Dr. Mao is literally the worst physician I have met in my whole life. Her front desk lady is always rude. The wait time is at least 1 hour to 1.5 hours. You may think that she must be busy with other patients and have to have you wait. No, actually, a lot of times, I saw sales person walking out of her office while few patients are waiting for her. She will cancel on you shortly before your appointment. One time it was only 1 hour before my appointment and I was on my way to her office! I was with her for 2 years, but she did not even call me with the right name.

Dr Mao's office was the best office I have been to in a long time. Although she was busy she still took the time to make me feel like I was the only patient there. The young lady that took my initial information and appointment was very friendly. I love Dr Mao and her staff

Do not recommend. If you need a prescription monthly or even every 3 months, she’s wont available to see you. Does not take care of her patients. I booked an appoint with her 3+ months in advance and then her office called and cancelled 5 days before the scheduled appointment. I asked when it was rescheduled for and they said I’ll have to wait 7 weeks. Average wait time for an appointment with Dr. Mao is 5 MONTHS. Beware.

Dr. Mao said to me in front of my daughter that if I had put her in public school years ago, she likely wouldn't have OCD and anxiety disorder now!
