At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
He's simply the best! I'm so incredibly blessed to have found him. He made me feel as if my voice mattered when it came to my care plan. Great intellect and wonderful bedside manner. NWM is REALLY lucky to have him!
This is my first time dealing with cancer. I don't feel Dr Choi has given me options to move forward on. I've been scolded for not making appointments to see the Dr. yet I was never told how often I should be seen. The Doctor will ask if I have questions.. I have concerns yet I dont know what exactly to ask. I understand that cancer has its own mind and is unpredictable. I also believe doctors should understand patients have almost no clue on how to proceed once diagnosed. I understand patients should advocate for themselves. I think the position doctors are in, knowing somewhat of what their dealing with should be better relayed to the patient.
Dr. Choi is the best. I have a complicated problem and he takes time to discuss and explain everything with me. He is also kind and sympathetic. There is a great difference in dealing with an MD who also has a PhD. He wants to find out causes...not just treat symptoms and send you on your way. I also like that he communicates with my other physicians.
Dr. Choi is very thoughtful, and expresses any concerns he may have in understandable words. I would also like to commend Lucy, who took the blood sample I gave on the second floor. She too was thoughtful, and had a sense of humor as she went about her work. I feel that I received excellent care.
Dr. Choi was in charge of my mother's diagnosis. He (and the team) went down many paths, considered possibilities beyond the obvious, before arriving at a final diagnosis. Even though my mother's condition requires urgent care, Dr. Choi took the necessary time and extra steps to be thorough, and they were unafraid to switch course and arrive at a difference conclusion from what was originally thought. Consequently, we have complete confidence in him. What is more, Dr. Choi communicates well, listens attentively, and he has shown my mother consideration and concern, which means a lot, particularly when you are seriously ill, feeble, and receiving a diagnosis.
Dr. Choi is an expert in his field, he combines wisdom with lifestyle and creates a vision to improve my challenging skin problems. His patience, empathy and knowledge are so helpful and he has improved my quality of life by healing my skin conditions that no other dermatologist was able to accomplish. I am very grateful working with him. He is top in his field and creates proven results. Thank you Dr. Choi!
Dr Choi..after receiving his # from my Dr. Dr Choi called me personally and got me an appointment within a week. Our visit was great...he initiated a plan for my treatment and is my quarterback!!! He is very personable, reassuring, and calming!!! I'm so blessed to have him as my Dr.
From the first office visit I had with Dr J Choi I was completely at ease. I had an aggressive skin cancer and he was kind, .professional and so upbeat. He put me at ease as well as my family. It is going on 5 years and I still see him every 6 months, each visit has been like the first calm and upbeat. He's so much more than a doctor he's a part of my life.
