About Me

As an oculoplastic surgeon, I specialize in plastic and reconstructive surgery of the eyelids, eye socket and tear drainage system. Vision is a vital sensory function and the appearance of the eyes profoundly affects how people view themselves. When impaired by trauma, cancer, or the ravages of time, my job is to restore these critical aspects of a patient’s life.

My approach to care is to build partnerships with my patients, educate them about their diseases and offer various treatment options. I guide them through the treatment process to ensure they receive the highest level of care. Patients know themselves best, and given the right information, can make the best choices for themselves.

I’m proud to be part of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Not only do I get to care for wonderful and interesting patients, but I also have the opportunity to pass my knowledge and expertise on to the next generation of physicians.

I grew up in Toledo, Ohio and then traveled the world for 21 years as an Army physician before retiring from the military and moving back to the Buckeye State with my wife and two boys. When I’m not working, I enjoy fixing up the house, watching Ohio State football and relaxing with my family.

Dr. Cho acted as if I was wasting his time. I don't think he ever knows why my eye dr. sent me to him.

Reviewed on Nov 13, 2017

He is an exceptional professional and immediately diagnosed my problem with his expertise.

Reviewed on Nov 05, 2017

He made suggestions but feel that he did not respect and had a nonchalant attitude about my concerns for the results of my eye surgery.

All nurses, doctors and staff gave me personal exclamations on the procedures I would need to complete my needs.

Reviewed on Oct 14, 2017

Does not take into consideration the amount of pain I am having. Was sent to Dr Valerio who is doing surgery in less than a week. They need to take those of us who does not abuse drugs more serious when we have pain.

Above and beyond those responses. Dr. Cho was very professional in his exchanges with me & his staff. Teamwork illustrated precipitated by his leadership.
