Dr. Joseph Kou performed two foot surgeries on me. He is the most wonderful surgeon! He gave me a complete picture of what to expect and did a great job. He is personable, kind and altogether brilliant. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend him. I am just sorry that I did not get around to writing this review sooner.
