Patient Testimonial

“Dear Dr. Chern,

Please accept this note of gratitude for performing the surgery on my right ankle on the 4th of July weekend. You put me at ease and calling my friend to let her know everything went well. Thank you for making it seem like it was no big deal injury-wise (before surgery). 

Thank you for taking the time during our appointments to answer my questions and explain my injury to me and to put my mind at ease. I am very grateful you are my surgeon.”
