Dr. Chou specializes in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine, with an emphasis in foot and ankle surgery. Dr. Chou—who calls orthopedics “a specialty where patients tend to recover and are motivated to recover”—became an orthopedic surgeon “to help people improve their quality of life and recover from injuries,” adding “the most important thing for me was to develop relationships with people and help them get well.”  An avid reader and snow skier, Chou grew up in a large, extended family. He says patients might be surprised to learn that he “went to high school with three of my cousins.”

Very friendly and kind.. treated me as an equal with never an air of superiority! He was like me going to a friend for advice, not a Dr with a bunch of medical jargon that I couldn't understand!

Good doctor. Very personable.
September 27, 2016
The provider was very pleasant and good listener. The front office were very quick at checking in patients, professional, and polite. The MA who brought me in did not introduce herself or even smile; pretty dry personality. Other than that, my first experience was good.

Dr. Chou did a partial hip replacement a few years ago and has treated me ever since. He is kind and caring and very reassuring. I have the utmost confidence in him based on experience.
August 08, 2016
He explains so you can understand. He answers all questions, take his time with you, is careful with numbing your injured area before he injects you with needed medicine.You don't have to wait long to be called and you don't wait long in the office for the Dr. to come in to see you. Will recommend this Dr to family and friends requiring treatment.
August 01, 2016
Dr Chou is wonderful. He asks questions and really listens to me. He doesn't give up when something doesn't work. He explains everything and tells me the odds of success. I never feel he's in a hurry to get rid of me, but he doesn't waste my time either. I'd recommend him to anyone.

I am impressed with busy professionals like Dr. Chou , who somehow act as though they have nothing else to do but to talk in a friendly, relaxed, comfortable way with me. Even when the time of an appointment is necessarily brief, as it was this week, I never felt that he was rushed or impatient with my questions. I feel quite fortunate that I happened to be referred to Dr. Harvey Chou!
