I just went to see Dr. Dao for the first time. I found his office staff to be very kind, helpful, and efficient. My visit only got better. His technician was amazing. She explained everything that she was doing and was just delightful. Dr. Dao then met with me and was very thorough and spent plenty of time letting me know how my eyes were doing, answering questions, and taking care to make sure I knew what steps were needed to make sure my eyes stayed healthy. I highly recommend Dr. Dao!

I took my Mom in to see D. Dao I need an urgent situation. We were impressed with his thoroughness and the friendliness of the staff. My Mom will definitely continue to use him as her ophthalmologist.
Dr. Dao did cataract surgery for me in both eyes and implanted the Symfony premium lens. The experience was fabulous and he kept me informed every step of the way both pre- during- and post-op. It's amazing to be glasses-free after 30 years of wearing glasses (bifocals and reading glasses)

I got premium lens cataract surgery from Dr. Dao and cannot say enough about my results and the experience. First class staff and facilities and I couldn't be happier with my decision!
