Dr. Cho's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cho "I am board certified in Internal medicine and nephrology. After my residency and fellowship, I moved to Las Vegas and ran a successful medical practice. Within 1 year after starting my practice, I became third busiest nephrologists in Las Vegas, out of more than 50 nephrologists in Las Vegas. On late 2014, I closed my practice in Las Vegas and moved to Los Angeles, as I wanted to move back to Southern California where I grew up. Since 2010, my interest on preventive medicine including vitamin and antioxidant therapy grew more and more in addition to my traditional medical practice. As medical technology has advanced, we were able to achieve prolonging lifespan of people, pushing 100 years for healthy living. I believe this advance has now demanding changes of how medical doctors are practicing medicine. When average life span was mid 60's, some preventive medicine may not been as important. Holistic medicine is now more important than ever before."
