Dr. Chou has consistently shown informed solutions for me to manage both types of arthritis I now have. She listens to all of my concerns and gives me proposals for mitigating my pain. She encourages me to continue my plant-based diet, discarding sugar, to continue my exercise, and to learn to be less of a perfectionist in my chores and gardening.

Dr. Chou took the time to learn about me as a person,listened to my desire for information and my goals before addressing the health issue. I am knowledgeable based on my own research and visits with my other doctors. That is partly how I know that Dr. Chou is very knowledgeable about my condition. That makes us a good match.

Dr. Chou has always showed me the utmost concern when it comes to my arthritis. I feel the time she spends with me and the thoroughness in care is what has made the difference. Thanks to her determination and patience in finding the right medication and the right dosage, I am now as close to pain free as I had ever hoped to be since my diagnosis. she is not only an awesome doctor, she is an awesome person!
