I first used Dr. Choi when I was searching for a psychiatrist to treat my mother around 5-6 years ago. He successfully treated her and throughout the treatment he was extremely kind and also cautious in giving her the right dosage with the least amount of side effects. Fast forward to 2017 and I needed treatment for my illness. He successfully treated my illness with minimal side effects. I can't recommend him enough and I would also recommend him to anyone else seeking a psychiatrist.

Amazing! Dr. Choi listened intently, and really connected with my son. He appreciated my son's desire to not treat with medication and assured me about his ability to use a more holistic approach. We left feeling more optimistic and positive about his recovery. I'd recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Choi is always very professional. He actually listens to your issues and wants to help you get better. He recommends treatments and explains in detail how they should work. I have never had a psychiatrist care so much about my actual problems they usually just want to prescribe some pills and get you out of there. He listens and gives feedback in such a personable and caring way, many times relaying messages of his own life stories that may help you understand your own issues better.

Cho is the first and only psychiatrist to work with me in a way that is allowing me to truly self-heal. He's compassionate, patient and easy to talk to about the most intimate issues one may have in their own psyche. I feel blessed to be in his care and am sure that I will continue to progress in this meaningful work of self-improvement he's helped me engage in for nearly a year.

I find Dr. Choi Choi to be a very unique psychiatrist. He somehow is able to make you feel completely comfortable and safe to share anything you may be struggling with. He never judges and takes in everything you say during your session. I think its very nice that he shares his experiences or struggles with you so that you don't feel like your all alone, he just gets it and I wish there were more Dr's out there like Dr. Choi Choi
