Review for Dr. Chao

The horrible doctor that I have ever met. Very rude, impatient, no wonder people are hesitant and do not recommend him. One star is not even deserved.

Review for Dr. Najjar

My visit in the ER went well. He listened to my concerns, prescribed me the bronchodilators I needed, and gave me some helpful suggestions. Thank you, Judy B.
