About

Bio

Dr. Kenneth Cheng is Board Certified in Family Medicine and a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians. He is also a co-founder of Personalcare Physicians, LLC, a management company of concierge medical practices utilizing technology and best practices to assist physicians in providing optimal care to their patients. In addition to Family Medicine, Dr. Cheng has particular interest in Sports Medicine and Disaster Medicine. He is a regional expert on Disaster and Tactical Medicine, where he teaches on these topics to local law enforcement and the lay public. Dr. Cheng has previously volunteered with FEMA in New Orleans during the Hurricane Katrina disaster, and he currently volunteers as a reserve deputy sheriff as a tactical physician for the SWAT team, and is a search and rescue team member where he is a rope rescue technician. TO ALL USERS OF HEALTHTAP, BOTH PHYSICIANS AND NON-PHYSICIANS:Dr. Cheng believes that HealthTap can play a vital role for individuals who need questions answered without getting a diagnosis. He also believes that it is reward enough to help those in need and that no additional reward is needed.  As such, he DOES NOT ask for or seek votes, recommendations, awards or other accolades.  Instead, he believes that the true ranking of a physician is based on 1) the quality of his answers, 2) the number of colleagues who agree with his answers, and 3) the genuine and heartfelt "thank you" notes and thank you's.  This is reward enough.  Lastly, he will "agree" with physician answers when appropriate, but will not recommend or vote for physicians as he has no personal knowledge of that physician's skills, personality, traits, bedside manner, or practice style.

Specialties
