Just wanted to give Dr. Choi a thumbs up from me. He has been my doctor through two very different Breast Cancers. I tell him everytime I see him, that he and my surgeon saved my life,then he in turn will sayYou are awsome. I have to say, that makes me feel pretty good. From my very first appointment, through chemo and radiation, and now taking the five year cancer pill, he has explained everything from side effects to percentages for doing or not doing a certain treatment.THANKS Dr. Choi!

I was diagnosed with MDS, and I am so impressed with Dr. Choi and the wonderful caring staff at the Thunderbird clinic. Dr. Choi keeps close track of my treatments, changes them when necessary but what I like best is he sits and talks, explains, answers my questions and he's funny! I'd give more stars if I could, a great team!

I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma Dec. 2012 in advanced stage. Dr. Choi was instrumental in my treatment over the ensuing 3 years. He prescribed a schedule of radiation, chemo, and stem cell transplant. He arranged for treatment at Fred Hutchison Cancer Center in Seattle. He has continued monitoring my progress. I have found Dr. Choi to be a very kind and caring man that my wife and I feel fortunate to have had as our lead doctor on my treatment and recovery protocol.

Six years ago, I was diagnosed with 4th stage inoperable cancer and told me to go home for the inevitable. Then, I met Dr. Choi. His expertise, humanism, empathy, and encouragement, are the reason that I am with my family today. His sincerity as a person shows he puts the mental, spiritual, and physical well-being of his patient first in his endeavors. I believe that Dr. Choi can end each of his days knowing that he has given his best in the quality and quantity of care.

My father was a patient of Dr Choi. He has been undergoing cancer care primarily of the bladder and discovered later of the liver. My dad saw Dr Choi for an update. Dr Choi told him coldly you have stage 4 cancer and have 3-6 months to live .... No compassion no alternates no heart. My dad said well I'll have to get a 2nd opinion. Dr Choi stared at him and asked why... My dad said so I can live. Dr Choi left... My dadhas since sought treatment at Mayo Hospital and is 9 months further along.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
