I have frequent chronic headache since 14 years old. Once my headache starts, it feels just like a bomb explosion in side my head. The pressure makes me have to hit my head with hands strongly and the pain will spread to my whole body. I gave up seeing any doctors since 20 years old. None of them can help. I just ignore it until one of my church friends recommends this pain clinic. Since they accepts my BS PPO Covered CA insurance which there is seldom place able to take, I came to office for

I have been a patient of this clinic for over 1 year, my low back pain is a lot better. I thank Dr. Zhao and his staff for helping me thru my recovery. There are some days that you have to wait to see the doctor and your appointment time may be delay, but that is because Dr. Zhao takes his time with each patient. He's a great doctor who cares and listen to all your complains. I am so glad I found him and his team. This doctor is definitely worth the drive and wait!

Unbelievable! First visit. My son is in severe pain. We arrive at the appointment on time. After 1.5 hours of waiting, I see what I think is the doctor walk through the lobby and head downstairs to the lower part of the entry (which is an atrium). Down there are a couple of gardeners working on planting plants and arranging stones. He decides they are not doing the job correctly and not just corrects them verbally - but JOINS them. He is down on his knees arranging stones and moving plant

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
