As a result of the compassionate care we deliver, we develop lasting relationships with our patients. Many times we hear from our patients about how Dr. Maria Choy and the staff at Central Jersey Neurological Institute have helped them. For those of you we hear from, we thank you for passing along your kind words.
Here are some of our favorites:
About five years ago, I had a bulging disk at C3, confirmed by MRI. The pain was unbearable, and my left arm was practically paralyzed. My doctor was ready to schedule surgery. My mom suggested that before I go that route, I should try visiting her acupuncturist. I asked her what kind of voodoo she was trying to loop me into, but eventually, I acquiesced and went to visit Maria Choy, MD.
Dr. Choy led me through her office, decorated with all kinds of posters and body maps, all in Chinese, and I'm like, Lord, what the heck am I doing here. But then you look on the wall and you see a huge certificate-Boston University-Department of Neuroscience-Dr. Maria Choy. So I felt a little better. It's silly how things that are familiar can make you feel better- but seeing that there was "conventional" science involved somehow helped.
We talked for a while, and Dr. Choy was unbelievably patient with my neurotic nonsense, answering all of my questions and explaining how we would proceed. Then she put me in a dark room where I laid down, she put on some nice music, and started tapping needles into my skin. You barely feel it. I laid there for about 20 minutes, and she came back to take them out. I went 3 times a week the first month, 2 times a week the second month and once a week the third month (to "charge the batteries" as she put it).
Utterly and completely cured, and no problems since.
All the props in the world to acupuncture and Dr. Choy!
Dr. Choy is an excellent Dr. In my case she performed miracles. I am now completely pain free on my left side after months of agony. My allergies have also subsided. God Bless Dr.Choy
Dr. Choy is the first doctor that truly listens to what is bothering you. I went in with several different problem areas and she is helping to resolve all of them. And not in a rush to get me in and out of her office like others. On time and still makes time to listen to everything I have to say.

As a retired medical administrator in Monmouth County, I recognize a quality doctor. As a patient, I have first hand experience. Dr. Choy is much more than a great doctor, she is a true physician-healer. She has a top education from schools in the USA and has pursued learning and experience to the utmost, even studying acupuncture with the best in China! She asks the right questions and LISTENS. She formulated a personal plan of healing for each patient and regularly follows-up. She is wonderful and amazing!
