My experience with Dr. Dao has been great. Actually he has performed 2 surgeries for me, over a year ago a double hernia and recently Nissen Fundoplication. A positive outcome for both. Dr. Dao was very patient, answers questions and in my case allowed me adequate time both before and after the surgeries.

Well I had the lap and surgery a few years back every thing was fine at first ended up slipping so had to have it removed when discussed having lap and reinserted due to myself having weight issues was told shouldn't be an issue when it came time dealing with his staff was a challenge to get calls or emails I needed was denied by my insurance due to being 20 pounds to light even though I'm considered obese once again and feel like they can care less I'm back to the person I fought not to be??
