Creepy, volatile, perverted, manipulative, calculative, unethical, hypocritical Bryan Choi is a danger to female patients seeking help and therapy. Makes young female patients uncomfortable with increasingly sexual questions and suggestions, gets angry and aggressive when patients talk about personal issues that are not sexual or interesting to him. Unsafe choice for patients looking to trust a health care provider and not be judged, exploited, confidentiality violated, sexually harassed, or hospitalized And traumatized for Bryan CHOI’s own inferiority complexed treatment and overcompensating control over patients.

His own words to a patient seeking help in time of crisis in a psych ward "you’re going to end up a prostitute on skid row giving homeless men handjobs for crack.” Evidence: a) Bryan Choi has disclosed before he works at a clinic in skid row and disclosed unsavory details of prostitute cases he worked with and is oddly projecting his experience onto another female patient who has b)never expressed any desire for crack or prostitution nor was the conversation c) in any way inviting such an inappropriate and lewd sexual harassment from a licensed psychologist at a time patient verbally expressed duress and emotional distress.

Bryan CHOI is a creepy man who disclosed things about his life no one asks or cares to know and projects his insecurities about not being able to get his wife pregnant and having to pay $30,000 for his current baby. He disclosed he drinks a fifth of vodka a night at his desk, all while treating and judging people as addicts. Look in the mirror, patients also see your alcoholism in your bloated vacuous face. Bryan CHOI was reached for an apology and explanation of his crass and volatile behavior to patients but has unprofesionally mocked and insulted them. Unaccountable fraud who changes his medical online profiles names from Bryan to Bryant so to hide honest reviews- he is not very bright... He is going to lose his license and will not be able to work in the medical field.

Rebuttal: "Author rescinds previous statements, and states it is in NO WAY reflective of the doctors practice or treatment

AUTHOR: Rebuttal - (United States)

POSTED: Thursday, July 12, 2018

 "Author rescinds previous statements, and states it is in NO WAY reflective of the doctor’s practice or treatment. It was a biased opinion based rant made in distress during a time of many negative life events, and which has now been revised. Doctor Choi is an outstanding doctor and despite negative biases author had due to negative life events, they stand by the statement that Bryan Choi 110% improves quality of life for his patients and gives them the tools they need to make big changes in their life which is more reflective of his treatment than a negative rant that does not hold true to the quality of care he commits in his therapy. The level of professionalism and knowledge will greatly help patients who do not know where to begin in the insurmountable task of mental health.”

Stalked patient and contacted her to manipulate into seeing him for therapy, unwanted creepiness from gossipy middle aged womanly Bryan Choi

AUTHOR: Malpractice - (United States)

POSTED: Wednesday, May 23, 2018

He stalked a patient prior to contacting her to manipulate her to come to his private practice and convinced her to leave a caring new female therapist, based on his history with patient, however patient has hindsight now that Bryan Choi had stalked patient who was unaware, she recalls noticing his colleague from APAIT Dan Fields at POT bar in Korea town which turned out to be located directly across the street from Dan fields private practice with Bryan CHOI. Patient recalls noticing it strange to see a Doctor at a bar. Shortly after, patient was contacted by Dan fields partner Bryan CHOI and he told her he had seen her somewhere and thought of her and wanted to meet for therapy again, and patient was undergoing crisis and was vulnerable and he exploited her situation and convinced her it was a sign instead of reality- a creepy stalker older man in a position of authority and profession manipulating a mental patient who is much younger and was naive which he was aware of and fully exploited.

He also stalks his patients and their significant others on social media outside of the office, and gets weirdly jealous and possessive of patients who trust him to simply do his job as a therapist, not anything else which he seemed weirdly disgustingly entitled to, and has an inferiority complex of patients have white boyfriends, and will convince patients to end relationships by feeding them poison and convincing patients of things completely untrue that he has no expertise to weigh in on yet convinces young vulnerable patients to do what he wants, and knows what toxic lies to feed mental patients to provoke certain thoughts about others he has never even met and is oddly obsessed over. These people he is obsessed over creepily are smarter and better than him by miles and are able to see true his petty weak and ugly obfuscation of truth and now his true colors have been revealed by himself.

If you are a young attractive (he will project his weird creepy unwanted feelings into you and damage your trust and mental health plans) female patient never ever allow Bryan CHOI to manipulate you into seeing him for therapy- he is temperamental, emotionally narcissistic, egotistical and horrible as a person and psychologist but knows how to get people their guard down. That guard was up for a reason and evil scum like Bryan Choi shows why guards must always be up. As you can see I am an intelligent and articulate individual with wits however anyone who has suffered depression or sought help in mental health knows anyone can suffer lapses in their judgement and mental health, and Bryan Choi and corrupt mental health practitioners like him excel at crazy making tactics and use their authority misguidedly (keep in mind he sexually harassed and tried to sabotage young naive patients half his age and then tries to put blame on them despite the circumstances.. signs of a weak and very small individual) for the mistreatment of patients. Unaccountable fraud who changes his medical online profiles names from Bryan to Bryant so to hide honest reviews- he is not very bright... He is going to lose his license and will not be able to work in the medical field.


Explanation of his bizarre creepiness from an Expat's excerpt: "If Korea's culture and society didn't make it tough enough - Local guys (in general) don't want it to happen either. They'll shame her into not dating you. Note that the prettier she is - the more guys will shame her. Heck one friend of mine told me that guys would straight up walk to her and tell her how ashamed she should be! He was dating a flight attendant and this happened in the Seoul subway. "Why is this?" They're afraid that you'll "take their women" (as if women belong to someone.) In reality they're jealous and insecure. Yes - I'll say it again: jealous and insecure. They're jealous because their society holds them back from dating Korean girls the way they genuinely want. Expats on the other hand don't have to deal with their society as much. Local guys (like local women) have obligations too and envy expats because they don't. They're insecure because expats are a variable they can't control. Not only that but in the hierarchy of things they subconsciously see 'Western men' as being slotted above them. Personally I think this is stupid but I didn't make up the society or their points of view. Note: Korean guys reading this - don't confuse the message with the messenger. I'm just calling it as it is. I also know that you think that most Western men look down on you (and all this adds to the resentment.) Then again I'm open to debate as to what you think is going on.”
