I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Choe! He is friendly, patient, knowledgeable and a very talented man in his field. By the time I came to him my ears were in a bad state and I needed to have multiple ear surgeries in order to get me back on track. He went out of his way to show me the many issues going on in my ears and the exact ways in which he'd go about fixing them. He did this in a calm and patient manner, taking as much time with me as I needed in order to understand what was going on. No question was too big or small, no concern too trivial. I saw him many times and if he was ever having a bad day, it never showed. His demeanor was always consistently upbeat. I think of him often and am grateful to have met such a wonderful doctor who is so deeply in touch with his sense of humanity.

This guy simple rocks. I cannot go over details because he will know who I am. But all I can say I am back to life I can go to college without the fear of not understanding anything in class. I'm confident to talk to girls anywhere. i have no words to say how he changed my life. HE IS TRULY AMAZING.

I myself was seen by different specialist over the last 8 months. Dr. Choe is a true professional listens to what you have to say follows through with notes for himself and spends plenty of QUALITY time with you. Dr. Choe is one who also provides options and lets you join in with his thoughts.Dr. Choe appears to be focused and and well seasoned within his practice.

Dr. Choe removed my cholesteatoma and rebuilt my hearing bones one month ago at NYEE. Now I can answer the phone with that ear. Today at the post-op visit he told me that I can go swimming. That's fantastic. I read so many unsuccessful stories online before the surgery so it really surprise me that Dr. Choe made the whole process so smoothly.
