Reviews Mean So Much!

Reviews mean so much to both the doctor providing care as well as to prospective patients. We appreciate your reviews!

Dr. Kou has helped me so much. My ankle was messed up and wasn’t repaired properly until I found Dr. Kou. It is critical that you take the time after an injury to find the right specialist to work on your specific injury. Dr. Kou is the best when it comes to ankles.

Dr Kou operated on my right foot 8 years ago this month. I am still fine and am grateful to have found him. He was very sympathetic, very patient and very competent.

I saw Dr. Kou recently for an ankle issue.  I found him to be very knowledgeable, approachable and patient. I highly recommend him.
