    You fixed my sister’s leg after her motorcycle accident and when a bone infection set in, you were there for me as well. We need your great compassion that you show everyone to continue so I am praying for your speedy recovery. You are the best.

    To Dr. Chow and family
    Dr. Chow you are in my thoughts and my prayers. Please get better. You helped my partner after she was hit by a car and made her run again. It was touch and go, but you made it happen. You encouraged me when I was in the hospital soon after brain surgery, now it is my time to ask you to fight.You are a top notch surgeon and we need you. Please get better, and we hope to see you around soon
    I will be thinking and praying for you everyday.

    I just could not believe when i heard that Dr. Chow was in this terrible accident……I felt so bad for him and his very nice family.
    I work in construction and a few years ago I worked on repairs to the street he lived on and spoke to him and his wife quite a bit. I have had pain in my fingers for a few years and one morning he said hello and we spoke for a few minutes so I mentioned about my hand and he took like ten minutes to have a look at it and tell me what to do to see if it would help me out.
    He is such a class guy, very down to earth and nice. Actually, his whole family is awesome; very friendly and respectfull.
    I wish him and his family all the best and may he get back on the saddle very soon.
    GOD BLESS Dr. Chow

    My family and I are praying for you Dr. Chow. We will NEVER forget the smile that spread across your face and the hope you restored for us after seeing my sister’s bone scan results following chemotherapy and radiation for stage IV breast cancer. You were so kind, patient, and clearly happy for us. Words cannot express our gratitude. May God be with you now as you fight your way back from the tremendous injuries you have suffered. We know that miracles are possible having witnessed one, so we will pray for one for you now: it is your turn. May God be with you and your family.

    I am praying for your recovery every day since I heard about your accident. You have done so much for me. The first surgeon to do something and fix my shoulder and my hand. I remember when I broke my hand on a cruise in January and when I got back you rearranged your entire surgery schedule to get me into surgery the following day. You and your staff were amazing. I enjoyed our chats about hockey.
    I wish him and his family all the best and I look forward to seeing you across the Sens Stadium soon!
    God Bless Dr. Chow
