23/03/13 5 5 5 5 Anson Cheung a very skillful caring doctor who replaced my Mitral valve with a composite ring after he had operated on others at 3pm in the afternoon with one days notice to me,he fitted me in as a 76 yrs old man, I was so weak and only able to go upstairs on all fours. Since then I have been able to go out on a bike several times a week. St Paul's staff also were 100%,took great care of me. Once discharged and in the hands of my GP my problems came who had no idea what they had to "check up" on me. If you are booked for work with Anson,relax you got the best you could wish for,not a bit of doubt in my mind,who was admitted with a lot of fear. Now in my 80th year my heart is trouble free thanks to Anson Cheung and the staff on the 5th floor.  Respond

12/12/11 5 5 5 5 I was medivacked to St. Pauls for a heart transplant. (from Prince George) The emergency ward here gave me a 20 percent chance of surviving the trip. I thank God when I arived Dr. Anson Cheung wan in the building. First he saved my life, then he saved my heart. He went out of his way to introduce himself to me, when the drugs had worn of (2 weeks later).And i'm grateful to have a face to put to the name of this "angel'. He is a world renouned surgeon and a very modest and caring person. He could work anywhere in the world , and he chooses Vancouver. And I am so glad he does. Both Dr. Cheung and St Pauls hospital is top class, the BEST.  Respond

15/04/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Cheung changed my life in many ways after a valve replacement. After many years of Cardiomyopathy and Heart Failure and then the Mitril Valve leaking my quality of life has not been that great. Since the surgery I have much more energy. I can think a lot clearer. Even remember things better. I am very grateful for everything that Dr. Cheung and his surgical team as well as the nurses at ST. Paul's Hospital did for me. I feel better than I have in years. I have four grandchildren one only six days old. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to meet the newest member of our family, but because of Dr. Cheung's brilliance I did. Having the energy to play with my other grandchildren is such a blessing. I don't think thank-you is enough. You have changed my life Dr. Chueng and I am so grateful. The other posts are correct, You are a very caring Dr. From the bottom of our hearts my family and I thank you. I wish the very best to all the people that post on this site.  Respond

09/02/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Cheung recently performed my heart transplant. He is a remarkable surgeon, and a really nice guy. I was very comfortable when I first met him, and continued to be throughout my time in hospital. He saved my life, despite the odds, and a brutal 14 hour surgery with multiple complications. How can you ever thank someone enough for that.  Respond
