Dr. Cheong was very thorough and explained everything in detail pertaining to my specific needs. I’d had several surgeries and he explained my options to the fullest. We’re waiting on the results of the fluid drained from my knee.

Dr. David Cheong is not only a wonderful and talented surgeon but a compassionate human being. Kind and generous with his time and understanding. I had both shoulders replaced and my recovery time was limited because of his skill! I highly recommend Dr. David Cheong. I am thriving and lucky to have had him as my surgeon! Very grateful!

Although I had one knee replacement, Dr. Cheong would be new to me. At first meeting he answered all my questions even though I had the procedure before. The office staff efficiently scheduled my operation and went over every stage from hospital admittance to follow up visit. Kudos to Heather, Meghan and especially Christine P. for their friendliness and understanding. Dr. Cheong may be a man of few words but at his visit on morning of the operation, he was compassionate and reassuring. I was able to go home the same day, followed medication regiment and never had any pain through 3 weeks of recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Cheong !

-Maryellen Moran | May, 2022

First and foremost the surgery was a success, after a life time of hip pain after the surgery and recovery I have zero pain from the hip. As for Dr. Cheong, his explanation and treatment through out the process has been nothing but excellent. If you are considering any type of orthopedic surgery Dr. Cheong would be my first and only choice.

Dr. Cheong helped me when I thought there was no hope. He is very caring and considerate. He did an excellent job with my knee replacement, even after a second replacement was necessary due to a faulty prosthetic.

The most compassionate and sincere doctor I've had the pleasure of being on my side. I couldn't imagine being in the care of anybody besides him, as he was absolutely magnificent in both explaining to me the diagnosis in a manner which I could understand but also being absolutely charismatic and understanding.

Being referred to Dr. Cheong was a blessing. I first met him last fall with a worn-out hip that had been replaced over fifteen years ago. I limped into his office with leg length discrepancy (one leg was longer than the other), had a completely worn out hip, and was in incessant pain. My previous...more

I first met Dr. Cheong February 25 2016. Dr. Cheong diagnosed a Tibial Fracture. No frills or unnecessary xray . I feel he treated me with knowledge and skill. Remarkable is the best way to disscribe this wonderful human being! Thank you for this opportunity to express my gratitude.

Dr. Cheong always had time to discuss my concerns and answer my many questions. Post-op, Dr. Cheong always took time to visit me in hospital and check on my recovery. His assistant, Juan, was most, courteous, helpful and prompt when returning my calls. I highly recommend Dr. Cheong and his staff.

Dr. Cheong is one of the best doctors we have ever had, and a real credit to OAWF and Mease Countryside Hospital. His skill and personality are impeccable and when we asked the nurses how they enjoyed working with Dr. Cheong, they couldn’t say enough about his skill and treatment of the patients and nursing staff.
