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.”

Hey, good morning. My name is [PHI removed]. I visited the office on January 11th for a right foot problem. The scheduling was awesome. I called, I believe I spoke with somebody named [name removed], and I actually got an appointment, then the very next day. At the front desk [name removed] greeted me and I completed the information on the tablet. And then usured into the back, escorted into the back there, by [name removed] and she knew my medical history, even even better than I did she she's very smart. And the, then most important thing is my Dr. Chou fixed my foot. I was in and out, and about 30 minutes, and most important things that my foot is pain free now. So, thank you very much. God bless you guys and happy New Year.

Dr. Chou and his office staff are great. He is very attentive and easy to talk to. He always answers all of my questions. His x ray tech was also very nice. A+.

I wish they would have spent more time with me. It was a very short time that I got to see the doctor. So, and we waited like over an hour before they called us in. Other than that everything else is okay. Thank you.

My experience with the doctor was excellent. My experience with the front office staff was horrible. I had to wait an hour to be called back in to my exam room. When I asked the front office, 30 minutes into my appointment, "What was taking so long to get me back?" They told me that they forgot about me. When I followed up again, at 30 minutes after that they didn't apologize for the delay and kind of had an attitude when talking amongst the staff

Dr Chou is an amazing physician who takes the time to explain details of my condition, the pros and cons of various treatments and their side effects, and listens very well. I highly recommend him!

Well, I went in to see Dr. Chou after an MRI, and I've been having shoulder pain. But my... my first concern is I just feel like he is over booked, and really doesn't spent the time with patients that he could. I've used him for shoulder surgery before and I had complete trust in him. But it seems that this visit that he was just super rush and being rush doesn't always come across well. When you... when you book a doctor so heavily, they can only do so much for each patient. And I mean, you can't make two of them. He's just one doctor, but if you could have two Harvey Chou, that would be a lot better because the need is there.

The doctor felt like he do. He was rushed was in a hurry. I asked him certain questions, and his car. His answers were brief. So I'm going to give him another chance.
