Without any doubt....Dr. Cho is the BEST choice in having ear surgery. Mine was very successful. What once was only 25% hearing in one ear, is now 80% hearing , after a positive, successful surgery. Thx so much Dr. Cho....with wisdom & experience a job well done. Aloha, Rick Hill

After reviewing all ENT doctors on Oahu, I came across Dr. Cho. I went to see him for a second opinion about nasal polyp removal. And he took the time to explain the exact procedure, and explained the different sinuses that are affected and how. And the morning of the surgery, he took the time to check on me and ask if I had any prior questions before the surgery. He genuinely cares about his patients, even being a relatively young doctor. He is down to earth and easy going. Great Doctor !!

Dr. CHO IS A GENUINELY CARING SURGEON! He is very kind,explains everything, and did my septoplasty and turbinate reduction surgery with the highest level of competence. He managed my pain and the HORRIFIC headache afterwards. It was from the anesthetic. I am five days post-op, and I have no pain. The congestion is still bad, but once the stents are removed, it should be much better! Love him!

On a short vacation to Oahu i got a nose bleed that didn't want to stop, something that needed looking at by an ENT which is how i got to meet Dr. Cho. Very happy with how my little nose problem got resolved.

My father had a very difficult condition and the prognosis was frankly not good. Obviously we were hoping for a miracle which did not occur, but Dr. Cho was completely professional and took the time to carefully explain the causes and mechanism of the condition as well as discuss all possible options for treatment. Although we did not really appreciate it at the time, after some research and thought I am absolutely confident that Dr. Cho was able to provide the best care possible.
