"I have suffered from chronic pain for many years and have always been treated with a simple “ hello, here’s your prescription- see you in a month” - simply not the case with Dr Choxi — each visit is a genuine compassionate visit. She takes time to discuss my treatments , make recommendations and always ensures i’m comfortable with my treatment plan. She has made herself available for emergency visits and always ensures me she’s only a phone call away. "

"She will listen to you and spend time with you. She gets to know her patients and rmbers small details about their lives. Most importantly she really tries to help and I'll try different options if one doesn't work. I never wait very long and staff is always pleasant. All the Drs in this office are amazing!"

"I had taken a serious fall in Sept of this year playing pickle ball. Since I have a Harrington Rod in my back, I feared I had a permanent injury. I had gone to the ER twice in pain and unable to walk without help from a walker. I didn’t get much relief there. I made an appt and was seen the next day by Dr Choxi. She went right to the problem and answered questions I had before I had even asked. She’s quick, bright, and best of all, SHE LISTENS. Problem and pain gone within days. I’d recommend her to anyone. She’s tops in my book."
