Thank you so much, for sharing both your time, and experiences.  Your leadership and participation helped make our conference an incredible success.”

Concerned family consults Cogency in the wake of massive chlorine spill


"I just want to take a moment to thank you for the consult you did on my 8 year old son. It was scary for me as a parent to see my son so sick from the massive chlorine spill at the pool. The intensive treatment at the hospital and subsequent regimen of medications were disconcerting to me as a parent, but your diagnosis of his condition from this toxic chemical, your outline of the expected recovery course and close follow up help put my mind at ease. Today he is active and participating in sports as if he never had the exposure. Thank you again for your care, concern and expertise!"

Cogency helps St. Mary's College eliminate mold contamination


“St. Mary’s College of Maryland is extremely grateful for the services you provided during our crisis in the fall of 2011 related to an outbreak of mold in two residence halls. Presented with significant moisture and mold issues in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee, the College was in need of expert advice to protect the health and well-being of its students as well as develop a plan of action to address the environmental challenges within the buildings.

Mold issues of the scale we encountered are inherently complex. We were very fortunate to have your expertise to help us navigate through the varied issues in a reasoned and practical manner. At all times you kept the best interest of our students first while guiding us to solutions for restoring their living spaces. Looking back at the experience, we do not know how we could have successfully responded to this crisis without your incredible service.”

Dr. Cheung defuses anxiety during town hall meeting


“I have worked with Dr. Cheung’s team on a major Indoor Air Quality issue. This was a polarized incident involving pickets, union fighting for turf and membership leverage. Dr. Cheung had the amazing ability of deescalating the situation, explaining what environmental factors could and could not cause symptomology. He calmed people down, explained complex scientific and medical issues in simple terms and was instrumental in taking a potentially explosive issue and dissipating it and moving on. His advice on how to interact with employees who had concerns or feared they had symptoms, and his quick medical assessment of them along with individually appropriate follow-up or returning to work was both pro-active and, in hindsight, very critical.”

Cogency restores employee confidence after IAQ concerns


“Dr. Cheung’s aggressive approach and highly ethical forthrightness with management and employees have had a very calming, stabilizing influence in these [IAQ] cases. He does an exceptional job and has a very high degree of credibility with both management and employees involved in these situations. Whether the concerns are valid, or the result of hype, rumor and unfounded fears, Dr. Cheung is very successful in explaining in terms his audience can understand, what is (or is not) present in the facility and how it may affect them. He is very thorough in his follow-up, meeting privately with employees who express personal health concerns and conferring with their personal physicians.”
