Long wait, but as everyone has said, in the waiting room - Dr, Chow is worth waiting for. I am honored to have gotten to be his patient.

Experience was good.

Even though she was very busy, she showed professionalism and kindness. I felt like I was the only patient..she was there for me.

In support of Dr Chow, I have to say that he is very thorough and takes the time to answer questions and concerns. I'm sure that's why he runs so late. I knew this in advance and didn't mind the wait. The front office squeezed me into an already full schedule, without my asking them to do so, because I'm from out of town and was only going to be here a few days.

Dr. Chow and his physicians assistance are the very very best there are. I'm completely comfortable with them and have the most confidence in their care and treatment.
Jun 28, 2019
Dr Chow is worth waiting for no matter what the time frame is. All the comments heard by other patients in the waiting room all feel Dr Chow is the best!
Jun 12, 2019
Dr. Chow and his staff are the best, simply amazing and kind.
Jun 12, 2019
Dr. Chow's style fits my style: professional, doesn't talk down but is clear and to the point, doesn't spend time in chitchat, gets to the diagnosis and recommendations right away. Exam was about 10 minutes long which suited me just fine!

From on-line reviews, I was prepared to wait 2-3 hours, so my expectations were already set. Others might not be so tolerant of a two-hour wait time. Clearly, as all the patients said in the waiting room, Dr. Chow is worth it.

Have seen Dr. Jimmy Chow several times over the past seven years. He takes time to thoroughly address patient concerns, fully explains procedures, and talks with-not down-to his patience. I have complete confidence in him as both a doctor and a surgeon.
May 23, 2019
Would like to be seen closer to scheduled appointment time but like doctor's philosophy of taking thorough care of one patient before moving on to the next. Dr. Chow always answers me questions thoroughly and explains things in great detail.
May 15, 2019
I feel that Dr. Chows background in engineering and his perfectionism is a valuable asset in surgery. I also like that he is personable and direct.
Apr 24, 2019
We're moving out of state, but plan on continuing with Dr. Chow. He's the best and it doesn't matter how far I have to go to continue treatment with him.
Apr 24, 2019
Waiting is always 1-2 hours. However, because Dr Chow ALWAYS gives me the time I need and never rushes, I'm okay with the wait. I'm assuming he's doing the same for the others. It would help if they told me how much wait time there was...do something like the restaurants do.
Apr 24, 2019
I would only go to Dr Chow for knees or hips and I've already highly recommended him. Friends have already gone to him due to my recommendation

There are not enough good words to describe Dr. Chow, but I'll start with AMAZING! He truly cares for his patients, is an incredible doctor and surgeon and has a rare bedside manner while explaining things so I can understand. You can feel his authenticity and I love that! He always makes me feel like I'm the only patient in the world when he's in the room and that's such a RARE thing in this day and age. It's much appreciated and I hope to be a Chow patient for life!

Dr. Chow is the best of the best. As his patient for 3 years now I understand that a quality doctor who cares about his patients one on one takes time. Although the waiting part is not pleasant, Dr. Chow is always worth it! This was my first visit to this practice/location and was pleased that the facility handled everything with kindness and as much efficiency as possible.
Mar 6, 2019
I was a patient of Dr. Chow in 2010, so had previous contact / experience with him. Have referred 10+ patients to him; highly regard his communicative skills, professionalism and manners.
Mar 4, 2019
I sing Dr. Chow's praises to all who will listen!
Mar 4, 2019
The good news is that Dr. Chow is the best...and I'd rather wait to see him than see someone else immediately upon registering for my appointment.
Feb 27, 2019
I'm moving to Kentucky but if I need my other hip replaced in the future, I would be willing to come back to Phoenix for Dr. Chow.
Feb 25, 2019
I appreciate Dr Chow's work/skill/gifts, in his work (my surgery) and I think that he has a wonderful /easy, manner about him.
Feb 8, 2019
Dr. Chow has been my surgeon since 2012. Recommend him on a regular basis to anyone needing knee surgery.
Feb 5, 2019
Dr Chow is an outstanding surgeon /doctor. Very professional. I had exceptional service. I cant believe I am getting ready to go back to fire truck before 7 weeks. He has mastered this hip surgery technique. I will be telling all my firefighter/police/nurse friends of my success and will refer to Dr Chow. Overall what a great experience this has been.
Feb 5, 2019
My wife, who is also a nurse attorney RNJD(malpractice atty) was so impressed how Dr Chow had checked my ID/Hip surgery site at least 3 times, He is the example that should be demonstrated as an example of what to do for other surgeons.
Dec 21, 2018
GREAT, FANTASTIC experience.
Dec 10, 2018
Dr. Chow has great skills interfacing with patients, the entire staff was very helpful and compassionate
Dec 10, 2018
I have spent ~15 months searching for the right doctor for my hip problem. I visited multiple doctors and believe that in Dr. Chow I have located the best hip surgeon in Az. His knowledge, expertise, and patient feedback combined with his patient interface skills are the best of any doctor I have experienced.
