The Patients' Choice Award is given to doctors who consistently receive glowing reviews for their work and devotion to excellent patient care. In 2013 alone, more than 200,000 patients across America provided reviews and feedback regarding their personal treatment and experiences with their doctors. While physicians often receive positive feedback, only a select few consistently receive high reviews.
Dr. Choi scored near-perfect ratings in the categories of bedside manner, doctor-patient interaction, accurate diagnosis, followup care, ease of appointment, office staff courtesy, and overall patient opinion. Of the 830,000 doctors currently practicing in the U.S., only a select few received the Patients’ Choice Award in 2013. In fact, this is the fourth year in which Dr. Choi has received this coveted award. Recently, he was also awarded recognition in the Castle Connoly’s Top Doctors (2012) and Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2010-2012).
“It is extremely gratifying to know that what I do every day is appreciated by my patients” said Dr. Choi. He said, “I strive to deliver the best possible medical care. I feel honored to know that my patients hold me in such high esteem."
