I would suggest changing the function name to org-switchb (alias
org-iswitchb to use it) and then the documentation reads:

| Switches between org buffers. Defaults to  iswitchb for buffer name
| completion. Set `org-completion-use-ido' to  non nil to use ido
| completion instead.

As an aside I found iswitchb to be a subset of ido and the ido fuzzy
completion invaluable in refiling to various org targets.
