Dr Cho performed a partial hip replacement on me due to an accident. I’m 6 mons po and back to my full activities. I feel very lucky that the ER contacted Dr Cho. I’d also like to commend the staff at TSAOG - all of my follow up appts were handled professionally and timely - even with all of the changes going on with Covid. Dr. Cho - thank you again.

Dr. Cho and his staff are great. I sustained a wrist fracture which could be detrimental to my career as a fishing guide. He explained my best options, answered all my questions clearly, made me feel comfortable and most importantly, had a successful surgery. Everyone in the office is very friendly and helpful as well. Thank you!

It was my first visit with Dr. Cho He was very attentive, compassionate and understanding with my concerns. I was able to get an X-ray in the office, I didn’t have to go out to an imaging facility. He read my X-ray and discussed his findings on the first visit. I’m currently scheduled to have my surgery. I would recommend Dr. Cho to my family and friends.

Direct and to the issues I am having. Took immediate steps to alleviate pain in my Elbow with strap and new stretch. Both helped greatly at gym this morning. Directed me to a nerve study, at which point we may have more information to focus on cause or causes of shoulder pain!

My first time there as a patient with Dr. Cho. He was very attentive and concerned for the reason I went. I felt very comfortable as I’ve been battling this issue for over a year. He’s determined to find what the cause is for my pain. I highly recommend Dr Cho and the group he’s with.
