I would certainly recommend Dr. Chou. I find his efficiency in presenting a diagnosis and offering a remedy very helpful. I was in an out of the office in just a few minutes and feeling much better. It was all good.

July 21, 2015

Dr Franklin Chou was prompt, sure of himself and therefore confidence building, and came to diagnosis and treatment that was extremely helpful and relatively painless.

July 16, 2015

It was a very good experience.

June 30, 2015

I would not trust any other orthopedic surgeon with my complex case. Dr. Chou gave me back the function I lost, and I owe everything to him!

June 12, 2015

I've only seen him once but I was very satisfied with the care I received.

June 11, 2015

Overall I had a good experience. The provider answered any questions I had.

June 09, 2015

The provider was straight to the point. I felt I was given the choices and the results of each choice so I could make an educated decision about my treatment.

June 09, 2015

he seemed very nice but spent less than ten minutes with me and ordered a test at another provider. he didn't go over my X-rays and I got the results myself on and not sure what it means. I go back to him after my tests at another provider. I will decide then if I will stay with three rivers orthopedic then.
