Dr. Cho is the true gift to my life because she brought me a sense of health, well-being, and awareness to teach myself to be good to myself. She treated holistically inside and outside of my whole being, rather than treating an issue with a drug. It was an enlightening journey with her because she had a compassion, patience, and incredible insight and talent to see you as a person.
I can't thank her enough! 5 Star doctor!!!
Dr.Cho is simply amazing in what she does and how she makes you feel like you are the only one in her practice with such a personalized, attentive , comprehensive care.
You will be blessed to have someone so interested in your health and well-being!
Dr. Cho is truly a world-class doctor! She is always there for me and reaches out to me even though i travel all the time with busy schedule. She keeps me in a good health with her dilegence, knowledge, and passion in medicine. She cares for you as a doctor.
She is thorough, thoughtful, and accurate with her diagnosis. Her holistic approach to health with eastern integrated with western approach is what I love about her philosophy of medicine the most. I got cured with my chronic heartburn and stomach issues have been cured with simple lifestyle change and other natural remedies, instead of lifelong medication.
She is an excellent doctor. Kind, knowledgeable, compassionate, and smart. Her office is also professional and gets me in when I need Dr. Cho urgently and takes care of me in a way that I am the only one in their practice at times. They took care of all my prescription authorizations and follows up all studies and calls right back. Wonderful!

I really like the doctor. Unfortunately it costs me an arm and a leg when I see her. She had blood work taken and instead of telling me results over the phone I had to pay a copay and parking fee to see her. Her hours are also very limiting and her practice has a habit of double booking. And I think they overcharge the insurance for the services rendered. I wanted to like her but business practices are keeping me away.

While Dr. Cho is smart and a very good doctor, her practice is HORRIBLE. I have been going to her since 2003 and will now not go back. As other reviews have mentioned, the constant overbooking of patients, the AWFUL and RUDE office staff and the PATHETIC billing practices have ruined an otherwise fantastic practice.
I believe that when a patient has an appointment, he or she should see the doctor within 15-30 minutes (at the most). The last several times I have gone to see Dr. Cho, I have waited over an hour and a half before I even saw her. I have a job. I can't be out of work for that long. She simply overbooks patients and expects them to sit there waiting for her. It's unacceptable.
In addition, she double charges for things that most doctors charge once. For example, if you get a blood test done, she doesn't call you with results, have her nurse call you or leave you a voicemail like other doctors. She requires you to come in, make another office visit (and pay the copay, of course) to simply get your results! This is true even when the results are normal. I asked her office to fax me the results and they refused until they I came in so that they could get the co-pay from me. That is blackmail, not medicine. When I asked Dr. Cho about this, she exploded with anger. I couldn't believe it. I got my results and left and will not go back.
Finally, her billing is unbelievably bad. I have been billed for the same visit up to five times. When you call to let them know that you've been billed (AGAIN!), they get very hostile about it and accuse you of not paying. I just can't spend all the time it requires to stay on top of the billing problems of her office any longer. I'm done.
It's a shame that her practice has become a money-grab because she really is an excellent physician. Avoid Dr. Cho's office and you will be a much happier patient.

Dr. Cho is the best doctor that I have ever had. I've been going to her for about three years. She keeps up on the most modern research and uses state-of-the art testing. She will try holistic, natural approaches before resorting to Western medicine that may have side effects. I have always had high cholesterol, but thanks to Dr. Cho, my cholesterol has been dropping for the first time ever, and I haven't had to take lipitor. She is really enjoyable to talk to, and she has a near-perfect memory. I highly recommend her.

Even with an app. it takes an average of 45 min wait. over the years I have seen her about 4 times. Every time I run into the same problems, over charging, unfriendy stuff & bad billing practices.
In my last visit Dr. Cho ordered several unecesary lab test. resulting in a VERY EXPENSIVE visit. I had NO ILLNESS to report. It was just a regular check up. My insurance is pretty good but I still had to pay about $400 out of my pocket & I think there will be more charges.
Dr. Cho ordered test that even the technician was surprised she ordered. Usually this test are ordered for people that present symptoms.
I think Dr. Cho is more interested in making money that in your health or well being.

This is a review for DR. CHO ONLY, not others in her office. I like her enough to join and write a review. Dr. Cho deserves 6 stars because she is smart, smart, smart!
Long story short, she routinely performs tests that most other doctors don't (at least not the ones that I've been to) and this allowed her to see that there was something SERIOUSLY WRONG that my boyfriend had for YEARS and was missed by doctor after doctor and which led to Chronic Renal Failure. He probably would have been hospitalized if he went for just a few months longer without treatment.
In addition, she was able to see us immediately after she found the test results and she was very kind and understanding, she took time from her schedule to sit and talk with us about his results, and referred us to a fantastic nephrologist.
As for the office staff or billing, We've never had a problem, and frankly, I would rather have a good doctor and deal with errors by the staff than have a doctor that makes errors and great staff.
I recommend her highly.
I have been a patient of Dr. Cho's since 2001 with a brief intermission due to relocation. She is an excellent diagnostician. She is highly personable, compassionate, and listens to a patient's personal point of view on their own medical care; she is open minded and extremely knowledgeable. It is true that there is an occasional wait, however, I'd rather wait occasionally and have excellent care than have a doctor who is always prompt yet delivers inferior service. I have a complicated medical history and Dr. Cho is solely responsible for diagnosing two particular issues which were ignored by other doctors; her persistence has saved me much pain and has kept me off medication. Her current staff is excellent. Any problems with insurance is due to the insurance companies and not Dr. Cho. I would recommend her to anyone. And then, perhaps one of the reasons she is so ""booked"", is that she is a phenomenal doctor and in demand.
Dr. Cho is great. She's thorough, caring and all-together an excellent doctor. I've gone to her since 2003. What I really like is her creativity ... she thinks things through and does not go immediately for the ""pat"" answer. I also like that she really is interested in alternatives. Sometimes I have to wait awhile, but not always. The staff she has now is great! They work with my insurance company without a lot of participation by me, and that's great too. I've recommended Dr. Cho to several folks, all of whom have been happy.

Dr. Cho is typical of many docs today; constant overbooking = long waits and overworked staff that is unresponsive to very poor.
Customer service is not a concept in this office. They are horrible about calling you back, as we speak I have been on hold for almost 10 minutes.
The doctors that fill in for Dr. Cho (at the last minute after waiting eons for an appointment) have been really inept - prescribing the wrong medication, the wrong dose, etc. charging me for a copy of my own records when I had to change docs due to a new job...
The worst thing - when she prescribed meds that weren't approved by my ins she didn't do one thing, didn't make one call, didn't write one letter, to give them the backup info and research needed to cover the almost $350 med by insurance.
I need a dr that cares about and treats the whole patient - including fighting insurance when necessary. Even if I hadn't changed jobs I would have found a different GP - this is not quality medical care.
First of all, it is illegal to collect my entire medical deductible before my medical insurance dictates how much is owed to you. Secondly, you resist to promptly issue a refund despite all correctly proven documents reflecting a credit balance. Horrible experience...will never refer!

I have had more billing trouble with this office than any other office I have dealt with, and on top of that, have been treated very poorly in trying to sort out billing issues. I have been yelled at by billers and office managers from issues that were ultimately those of the office. They have overcharged me on three occasions, even though I am an in-network patient and they already billed my insurance. I have also had issues with them writing prescriptions and have had to call them three months in a row to get a refill that I was promised would be sorted out each time. I scheduled an early morning appointment to avoid a wait, and ended up waiting for more than an hour before I was seen by a doctor.
I should note that I did not see Dr. Cho directly, but another doctor that worked at this facility.
