provider was patient and able to see my child where others were not able to

This was a first time visit for me at this office. It was recommended by my Primary because I am having issues with my right arm after an infection I had. I was impressed how quickly I got in to see the doctor. I provided a brief summary on events that caused my injury and what I was experiencing currently to the nurse prior to seeing the doctor. The doctor came in asked me a few questions based on what I told to the nurse. Touched my injured area and asked me if that hurt and then said that he expects the pain that I have is a residual affect from the infection and expects that it will go away after rest but then ordered an MRI to see if there is anything else. I got the impression that he had his mind made up. I have had this pain for over 5 weeks so I don't believe that rest will make it go away. I believe the time I was with the doctor was all of 10 minutes. I was surprised by the small amount of time I was there with the him since he is a specialist. I am scheduled to go back to see him after my MRI and hope more attention will be provided with this follow up visit.

Dr. Chou did a great job on this minor procedure. Only local anesthetic was required and I would classify the procedure as pain-free. I was provided a prescription for Vicodin afterwards, but did not require anything beyond Tylenol the day of the operation.

He was very kind.

I saw Dr. Chou for carpal tunnel surgery and follow up. I am very please with the care I received from Dr. Chou, the staff at the surgical facility, and his office staff. everyone was super!

June 28, 2018

Dr. Chou is very knowledgeable and courteous. He is quick with his answers and does his procedures quickly. He is accurate with what may need to be done for my situation and gave me the options, allowing me to be in charge of what procedure to have done, explaining the reason why something should or should not be done.

Dr. Cho was friendly.
