the experience I had in my visit was that I thought the dr was not very attentive to what I wanted to say. He interrupted me a lot while I was speaking, I didn't have a chance to explain all of my health concerns. The visit with the actual doctor was approximately 3 minutes total. I thought I would have had more time to speak with him.

From check in to scheduling the next appt.. everything went smoothly and efficently.

Dr. Chou did a great job. It was my first visit and it went well.

September 27, 2016

This doctor was recommended to us by Dr. James Bradley, who has performed multiple surgeries for our family and whose advice we trust. This doctor possesses an exceptionally calming demeanor and listens calmly to the patient concerns. His PA is to be commended - this person squeezed us in due to the serious nature of injury. We are very grateful and confident in level of care. This doctor clearly demonstrated care and concern for the individual patient. He is a calming presence, a patient listener - skills sorely needed in medicine today. I am grateful for Dr. Chou's PA, and his time with my child. I highly recommend him.

very good

July 14, 2016

This was my first visit with Dr. Chou. I was extremely pleased with his professionalism, care and honesty regarding the problem with my arthritic hand.

July 07, 2016

Dr. Chou is an excellent surgeon who I would highly recommend. He is very professional with a friendly demeanor. He is patient and will take whatever time you need to thoroughly answer your questions.

very quick and knowledgable

June 17, 2016

This provider performed surgery on my hand. Most of these questions are irrelevant. You need a separate survey for such incidents. This is the second surgery he's done, once on my other hand. I am very pleased with the results, and also with him. I would definitely recommend him to others.

June 07, 2016

Nurse/assistant was very pleasant and professional. Dr. Chow appeared to be rushed, annoyed. Just about zero bedside manner. I felt as if I was just another number/speed bump in his day.
