been very good for me and as they have all taking their time and expertise to help me out in some actually difficult situations because I have macular degeneration and actually, that clinic is the one that discovered it. Within 2 weeks of may possibly losing my central vision. So I owe a great deal to that clinic and those that work there and Dr. Cheng particularly had a huge part in that. So thank you very much. PIH and Dr. Cheng. Thank you.

I didn't feel bad. They were respecting my questions regarding my billing, my insurance. I don't think they had mentioned to me that I needed to pay my copay right there without seeing the claim and what my insurance has would reimburse. So that part, I didn't find very pleasant. So you need to improve on the office staff and the doctor was fine, Dr. Cheng was a really good. I appreciate his services and he was very patient, even though it was, I came for an 8:30 appointment, but I don't think I saw him until after almost 9 o'clock. So anyway, thank you.

Dr... my visit with Dr. Cheng was a 10, all the way through. I didn't listen to all of your prompts in the beginning. He should have had 4s all the way through. Not twos and threes. I apologize. I just didn't listen to the prompts, Dr. Cheng is amazing. I always have a great experience when I see him. I think he's a great doctor, especially when I use him in tandem with Dr. Dudeja, which I have seen Dudeja on Monday and Cheng on Thursday. So I would have to say he's excellent, and I apologize for not listening to the prompts. Bye.
January 05, 2022
Provider was very kind and explained my condition thoroughly so I could understand. His use of models to explain was also very helpful.
December 28, 2021
I liked the way he told me just lot of damage and the back of the eye. He gave me a warning that I should take a vitamin I have recommended by the doctor every day twice a day. And he stressed on it. And that made me feel how important it was. And how much care he takes for the damage of the back of the... eye, which has macular degeneration. So I liked that concern he had. Thank you. Bye.

Fr. Cheng was helpful with the information answering my questions.
October 08, 2021
Yes, good morning. My name is [PHI removed], and the only thing that I see is that this facility, and I've gone to a lot of the PA's outreach facilities, is the parking. I'm 80 years old, and there's hardly any parking. I had to go into the parking lot, and out about 4 times before I finally found a parking space, and even at that, there's nowhere in the area where you could park on the street or a building next door that offers deals, and that's the only thing that I'm wondering, if I can go back to that facility. I'm right now just contemplating whether I should just change to PIH there at the hospital. That's the only thing that is wrong with your facility. Everyone there is so wonderful, but the parking is horrendous, and when
October 08, 2021
