Dr Cha is able to connect but is rushed. I know she needs to see many patients and she does a fine job with my care.

09/27/2016
I am thankful to have such a kind, professional, responsive physician as Dr. Cha. I never feel that she rushes through my appointments, and she always addresses any concerns I might have. I really like the team approach, too, as I find it fairly easy to contact someone through email or phone call if there is a need.

09/05/2016
I think she is an excellent provider given the time constraints she is under. The constant evaluations that I am asked to fill out about her interfere with my relationship with her--not from her end that I see but from my own. It makes me wonder how this feedback is used and makes me uneasy.

08/22/2016
If felt bad for Dr Cha because I came in for a new C-PAP and poor MD had no record from 2 sleep studies at St Vincent done in last 10 years nor any records from DME. Seems like we have more room to work on Medical Record consolidation and aiding MD's from having access to whole picture. I never dreamed that she was not aware that I used a C-PAP. She handled the disconnect well and very professional, now she has the full picture :-)

Dr. Cha responded respectfully to an unusual health problem I'm having. Her sensitivity and caring was unrivaled by any other physician i have had. Her knowledge and openness to an unusual medical problem was exceptional. I would, and have, referred others to her and they are also very happy with her.
