    Had hand surgery by Dr. Chi. Went flawlessly. She came in after surgery to make sure I was doing ok. She is the kindest doctor I have ever had. The best in her field. Her staff is very professional and nice. The whole experience was very pleasant. Highly recommend her to any one. 5*.

    DR CHI WAS GREAT...SHE EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN DETAIL...SURGERY WAS A SUCCESS...I WOULD USE HER AGAIN FOR FUTURE ISSUES

    Dr. Chi is an outstanding hand surgeon. She is meticulous and my surgery was a great success. I suffered from Dupuytreni's Contracture of my left pinky finger. My finger was significantly bent and it had been years since I had seen it straight. I came to Dr. Chi because the knuckle joint was very painful. Sixteen days post surgery and my finger is straight and I am beginning to be able to bend my finger. The physical therapist is amazed at my progress in such a short time. Thanks to Dr. Chi!

    I was referred to Dr. Chi through Memorial Care medicare program. My first appointment she took time with me to explain the procedure, carpel tunnel release. Extremely personable but very professional.

    Dr Chi is very passionate and caring specialist, hand surgeon. I've recently had thumb surgery for my CMC joint (thumb), she did an amazing job and was very attentive to my needs during my rehabilitation from my surgery. She explained the procedure, expectations after surgery and the rehabilitation very well and right on point. I'll have to have surgery on my right thumb and Dr. Chi will be doing the surgery! Love her!!

    Ms. Chi is an excellent surgeon. I am completely satisfied with my carpal tunnel release operations to both hands. The care I received was excellent in all respects. Her office and staff were also very good.
