Unethical Practices
He deserves zero stars. A patient I know very well has been going to him for the last few years for their knee. Long story short, it took a really long time to finally get partial knee replacement. Imaging based only on x-rays, no MRI, no CT scan to see the soft tissues around the knee. Ankle (yes, ankle) issues worsened after surgery and still no diagnosis. Patient has been given cortisone multiple times in lieu of actual treatment and told healing nicely, yet 21 weeks post-op & at least 16 weeks of PT still cannot walk unassisted. I believe he's milking Medicare and insurance, putting off proper treatment just to keep the patient coming back. Patient requested records that are being withheld, they can only get one picture of the computer screen on their phone & told that the office no longer prints out records. The fact that personal records that the patient has a right to at any time is infuriating. This guy does not deserve to have a medical license.

He helped me feel less stress about my Bursitis procedure, by explaining to me the cause, what to expect, and the after effects of the steroid being applied. Even the follow-up was a great experience. Explained to me how this would play out if this occurs again.

In the past, I have seen other doctors at Oak, and I hold them in high regard. However Dr. Choy treated me shabbily, as though I were an errant child. He acted in a dismissive manner when I asked him to clarify questions regarding my broken heel.
