Wonderful experience. This appointment reduced my fear level and gave me hope that I wasn't going to die soon. Had bad experience with my cardiologist at Premier in Dayton which left me feeling there was nothing that could be done for the blockage in the "widow maker". Dr. Cho is an interesting, confidant physician.

Dr Cho was very arrogant, dismissive and rude to us through tout the appointment. she was rushing and had IT issues. She focused on that. She would ask a question and we would try to answer and she would tell us to stop talking after we said 2-3 words. We felt very overwhelmed after we left. We promoptly requested another CCF MD.

I have seen Dr Cho for years . I respect her and want to like her. a few years ago she encouraged me to call her before anyone ordered any additional cardiac studies. I did just that and she was downright mean, belittling. brought me to tears. I finally told her about this during this visit and didn't even get an apology or acknowledgement that there was some opportunity for improvement

Dr Cho entered the room and was immediately rude, curt, acting like she was in a hurry, and sarcastic. I consider her behavior unprofessional.

Dr. Cho never really spoke to me personally and during the angiogram asked me to not speak. I think she's amazing but bedside manner was a bit tough.

Dr Cho is apparently excellent in her field. I think I was thrown int the mix unexpectedly and she must have been tired. I tried to ask question and explain pain but was told not to talk. she spent very little time with my husband. 3 minutes. Again, I hear she is amazing but perhaps it was a bad day! overall Cleveland Clinic is amazing!

dr did not remember me or even know I was a previous patient (she had access to my records but obviously had not gone over them). she was short, abrasive, and judgmental. she was dismissive and curt when asked questions, implying that I was dumb for worrying about something I didn't understand. l am an educated compliant patient who was made to feel like a bothersome child. needless to say, I will be searching for a new dr.
