Dr Choi spent a lot of time going over all of the past history and notes so he completely understood what had occurred to me . Very impressed with his knowledge and care. A lot of understanding with our situation of having to leave our last Infectious Disease Doctor due to Insurance. We would highly recommend Dr. Choi to anyone who needs a Doctor in Infectious Disease.
