About Angela Cheng

My approach to care: Recovering from a hand injury may not always be straightforward and I understand the different challenges it can pose to one’s physical, psychological and social well-being particularly when it impacts on their life roles. I believe in a holistic approach to my patient’s care and I pride myself on being meticulous. I endeavour to support my patients in the rehabilitation process to empower them towards recovery and injury prevention.

 

I have a sweet tooth and I enjoy baking classic treats for my family and friends. I go for a run every week to keep the calories at bay and as a means of staying active. I also enjoy playing the piano by ear.

 

I can speak fluent Mandarin and Cantonese.
