Dr. Choi is great but the Office is still current with Technology which sucks. What's up Robert Washington, M.D.! Why you not buying new computers, fax, scanners for your office support staff and doctors. You need to be Hipaa compliance. Where is your website? Neither your business: L A Physicians & Medical Group or LA Physicians is register with CA Secretary of State.

Dr. Choi has been my family doctor for about 2 years, and so far I feel comfortable with him as my primary physician. I chose dr.choi since I've known him through ER, and so far I trust his judgment when it comes to my health issue. When it comes to urgent needs, he handled through his clinic same day. I recommend dr choi if you are looking for knowledgeable doctor who you want to trust about your health issues.

Dr Choi always seems busy but somehow he gets done what he needs to do and goes over and answers questions that i needs to be addressed. At times I had to wait too long but i guess its like that at most doctors office He talks to me like to a normal person and not condescending and not in profesional jargons and I am ok with it

I was referred to him by my co-worker. Dr Choi is primary care physician for many of my co-workders and he is a very caring , hard working doctor. Only thing about him is that he is involved in too many things and his availability is limited but when I call for same day appointment for urgent issues he will always squeeze me in his schedule. His office is located inside a hosital and its elevator often doesn't work and waiting room can be quite crowded but i can't complain

I'm a healthy late 20s male so I pay for the bare minimum health coverage plan, which means I don't expect the highest quality of service. However what I do expect--and simply didn't get from Dr. Choi--was the ability to schedule appointments and some basic level of warmth from him when I did actually meet with him. They never answer their phone, which requires you to leave a message asking them to call you back. Unfortunately, they never call back. Point is, I've switched to another doctor.
