Dr. Choi is very professional and efficient, listening carefully and answering in full and laymen's term. She is very warm and personable. I am always completely satisfied with my visits, either in office or virtually by TeleMed.

She is a good doctor but does not have kind people skills. She is direct and to the point. No fluff.
