Patient Comments (8)
in Allen, TX |
I have been under Dr. Dao's care for about five years. She's by far my favorite doctor among my myriad specialists. I have a case complicated by a number of comorbid conditions, but I can always count on Dr. Dao to help me navigate my treatment plan. Our treatment decisions are truly mutual decisions, and I always feel involved in my own care. She's great about educating me on new treatments and research, and speaks to me as an equal. I've sent several family & friends to her with confidence.
She's amazing. Super sweet, great bedside manner, and has me on a trial that has GREATLY improved my life! Highly recommend. I drive an hour to see her- she's that good. (And great Rheumatologists are hard to find)
I waited 4 months to get into a new patient appointment, which is understandable with specialists. Her ability to actually listen to her patients is extremely lacking. She asked questions, then cut me off before I could answer several times. She ignored previous labs as 'inconsequential', despite a repeating pattern (with documentation). If you are looking for a rheumatologist willing to try to handle anything more than straight-forward arthritis, I do not recommend Dr. Dao.

I have seen Dr. Dao for many years and have had only excellent care from her and her staff. I have recommended many people to her, they all reported the same great quality treatment.

ReferNot enough characters - rudest office staff ever. Accused me off just wanting pain killers persccribed, which I dont even take them. I have gout in two feet and my kidney doctor recommended this doctor, but her receptionist was down right stupid and the lady who pretended to be her supervisor or the doctor, outright RUDE. DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR!
in Heartland tx |
Worst experience ever with a doctor. She didn't listen to anything I had to say. Ignored my family history and wasn't worried about a low grade fever I've had for months. I left her office in tears feeling completely defeated and with no confidence in doctors.
in Windsor, CO |
Dr. Dao is not only the smartest and most innovative Rheumatologist, but she is the kindest and has the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever had the opportunity to be a patient of. I highly recommend her if you have the opportunity to be a patient of hers either in a research capacity or just as a normal patient. I moved from Dallas and I really miss her.
