I would recommend her to anyone. She is very caring and intelligent. Expect a wait time to be seen by her, she really spends the time with her patients.
in Seattle, WA |
Very Helpful. Office is clean, Staff is very helpful and nice.
in Federal Way, WA |
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.
in Kent, WA |
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.
in Auburn, WA |
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!
Bellevue, WA |
offering acupuncture based on business incentive rather than necessary. fake protocol and approach to holistic treatment. poor effect but richly fee charge!
Renton, WA |
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.
