Dr. Chow is very detail oriented. She treats the whole patient.
Milwaukee, WI |
She is so knowledgeable and takes time to discuss results and howI can improve. Makes me feel "in control" of my health improvement. I have recommended her to both family and friends.
Westmont, IL |
Dr. Chow takes the time to review the lab work in front of me then explains the reason why the medication change is being done in relation to the lab work. Does not rush the visit yet I know she is very busy. She takes the time to get to know me personally and very conscientious.
Villa Park, IL |
Very friendly staff and Dr. Chow was very through will explaining my treatment options and plans. I was happy to have such a caring doctor.
Naperville, IL |
Very through and friendly. I was very surprised by the amount of information given about my condition that I was not aware of. Would definitely recommend Dr. Chow to anyone struggling with kidney disease.
Oak Brook, IL |
Dr. Chow is very caring and knowledge doctor. She is very thorough and takes the time that is needed. The staff is also great!
Chicago, IL |
I was very dissatisfied with Dr. Chow, she had no sympathy on my diagnosis and didn't offer any solutions. In addition the physicians she works with have different approaches on how to treat my symptoms. Her, Dr. Elahi and Dr. Potempa all had different recommendations on how to treat me. Ho can that be possible all 3 doctors who work together can come up with a common solution.
