Dr. Cheung believes that trusting relationships with patients and referring doctors are built by time and commitment.  That is why he is still on call 24/7 for all his patients.  He is also one of the few remaining ophthalmologists who continue to take call for the emergency room and to see patients on the hospital floors.  His robust electronic medical record system allows him to access his patient records at anytime and from anywhere.  Patients appreciate the priority we place on high-tech, cutting-edge surgical solutions, which permit an unprecedented level of speed, comfort and ease of recovery with optimal outcomes
