She has a very rude bedside manner. She actually told me that I have fibromyalgia and am going to have pain. Deal with it!. Needless to say I left feeling terrible and more stressful than before I got to the office. She offered me nothing in the way of treatment for my fibromyalgia. I tell everyone never select her as your doctor at this office.

Dr Chou and her staff was really nice. I saw her for some pain I was having in my left knee. After she gave me an injection I haven't had any issues with my knee.
