From the very first moment I walked into the office the staff was amazing. They’re so empathetic and compassionate, and they really made me feel comfortable at a time when I was super nervous, it is spinal surgery after all. When Dr. Choi came into the room, he was so up beat and calm and explained everything in a way that was so easy to understand. I am a nurse myself so that makes it a little easier but even when my family came they understood as well. He is very visual, so using the tools he has he explained the procedure in detail. On the day of surgery, even though the hospital was an hour and 20 mins away, it was worth the drive. Dr, Choi and his associates explained everything about the procedure in detail and made me feel so comfortable and not scared at all. My procedure was at 730 in the morning, and Dr Choi came to see me at 1130 that night to make sure I was ok! His office staff has been nothing short of amazing. They all have a wonderful attitude and all seem to enjoy their jobs. Linda, the surgical coordinator went above and beyond to answer all of my questions. I also was an out of network patient and the staff went above and beyond with my insurance company to get everything covered. I hope that I never have any other issues with my spine again, but if I do I know exactly who I’m coming to see. Being able to feel my fingertips and turn my head for the first time in years without pain is so emotional and amazing, and I owe it all to Dr. Choi and his team. Highly highly recommend!
Dr Choi and his staff are absolutely amazing. All are very professional, friendly and courteous.
I had to have a laminectomy, Dr. Choi calmed all my fears about the surgery. I cannot speak more highly of him; he is knowledgeable and caring.
Quick and very friendly! 1st time here and I feel like I’ve been a patient for years!

Dr. Choi is an excellent physician. I had my spinal surgery done with him and I feel great!! The patient level care is outstanding. I highly recommend him. 5 stars! Thank you Dr. Choi.
Extremely professional and caring demeanor! Dr Choi fully explained my condition and it’s processes in a language I could understand. The staff is just as wonderful and professional as Dr Choi.
I came to Dr Choi on a recommendation and let me tell you, I am SO GLAD I did. I had major back issues and needed surgery. Dr Choi and his staff, made sure that everything was taken care of. All I had to do is show up. From pre op testing to discharge. Dr Choi even came to the hospital at 10:30 on a Sunday night because I was having issues. What Doctor does that??? His kindness, respect and compassion is unmatched. He made me feel comfortable having the surgery. Highly recommend. Let’s not forget his assistant Linda. She answered emails within minutes. Handled everything and I never felt like I was bothering her ( tho I know I was). Just an amazing crew!! Thank you Dr Choi, Linda, Marissa and Ryan for being just the best ever!!!
Staff is very nice, very helpful! Dr. Choi is great! I highly recommend. Great first time visit!
