Missed diagnosis

Have Benin following with Dr. Tchou for years. Had a breast mass got a second opinion. Elected to go with Dr. Tchou for my surgery. She missed findings in other breast that other breast surgeon saw. She rushes and wants you out of her office so she can bill for more patients. I should have gone with the second surgeon.

Bad Experience

I saw her as a second opinion. After making me wait and sending a resident physician in first (I didn't come to see to a resident physician), she belittled the other surgeon I saw and told me she is a much better surgeon and should only come to her. She had a condescending tone and brushed me off when I asked questions. Needless to say I will NOT be going back to her and her rude ways. I will go with my original surgeon who was kind and compassionate. I don't know where she gets these great reviews. She needs to take a class on how to treat patients with respect and dignity and not treat us like we are stupid. Also, the total time she spent with me was 5-10 minutes yet she billed my insurance for a full consult.

EXCELLENT SURGEON

I am sure she is an excellent surgeon but offers little in the way of info. Ex, How will your breast heal. Some of people working around seem confused .Other respondent correct she can walk in 3/4 hr late and not apologize. Nice person Just caught up with her surgery and not a great communicator.Though her drawers are great.

Patient

Dr. Tchou is an exceptional doctor and person. I have never met a doctor with better bedside manner. She knows my childrens' names and interests and she has called me at home to offer words of reassurance when she didn't have to. She truly put me at ease during one of the most frightening times in my life. She couldn't be any farther away from "robotic."

Great Doctor

Dr Tchou was very kind, very sweet, took a lot of time explaining things for me. I was very nervous and found her to be excellent. She will explain everything, even draw you pictures to explain what she is doing. I felt very comfortable with her. Also, her sutures healed up very cleanly, even after two surgeries. I would recommend her highly. I can't understand the earlier review of her as "robotic". I found her to be the direct opposite.
