    How was your appointment with Dr. Choi?

    Jul 16, 2022
    Dr. Choi performed a partial mastectomy on me. I found her to be very intelligent, competent, and clear. She doesn't waste time, but is available when you need her. Her nurses provide the warm, fuzzy stuff; Dr. Choi provides the expertise. BTW, I had no pain at all following surgery.
