in Willoughby Hills, OH |
I have met many surgeons in my time as I have had to have many surgeries.... Doctor Cha is a rare breed of a surgeon.... He is kind, explains everything and listens.... On top of that he did a hernia surgery on me in January and it was the third time the hernia had popped out.... So far it is like a miracle down there and has helped me in many ways..... If I ever need a surgery again I will not hesitate and know who I will see first, and his name: Doctor Cha.....
