    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I went to doctor Cho for sore throat that hadn't gone away in about a week. Doctor Cho requested for a Strep Throat test and then took a look (a long look) and somehow determined that nothing was wrong. I then asked Doctor Cho if it was normal to have one side of the throat so swollen and painful and no pain on the other side. To which he took another look (long look again) and became more concerned, but still said to give it a few days to see if it goes away naturally. After a moment of silence, my girlfriend asked Doctor Cho if the bumps on my uvula were normal. To which he looked puzzled, took another look (long look again) and became more concerned. He then said that he is unsure, referred me to a specialist, and asked if I had any questions?! What?! I wish I could post a picture here, because within five seconds the average person would be able to identify the swollen tonsil, red and swollen right side of throat, and bumps on the uvula. It look Dr. Cho three looks, and my girlfriend and my input to make a simple diagnosis - and then an "I don't know but you should see a specialist” to top it all off. I left this doctor with extreme frustration thinking, "Why did I even go to the Doctor? I am going to get a bill in a couple weeks for what?" I haven't been to a doctor as incapable as this one, DO NOT go to doctor Cho for any reason. Doctor Cho you have received my first poor review of a doctor!

Great doctor for 11 years.

Thanks to Dr. Cho being thorough, I was lead to the right treatment and sometimes specialists for various issues: Polycystic ovaries, hypertension, severe anemia and obesity. My parents see him too and agree that he is very thorough. He doesn't push you off, he spends time with you during visits, asks questions, answers your questions, follows up personally or has his nurse call to give test results. He is up to date medications and health concerns. He takes interests in his patients: their career, families, travels, etc. I like his staff and the fact that te office is open nights and weekends. I recommend Dr. Cho over an over.

Pragmatic and consertative approach to health

I find Dr. Cho's medical pragmatism to be very helpful. I am a mid-30's male and have seen Dr. Cho on a few occassions. He is very reluctant to "medicate", and chooses a more conservative approach by treating symptoms. At first, this was difficult to accept. I had a cold and wanted antibiotics. He was reluctant to prescribe becuase he believed I had a virus and anti-biotics would not help. He did prescribe them to me but advised against their use, and instead asked me to let the cold run its natural course. Reluctantly, I took his advice. The cold went away in a few days. I appreciated his medical advice not to "medicate" unnecessarily. He has taken this same approach on other areas where mainstream media is advocating for a health solution but has suggested not doing it simply because "it's popular". I value this medical approach because I feel that he is more interested in treating a symptom and not simply trying to make me feel 100% better immediately. Treating the sysmpton is what I need, even if feeling better is what I want.
