I agree with the previous comment. He is the gold standard in every way. I had a severely infected horse bite, and every hand surgeon I approached turned me away. An infected horse bite was too much for them, but not for Dr. David T W Chiu. He took my case and my heart as well. He is a doctor with extraordinary skill and a man of great integrity and kindness. He developed microsurgery techniques that saved many hands and earned global acclaim, but he is also a gentle healer. The best!

Dr.Chiu is THE GOLD STANDARD of medicine. He listens, deliberates, and then advises. Dr. Chiu is ethical beyond all measure. He will NOT talk anyone into surgery if it is not worth the risk. He explains in detail what the odds are that you can improve your particular problem. He is interested in your well being. Dr. Chiu is smart as a whip, and has a sense of humor! In short, ifbyou sre lucky enough to be his patient, you have won the PowerBall for lucky patients! Ten Gold Stars! MM
