About Gordon Cheng, MD

I chose to pursue medicine because it offered me more personal satisfaction than my previous career in software. I truly love pediatrics. As a parent of two kids, I have experienced firsthand the thrills and challenges that come with parenthood. My goal for my patients is the same as for my own children — to optimize their health so they can achieve their dreams. In my spare time, I love exploring San Diego with my family, traveling, experiencing new foods and cultures and scuba diving.

Dr. Cheng was fantastic with my 4 year old, as was the nurse. I was worried bringing him in because I thought he would be very anxious about getting his vaccinations, but they made him feel as comfortable as possible and it went so smoothly. Very grateful for their kindness and expertise!

We love Dr. Cheng. On a personal note, my two children were quite the handfuls during our appointment, and I felt that Dr. Cheng was trying to reassure me by telling me that their behavior was absolutely normal for their ages and situation. That made me feel loads more calm and regulated. I really appreciated his understanding and patience.
