Dr. Chow had informed himself of my medical history before my visit. I have seen the top doctors in the country at M. D. Anderson # 1 Cancer hospital in the world and Doctor Chow ranks among the best in the country with his knowledge, compassion, and skills. Columbia, SC is blessed to have such a fine doctor.

I have been to Dr. Chow's office twice for surgery. Even though I was scared about the procedures, Dr. Chow and his staff immediately put me at ease. He worked me in the morning he was leaving to fulfill a military duty. Dr. Chow is very caring and I will not go to anyone else. I actually have to see him next week for a bump on my arm that has to be removed. There are numerous surgeons closer to my house but I always request to see Dr. Chow! He's the best!!
