In brief: Hot red cheeks

Facial flushing is an annoying and very visible skin issue.
The causes run the spectrum from "no reason, it's just you" to some very serious issues. There is a pathway we can follow to help determine what causes it, but if your physician has already done your evaluation, there should be no cause for worry.

In brief: If your doctor...

...Is not concerned, you probably should not be either. Of course, you always have the option of consulting another doctor for a second opinion.
"hot red cheeks" is often a symptom of rosacea, which can be triggered by anxiety, among other things.
