I have been a patient of Dr Zhao since July 2018. I can't bend my back and tie the shoes before I saw Dr Zhao. After I have the procedure of lumbar epidural steroid injection and lumbar medial branch block now my life is back to normal. Dr Zhao is experience and professional. I appreciate Dr Zhao and his team.

I started seeing Dr Zhao when he had an office in Burbank before moving to San Gabriel. I am a migraine sufferer with neck problems as well. I got pain relief from nerve blocks, trigger point injections ,epidurals and botox injections .Also learned biofeedback. I had no discomfort when getting the various procedures. After Dr Zhao moved I traveled from Castaic Ca to see him in his new office since I did get pain relief from the procedures he did.

In the past 5 yrs, , I have involuntary movements, difficulty walking and lack of motor skills. I've needed assistance with daily care, such a cooking and needing assisance with sitting, standing and showering. It's been humiliating & miserable. I've seen alot of Neurologists, which went no where. Dr. Zhao has been a hero in my eyes. In less than 1 year, .he discovered that I have 2 bulging discs in my hip/neck & pinched nerves. The treatments make me feel like I have a future to get well.

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
