Apologized for the length of the wait which was nice.

I know it seems odd to give 5's for everything, but I am now confident I selected the best surgeon and medical staff for my knee replacements. I am inspired. I love the use of robotics. Before I saw *Dr. Chow, I was concerned about the surgery.

I have been told several times that this very busy and popular doctor is more often than not behind in his appointments. He has apologized to me when I have had to wait for him, and I appreciate that. He is such a good doctor that he worth waiting for. Since I am retired, it doesn't make much difference to me.

Dr. Chow continues to be an exemplary physician. As a physician myself I continue to be impressed by his skill, knowledge, ability to answer questions and his ability to connect and interact. Far better than most Orthopedists.

Dr. Chow should be cloned

Since this was a post surgery follow up I didn't have a lot of questions. I was doing very well and didn't need much medical advise. Happy that the Dr thought I was doing so well. No more visits needed for 6 months

My experience with Dr. Chow, his office staff, and the surgical facility were absolutely outstanding. Too anyone who asks I give Dr. Chow and Staff a resoundingly positive recommendation.

Would and do recommend Dr. Chow to all inquiring parties. When others describe their hip replacement experiences to me they all have some level of issues and dissatisfaction. I have none! All hip pain ended the day of the surgery. Dr. Chow's procedure, pre and post Op plan deliver great results.

Always a great experience when we are able to see Dr Chow. We do understand there may be scheduling problems from time to time.
Dec 11, 2019
Dr Chow has amazing bedside manners. He makes you feel comfortable from the minute he walks in the door. While explaining the procedure, along with pre and post care, he takes his time and talks in layman's terms so everything is understood. He makes you feel important and well cared for.

Staff and Dr. Chow, great experience!
Aug 19, 2019

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.
Jun 29, 2019
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!
Jun 12, 2019
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.
