I am a med student who is lucky enough to observe firsthand what a brilliant and caring surgeon Dr. Choi is. He is highly respected in the medical community and I hear his praises everywhere I go. He takes personal responsibility for every one of his patients, and will do everything in his ability to help in any way that he can.

His lumbar decompression surgery 16 months ago turned my moderate lumbar back pain into constant severe pain. He missed removing an obvious bone spur pressing against my L4 nerve root. His surgery damaged critical back tissues. My life is destroyed. Choosing him is the worst decision I've ever made in my life. Avoid him like the plague. My pain is worse than ever. He denied worsening the pain, then refused to fix it. AVOID!!!

Terrific neurosurgeon. He’s fused my neck and back. Very professional, knowledgeable, and an excellent surgeon. So many people in the medical field say they wouldn’t go to anyone else. I agree.

Dr. Choi may be a superb surgeon, but the post-surgery experience was awful. No call to the family after the surgery, which is absolutely standard procedure. No one was able to locate Dr. Choi for the discharge. Meanwhile, my wife was waiting for three hours in the car unable to reach anyone who could tell her the outcome of the surgery. This is pretty basic stuff, and somehow the staff missed it and created a lot of unnecessary trauma.

Extremely pleased, terrific doctor. He spent much time reviewing and explaining my symptoms. He is very careful and conservative. I have also observed many other patients who had surgery by Dr. Choi who have had excellent outcomes.

Not good. Ordered MRI then I expected him to discuss the findings with me at the second appt. The office called the day of the appt. and canceled it saying the Dr. saw nothing that could be done. His receptionist told me that he was very busy and was seeing 40 patients that day. How can anyone do justice to any patient without spending time with them. I will seek care elsewhere.

Worst doctor with incompetent office staff. Dr Choi is arrogant, hurried and detached. His staff are equally awful. It's very difficult to leave a message or receive a followup phone call. I had a 3 month relationship with Dr Choi and his staff and it was a miserable experience. I had my cervical surgery performed elsewhere with 100% satisfaction and 100% success. Overall, my experience with Dr Choi was substandard, unprofessional and inept. I would advise you to seek treatment elsewhere.

Dr. Choi is a great surgeon! After a failed surgery elsewhere, I had numerous issues and extreme pain. Dr. Choi has done four cervical surgeries (posterior and anterior)for me along with C 4-5-6 fusion to correct my unfortunate mishap. I will only let Dr. Choi perform surgery on my spine. He is very caring and tells you the truth about your prognosis. Whenever I hear of someone needing spinal surgery, I always recommend his expertise. Brenda Felthager - Denver, CO

Dr. Choi is amazing! After nearly 4 years of excruciating pain and mistreatment from Kaiser, he correctly diagnosed my problem, got me into surgery at Centura in Castle Rock in a few short weeks, and when I woke up I was pain free and able to walk normally. Six weeks later I am only feeling better with every day. He is my hero. The staff is very kind and efficient, the supporting doctors for my surgery were great, I cannot believe how seamless and easy this was.

Beverly Swanson in Denver CO – Mar 11, 2018
From my first consultation with Dr. Choi, I knew that I couldn’t have chosen a better neurosurgeon. He was patient and thorough in explaining what to expect from surgery to discharge from the hospital. His office staff are all helpful, friendly, and efficient. My surgery was all that I could have hoped for, with immediate relief from pain. Recovery has been uneventful and complete. I have told many and will continue to tell friends that Dr. Choi at Precision Spine is the best choice.

Connie in Colorado Springs, CO – Oct 05, 2017
I am 68 and have had 2 prior back surgeries. Dr Choii did a 3 level fusion plus a scoliosis correction on me. My last doctor refused to do more than one fusion at a time so I was glad to find someone who would do it all at once. Everything went well and I am very pleased with the results. I am pretty much pain free. When I get tired my back will ache or if I sleep crooked it will ache until I hit the shower. The scoliosis correction worked very well . I was straighter as soon as I woke up.

Mary in Westminster, CO – Sep 01, 2017
Dr. Choi and the other physicians in his office are top notch. The problem i have repeatedly had is with their scheduler. I literally had to call five days in a row to get a CT authorization sent in which Dr. Choi requested be done ASAP. Even after my insurance company approved the request in two hours, it took three days for the scheduler to get the authorization over to the imaging center. This is ridiculous and completely inappropriate.

After over 4 years with Kaiser, several facet injections, ablasions, oxy etc. we went to Dr Choi. Immediately (first visit) he recognized that my severe long lasting leg numbness and pain was due to problems with L 1, 2, and 3. He scheduled a lamonectomy to halt the progression of leg atrophy and resolved all of my leg issues with that one operation. He was then able to operate and fuse L4 & L 5, 6 months later. This included a realignment of over a centimeter, I am now pain free. Love him.

After a failed surgery elsewhere, I was referred to Dr. Choi for more complex procedures. These included L4-5 and L5-S1 redo of bilatoral decompressive lamintomies, L5-S1 TLIF with BKM peek cages and L4-S1 fusion. These procedures were carried with great skill and care by Dr. Choi and having previously suffering 9 months of almost constant and extreme pain I immediately became comfortable and have remained out of pain ever since. I am very grateful to Dr. Choi for his excellent work.
