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.
