twice I have had scheduled appointments with Dr. Choi and each time I had to wait more than 1 hour and 10 minutes and still not seen by the doctor. I got up and left both times and I will not return. In both cases, he took my co-payment and has not returned my money. He may be a professional practitioner but he is very unprofessional in terms of his office staff and management practices. Very disappointing and disrespectful towards his patients. There were several others waiting as long as me but they showed either more restraint and/or patience but waiting over an hour from my scheduled appointment time is totally unacceptable.

Performed cataract surgery on both eyes 5 years ago. My vision improved markedly and has remained excellent to present. His O.D. Dr. Gregory is also excellent and the imaging test equipment including ultrasound is state of the art. They monitor my angle closure glaucoma every 4 months with pressures of 10 in each eye. Vision last appointment (March 2019) was 20/15. Not bad for 76 years old. Great doctors, great office!!!!!!

Had Lasik surgery from Dr. Choi he was very professional and answered any questions. Was scheduled for surgery the following week. Surgery was quick and I'm in my third week of recovery. My eyesight went from a prescription -2.75/-3 to 20/20. Money very well spent. Would recommend anyone wanting or thinking about Lasik to him. Very nice man.

Dr. Choi is an excellent surgeon. I had cataracts removed and astigmatism corrected in both eyes. My vision is very good. My dependency on glasses has been greatly reduced. Great bedside manner - very calming, answers questions, spends plenty of time with patients. He even prayed with me before the surgery. Beautiful office. His office is always crowded and that is because of his excellent expertise and personality. Staff is OK. I do trust him to do further surgery if necessary.

I have been a patient of Dr Choi's for a couple of years now and recently had cataract surgery on one eye. I returned to his office after surgery as requested but it was obvious that neither he nor his staff was prepared. The technician did not know I was still near-sighted and got upset when I could not see anything on the vision screen. When Dr Chou came in, he had me confused with another patient and thought I was going to have surgery on the other eye. It slolw dawned on him who I was.
