What Our Patients Are Saying...

“I have been suffering from chronic back pain for 20 years. I have been to several pain specialists and Dr. Cheng is hands down the best! I have 2 small children and thanks to Dr. Cheng and his staff I am able to be more active with them with less pain. I highly recommend Dr. Cheng to anyone suffering from chronic pain who wants a doctor that is invested in helping you with your pain to have a better quality of life.”

What Our Patients Are Saying...

“EPM is the best!! I have been a patient of Dr. Cheng and Elite Pain Management for several years now. I have chronic pain from injury, surgery, arthritis and degenerative disease. These brilliant and conscientious doctors and staff, live up to their name and much more! Everyone is committed to focusing on excellent patient care, appropriate diagnosis, specialist referral, appointment accommodations and insurance advocacy. The Dr.’s, PA’s and medical assistants, take time to really get to know you as a patient. They treat the whole person, focused on relieving your pain and enhancing your quality of life. …As long as I need pain care, I want to be a patient of the team at Elite Pain Management!”

What Our Patients Are Saying...

“Dr. Cheng and his staff have drastically improved the quality of my life. I came from another practice that was like a “pain mill”-they got you in and out as fast said possible. Dr. Cheng’s office is just the opposite! Whether seeing Dr. Cheng or his nurse practitioner, Irma, I have gotten compassionate care with the time I needed. They have explored other methods of pain control, not just handed me a prescription for drugs and sent me out the door! They truly see the whole person and want you to have optimal overall health, with the most appropriate pain control possible. I’m so very grateful for having found this office!”

What Our Patients Are Saying...

“Always trying new help me eliminate my pain! Dr. Cheng is a new doctor for me, I’ve had 2 very major surgeries for my neck (C3-7 fusion) and shoulder (rhomboid and trapezius tear). I struggle with constant, severe pain. Dr. Cheng is kind and always willing to talk with me about what he can do to make me feel better. If we try something and the result isn’t quite right, he’s ready to talk to me about a new option. His primary goal is to get me pain free. I love it. I know that I’ve chosen the right doctor to eventually reach my goal of being pain free. There has been relief but his goal is to get me 100% pain free, which I’m excited for!”

What Our Patients Are Saying...

Dr. Cheng is an excellent physician. A great staff as well. I have been a patient of Dr. Cheng for a number of years now. He was recommended by top lumbar back specialist and he has been successfully treating my condition. I am very thankful and I would highly recommend this physician to anyone seeking high-quality treatment.

What Our Patients Are Saying...

“Dr. Cheng is a phenomenal doctor. I give 5 stars plus! Caring, listens, 5+ stars on bed side manner, knowledgeable, up to date with medical technology and medicine and solution-driven.

Top notch people ONLY in this office!”

What Our Patients Are Saying...

“Dr. Cheng is OUTSTANDING! I have been seeing Dr. Cheng for about 18 months for low back from a bad spinal fusion, and for neck pain. Dr, Cheng and his staff are fist class all the way and he is an OUTSTANDING Dr. His mother is the office manager and is a great woman who is very comforting and professional. I would rate him 10 stars if the survey went that far!”

What Our Patients Are Saying...

“Dr. Cheng is such a caring doctor and treats his patients like he really cares for them. I really like that he works independently, that way I always see him, not a different doctor each visit, which is how my previous Pain Doctor office. Dr.Cheng’s office staff is always polite and very helpful no matter what additional assistance I ever need. I highly recommend Dr Marc Cheng to anyone in need of a pain doctor, he is the best.”
