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.”

This doctor was one of the best doctors I have visited. He was informative, took his time to explain my problem and let me know the options I had. He was super friendly. He made me feel like I had known him for years and we were just having a friend to friend conversation.

He is confident and friendly. He is also very honest.When my mother saw him for her knee pain, he refered other knee specialist doctor who did my mom's knee replacement surgery at PIH. He told me that his specialty was more about foot. It impressed me. Thanks to him, my mom is okay and very happy now.

It's not always easy for me to retain information when it's first explained. Dr. Chou was patient and kind when repeating himself to be sure I "got it" when I asked the same question a few times.

Because we are all getting used to poor service wherever we go, outstanding service is truly noticed. All of my experiences with PIH have been outstanding. Dr Chou has taken the time to explain fully both of my recent surgeries.

Dr. Chou is a wonderful and skilled surgeon. After seeing a number of other doctors for my ankle problem and being told there was nothing that could be done to fix it, Dr. Chou took one look at my ankle and knew immediately what had to be done. He was very thorough in his explanation of my surgery and assured me that I would be able to do all of my usual activities just a few short months after surgery. As apprehensive as I was, I knew I could trust Dr. Chou due to his extensive knowledge of my injury and his overall confidence in my recovery. He was right, I recovered according to schedule and I owe Dr. Chou a great deal of gratitude for not only healing my ankle but also helping me get my life back to normal.

Dr. Harvey Chou is TRULY an AMAZING Dr/Surgeon. He is extremely talented & skilled. Just as important he has exceptional "bedside" manners. I won't see or take my children to anyone else. Even if I'd have to pay out of pocket.
