Very attentive. Takes time to listen. Cares about your whole well being.
in New Baltimore, MI |
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!
New Baltimore, MI |

in Chesterfield, Mi |
Dr Lao always addresses my issues in a timely matter. He takes his time going over my situation. Highly recommended as a family physician
in New Baltimore, MI |
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.
New Baltimore, MI |

in New Baltimore, MI |
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!
Warren, MI |
Highly recommended. He is very thorough. He takes his time with his patients.
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.
New Baltimore, MI |
Dr.Lao has been our family physician for years and he's done a phenomenal job. We would definitely recommend him to anyone. Very helpful and caring.

in New Baltimore, MI |
Excellence care provided by Dr. Lao and his entire staff. We have been seen by Dr. Lao for at least 10 years, and have been very satisfied with the quality of care received. We have a special needs daughter, and I couldnt ask for a more compassionate and accommodating primary care care doctor. He treats our daughter with respect, and always asks how she is doing in her life. He has the uncanny ability to look past her disabilities and treats her concerns with expert care.

Dr. Lao is professional and caring. My questions and concerns are always addressed and never ignored. There is nothing he won't do to assist his patients in living a healthy life.
in Chesterfield, MI |
Dr. Lao is easy to talk to and I can understand everything he says. He has been my doctor of choice for 10 years.
in Macomb, MI |
Dr. Lao is a very friendly doctor who doesn't make you feel like you are just another person that he needs to see that day. He is personable and takes time to listen to what is going on with you as well as explaining himself very well so that you can understand exactly what is going on and what he is recommending for you in the future. He expresses a genuine concern for you with each visit. I really don't know if I can say this about more than one other doctor that I have had experience with.
in Macomb, MI |
Dr. Lao spends quality time during visits and answers all of the questions. He is always so professional and caring. Once my children are too old for their pediatrician, Dr. Lao will be their family doctor.
