    Dr. Mow, besides being an excellent orthopedic surgeon, is friendly and accessible. He is easy to talk to and listens to a patient's concerns. He has good rapport with his patients. I wouldn't want any other orthopedic doctor. His staff are friendly, courteous, and willing to work with a patient if a problem in scheduling arises. I'm so glad that he has now opened an office in Los Gatos, so I won't have to drive all the way to Sunnyvale.

    The care and professional treatment received from Dr. Mow and his entire staff extraordinary and truly something that should be mimicked across the board. I had right and left knee replacements done by Dr. Mow and each time (7 years apart) the healing process was so less difficult because of how he and his staff and team of doctors followed up with me. Dr. Mow was concerned about the treatment I was receiving from my primary physician and helped me in getting better treatment without compromise!
