    Areas of Expertise
    Dr. Laura M. Cho made the decision to be an internist because of her belief that every patient deserves compassionate, respectful, high-quality care. Her approach to achieving this goal is to diagnose chronic problems early and provide state-of-the-art treatment for diseases such as diabetes and high cholesterol. This approach is a high priority for her, as she believes that early diagnosis and treatment help her patients stay healthy and well over time. Dr.. Cho attended the University of Southern California School of Medicine in Los Angeles, graduating in 1993. She completed her internship and residency in 1994 and 1996, respectively, at the Kaiser Foundation Hospital, Los Angeles. She is board certified in Internal Medicine. Dr. Cho gets personal satisfaction from taking care of post-menopausal women, offering them broader treatment options, such as the use of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Above all, Dr. Cho sees each patient as a precious human being, rather than a case or app
