I used to have serious dizzy and balance problems. My ENT doctor had run out of options and told me to become used to it. I came to Dr. Z for help, hoping that her knowledge of the nerve systems could lead to a better solution. I’m so glad that I made this decision. After being treated by her, I no longer suffer from symptoms of being dizzy and loss of balance. I am able to drive without any issue. My experience with the clinic has been totally positive.

She didn't listen to me..She refused to fill out some paper work.She never ordered tests.She asked me"Why can't you work? After suffering a stroke and foot drop.Her staff wrote notes that were untrue..I never threatened my union on anyone.This caused my primary Doctor to verbally abuse me..A really horrible experience. I made the mistake of transferring to Dr.Zhao.BIG MISTAKE..I ques I learned the hard way..She pushes acupuncture treatment even if you tell her that you have no money.

I received both neurology and acupuncture treatment at Dr Zhao's office after a terrible auto accident. My experience with this doctor has been really good.

Dr. Zhao is a good listener and a very experienced professional. She is among a few medical doctors whom I really trust and respect. Under her care, my migraine condition has greatly improved.

Dr. Zhao is truly a blessing for me. She is the best doctor I have seen in years and is renewing my faith in healthcare. She spent hours with me listening to my concerns and answering my questions. She looks at the big picture and isn't one sided in her decision making. The acupuncture I received had noticable results in one session compared to months of seeing another LAC with no results. She truly seems to care about my health and is so kind and helpful. Highly reccomend this office!

A doctor who refuses visits by claiming falsely that she will offer you free acupuncture. A salesman more than a physician. Office workers such as Sierra are most inefficient and could careless about patients.
