What People Say About Dr. Kenneth Chao, MD
Reply
I have never in my life been so horrified with the fact that I cant make an appt. The phone service is HORRIBLE!! I wait on hold for over 30 mins. If this wasnt important I would find another dr, however he has already seen me but I may actually have to transfer my info to another dr. I am now on phone waiting again just to make an appt. Also after my last MRI I asked if the Dr can call me back to discuss. I called probably 8 times he got back to me over a month later

Dr. Chao is very caring, competent and knowledgeable in his evaluations and treatment. He is cautious about prescribing any medication and takes time to talk with me to re-evaluate my condition every visit.
