Dr. Jerry Chow, MD - Reviews

4 Dissatisfied patient – May 16, 2020

Patient

Dr chow does not take time to exlplaine he jumps around like a jackrabbit. He is definitely not gentle. Almost passed out taking out a stitch that was difficult. Said nothing to do after surgery in follow up care. Called office they said didn’t he tell u what to do post surgery. Never explained after eff to which was nerve damage. Should go back to China sub zero care. Never go again by him and would definitely not recommend him

I had a left thumb joint replacement in May of 2019. The thumb responded so well that I was able to schedule a similar surgery on my right thumb in December 2019. It is now mid March 2020 and I am back to full activity with no restrictions. Dr. Chow is a gifted surgeon and a great person as well. Well respected and liked by all the hospital staff I met. His office is very accommodating and well run. I never waited for a scheduled appointment. Office staff is great. I will definitely recommend Dr. Chow in the future.

Patient

Dr. Chow is so pleasant and upbeat that I enjoy our visits. He is professional and kind and very caring. He listens to what I have to say and I really appreciate that! I would recommend him to everyone. He is an excellent surgeon and my pain was minimal. My husband will see him for a hand problem of his his own soon. We highly recommend him!

Patient

Since my pregnancy in 2004, I have been dealing with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome. No, it wasn't an official diagnosis because I never went to a doctor for it. Fast forward to 2020 and the symptoms were so bad that I could barely use my left hand. I bit the bullet and made an appointment. The first thing Dr. Chow did was order an EMG and NCV which showed moderate to severe CTS in my left hand and moderate in my right. I thought I might be able to skirt by with cortisone shots but after discussing my options with Dr. Chow, I opted for surgery, starting with my left hand. I couldn't be happier with my decision. The constant tingling is gone and I am finally able to sleep through the night. He is straightforward and tells it like it is, which I totally appreciate. Tell me my options, the pros and cons of each and then let me make the decision. The office staff was wonderful and my wait time to see him on the day of my appointment was less than 15 minutes. I highly recommend Dr. Chow!!

Patient

After dealing with an open Venous Ulcer ankle wound for months that wouldn't heal, the wound was at a point where I was referred to Dr. Chow for a skin graft. A noticeable improvement was seen within weeks after the procedure, and now continues to close and fully heal more rapidly, with an actual end in sight. My wife and I both find Dr. Chow to be informative, patient in answering questions, and provides personal attention to addressing the immediate needs of the wound. We also enjoy his personality.

Patient

Would never ever recommend. Rude and just waited 3 hours for him. Office is rude and not at al helpful. DO NOT SEE DR CHOW

I would not go to anyone else, Dr Chow is highly skilled , easy to talk to and compassionate. I have never waited in his office past my appointment time to see him his staff is excellent and the appointments are easy to make.

12 1 Palos Heights, UL – Apr 12, 2018

Patient

I had satisfied my Blue Cross/Blue Shield out of pocket deductible by the date of my appointment with Dr. Chow and even verified it by speaker phone in front of the dragon-lady nurse. She was extremely rude to me and insisted she must collect $50. I haven’t even seen the docdor yet, but my confidence level going in is not very high.

Patient

I am a doctoral OT who referred a friend to this practice based on Dr. Chow's past reputation. I was dismayed to find out this person was turned away upon arriving by his wife Debbie because it was a past worker's comp injury which had no bearing on this visit. This client had BC/B PPO and offerred to pay for the appointment. When I inquired why this happen I was rudely told this client could not be seen. I find that highly unethical and can not recommend this practice to anyone out there.

7 1 Bob Dobalina in Manitowoc, WI – Nov 15, 2017

Patient

I made an appointment to see Dr. Chow,refered by a Dr friend. Showed up, receptionist Debbie Chow, refused to let me see the Dr. I made the mistake of sharring that years before I had surgery on my hand due to work related injury. Freakout time for Debbie Chow. I have BC/BS PPO and even offered to pay up front. Still "NO, I'm sorry, we cannot see you, we wont get paid." IT WAS YEARS AGO, not W.C any more. Whatever. There are other hand surgens out there and I will be visiting one of them.

Patient

Dr. Jerry Chow is the most thorough and hard working doctor I have ever met, he explains everything to you so you can understand what is taking place with your health care. I feel blessed to have been referred to him by Dr. Rizzo. I believe my medical outcome may not have been as favorable with another surgeon. Thank you Dr Chow.

Patient

It amazes me that people online want to troll Dr. Chow and his office hiding behind the computer screen. My family has now had 4 generations go to him from Breast Cancer, to lacerations, to carpal tunnel surgeries and he is nothing short of a miracle worker. To the reviewer about listening to what you wanted to do, maybe he's the doctor and might know what's actually best for your condition. I know Dr. Google automatically gives you an MD, but I would trust Dr. Chow with my life!

6 1 Lockport, IL – Feb 21, 2017

Patient

After meeting with doctor. I called the office to scheudel the surgery I was advised to call back next day because nurse was out of office and she does the scheduling. Deb the manager is very rude and went out of her way so that we would not schedule surgery. This office needs to be investigated she lied to my insurance company about diagnoiss and codes.

6 2 DFC in Chicago, IL – Nov 09, 2016

Patient

This doctor has no bed side manner and I found him to be strange in his approach. I went to see this doctor for his specialty, which is hand surgery. My overall health is good and has been good all along. He did very little examination of the area for which I came to see him, but instead chose to focus on my entire health history. He was acting like he was my primary care doctor, instead of a surgical specialist. He does not listen to the patient and I will never see him again.

8 4 Iggster in Homer Glen, IL – Apr 12, 2016

Patient

The first visit, I was able to get in early. The second he was about an hour behind. When all is said and done, I can wait the hour to receive great health care. Dr. Chow and his staff were friendly and answered every question I had.
