Guthrie Patient: February 2019
Great DR. Great Bedside Manner. Have recommended him to others.
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
*Dr. Choi is an exceptional surgeon and very personal physician.
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
Dr Choi and his staff are superb!
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Other than the more than 30 minute wait in the (very hot) exam room with no explanation for the delay, the visit was satisfactory and met my expectations.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
I like *Dr. Choi, told my friend she was going very pleased with dr. and she was.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
excellent experience.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
Very good experience with Dr. Choi. He operated on my shoulder previously with very good results. I really appreciate and respect his opinion with respect to this second injury as well.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
Absolutely loved the way Dr. Joe listened to my concerns. I feel uneasy about getting passed over and bounced around. I realize I don't have an easy fix and that there are a few doctors involved in resolving my issue, but I don't feel there is any ONE doctor that is taking the 'lead' in ensuring that I get the care I need to resolve whatever is wrong. I am the one pushing to not get dropped off the map.
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
He great doctor.
Guthrie Patient: July 2018
I have the highest confidence in *Dr. Choi. I would trust my children and grandchildren with him.
