Encouraged by friends to seek relief from my constant knee pain, I was referred to Dr. Stephen Chow. He was clear and to the point that knee replacement was indicated as there was no cartilage left. I was told that he was a good surgeon by several acquaintances including a former nurse. His staff worked with me to get all the approvals. April 5th he replaced the knee. A day later I was standing in the hospital hallway marveling that there was no pain in the knee. Thank you Dr. Chow.

Any one going here realy needs a strong ability to put up with arrogance. This guy thinks he is God's gift to medicine. And don't even think about asking questions.

Extremely unprofessional. Very disappointed with my visit with him and that I have to pay him for the way he treated me. Rude and would interrupt everytime I said something, by the end I just shut up and nodded my head cause that's clearly what he wanted and I was just ready to get out of there. I'm an RN and have been around many doctors and have never had an encounter like this one. Also my first review I've ever made. Will not be recommending him to anyone.

Dr. Chow is a breath of fresh air! He thoroughly described the procedure and what my responsibility would be to achieve the best results. This included things I didn't necessarily want to hear (like losing weight and exercising), but they were honest comments made to provide me with better health. I listened, am doing the work, and feel great! Research, health professionals and former patients have informed me that Dr. Chow is the best surgeon in the High Desert. I absolutely agree!

A little rough around the edges but hes a great Dr.. Fixed me up with a hip replacement at the tender age of 35. No nonsense kind of guy. If you want to hear it like it is, go to him....if you want to be babied, find a different Dr. I appreciated the no nonsense approach. He found the problem and fixed it!
in Apple Valley, CA |
I consider Dr. Chow to be one of the best surgeons I have ever had. Whenever I have the chance to brag about him, I do. If you are looking for a great surgeon, Dr. Chow is one you should choose.
