Step 1

Talk With Dr. Choi

You’ll start your first visit off by chatting with our Long Island spine expert, Dr. Choi. He always takes the time to listen to your concerns with an open mind and gain an understanding of your situation and needs. He’ll ask you about your pain and symptoms, collect your medical history and answer any questions you have.

Step 2

Physical Examination

Next, Dr. Choi will perform a thorough physical exam. He’ll assess your spine and may ask you to perform certain movements to evaluate your mobility and determine if they trigger your pain.

Step 3

Imaging Tests

Many times, Dr. Choi will order medical imaging tests, such as an x-ray, MRI or CT scan. These diagnostic tools allow him to visualize the anatomy of your spine, determine or confirm a diagnosis, evaluate the extent of your condition and create a treatment plan.

The Path to Relief

Once you’ve completed the requested imaging tests, Dr. Choi will take your conversation, exam and diagnostic records into account. He’ll walk you through his findings and diagnosis and present you with personalized treatment recommendations.

Generally, we’ll start with conservative measures, such as physical therapy and injections before considering surgery.
