I consulted with Doctor Chiu about a scar I had from an emergency abdominal surgery. I trusted him from the very first meeting -- he was incredibly patient and listened to my concerns. He explained my options and made sure I felt comfortable before moving forward. I will always have some sort of scar, but it's much thinner now. Overall, I am happy with the results. My only negatives were the clinic fees (could be more of a complaint about my insurance coverage) and wait time for initial consult

Dr Chiu was my surgeon for breast reduction. From the first visit, he was both professional and caring. His positive attitude and encouragement reaffirmed a decision that was difficult for me to make. I expected to have much more discomfort (read too many blogs), but I was pleasantly surprised at the lack of pain. He explained every step of the way and was receptive to questions. I can not imagine a more positive experience.

Doctor Chiu operated on me twice in October/November 2018. He performed a Folded Forehead Flap/Nose reconstruction procedure on me. It was done due to the fact that a previous skin graft failed that had been done by a different dermatologist. Doctor Chiu has treated me with a great deal of kindness, compassion and respect. He is an excellent surgeon. He truly cares about his patient. He is very respectful towards the members of his medical team, the nurses and his office staff.

We were so fortunate to have been recommended to Dr Chiu. He is an excellent surgeon and all around nice man. He scheduled my husband's unexpected surgery quickly even though he had to leave for a famity reunion. Talented and compassionate. Taking time after the surgery to show me pictures and explain what he had done. Thank you Dr Chiu.
