What People Say About Dr. Mickey Cho, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was delighted to find Dr Cho at TSAOG. He was my hand surgeon last year at BAMC before I lost my Tricare benefits following divorce. I felt very comfortable with Dr Cho from the very beginning. After trying shots and OT he explained the surgery options I had. While I was terrified of the surgery after viewing it on you tube, I felt surgery had to be better than the pain I experienced daily. Surgery was performed on both hands about 6 weeks apart. I was unable to follow up with Dr Cho until last week when I saw him at TSAOG. I was so impressed with everyone I met at the office. Everyone was super friendly and professional in performing their specific task. Dr Cho was also exceptional in his attention and care to my listened intently to complaint. I was impressed with his recommendation of the least invasive treatment first, as opposed to surgery. I will tell others about him and TSAOG. I love that they “get” the importance of good customer service. Terri R. Hadden

My teenage daughter had multiple visits and an outpatient surgery with Dr. Cho. The appointments were always on time and Dr. Cho was professional and exceptionally good with both myself and my daughter. The surgery was just as good. He is a very knowledgeable and professional doctor.
