Went to see Dr. Choma for neck issues, was told I needed surgery set it up and when I came to my lower back had been fused, I had a flank cut and a posterior cut, my 12th rib was removed, my diaphragm had been cut and my abdominal muscles used to repair it, Dr. Choma refused to even see me while I was in ICU, instead the attorney for the University of Missouri was the only to tell me what happened and how Dr. Choma was very unprofessional. Dr. Choma refused to ever see me again. DO NOT USE!!!!!

Dr.Choma and his team are excellent they came and check on my after surgery. The the level of skill and service was beyond my expectations!!!! I the pain I was having issues gone and he wasn't even sure it was going to work. I can't thank him and his amazing team enough.....

After a bad car wreck I went to Dr. Choma. After dealing with other surgeons in the area his level of care, attitude, and people skills are above average and not the norm if you have ever dealt with other surgeons. He took his time answering my questions and those of my family. His level of care was exceptional before my surgery during and after. He never seemed rushed in any of our visits and took his time.

While Dr Choma has an impressive resume, his people skills are horrendous. I had an acdf that had failed to fuse, so I returned to moi, my original surgeon had moved away and I ended up with Dr Choma. The consultation appt was done mostly by his resident, then he came in, sat up on the table, crossed his arms and talked at me. Surgery was scheduled, he told me I would be in overnight, I actually ended up being in 3 days, of which I saw him once for 5 minutes. He is not a nice man to deal with.

I did my homework before going to see him for my second opinion. He was very straightforward and spent an above average amount of time with me answering all my questions.
