"I have been a customer of Dr. Choi for about 13 years now and am completely satisfied with everything he has done keeping our family of furry friends, both dogs and cats, together and thriving. He has helped both with finding new companions and finding homes for kittens that were born feral but now have loving homes. With one of our dogs he did an amazing job of replacing ligaments in both rear legs, allowing her to be just as mobile as ever. As well as being skilled at his craft he also has a great sense of humor and an understanding of the grief that comes when one of our loved ones time is up. There's a good reason I don't shop around for other vets. "

"We have been going to Dr. Choi for over 3 years. He is both knowledgeable and compassionate. We have an older dog with a chronic condition who is being well managed under Dr. Choi's care. My husband and I feel comfortable and at ease every time we go in for a vet visit."
