I went to see Dr. Cho as a follow-up to my craniotomy. Dr. Cho took the time to explain my films and answer all of my questions. Dr. Cho was very knowledgable and explained things clearly. Most importantly, he was very reassuring and he calmed the anxiety I had regarding my condition. I was recommended to Dr. Cho through another patient and I would do the same without hesitation.

Can't say enough. Lots of folks (nurses, MRI techs etc.) said he was a great doctor. It's validated. I was scheduled for surgery. I'd lost left-arm usage due to cervical disk issues. I felt reassured about Dr. Cho given all the verbal accolades. On surgery day I was prepped, IV inserted, ready to go. Dr. Cho walked in, checked my arm, and saw that some function had returned. He cancelled surgery right there, on the spot. Sent me home. Take THAT, Obamacare! A doctor of integrity!

Working with doctors is my profession. I was reluctant to see someone I did not know. After meeting Dr Cho for the first time I knew immediately I was in good hands. He performed my back surgery which was needed to remove a cyst from my spine which was causing numbness & terrible pain in my low back & left leg preventing me from being able to walk. The care that I received from office staff, O.R. staff, & hospital staff was phenomenal. Dr Cho is truly an exceptionial experienced 5 star surgeon!
