Patient Comments (3)
in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA |
She has s one of the doctor I have ever have see. She listens to everything you have to say, that's why you might have to be patient. That's what you want in a doctor.
in Laguna Woods, CA |
Dr. Choan ordered blood tests that were not covered by Medicare. The diagnosis codes did not match up with blood tests ordered. After many attempts to have the correct codes submitted to the lab, her very rude staff informed me that she would not submit revised codes. When I asked why she ordered blood tests for a undiagnosed condition, her staff informed me that it was my responsibility to pay for the tests because she ordered them. They apparently are standard tests - nothing rare.
in Mission Viejo, CA |
Dr. Choan treated me for approximately 15 years for chronic and severe migraines and for complex partial seizure disorder, both of which she initially diagnosed. She is attention and compassionate, and I would recommend her to others.
