I wish that everyone that had a good experience with Dr. Tao wrote a review, instead of those with just complaints. He is a great physician!
in Dectatur AL |
First I waited for almost 3 hrs for a first visit with him that lasted 7 min with his nurse practitioner and 3 min with him. I knew I didn't need surgery, I am a nurse I did my homework. I had a previous fusion in the cervical area and am having problems. I also have bulging lumbar areas. Already had MRI's and X-rays,. Smart enough to read the report. Wanted to talk physiology and long term prognosis. Also I waited for two months for this to get better, did exercises specific. Upset.
