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.

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! Extremelyinconsiderate 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.

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!!

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 atcommunicating. 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!

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 listof 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.

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 andgave 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 allthe 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.

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 myquestions 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.

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 myhands (rather than bullying me into surgery). Also, the staff is great, particularly Michael.

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 areaddressed. Plus they're open later to accommodate many working people's schedules - all in all a very patient focused & experience minded office.
