Dr. Choi is the only neurologist I've seen for my MS that has not insisted on expensive testing that reveals no useful information or expensive and invasive potentially harmful drugs. I have been managing well with a low fat plant based diet and he actually was respectful of my efforts. He is a real human being and competent to boot. No hyped drug pitches and no hassles. Definitely recommend him. Thanks Dr. Choi!
