Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have a similar feeling with lots of comments here. Dr. Kao lacks empathy, and she just wants to finish the job as soon as possible.

Dr. Lao has always treated me in the upmost professional manner. She spends the time to discuss with me any issues regarding my health issues and is has a very good knowledge of all health issues that may arise. Personable also!

The qualities that I value in a doctor are compassion and patience. Unfortunately, Dr. Kao doesn't seem to possess either. She was curt and rushed through our appointments. I understand doctors have stressful jobs, but a caring demeanor and a willingness to listen to the patient go a long way.
