Verified Patient Reviews
Friendly, efficient, thorough and clean.
A great overall experience! Quick and to the point as far as diagnosis and analysis. The in-house x-ray helped rule out any immediately obvious issues and helped us narrow it down to the likely reasons.
Beautiful office, super attentive doc. Awesome chairs!
This office is the future of medical offices. Check-in (filling out forms) was a breeze and I loved that you can do it online prior to your appointment. Everyone in the office was very friendly and efficient. Dr. Choe is to the point and really tries to help. 6 stars!
Very rude process where they tried to get a full medical history for a sprained toe conversation the doctor literally spent 4 minutes on. They insisted I report my race and marital status or not be seen by the doctor! Extremely inconsiderate and unable to describe why they needed that data, when clearly they were just going to look at a toe I'd hurt. Really unnecessary and just aloof.
Really helpful quick and nice. A lot of doctors push expensive remedies; she modified I brought in.
I enjoyed the fact that she gave a range of options instead of imposing on one option on me. Her and her staff were friendly and helpful.
How seeing a doctor should be! Easy online check in, modern office, friendly staff. Dr. Choe immediately diagnosed my problem and offered options to resolve. Very knowledgeable and great at communicating the problem to me.
Dr Choe was amazing and very thorough. She solved helped me with a problem that multiple other doctors failed to diagnose correctly.
I loved meeting with Dr. Choe! She was very informative and provided excellent bedside manner. As far as treatment, she's given me great advice and told me to reach out if I have any questions or if I am feeling more pain. She's a real gem and I will definitely see her again and recommend her to everyone!
Dr. Choe's staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The office operates very efficiently. Dr. Choe was clear in her explanations. I appreciated the ease of getting x-rays right away and her interpreting the results in real time. The office was updated and very clean.
I was very pleased with Dr. Choe's manner. She is very good at explaining options and giving her opinion about the best way to proceed.
Very professional, helpful, informative, and friendly. Highly recommend Dr. Choe.
Dr. Choe was very friendly. She communicated treatment clearly. I'll have a follow up visit in a few days.
Courteous, knowledgable, approachable.
Dr Choe was great. She was matter of fact, but pleasant, and quickly helped me with my nail problem. I'd definitely go back again.
I highly recommend her! She had a great bedside manner! Attentive, receptive to my to symptoms and complaints. I had seen her for a second opinion since the prior (older, male) doctor was dismissive of me and not very good at communicating. She was awesome! She gave me a thorough explanation of my diagnosis with a variety of treatment options and expressed her professional opinion about what she thought was the best approach. She's a great combo of being approachable, personable and professional! Great doctor!
Warm, friendly, and down to earth, Dr. Choe walked through the diagnosis making sure I understood the problem and how to proceed with treating it. Couldn't ask for more.
Great bedside manner and painless procedure—thanks!
Dr. Choe was professional, understanding, helpful, and efficient. She saw me right away, gave me multiple treatment options to choose from, performed the necessary treatment quickly, and had great bedside manner. I'm happy I switched to Dr. Choe and would recommend her! However, she books up quickly.
Simply the best. Dr Choe has excellent bedside manner and is super personable, as is her entire team. The experience as a whole was seamless and painless: from booking to confirming the appointment, to being greeted and the actual consultation, as well as check-out and scheduling follow-up. I've gone back for a different issue already and knew the experience would be as good as it could get. Highly recommend!!
Dr. Choe is great. I was referred to her by my doctor at One Medical who mentioned that she was his favorite podiatrist from their referral list. She took the time to go over my problems, treatment plans and my list of questions. She even recommended specific shoes (with brand and model number!) for my feet type. Office is modern and uber clean and staff is very helpful and friendly. I'll definitely go back. Highly recommended!
While Dr. Choe seems to be a knowledgeable podiatrist, her bedside manner was very disappointing. I was given a diagnosis with little information about the potential causes and options for treatment, and she was visibly impatient with my questions.
They were really personable, attentive and knowledgeable. I recommend!
Dr. Choe was so great! Extremely prompt, friendly, and informative. I would highly recommend her practice.
She was knowledgeable, friendly and easy to talk too. And my foot feels so much better ??????????
Dr. Chose is great. Everything from being seen immediately at the scheduled appointment time, to walking me through the procedure, to finally executing it very quickly and professionally. Would highly recommend her to others.
Dr. Choe was very friendly and explained everything to me thoroughly. She asked a lot of really insightful questions about my lifestyle and gave good recommendations for how to take care of my feet moving forward.
Dr. Choe is just the best. She's kind, calming, thorough, and efficient, and her office is great about getting you in and out quickly. Can't recommend her highly enough!
Great explanation of what she was doing and my diagnosis. Very friendly and easy to talk to. No wait at all.
The receptionist was very friendly and I was seen right away. Dr. Choe was very friendly and professional. Hopefully I won't have to make a visit anytime soon with any problems, but I definitely would if I need to see a podiatrist!
Very nice office - doctor and assistant were very thorough and helpful.
Dr Choe was great, she explained things thoroughly, came in almost immediately after I was finished with the assistant, and the fact I could come in on Saturday was a huge plus.
My first appointment with Dr. Choe went very well. Came in because I thought I had an issue (which ended up being the case.) After throughly examining me and asking many relevant questions, Dr. Choe knew what the problem was and gave me a diagnosis with a treatment plan that day. Her bedside manner was calming which I appreciated, and she was to-the-point but kind. I got the feeling that she really cares about her patients. I highly recommend her.
