    How was your appointment with Dr. Choi?

    Jul 09, 2020
    Dr. Choi is both an incredible surgeon and person; we are lucky to have him in the HV. He has a level of understanding and compassion that few doctors do. Don't be fooled by his dark sense of humor (I mean, you kind of have to in order to be a colorectal surgeon), he is one of the most caring doctors I've ever had. I'm guessing some of the other reviewers here are older/more conservative and don't appreciate his sometimes brash levity. He was just the right mix of top-notch surgeon, straightforward, and no BS. I did, after all, trusted him with my life. His nurses and co-workers all love him, which says a lot about him.
