What People Say About Dr. Grace Kao, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

She is the most unprofessional doctor I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. She was very rude, asked personal questions that did not pertain to my health, accused me of lying when I said I do not smoke or drink, and the list goes on. She tried to sell me a neck brace and was very persistent, insisting that it's "only $18 with tax" after I said no thank you multiple times. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone and I have to report her. She has no business having a medical license.

This doctor is extremely impatient, arrogant, rude, and insensitive. She actually slammed her hands on the table and made sarcastic comments when my elderly parents asked her to help accommodate their privacy concerns regarding a treatment plan. This is one example out of several where she is disrespectful. Very unfortunate.
