Dr. Chou is probably the most caring doctor that I have ever met. His sense of humor and ability to make me feel comfortable within minutes made me feel confident that everything would be ok. He did an excellent job explaining the necessary surgery, and even scheduled me for the following day. I am pleased with the results in my surgery and the care given throughout the entire process. I am so lucky to have met and had Dr. Chou as my surgeon.
