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.

Excellent experience! I can not say enough about DR CHOI, KELLEN. My wife had seen this doctor maybe 9 years ago at the .. so when I was looking for an orthopedic dr, I didn't have to search around since we knew right away who we wanted to see. Dr listens to your concerns, pays attention to details, thoroughly explains what it is and the treatment options. Thank you so much Dr Choi!

Dr Choi was excellent. Spent a lot of time explaining his diagnosis and treatment. He made sure I understood what exercises I should do for a good outcome. When I left the office, I felt so much better knowing that this was a doctor who really cares and who will help me.
