I had a sore heel so I went to see Dr. Chiu through the recommendation of a friend. I could not have been more pleased. She diagnosed me with plantar fasciitis and after 3 visits my pain had gone from an 8 to a 2. She was very precise in the telling me what to do, etc. She is a sweet and caring doctor and she has a very caring and friendly staff. I have already referred her to someone.

I have been to Dr. Chiu's office three times. She is the most caring, experienced podiatrist I have ever found. Besides being so knowledgeable, I appreciate her conservatism. Dr. Chiu isn't about highly invasive treatments, but is more prevention motivated. Great job Dr. Chiu... and your office staff is super too!

I was so pleased with Dr. Chiu. She took the time to personally X-ray the foot that was causing me pain and then spent over a half hour with me explaining the possible causes and treatments. Down to earth and a breath of fresh air in a time when we seldom even get to meet with an actual physician. Thank you Dr. Chiu

I saw Dr Chiu today for footbeds due to arch and leg and back pain. She listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions. She explained how my feet also caused also my neck and shoulder pain. She did a thorough assessment and I was very impressed. She was very personable and helpful as was her staff.

I needed to see a doctor today to diagnose an ongoing ankle issue, called several doctors in the Sarasota area, and was being told 2-3 weeks for an appt. Judi at Sarasota Foot and Ankle Center was willing to hear me out on the phone and said if I could be in at 11 AM and didn't mind waiting, she could work me into the busy schedule today. After a short wait, I met with Dr. Chiu. She was fabulous, properly diagnosed my situation and offer suggestions to deal with the pain. Highly recommend.

This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had at a Dr's office. I went in with complaint of foot pain, CT scan (no report) and X-ray. I was charged for an office visit yet received absolutely no care. In fact, she did not even look at my foot, let alone examine it, stating she could do nothing for me until she could read the CT scan report.

Very informative, knowledgeable and concerned. Takes the time to explain, educate and offer options. Love the waiting room....interesting, fun and engaging! Staff is extremely helpful.....keeping you up to date when your appt. is running over time because of an unscheduled procedure with a prior patient and even offering you the option to see an alternative Dr. if you decide to do that....your choice.

Dr. Chiu put me at ease and thoroughly explained her diagnosis and treatment plan. She made certain that I had realistic expectations about what outcome to expect. Her hands-on treatment immediately gave me relief from long-existing pain.

My experience was impressive from my first phone call, the attentive matter to an immediate appointment, welcoming greeting and Dr. Chui's gentleness. She was direct with a very clear explanation and making sure I understood, as well as answering all my questions and concerns. Most of all, I was relieved of my pain!

Dr. Chou is professional and knowledgeable about her field. She posses good questions and provides sound information to educate the patient. She also provides guidance as to proper care of the foot regarding a particular condition. Surgery is not her first answer but rather she explores appropriate alternatives. After seeing several doctors regarding plantar fasciitis, Dr. Chiu was the one that truly helped provide relief for my condition. I would return again.
