Authorization No. 115586-0W
Please be advised that, effective November 25, 2009, the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct, issued a Modification Order (BPMC No. 05-196) regarding the medical license of Jae Hong Choi, M.D., according to which Dr. Choi must never register or activate his license to practice medicine in the State of New York. Previously, by BPMC Order No. 05-196 imposed on September 21, 2005, Dr. Choi's license to practice medicine was suspended for two months through November 21, 2005, after which his license was limited to practicing medicine in a facility licensed pursuant to New York State Public Health Law Article 28. No current business address is available for Dr. Choi.
Effective from September 21, 2005 through November 21, 2005, and again on November 25, 2009, Dr. Choi was and is precluded from rendering medical treatment and care to individuals who have suffered work-related injuries or illnesses. Medical reports submitted by Dr. Choi for treatment or examinations rendered prior to November 25, 2009, except from September 21, 2005 through November 21, 2005, are valid, but are invalid for any treatment or examinations rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Choi regarding treatment or examinations he rendered prior to November 25, 2009, but not from September 21, 2005, through November 21, 2005, should not be denied due to the inactive status of his license.
Any questions regarding this matter should be referred to the Office of General Counsel at (518) 486-9564.
