Dr. Kao is truly THE Physician ordering, tests, pinpointing medically your condition and pronto. When it comes to the point like it did with my brother, also James. His records had so many things wrong with him, Dr. Kao admitted he had already spent over an hour prior to his appointment reviewing them and they arrived out of order etc. and THANK GOD WE FINALLY HAVE A DR. WHO TELLS YOU THE TRUTH! Later spent more hours reviewing, ordering further life saving tests. He will save your life.
