ON A PERSONAL NOTE…
A native of Tacoma, WA, Dr. Choe and his wife chose Virginia Beach following his training, to start his practice and raise a family. Although neither Dr. Choe nor his wife Rachel had family here, they felt that this area, with its strong ethical influence and inherent beauty, offered an environment well suited to raising a family and building strong community ties.
Dr. Choe and his wife enjoy community involvement, serving on boards of civic organizations as well as various church activities. He serves on a team of physicians, nurses and other helpers who participate in a yearly medical mission to serve the poor in Central and South America, Asia and Europe treating adults and children with birth defects other serious reconstructive problems.
