Dr. Lao has been my family doctor since we moved into Chesterfield and shortly after that my retirement. He is knowledgeable, kind, sensitive to the individual needs of the patient and treats you like a person-not just another client. I have referred others to Dr. Lao and they are extremely happy with their relationship with him. Dr. Lao is just the best !

I saw Dr. Lao for the first time 1 month ago and I've had and additional appointment with him. My long-time family physician, who was excellent, retired and I need a new primary care doctor. I was overly impressed with Dr. Lao's thoroughness and genuine sense of concern. Being part of the Henry Ford Health System is a big additional benefit. Their MyChart on line system is great for getting fast access to test results and messages to and from your doctor. An excellent doctor!!

Dr Lao is a very competent and caring dr. I went to him once to get my ears cleaned (gross) but found out it was seasonal allergies. He knows his stuff. Highly recommend to everyone.

I have been a Patient of Dr Lao ,now for over 18 years. That alone should tell you something! He is very caring, he will give you all the time that is needed and will go over everything in detail. When you leave his office you have a full understanding of what you came for. always has a smile and kind words, never keeps you waiting for hours. I have sent friends and family to his office.

Dr Lao is amazing! Always so thorough and patient. My husband has been going through many health issues and he has guided through them all. We are both on the road to a healthy script free life! So grateful for this man. I have also referred 2 other friends to him and they love him as well.

At first I was nervous when I changed my primary care physician to Dr Lao but after the first visit I knew I had made the right choice. Dr Lao is very thorough and meticulous when it comes to my health. He explains things in a way I can understand and does it in a very friendly and sometimes funny manor. I'm so glad I made the switch to Dr. Lao

My husband and i are absolutely astounded by the knowledge of Dr. Lao. Whenever we need to see him, he is right on with his diagnosis. If he is unable to treat our problem, he is humble regarding it and sends us to the specialist. He is 99.9% right on. We have always appreciated his care, communication, and concern about us as a person. Wendy and Dennis Moran

My experience with Dr Lao has been a great one. He is always willing to listen to any medical problems or questions that I may have. He was willing to provide advice to keep my A1C down to a level that is acceptable to my condition. If I had any family in the area I would highly recommend Dr Lao to be their PCP. He is very friendly and courteous in his approach.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Lao to anyone. I did so in the past, my son-in-law, who is a patient of his as well. I have been with Dr. Lao for 10 years and have always had top notch service, not only with him, but his staff as well. I have no desire the change my PCP due to the way his office is managed. Dr. Lao has always accommodated me when I have an urgent health issue that needs his immediate attention, he will always put me in his schedule the same day, despite being double booked.
