Dr. Chi performed surgery on my right thumb for “trigger finger”. The surgery and recovery were perfect. I have recommended a friend who has a similar problem to her. She did an outstanding job on my right thumb. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Chi did surgery on my left hand. I had a compression fracture of my left shoulder and I made her aware of that fact. I can’t say enough good about how careful Dr. Chi and the hospital staff were not to injure that shoulder of mine even more than it already was while doing my surgery on that hand. She is very conscientious, a very excellent hand surgeon and I would highly recommend her.

She was amazing. gentle and thorough. I received the referral and had an appointment a week later. Dr Chi examined my hand and took x-rays. Analyzed what needed to be done. Arranged the surgery with my hmo. 2 weeks later had the surgery. The surgery center was clean, efficient and the doctor was on time. in and out in an hour. could already use my hand with less pain after a day and almost have all my movement and strength back after 2.5 weeks. Almost no scar.

I hand De Quervain's release surgery by Dr Chi. She was very professional and thorough explaining the surgery and physical therapy follow up that would be needed to heal. It is now about two years after the surgery and my hand still feels and looks great. Dr. Chi did such a wonderful surgery you cannot even see the scar even though she remarked it was one of the worst cases she had ever seen. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone who needs a doctor for their hands to go to Dr. Chi.

Dr Chi is an amazing physician. She is super smart, very patient, compassionate and highly skilled in surgical techniques of the hand. She takes the time to explain all details of the procedure including follow-up; OT/PT,etc. Her office staff is great as well - friendly smiles sure help when you're having surgery. When I needed to ask her a question (after hours) she returned my call in minutes. My surgery was "release of trigger finger" that I let go 25 or 30 years. Glad I waited for her!

Dr. Chi is very good, professional, caring, loving, she took care of my index, explains everything in my last office visit and right before the surgery, and even 2 weeks after. I can't find a word to thank you for removing my pain for good. Also, her office is very clean and relaxing and the staff are very nice, caring and professional. Thank you Dr. Chi ?
