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.

in Clay Twp. MI |
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.

Bloomfield Hills, MI |
Dr. Lao is very thorough, kind and assuring. I was a new out of state client with a lot of issues and he took me in. I was told by another doctor in Florida I had Lupus and was being treated for it with Blood Transfusions . I went to Dr Loa to request to continue these treatments with him now that I had moved to Michigan and he told me he wanted to have a complete check up from head to toe to determine his own prognosis. He sent for my records in Florida and ordered tests. He received my blood

I would definitely recommend Dr. Lao!! He is one of the best doctors I have had the privilege to meet! He took the time to explain everything to me, he also had time to listen to me and my concerns! he and his staff made me feel so comfortable I could not believe it! I was dreading seeing a male doctor but after meeting Dr. Lao I could not have asked for a more concerned thorough doctor! He never made me feel like he was in a rush!

Very attentive. Takes time to listen. Cares about your whole well being.

A person first, then a doctor that is knowledgeable, listens to you, calls you back, experienced beyond his scope of family practice. Cannot say enough good things about this doctor. So glad I found him!

Dr Lao is ALWAYS very informative, helpful and friendly. He truly cares about my family's health. You can't teach compassion in med school; it comes from within. I would highly recommend Dr Lao! Marianne Oselett
Macomb, MI |
The best doctor I've ever been too! He is very smart and he knows what he's doing!
in New Baltimore, MI |
Dr. Lao is very thorough and honest with me. He is not a doctor who overreacts to my medical test results; but rather provides me with reasonable corrective actions that are monitored via follow-up appointments. It is hard to find a doctor these days who actually takes the time to listen to their patients and provide them with multiple options to resolve their medical issues in a sincere manner; Dr. Lao is one of the few! I highly recommend Dr. Lao as a primary medical provider.
in Sterling Heights, MI |
Dr. Lao has been my PCP for years and I wouldn't trade him for anything! I feel that he really cares about me and my health. The staff at Chesterfield Family Medicine are all very friendly. At my last visit the Medical Assistant, Aaron, was new to me, but very nice and polite in taking my medical information.
in Chesterfield, MI |
Myself and my 2 kids have been with Dr Lao for 1 1/2 yrs now and I must say, he far exceeds the typical care we've received from other PCP's in the past. He's caring, compassionate and very knowledgeable on the various issues we've presented to him. I've never felt rushed as I have with other doctors and from the moment he comes in the room, his focus is on us. I very much appreciate the care we've received from Dr Lao and his staff. We need more doctors like him.
in Chesterfield, MI |
Dr. Lao is very thorough and always takes time to discuss my questions and concerns.

I absolutely love the office staff and Dr. Lao. They are all very courteous, friendly, and treat you like you are their one and only patient. Would recommend Dr. Lao to everyone.
in Shelby Township, MI |
Dr. Lao is very, very knowledgeable in many areas of medicine, and cares genuinely for his patients' health and welfare. But above that, he is kind as exhibited by his treatment of my late sister, Doreen, who had Down Syndrome. He spoke with her as he does any other patient without diminished mental capacity and she loved him. I have to travel some distance to his office, but I wouldn't think of changing to a doctor whose office is closer.
in New Baltimore, MI |
He is a great doctor! Never makes me feel rushed. I feel like I am being heard when I have a concern! The entire staff is very friendly and welcoming!
in Mount Clemens, MI |
Excellent physician. Seems to truly care about me as his patient and as an individual. Very thorough and takes the time to explain everything to me. My husband and I were referred to Dr. Lao by a young woman who is employed at Dr. Noorily's office in Clinton Twp. Her father is a patient of Dr. Lao and she is pleased with the care that he is receiving. Thank you for the opportunity to complete this survey.
in Imlay City, MI |
Dr.Lao is professional, makes you feel at ease, takes his time with you at the office visit. Lets you know about what exam is needed for wellness health care. I trust Dr. Lao with my health and medical care and would definitely recommend him to everyone. An excellent doctor!

in New Baltimore, MI |
I went in on December 15, 2016 for a surgery clearance - Dr.Lao was awesome as always. I got sick on 12/7/16 with bronchitis. I had a relapse of it on 12/25/16, and was having surgery on 1/4/2017. Dr. Lao (knowing my past) called in a prescription for me - and I am better to have my surgery. I have been a patient of Dr. Lao's for over 10 years. I LOVE the service I get from Dr. Lao and his staff!
in Port Austin, MI |
I would like to take a minute to tell you about my experience with Dr. Lao. I'm 59 years old and have had chronic pain since I was 18. I've been to numerous doctors that could not diagnose the problem. One day the pain got so intense that my neighbor put me in a wheelchair and drove me to Henry Ford Urgent Care. It was there that I meet Dr. Lao. After just two visits he diagnosed my problem as gout. I haven't had a flare up in 10 years. Thank you Dr. Lao and Henry Ford Hospital

Doctor Lao is so patient and listens to everything I have to say. The whole office can't be nicer. Always willing to help. Thank you Dr. Lao, Dennis Yamin
in Chesterfield, MI |
Dr Lao is very attentive when you visit. You can see and feel his concern when you talk to him. He looks you in the face and you know his concern is real. The times we've been to the ER or urgent care he calls personally to see what happened. One time I was in urgent care since there were no same day appts available and he saw me sitting there and had me come up to his office right away. All of the Anderson family feels this way. He knows my families names when I visit and he asks about them.
