I saw Dr Choi yesterday for a consultation and upper endoscopy. The procedure was fine, not painful at all. I was so nervous before, I was in tears, but all the nurses were super nice, calmed me down and gave me the meds I needed. For the procedure. I was aware of it happening, but I guess because of the meds, I didn't feel pain and it went smoothly. I slept for an hour afterwards before getting up to speak to him again. I had a consult both before and after the procedure, before, to make sure

Dr. Choi is very caring and professional. He helped me download the app on the cel phone for colonoscopy and the procedure was painless. All his staffs are kind and courteous. It's very easy to make an appointment.

Dr. Choi is the most highly qualified gastrointestinologist to provide such an affordable service and is the only reason we were able to get a colonoscopy which was way overdue. He and his staff are excellent, very informative, and not only does he explain everything out in detail, they actually provide you with ipads in the waiting room with his very easy to understand videos on a variety of digestive health subjects if you want further explanation. He has brought consumerism back to healthcare

Very good experience. Good at explaining options during the consult. After talking to the doctor, I decided to have the colonoscopy without anesthesia to avoid the bad reaction I had in a previous colonoscopy done elsewhere 10 years earlier. Dr. Choi promised it would be quick and it was. The procedure itself took less than 10 minutes. It was painless, except for a few seconds of what felt like stomach cramps as the scope went in. Highly recommended. Friendly staff.
