There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

When I saw Dr. Choi on NOVEMBER 25, he ordered up refills for everything. Earlier this week, Weis pharmacy didn't have any for syringes. And you guys didn't respond to them for TWO days. I ever called LORIEN H BEISHLINE's office and SHE DID NOT CALL ME BACK, and I seriously doubt BRENDA COLLEY passed along my dire message as at that point, I was down to THREE syringes and and prescribed two injections of insulin a day. Alas, Weis got the refill in and they filled a script for two bottles of 70/30 insulin, of which I did not request, nor did I need. HOWEVER, if I take 43units both AM and PM, DO YOU THINK THAT"S ONLY TWO BOTTLES A MONTH? Both Brooke and Dustin at my appointment with Dr. Choi were kind and courteous. Let's see more people working as attentive as them at your office(s). THANKS. Shelly, at ---------, on the other hand, needs to be retrained as she didn't even acknowledge the proper date that I saw my doctor. She's the one who said Dr. Choi ORDERED NO REFILLS.

I love coming to him he helps a lot and can talk to him, he helped finding what is wrong finally.
Oct 28, 2015
Feel care provider does not do a thorough examination and relies on past bloodwork for decisions Pevious care provider was much more thorough
Oct 27, 2015
I really like Dr. Choi. He explains everything and makes recommendations that will help.
Oct 23, 2015
Dr. Choi is the best dr. I ever had.
Oct 21, 2015
The Dr. was very apologetic that he was running behind of the appt. time. He explained why and I understood.
Oct 6, 2015
Dr. Choi does spend time to listen & explain to me, so I do not mind my wait to see him - But the office is very busy & may need more dr.'s or health care providers to help assist.
Sep 24, 2015
It was a very back and forth conversation when it came to what to do and how I felt about certain treatments. He was willing to hear what I had to say and actually listened. When I didn't know about something, he pulled it up online and showed me and described it as we were looking at it. He found a pain medication that doesn't disagree with my stomach.
Sep 23, 2015
Dr. Choi has been very caring. He sent a message about my blood work the same day I had them done. I feel very confident in having him as my primary care physician
Sep 18, 2015
I like Dr. Choi's manner of taking time to listen to me, reviewing all my records, making recommendations, and, in general, that he treats me like an intelligent adult.
Sep 3, 2015
very good
Sep 3, 2015
I have already recommended Dr. Choi to other people.
Sep 2, 2015
Dr. Choi is a poor doctor he doesn't listen to his patients. He just goes by test results and that all. Or physical appearance.
Aug 12, 2015
This was my first visit with Dr Choi and I was very satisfied with our experience. It is always difficult on the very first visit to achieve a comfortable relationship with a new doctor. I feel very confident that as Dr Choi learns more about my health concerns and problems that he and I will develop a good rapport.
Aug 6, 2015
Very thorough, he spoke with me longer than any Dr. at Geisinger has in the past.
Aug 4, 2015
My experience with Dr. Chao, this time and in a previous visit, were exceptional.
Aug 3, 2015
Due to Dr. Tabchi leaving the practice, I will now have Dr. Choi as my PCP and I am very pleased that I am able to transition to a new PCP so easily.
Jul 27, 2015
I did recommend him
Jul 15, 2015
He does what he wants and does not listen to what I want.
June 10, 2015
Dr. Choi is very polite and concerned, compassionate about care and doesn't talk down to you. best Dr. I've had in Pottsville area!
June 8, 2015
If I see my doctor and not the PA this is a good rating. The PA would get straight 1's.
May 27, 2015
I was dissappointed on the physical exam. Last appointment he felt my neck and checked my eyes, ears, feet and a quick neurological exam this time he only listened to my heart and lungs. I was concerned about my thyroid and am on meds. That can cause lymphoma.and would have liked them checked.
May 21, 2015
Dr. Choi was very friendly and very helpful. I felt he really listened to me and made sure to do everything very thoroughly. He dedicated his attention to me and made me feel important.
May 20, 2015
first time seeing dr choi made me feel comfortable and was very positive.
May 14, 2015
