Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Cho performed an emergency small intestine reconstruction surgery on me in December 2018. I am convinced he and Dr. Swedler from St. Francis saved my life. My family had been told there was a significant chance I wouldn't survive. When I met Dr. Cho after surgery, I found him to be very caring. In the times I saw him following surgery, I came to feel he must be a kind, gentle soul. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
