Patient Comments (23)
Sarasota, FL |
This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had at a Dr's office. I went in with complaint of foot pain, CT scan (no report) and X-ray. I was charged for an office visit yet received absolutely no care. In fact, she did not even look at my foot, let alone examine it, stating she could do nothing for me until she could read the CT scan report.

Dr Chiu is personable, friendly, professional, and very straightforward. She clearly knows her job, and was a pleasure to deal with. I wish more docs were like her.

I've had the distinct pleasure of being under the care of Dr. Dawn Chiu's patients for over a year now, and can most assuredly state that my experience with she and her staff has been outstanding. Dr. Chiu's professionalism, knowledge, and friendly manner toward her staff, associates, and patients is truly outstanding. I personally recommend Dr. Chiu completely and wholeheartedly with no reservation or hesitation. Dr. Chiu, thank you for your care for my medical needs. R, Mike

Very informative, knowledgeable and concerned. Takes the time to explain, educate and offer options. Love the waiting room....interesting, fun and engaging! Staff is extremely helpful.....keeping you up to date when your appt. is running over time because of an unscheduled procedure with a prior patient and even offering you the option to see an alternative Dr. if you decide to do that....your choice.

Dr. Chiu put me at ease and thoroughly explained her diagnosis and treatment plan. She made certain that I had realistic expectations about what outcome to expect. Her hands-on treatment immediately gave me relief from long-existing pain.

My experience was impressive from my first phone call, the attentive matter to an immediate appointment, welcoming greeting and Dr. Chui's gentleness.

Dr. Chou is professional and knowledgeable about her field. She posses good questions and provides sound information to educate the patient. She also provides guidance as to proper care of the foot regarding a particular condition. Surgery is not her first answer but rather she explores appropriate alternatives. After seeing several doctors regarding plantar fasciitis, Dr. Chiu was the one that truly helped provide relief for my condition. I would return again.

Sarasota, FL |
Useless! Barely looked at my feet, didn't even ask me to walk across the room to view my pronation, suggested nothing useful and sent me on my way. Did a terrible job on my husband's feet with his callouses and sold us a bunch of stuff.
in Sarasota, FL |
She was very professional, friendly and informative. I trust her judgement in treatment and recommendations. Highly recommended.
in Bradenton, FL |
I went to Dr. Chiu for a minor problem. I was able to get a next-day appointment when other doctors in the area were quoting over a week for a new patient. She explained everything extremely well and offered suggestions for ensuring that the problem did not reoccur. As a result, I am going to switch podiatrists and go to Dr. Chiu in future.
in Arcadia, FL |
Very caring, but straight forward on my foot problems. Very professional and knowledgeable, wonderful office personal. I would recommend any one to this practice. Helped me to realize the seriousness of my condition. I would drive from arcadia any day!
in Venice, FL |
She was right to the point of my problem. Gave 3 different ways of handling and correcting it. Not only that, she educated me and my husband regarding toenail fungus and advised me on what I should do in the future.
