Dr. Ciao is excellent! He's thorough and professional in every way. Was seriously impressed with him -impressed that he went over extensively my last colonoscopy report from my other doctor. The colonoscopy/EGD with Dr Ciao went very smooth, even smoother, more comfortable than the last two I've had with other GI docs. Then not only do I get a personal call from Dr. Ciao the evening of my colonoscopy to see how I am doing, but he called me two days later to go over the pathology report with me.

I thought so highly of Dr. Chiao and his staff that i recommended him to 3 other people. He is very thorough, spent as much time as needed to answer each and every question that i had, called me on a Sunday night to discuss results and he is humble. I honestly felt like i was his only patient. I would highly recommend Dr. Chaio! I will be back to see him in 5 years..

Dr. Chiao is one of the best doctors I've ever met. He is very sincere and compassionate and also very knowledgeable in his field. He is very easy to talk to and actually cares about his patients. He listens and takes time to answer all your questions, always returns calls, even after hours. I highly recommend him!

Does not put himself in patients’ shoes. I have absolutely no faith in his course of action. My GI is out of town so I’m stuck with Chiao. He is not following what my GI would do, because he has not taken the time to listen me. He comes off pompous and arrogant. I wish he would listen to his patients to better understand what has worked for them in the past. Having suffered from a chronic illness for a couple years now, I know what I need. Clear liquid diets are not humane after 48 hours!

Dr. Chiao is the best doctor of gastroenterology doctors I have ever seen. He is very knowledgeable and patient. With his detailed explanations, I felt very comfortable. I have already done EGD and colonoscopy twice with him and I definitely will see him for my next procedure.

I had preventative colonoscopy and was quite nervous about the procedure and the prep. I delayed and delayed to go through with it.. However Dr. Chiao made me feel so comfortable, explained everything and took time to answer all my questions. Next time, if he is still working there in 5 years, I won't be worried at all.

Dr Chiao is a great doctor. I did my colonoscopy with him and he was great. Very easy to contact, spent plenty of time to answer questions, and he knows his field very well. the best part is he promptly returns phone calls and calls you pro-actively. Hard to find doctors that will do that.

He was very caring. He was very detailed and wholistic. I couldn't find office so was late but everyone was nice and understanding. He didn't rush through the exam. He gave insightful suggestions that will help me in all areas of my health. I was very impressed by him.
