    Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiology, David Choe, MD, received his medical degree and completed his residency and fellowship programs from Loma Linda University Medical Center.

    I was always drawn to the sciences in school and excelled in that arena,” states Dr. Choe. “I enjoy being with people and interacting with them. Assisting others with compassion to help them is something rom which I receive great satisfaction – so going into medicine was a natural merger of my strengths.”

    While in medical school, Dr. Choe became intrigued with cardiology. “Cardiology incorporates several science disciplines – physics and chemistry, among others – all of which interest me,” explains Dr. Choe. “It’s a great field to learn and allows me to care for sick people, helping them regain a good lifestyle.”

    In working with patients, Dr. Choe sees medicine as a field where there needs to be equal participation between the patient and the physician. “Patients are better informed and have access to more information than they did years ago. I see my role as a coach – diagnosing and guiding patients, offering recommendations and options. Patients have the difficult part – that is to execute the plan! Diet and exercise changes are usually part of such a plan.”

    A long distance runner, Dr. Choe practices what he preaches! He also regularly donates his time working with the poor and needy in Guam, providing health care services.
