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

For over 30 years, I have experienced a very painful ear malady and have seen more doctors than I counted. Some tried to help but some doctors just turned away. I was seeing for the first time Dr. Cho, for another medical problem and happened to mention the pain in my ear. He asked about my symptoms and as soon as he heard them, he told me that it wasn't an ear problem, but a trigeminal nerve problem. He was right! He listened and my life has been changed. He is one of the nicest persons to meet, the most professional doctor to talk with, and without a doubt in my opinion, the best listener and educated physician. He also will work tirelessly in finding a remedy for sleep problems. Thank you for all your caring, Dr. Cho.

I rescheduled a sleep study three times and one office visit only to get a certified letter in the mail firing me as a patient from his practice and falsely billing me for a missed appointment fee. The office is disorganized and calls you with only one ring, "I called you". I'm shocked that doctor could be so emotionally provocative and reactive.

I am 82 and really did not want to wear a bi-pap machine. After putting it off for years I decided to listen to my doctors. Dr. Cho is excellent. The machines are so much better than years ago. I have to see several doctors and I can tell you Dr. Cho knows his specialty and has a great bedside manner.

Saw him in early 2018 for insomnia. He prescribed two medications that seemed to help. I called to ask for refills, and he denied that he prescribed the medication. His office seemed very confused. I went elsewhere.

I have a sleep study done with Dr. Cho in 2011 and I was able to get an appointment with him within 1 day. Dr. Cho is very friendly, funny and he knows how to put you at easy. He will eliminate a lot of options before making a quick decision. You don't find yourself always coming back. He reviews your symptoms/conditions and his staff is very friendly. I also love that you don't have a long wait time in the waiting room and also when waiting for him in the exam room.

I NEEDED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT, WAITED 10 MINUTES ON HOLD, SPENT 5 MINUTES CHANGING MY ADDRESS, AND THEN THE PERSON TELLS ME THE FIRST AVAILABLE APPOINTMENT IS JULY 17TH. IT IS MAY 22. I CAN'T WAIT 2 MONTHS TO FIX THIS PROBLEM, I'VE ALREADY BEEN DEALING WITH IT WAY TOO LONG. I AM BEYOND FURIOUS. I WILL NEVER GIVE MY BUSINESS TO HIM OR THE NEUROLOGY CENTER OF FAIRFAX AGAIN. FURIOUS.
