There is so much that is changing in this field, and I love that I am in this academic environment where I can provide up-to-date and evidence-based care. I hope this passion comes through when I interact with my patients, staff, and students."As an associate professor of medicine at UC San Diego School of Medicine, Dr. Choe is actively involved in training medical students, residents, and fellows in the field of endocrinology.Dr. Choe completed his fellowship and medical residency training at UC San Diego School of Medicine and earned his medical degree from Columbia University in New York."

Patient Comments (1)

in San Diego, CA |
Honest, kind and considerate. Easy to get along with. Very knowledgeable. He gave me lots of information and also helped me make the best decision for an insulin pump based on my needs. Due to other medical conditions it was a harder than normal decision.
