Dr. Michael Chiu reconstructed my ACL and the entire experience was stellar. His passion for what he does and his expertise is clear – I have received useful, detailed explanations prior to and post-surgery. The entire procedure has been a revelation in how high tech the medical industry has become – and to see that Dr. Michael Chiu is in the lead, has confirmed entrusting him with my surgery.~ Self-Verified Patient of Dr. Michael D Chiu ~
I saw Dr. Chiu for a left hip labral repair scope. If you are looking for a kind, patient doctor with knowledge and expertise he is your guy! Every visit I was able to express my concerns and know he was listening. I never felt rushed and always had my questions answered. His bedside manner is one of the best I have come across (I am a nurse so I have seen a lot). After the first appointment I knew he was the right doctor for me and I could trust him for my surgery! ~ Self-Verified Patient of Dr. Michael D Chiu ~
Dr. Chiu took care of my daughter this year. She was in her senior year of volleyball season when she injured her hip. She was insistent on finishing out the season and he was able make that happen for her. They worked as a team to get her through to her goal of finishing out senior year without surgery! About a week after the season ended she had her hip arthroscopy done successfully. Not only is his bedside manner amazing, his patience with her was even better. ~ Self-Verified Patient of Dr. Michael D Chiu ~
Dr. Chiu is very knowledgeable and an outstanding surgeon. He took the time to explain my condition & options in terms I could easily understand. My arthroscopic knee surgery went extremely well. I experienced minimal pain post surgery & was walking without crutches within 6 hours after my surgery. HIGHLY recommend him. Thank You Dr. Chiu !!! ~ Self-Verified Patient of Dr. Michael D Chiu ~
