It was a blessing that I found Dr. Chow. I thought I needed a orthopedic surgeon for a cervical fusion/laminectomy. WRONG. I needed a neurosurgeon who could perform the minimal invasive surgery. I received a professional referral to Dr. Chow. I called his office on Monday before Thanksgiving and he saw me on Wednesday. I was in terrific pain and he juggled his personal schedule to do my surgery early on Frid. AM after Thanksgiving Day! I have referred family and friends to Dr Chow. All did great

Dr. Chow is friendly and professional. He took the time to make sure I knew exactly what was going on and what he was going to do. He is not knife happy and that is a big one! Great results! I have know at least 10 people that have had favorable results from his surgery.

Dr Chow is very knowledgeable in his area of expertise, and has always been very considerate and caring of any concerns I have. He has done two of my back surgeries over the course of 10 years. The most recent surgery was 2 months ago. I couldn't ask for a better Doctor and his office staff is always very polite and helpful.
