About the Provider

Joseph Choi, MD, is a general neurologist affiliated with MedStar Washington Hospital Center and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Dr. Choi sees patients for all neurologic conditions and has a special interest in diagnosing and treating complicated neuromuscular disease. Dr. Choi uses a variety of diagnostic procedures, including EMG nerve conduction studies and ultrasound to diagnose neuromuscular disease.

His clinical and research interest is neuromuscular disease, including ALS, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, inflammatory myopathy, and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP).

As a neurologist practicing in an academic setting, Dr. Choi is able to provide tailored treatment plans to each of his patients and therefore more specialized care. Dr. Choi is passionate about offering patient-centered, multidisciplinary care. He is part of a specialized clinic at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital dedicated to treating patients who have been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and muscular dystrophy. This clinic is funded and supported by both the ALS Association and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Here, patients can see a neurologist, pulmonologist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist, nutritionist, geneticist, and MDA representative all in one day.

Dr. Choi received his medical degree from George Washington University School of Medicine, where he stayed to complete his internship in internal medicine. He then joined MedStar Georgetown University Hospital for a three-year residency in neurology, before completing a specialty fellowship in neuromuscular disease with the Harvard Partners Program.

Philosophy of Care
“My goal in patient care is to be patient-focused in every aspect. I believe in communicating clearly with my patients so that they have a clear idea of what’s going on and leave our consultations feeling informed and confident. It’s important to me that my patients feel that I’m guiding them throughout the diagnostic and treatment process and that they don’t feel alone.”
