Philosophy Of Care

I believe patient care should begin with establishing a relationship based on mutual trust through clear and open communication. Paying keen attention to the patient’s history and exam leads to an accurate diagnosis and early development of a patient-directed treatment plan. I strive to listen to unique patient concerns and understands the desire to return to daily activities, work or sports. My goal is to provide compassionate care no different from how I would treat my friends or family members.

Dr. Choi was very kind and patient. Explained everything clearly to make sure I understood what was shown on my xrays. Spent time discussing what to do and what this might mean for my future. Very nice demeanor.

Doctor was very honest about the severity of my situation and how I can no longer do physical activities that puts pressure on my shoulder. It was a hard conversation.
No Rating Given
Probably one of the best doctors I have had at Edwards Elmhurst. Finally a doctor that listened and did not think everything was in my head, or nothing was wrong.
