How was your experience with the doctor?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!

How was your experience with the doctor?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!

How was your experience with the doctor?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.

How was your experience with the doctor?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.

How was your experience with the doctor?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.

How was your experience with the doctor?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.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Choy is very no-nonsense, which I love in a doctor. She listened to my concerns and took them in stride, and worked with me to come up with a treatment plan that has worked wonderfully. I LOVE her no-nonsense attitude, but a friend who sees her found her a little cold. YMMV as always1

How was your experience with the doctor?This is my 2nd visit with Dr. Choy. I feel so comfortable with her and her staff. I came in with 2 concerns today, and she took time to listen and explain. She even apologized for the wait--which wasn't too long to me! I scheduled my appointment at the last minute, and it was also the end of the day. I expected to wait anyway. A mere 20 minutes in a clean, quiet, air-conditioned office is fine by me.

How was your experience with the doctor?the doctor used language that made me feel judged, which I doubt was intentional but it is the second time I’ve left feeling this way. She laughed in response to some things that I said, which I felt was extremely unprofessional. While I got what I needed from the check up , And I do think she is a fully capable doctor, I didn’t feel completely comfortable in the appointment which is unfortunate. In addition, she kept on asking me some of the same questions over and over again without explanation, I couldn’t tell if she just wasn’t listening, but this also made me feel sort of uncomfortable and ashamed. If she needs to repeat the question maybe she should say I just need to ask you again to be sure for protocol? Overall the experience left me feeling very uncomfortable

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Choy always seems to be in a hurry. Terrible bedside manner. Would not recommend to young single women as not sure 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.
