Heather Cheng, M.D., Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the Division of Medical Oncology. She specializes in treating cancers of the prostate, bladder and testes.
Dr. Cheng considers it a privilege and important responsibility to work together with patients to design the best treatment plan for each individual. She strives to tailor treatments to each individual, to maximize chance of cure and prioritize quality of life. She strives to offer clinical trial options whenever possible because she believes that is how progress is made in cancer treatments. She enjoys the teamwork involved in supporting patients and their loved ones through treatment and survivorship.
Dr. Cheng earned her M.D. and Ph.D. from the UW as part of the Medical Scientist Training Program. She is board-certified in Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology.
In addition to educating patients and theirs families, I also enjoy teaching medical students, residents and fellows.
