Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Choi ""I make sure that patients are partners in their own care.  By spending time with my patients and getting to know them, I can understand what a successful outcome means for them.  Our professional guidelines will determine things like who needs a surgery and who doesn't, but we can't know the ultimate benefit of a particular course of treatment without the patient's input.   I love my work, but seeing a patient get better is what's really gratifying."  "
