Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher.

Biography

Dr. Cheng has provided psychiatric services in Oregon since 1990 after completing his postdoctoral fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at the Yale University Child Study Center. His major clinical interests include ADHD and treatment of immigrant youth from around the world.

Dr. Cheng is an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry at OHSU. He has a longstanding interest in psychiatric education. In 2010, Dr. Cheng and his co-editor Kathleen Myers had the second edition of their textbook, “Child and Adolescent Psychiatry: The Essentials” published by Lippincott Williams and Wilkins. The target audience for this textbook includes: pediatricians, family practitioners, psychologists, psychiatric social workers, as well as medical students, residents, and child psychiatry fellows.

Dr. Cheng is the chief medical officer at Trillium Family Services (TFS), Oregon’s largest provider of child and adolescent inpatient treatment. He has extensive experience providing clinical leadership for TFS treatment teams taking care of Oregon’s most mentally ill youth. In 2010 he joined OHSU’s Child Division to develop services in their outpatient clinic and the Oregon Psychiatric Access Line about Kids (OPAL-K). The OPAL-K project mission is to provide Oregonian pediatricians and family practitioners psychiatric consultation so their patients can have their mental health needs optimally met in primary care settings.
