My son was seen for a broken hand which required surgery. Dr. Chou accommodated a quick appointment from an ER referral, scheduled surgery quickly, was very explanatory of the procedure and expectations, included my son in the decision ion making and teaching and made all of us feel very confident with his recommendations and abilities.

My care with Franklin Chou's office and staff were very good, this was the first time I had seen Dr. Chou, I have seen another Dr. In the same office as him, 6 years ago. When I called Dr.Hasselman's office they referred me to Dr. Chou's office for my thumb.
