What People Say About Dr. Michael Choi, MD
Reply
Dr Choi is kind and compassionate. He explains my medical information very thoroughly. I don’t feel rushed. When I leave my appointment, I feel at peace and calm. Going to an oncologist can be a very scary thing. But I have such trust in Dr. Choi and he explains everything so thoroughly, but it makes me feel better.
