My experience with Dr.Choi was impressive. He was patient with me when I explained my symptoms. I never felt rushed during any visit. He is extremely knowledgeable and is able to thoroughly explain procedures and give his honest opinion. I never felt pressured to make any decisions. I was amazed at how comfortable I felt with him handling my surgery. One of the best decisions I ever made was allowing him to care for me.

Dr. Choi is extremely helpful. He is the second doctor I have been to regarding herniated disks in my neck after my first doctor couldn't help me at all. Dr Choi spent time with me, came up with a great plan for me, and was very assuring that he can help me. I highly recommend.
