board-certified in psychiatry by American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology

Dr. Lucia Cheng is a board-certified psychiatrist who has been treating patients via telemedicine since 2010. She completed residency at Loma Linda University Medical Center in 2008 and during her clinical experiences in the ensuing years, it became apparent to her that there is a large population of people across the United States who are unable to access high-quality psychiatric care due to distance, transportation issues, work schedule, childcare responsibilities, and other factors. Phoenix Progressive Psychiatric Services was started to help address those difficulties by providing high-quality psychiatric care to those who would otherwise be unable to access it. Dr. Cheng also sub-specializes in Reproductive Psychiatry.
