About

Bio

I was born and raised in Hong Kong. After graduating with MD-PhD in Case Western Reserve University in Ohio, I finished my internship and residency in Stanford. I am board certified in Family Medicine. My passion is patient care, realizing medicine is my calling. I have excellent training and years of clinical experience to see patients in all ages. I have been invited public speaker in local radio and public health lectures. I am appointed as Stanford Clinical Lecturer and have seen patients in Kaiser, Stanford Hospital Clinic, and recipients of several certificates and award for extraordinary service and teaching. I am seeing private patients in Saratoga Medical Clinic. My special interest is public education in oral/facial problems, and early diagnosis and behavioral treatments of chronic headaches and obstructive sleep apnea.

A 20-year-old male asked:
Dr. Eddie Cheng
Specializes in Family Medicine
Chest wall contusion: If you were punched from the front and feel painful when you press over the area with your fingers, most likely you have suffered a chest wall contusion. You are expected to feel better in a week. If you feel pain with cough, or compression from both sides, you may need to check with your doctor to rule out rib fracture.
A female asked:
Dr. Eddie Cheng
Specializes in Family Medicine
Constipation: How long have you been suffering from these conditions? Have you talked to your doctor about it? Have you tried more fluid, more fibers in your diet? How about stool softener and laxity to improve your BM frequency? You should seek advice from a gastroenterologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
A 44-year-old female asked:
Dr. Eddie Cheng
Specializes in Family Medicine
Allergic reaction: Very likely and unfortunately. Have you tried taking over-the-counter antihistamines to reduce your symptoms? You may need to see an allergist for confirmatory testing and desensitization treatment, if you can't resist having chocolate in your life.
