    Irene Cheong is very knowledgeable about cardiac issues. She addressed all my questions and concerns thoroughly. She was also kind and showed that she cared about me recovering from my recent heart issues and arterial stent procedure. Scheduled a test to make sure I can recover fully. Gratitude.

    I highly recommend Irene Cheong. I feel like she listened to me heard what I was saying and explained everything and answered every question I had! By the time my appointment was over I understood everything that would be happening next and why. If you're looking for somebody that will work with you she's amazing. I did not feel rushed at all. I felt that I was being given the understanding that having to see any type of medical person involving the heart can be scary and my fears were all taken away. By the time I left I felt like we had a very good plan going forward and I felt like I was included in that process. Highly recommend her five+ Stars!
