Excellent Practitioner.

Dr J Chow is an EXCELLENT physician. During the office visit, he takes the time to listen to your concerns, asks appropiate questions and suggestions are delivered in a kind and compassionate manner.As a diagnostician, he has the ability to identify signs and symptoms with incredible skill even if you are "not quite sure what is wrong other than you don't feel well".He is very thorough, treatments are explained and you don't feel that you have been rushed through.
