Dr. Choi got me back to work after having a lumbar lamenectomy that left me on disability with extreme low back and leg pain. I have continued to see him every year for an epidural or two. He really cares about what's best for the patient even when insurance carriers get in the way with denials. I have always recommended dr. Choi to all of my friends with failed back surgery syndrome. He is very very knowledgeable in pain management.

Dr Choi is wonderful! He's been successfully treating my back pain for years without the use of narcotic medication. He will give you an honest and fair advise on what treatment is best for you. Would definitely recommend to anyone with chronic pain!

Went to him cause I have cervical issues plus lumbar spine and neuropathy on top of a degenerative disease. He is the worst doctor. Doesn't want to update my referral just to put my DX on it he denied to when he the one who sent me with that referral. My therapy office has been resending him faxes for an updated referral for my therapies and he denied to do that as well! Find another pain management doctor! He's not worth it!!

I have never met such a nasty, sarcastic, and judge mental person as Dr. Choi. Having multiple herniated discs throughout my back and being in terrible pain, he suggested that I go work out to feel better. Really? He didn't offer any of his available procedures such as an epidural or acupuncture. When asked about these options, he replied with a smirk, "well maybe that would help." He had no interest in my medical issues or in finding a way to give me relief from my pain. What a whack!

Dr. Choi is the most condescending and rude nasty person I have ever dealt with in any aspect of life. I was referred to him by my insurance company because I am in search of a pain management doctor after some very severe surgery that I have had this year. I left his office crying. I would say to anyone that is considering going to see him please try to find someone else. I would hate to see anyone subject themselves what I have experienced with him.
