What People Say About Dr. Miran Choi, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

When I met Dr. Choi I had been on various meds for over 15 years, and I had tried, unsuccessfully, with 2 different psychiatrists to wean off. Dr. Choi helped me get off my meds safely. She brought new ideas to my case that no other psychiatrist had tried, such as medication compounding to taper meds more gradually and genetic testing to see how my body processed medication. Her novel approach turned out to be the key to helping me reach my goals. I highly recommend Dr. Choi.

Dr. Choi was very clear, compassionate and enthusiastic about helping me figure out what was best for me and my lifestyle. I had never been on any medication prior to my visit and she really helped de-stigmatize the process and help me become the best version of myself.

Very kind. Very helpful. I always felt that Dr. Choi deeply cared. She went above and beyond any psychiatrist I’ve ever had before.

I saw Dr. Choi for almost three years and the only reason I am no longer seeing her is because of insurance changes. My experiences with her were nothing but positive. I have seen many psychiatrists who spent only enough time with me to write a prescription and charge the co-pay but Dr. Choi is not one of those doctors. I felt as though she genuinely cared about me and my health and when I was in crisis she always spent the necessary time amount of to talk with me and help me process.

I was referred to Miran by the Tang Center while a student at Berkeley. Miran is a very difficult psychiatrist to work with. Each session seems a bit like an interrogation and she is a mostly cold and insensitive person. She occasionally surprised me with how kind and compassionate she could be, but when she is in a bad mood it really affected how she treated me and I wished several times that I hadn't decided to keep seeing her. If you can find another psychiatrist you like, avoid Miran Choi.

I saw Dr Choi mostly for medication management, once a month. She was willing to speak to my therapist when I would ask her to, since I saw my therapist weekly. She also helped me navigate an issue I was having with my insurance. Since I saw her monthly and at different times of the day, it was easy for me to forget our appointment, so it was extremely helpful when a couple days before our appointment, Dr Choi would send me a reminder and ask for confirmation of our appointment.
