  • Biography



    During college, Dr. Choi had first-hand experience working in a free medical clinic and this coupled with her strong interest in science confirmed her decision to pursue a career in medicine. This decision came easily as her goal was to focus on her patients and provide the highest quality health care possible.

    Dr. Choi enjoys her profession as a physician as it allows her the opportunity to provide in-depth care for her adult patients. She chose to pursue a specialty in endocrinology as she finds it intriguing to identify the best treatments for common disorders, such as diabetes and thyroid disease, and research ways to manage rare hormone-related disorders.

    As Dr. Choi states it best, “I appreciate the opportunity I have to learn from my patients on a daily basis. I believe in partnering with my patients to provide the best care possible.” Developing relationships with her patients and providing education are the highlights of her profession. It bring Dr. Choi back to her goal of serving as an advocate for her patients and supporting them through their life-long journey toward good health.

    A graduate of University of California Irvine medical school, Dr. Choi completed her internal medicine residency at Cedars-Sinai and her fellowship in endocrinology, diabetes & metabolism at City of Hope/Harbor-UCLA.

    Having lived in Korea, Mexico City and the United States, Dr. Choi is fluent in Korean and Spanish. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, going to concerts and movies, and visiting new places in her time outside of work.

    very competent dr and staff
    I recommended my former next door neighbor to Dr. Choi and the last time that I spoke with her she was very pleased with her and glad she changed from her former endocrinologist to Dr. Choi.
    Dr Choi is great. I never feel rushed. She explains everything fully.
    I really thought that Dr. Choi was exceptional! She was prompt, well informed of my test results and really listened and responded to my concerns. She is very personable and I felt that she was genuinely concerned about my health.
    Dr Choi is one of the best physicians I have ever met. I am a registered nurse at Hoag for 18 years and I know a lot of doctors. Dr Choi is compassionate. Takes plenty of time to listen then explain her rational for treatment. Her staff is friendly and efficient. I love her and her staff.
