Patient Comments (1)

The front office staff are friendly and efficient. The nurses are smiling and competent. Dr Kao is extremely competent, very friendly, and more than willing to discuss problems and questions. Also, I have yet to be seen on time...they always take me in early and sometimes I am out of there before...more
