Excellent experience with Dr Chao; he figured out what was wrong with my ankle and this was not easy. I'd recommend Dr Chao to any one with a foot/ankle issue.

in Tucker, GA |
Dr. Chao is a very compassionate and highly qualified in the diagnosis and treatment and ankle surgery. He has shown high ethics in treating patients. I highly recommend him. I would love to see this type of doctor more in this countries health care system. Socrates would be very proud of you.

I have met with many Orthopedic Ankle specialist (10+) over the last 20+ years, without a doubt, Dr. Chao is one of the best in Atlanta. He listens well, asks great questions and is very measured with his recommendations. I would highly recommend him.
in Brooks, GA |
He needs to spend more time with this patients, getting to know them in terms of how their injury will effect them in reference to their current career. Let the patient's career be part of the decision making. Also during my experience with Dr. Chao, my family members were give the bad news while it was withheld from me. As a 40 yr old person, I feel no matter how bad I ( the patient) should be told everything not just what my family preferred me to know .
in Atlanta Ga |
Dr. Chao was straight to the point... I walked in to the emergency room with 3 dead muscles in my leg and excruciating pain and he had me in ICU so fast.... He doesn't judge you..... I connected with him right off the rip..... I still have 35+staples but I'm thankful for him.....
in Gainesville,Ga |
Very rushed, had to drag exercises out of him by asking should I do this or try that?. He told his assistant to get me some wedges and left. The assistant said they were out and would mail them to me. Doc wanted me to wear for month to see if they helped.Been a month,still no wedges.
