If we had to pick three or four words to describe our doctors, we would say they are well-educated, friendly, and caring. While they all have excellent educations, they take special pride in explaining your pet's health in terms YOU can understand.

Dr. Young Choi - Owner:

Communication is Key

I believe that one of my most important duties as a veterinarian is to address all my clients' concerns and questions to the best of my ability.  It's important to me to take my time to communicate with each and every one of my clients, because I want them to leave with a good understanding of their pets' issues and options.  This way, they can make informed decisions, which is better for the pets AND the clients. 

Keeping our clients and their pets happy

It makes me happy when I see my clients' concerns and fears dissipate.  Being a true general practice, being able to offer orthopedics, doing exotics work, behavioral pharmacology, all these things help our clients.  When we offer a greater variety of services, do a good  job at the services we offer, treat our clients with respect and our patients with the utmost of care, that's what gets me excited about being a veterinarian.

Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine:  Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea, 2000

Community Focus

I chose this profession because being able to offer something of value to the community was important to me.  I'm proud to be able to make a living at a job that I enjoy, and that helps people and animals live better lives.

"Young has been wonderful to work with, and our clients seem to really like him.  His focus on client happiness, quality of care, and giving back to the community has made him a great addition to our team." ~ Dr. Gary Hurlbut.

"Dr. Choi, he takes his time with both the people and patients, he always has a smile and great bedside manner, and this eagerness to continue to learn new things.  He is an inspiration to us, and a joy to work with.  He's even nice to the aggressive dogs!  We're sure you'll love him too!" ~ Pacifica Pet Hospital Staff.
