Los Angeles, CA |
Highly proficient. My internist said that he was the only one she would see if she needed foot surgery and now I know why.
in Sierra Madre, CA |
Unfortunately for me, I had to use Dr. Soohoo to repair a second broken ankle. Fortunately, Dr. Soohoo does a great job and is very friendly and inspiring. My general practitioner also thinks he is great. High recommendations.
Santa Monica, CA |
Dr. Soohoo operated on my right ankle in January. It was a very successful surgery and I was extremely satisfied with his temperament, skill and follow-up.
