My dad was admitted by Dr. Chow on February 23and stayed in the hospital until March 1, Dr. Chow did not visit my dad at all during 7 days even we have repeated requests. I don't know about his skills, I do know he does not care for his patient.
in Santa Clara, CA |
Not interested in patient care. Very distant person. Seen in initial consultation, then defer further care to NP, doing many fancy tests with no results ever discussed, and refer out to another cardiologist. Called about diagnosis, office requested return appointment (while being referred out, with blank previous visitnon-sense!), and doctor would not return call original referring physician.
