in Hurst, TX 76054 |
I would recommend Dr. Kao because of his intense interest in my son's twisted hand and his level of caring through the exam period and surgery. Since my son could not talk (car wreck 7-10-08) he was not able to tell Dr. Kao what the problem was. I was there to explain the situation and Dr. Kao listened with a deep interest. Dr. Kao is a great Doctor. You can be assured that you are getting the best Surgeon in Dallas Texas when visiting UT Southwest Plastic Surgery Department.
