About Charles H. Choe, MD

Charlie Choe, MD, is a board-certified endocrinologist. He also holds an active Endocrine Certification in Neck Ultrasound from the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists for performing ultrasound and ultrasound-guided biopsies for patients with thyroid nodules and cancer.

Dr. Choe sees patients for a variety of endocrine conditions, including thyroid disorders, diabetes, parathyroid and calcium disorders, osteoporosis and bone disease, pituitary disorders and adrenal gland disorders. He has a particular interest in patients with complex thyroid cancer, working closely with surgery, radiology, pathology, and oncology teams in a multidisciplinary manner.

"There's never been a day where I regret my decision to practice endocrinology. There is so much that is changing in this field, and I love that I am in this academic environment where I can provide up-to-date and evidence-based care. I hope this passion comes through when I interact with my patients, staff, and students."

As an associate professor of medicine at UC San Diego School of Medicine, Dr. Choe is actively involved in training medical students, residents, and fellows in the field of endocrinology.

Dr. Choe completed his fellowship and medical residency training at UC San Diego School of Medicine and earned his medical degree from Columbia University in New York.
