Specialties

Dr. Michael S Choi has the following 2 specialties

  • Bariatric Medicine

    Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity. Bariatric specialists are trained in medically supervised weight loss and the management of obesity as a chronic condition. These specialists are skilled in various disciplines that help patients lose weight and obtain optimal health.
    The field encompasses dieting, exercise and behavioral therapy, anti-obesity medication, pharmacotherapy and surgery. Bariatric specialists might be from surgical backgrounds and perform obesity-related operations or they might be nutrition and hormone focused, prescribing diet and exercise plans as well as weight loss medications.
    Patients defined as obese or having unhealthy Body Mass Indices (BMI) have much greater risk of heart disease, diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea, hypertension, many types of cancer and chronic musculoskeletal problems.
    One subspecialty of bariatrics is the focus on the correlation between obesity and mortality.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Does not even keep u records right.... does not follow up with the patient in months!!!....I only thank God that it wasn't worse... not professional this guy.

So far so good

I just did my gastric sleeve with Dr. Choi and so far I don't have any problem, he was very warm and friendly on the consultation and he took his time to explain me the process, I'm very happy with Dr. Choi, I'll recommend him very highly.

Should not be practicing

Dr choi is an incompetent Dr. He blames patients. Yelling at me on the phone because I was in terrible pain. The only thing I lost was time from my life and my work. Don't let him touch you.
