I travel close to 3 hours for an appointment and it is truly worth the time because I know I am seeing the best of the best doctors and feel confident in their services.

I love having Dr Chou as my Doctor. Of course, I would rather listen to him play piano, or play a pick up basketball game with him. Such a talented man. I believe in him!

Dr Franklin Chou is an excellent surgeon. I have had multiple hand surgeries performed by him and each time his professionalism, care, and treatment were excellent. I have referred a friend to him recently and will continue to fo this if another occasion arises. office staff is very professional and also pleasant. Thank you.

I believe that Chou could have spent a bit more time in the office with me during the visits and procedures...
