Dr Choy always seems to be in a hurry. Terrible bedside manner. Would not recommend to young single women as notsure she understands many of the issues facing same. Has always kept me waiting. Doesn’t explain what she’s prescribing so it can come as a shock at the pharmacy. Have to slow her down and ask specific questions to ensure she’s doing everything you asked.

Dr. Choy is a consummate professional. I had the pleasure of being in her care for another procedure and she proved to be extremely knowledgeable in her capacity as a surgeon. I highly recommend her for her amicable "bedside" manner and the very professional office staff!

Everyone in the office was really great! Dr. Choy was very nice and personable. She is moving locations soon but was very forthright and let me know in advance (especially because I’ve had a lot of drs move in the past and I wasn’t notified). My wait was closer to 15 min (no big deal to me) or else that would have gotten the last star!

The establishment was clean and well maintained. Dr. Choy was kind and attentive. She actually listened to my concerns and took them seriously. It was such a great improvement from the last doctor I saw. She also has a great sense of humor! I felt comfortable asking my questions and felt that she was genuinely concerned for my well-being. I would recommend her for others!

Just had my first prenatal appointment with her, and she was great. This is my first pregnancy, so I was nervous going in. Dr. Choy was friendly, personable, and patient with all of my questions. I also appreciated that she wasn't overly serious with everything. She made jokes, which put me at ease, and when I asked her about eating specific foods during pregnancy, she was very light-hearted with some of my ridiculous questions. She knows her stuff, but isn't too stuffy with the information. Very excited to have her looking over me and baby over the next 7.5 months :)

Dr. Choy rushed in & mentioned how she was running behind & still had so many patients left to exam. She acting as if she didn't want to answer my questions and sounded annoyed when responding. She also kept insisting that she couldn't trust my answers because she didn't know me. She just made me feel like I was a (inconvenient) number.

I did not have a great appointment. The front desk staff was very rude. It does not take a lot to break a smile. I asked questions regarding insurance matters and expected wait time and got "I don't know" answers with attitudes. The wait time was > 1 hour and > 2 until I saw the doctor. I came in with a specific problem and was suffering from extreme pain. Dr. Choy did not care about addressing or diagnosing the problem - she was only focused on selling birth control.

Dr. Choy’s office is very convenient to my office. She is quick and efficient. Sometimes a little too quick (she forgot to check for breast cancer during my annual exam). She was in and out in what seemed like five minutes. Yet the wait time was about an hour. I’ve always had to wait but this was unusually long.

She was very nice, professional, and most importantly listened to my concerns. The office is small but neat and tidy. The staff were also nice. One thing to note is that they don't receive the forms that you sign on Zocdoc, so you will still have to sign forms when you come in.

First visit with Dr. Choy and she is marvelous. She was excited to get a look at the baby first thing and insisted I video the ultrasound for my husband. I left feeling very confident that I'm in good hands with a talented doctor and great person. Her nursing and front desk staff are wonderful too. I was the last patient of the day and was treated warmly and professionally. The nurse Brigid is fantastic.

Was cut-off by another patient which delayed my time with the doctor considerably. Doctor was friendly and attempted to recoup the loss but it was frustrating nonetheless. Fine for someone to check my vitals and send me on my way.
