Spring, TX |
Do not come to this doctor because the office lady is so rude. I have been tried to make appointment for one month and still cannot succeed. My primary doctor office faxed referral letter to Dr. Chao's office and they keep asking for the letter. I asked them to double check the fax machine to see if they have received the letter. They asked me to find another doctor. Can you believe it?

This doctor right here is the prime example of what a doctor should be! Very sharp and one of the biggest hearts you will ever find. When he steps into the examination room, he will not exit until he is sure he has taken care of me in every way he can. A good man, a good friend, and an incredible doctor.

I had met Dr. Chao while I worked in critical care at a local hospital. Very intelligent, very caring! I needed to transfer my care to a local pulmonary care specialist and Dr. Chao was the logical choice. I have not been disappointed!

I was having a hard time finding the right Pulmonologist and sleep medicine physician for my mom ever since we moved to Sugar land area. I was humbled by the amazing care provided by Dr. Chao. I was able to personally coordinate my mom's appointment from far away and mom had nothing but the best things to say about Dr. Chao's bedside care, empathy and compassion. He spent an extended amount of time with her to make her feel taken care of. She left the office with clear plan about her health.

Dr. Chao is the most upbeat and sincere doctor I have ever met. He is wicked smart and is always on top of his game. He has a very steady and happy demeanor with a hopeful and positive spirit. He specializes in internal, sleep medicine and critical care. I value his guidance and trust his watchful eye over my different health issues. When he is in front of you, you will feel confident he is giving you his all because he is solely focused on you, his patient.

I tried many times both by email and phone calls to Dr Chao's office to have them call me back after my initial visit but got no response. I was not improving to the initial med he had prescribed for me.
