Joyce Choe, MD MPH
Joyce Choe is a board certified ophthalmologist who practices in the Pacific Northwest. Prior to moving to Vancouver, WA, she worked in Southern California as a glaucoma specialist for 8 years. Here she had opportunity to develop long term relationships with patients and educated as many as were interested about the importance of nutrition and lifestyle for chronic disease. She tried to learn how to listen to her patients and to find the keys to their hearts, to help motivate them to make good decisions, with the hope that with improved health, they would be better able to hear God’s voice in other areas of their lives. By God’s grace, she saw patients make amazing transformations, with even brief encounters.
Since moving to the northwest, she is still actively educating by holding lectures, classes on nutrition and natural remedies, and helping with lifestyle programs at churches and lifestyle centers. She loves studying the Bible with others and considers it her greatest privilege. She is especially challenged by the simplicity of the gospel message, of how Christ worked when on this earth, and how it should apply to her life as a Christian physician who wishes to follow in His footsteps.
