About me

When Shelly Whiteman was originally diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, her local doctor prescribed medication but felt that a cardiac ablation was needed. Two years after the procedure, she still suffered from shortness of breath but her doctor felt he was unable to correct the issue.

After seeing a pulmonologist, it was determined her condition was a result of the unsuccessful ablation which caused a narrowing of the valve between the lower right heart chamber and the lung arteries, known as pulmonary vein stenosis. Ms. Whiteman reached out to UF Health and was referred to Interventional Cardiologist, Calvin Choi, MD, who ordered testing which revealed she had multivessel coronary artery disease in which at least two or three of the coronary arteries are partially or fully blocked. 

Dr. Choi is an expert in the management and treatment of complex coronary artery and structural heart diseases and today Shelly Whiteman is back to enjoying her active lifestyle with the peace of mind that she was given a second chance.

I am an Associate Professor of Medicine in the University of Florida Division of Cardiovascular Medicine. I am the Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at UF Health, JAX.

My clinical expertise is in percutaneous management of complex coronary artery and structural heart diseases. I have extensive experience in coronary chronic total occlusion and TAVR, TMVR, MitraClip, mitral commissurotomy, paravalvular leak closure, patent foramen ovale closure, atrial septal defect closure, ventricular septal defect closure, alcohol septal ablation and left atrial appendage occlusion.

I earned my undergraduate degrees in electrical engineering and biology, along with my medical degree, from the University of Maryland. Additionally, I obtained a master’s in physiology from Georgetown University and a master’s in healthcare administration from the University of Florida. I completed a research fellowship at the National Institutes of Health. I also completed an internship and residency in internal medicine, followed by cardiology and interventional cardiology fellowships, at the University of Florida.

I am a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions. I have received numerous teaching and clinical service awards from the UF Department of Medicine and the UF College of Medicine. I am bi-lingual in English and Korean.