I am pretty fearful of doctors in general (and have managed to avoid them for quite some time) but I have been having pretty significant foot pain that I couldn't ignore any longer. From the front desk, to the technician all the way to the consultation with Susan, I was comfortable, informed and reassured. Office is incredibly clean and I was very impressed by how up to date all of their equipment was (all digital.) I would highly recommend this doctor as she seemed well educated and informed.
Dr. Choe was professional and engaging. Her explanations and recommendations were clear and precise. I have full confidence that I am receiving the care I need.
Informative, personable, helpful, comfortable. If I had to choose four words to describe both the Office itself as well as the staff (assistants and the Doctor alike), these would be them. Dr. Choe took the time to explain all of my questions and all of her suggestions, as I informed her it was my first time visiting a Podiatrist. She helped get me on my way with more insight on how to prevent issues in the future, and when to see her right away. Smiles on faces in this office makes me happy to give a glowing review.
Dr Choe was excellent with my wife! She is very professional while making my wife, who is highly allergic to pain, comfortable as a cub at an unguarded picnic! Dr Choe was knowledgeable and answered any and all questions about the procedure and concerns about possible interactions with medication during my wife's pregnancy! Highly recommended for all your podiatric needs!
Dr. Choe's office was speedy and helpful. I'd definitely go back!
Dr. Choe was great. She was very patient and kind and took the time to explain my procedure and answered all of my questions. I am looking forward to visiting her in the future.
Fantastic experience from end to end. Office is nicely appointed, staff friendly, helpful & efficient and Dr Choe is not only knowledgeable but also has a lovely, consultative manner taking time to explore all options & to ensure all needs are addressed. Plus they're open later to accommodate many working people's schedules - all in all a very patient focused & experience minded office.
Felt like she wasn't the friendliest ...I'm trying to have a surgery and her responses to my questions just seemed very cold and I am surprised that she doesn't try to make the patient feel assured or comfortable about the process.
Amazing. I am really happy with Susan!
I found her Caring. She listened. She gave excellent advice. I totally recommend her. I should have gone earlier. She probably saved my feet. Thank You. I will be returning soon.
SHE IS TRULY AMAZING. SO HAPPY THAT I FOUND HER USING THIS SITE.
I came to Dr. Choe after 2 other doctors gave me vague answers and no clear direction on therapy for my injury. Dr. Choe was methodical and sympathetic, coming up with a course of action but ultimately putting it in my hands (rather than bullying me into surgery). Also, the staff is great, particularly Michael.
Susan Choe is 100% there for your concerns and will do anything to help.She is knowledgeable and efficient.
I was very pleased with the service by Susan and her team.
I liked that she was able to tell me what my foot treatment options were, pointed out what options were and weren't covered by my insurance, and she was able to treat me right away starting on my first visit, which meant saving me an additional trip to start foot treatment.
Found her on ZocDoc, filled out my paperwork before I got to the office and the whole appointment was done in about 45 mins total. No hassle and very friendly team
She is a great doctor to recommend with excellent bedside manner. She takes her time to explain the result of the injury and listens to the patients concern. The office have great staffs who take good care of their patients.
Friendly, informative, considerate. Not at all pushy. Her assistant/receptionist was the same. Would see again should the need arise!
My visit, although very grave in subject matter (Dr. Choe diagnosed me with fifth metatarsal fracture and I found out that I won't be able to run the marathon I've been training for), went very well. I was admitted right away and was out (with X-rays, boot fitting, blood pressure tests, etc.) in an hour. Glad to see that medical office visits are becoming a whole lot more patient-friendly. I'll be back (for a checkup) with a smile.
Dr Choe was great, she listened to all my questions and was very patient and informative.
She was extremely professional, and the office was very welcoming. More importantly she is very knowledgable and was able to diagnose everything properly.
I had a running-related foot injury, and I was a little concerned that Elevate Podiatry was really more of a spa than a medical facility. I shouldn't have worried, Dr Choe was very knowledgeable and asked a lot of questions in determining that I had plantar fasciitis. She took x-rays and explained to me different exercises I could to heal my foot on my own without pressuring me to buy custom orthodics. She took a very holistic approach, not just focusing on fixing my plantar fasciitis but explaining to me how I could strengthen my very-flat feet now so that I could I avoid further issues down the road. I would definitely recommend.
Very Professional Doctor. She knows the reasons behind certain developing issues. She did not try to sell me into buying custom made orthotic inserts. She wanted me to check with my Insurance, cautioning me on how the Medical Insurance are behaving recently. Was able to do a professional job on my infected ingrown nail.
This was a follow up I followed the Doctors orders, and I am seeing much improvement. The staff is great too. Thank you Dr. Choe.
Best. Doctor. Ever. Thank you again!
She is knowledgeable, well mannered and is engaged with her patients. I would recommend her.
Absolutely wonderful! One of the best doctor's I've seen, the office staff is amazing. Highly recommend!
Professional; excellent communicator. I will follow the Docs instructions, and do a follow up in 3 weeks to see if this treatment is successful.
She was amazing! Kind, thorough, communicated effectively regarding my treatment plan and my various options. I'm hooked! Her staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. She also has later appointments which is great for the 9-5 types who don't want to miss work.
