I had an acute injury to my thumb. I was able to get a same day appointment and get a custom made splint for my thumb during the visit. Dr Chou showed me my Xrays and was prompt even though I was added into his full schedule.

September 24, 2019

This is the first time I've seen Dr. Chou, although I have seen another doctor in this practice. I've never had a bad experience with any UPMC provider.

September 19, 2019

Very fast and efficient. In and out.

September 17, 2019

I felt quite satisfied with attention and care received and will be continuing with additional treatment.

September 13, 2019

initial visit with this specialist, would have liked more time and more explanation, however to be fair he has ordered other tests so maybe more communications will be provided once those results take place so I will reserve judgement till then.
