After waiting months to finally see this Dr I'm very disappointed in the visit I had. The Dr was nodding off and falling asleep during the visit. She would wake up asking me questions that had nothing to do with what she last asked me.

The physician looked at the computer the whole time we were in the exam room, except for a minute when she looked at my finger and ankle. She didn't discuss prognosis, options, different medication options, etc. The younger doctors should learn how to interact with the patient rather than charting the entire time.

Dr. Chou has always taken the time to listen to all of my questions and complicated history, which can be really hard to find in a doctor that deals with your chronic health issues. She is straight forward when it comes to the certainty/uncertainty of the problem and possible solutions, but she is very compassionate towards her patients and always makes them feel heard and taken care of. My family loves her and I'm glad that I can continue care with her even when I go away to university.
