Anaheim, CA |
Dr. Dao was excellent pre surgery and post surgery. I never had any problems. My surgery was scheduled approximately three days after my first visit. He was very professional, honest, and direct about rehab and recovery. Thanks again Dr. Dao and thank you to his staff as well.

Had a QME with dr. Dao and the report was wrong. He did not spend the time with me that he stated and did not pay attention to what I was saying.
in Westminster, CA |
Kind, caring, great surgeon - one of only two orthopedists I've ever met who actually cares about the patient attached to the appendage! Can't recommend him highly enough.
in Orange, CA |
Long story short, he shouldn't be practicing medicine. My mom went to see him for a hand pain and he concluded (after less than 1 minute) that she has heart problems or a mini stroke, only because her pain was in the left hand. He overlooked the facts that this could be tendinitis or arthritis. Jumping to that conclusion was scary but I immediately called a relative who himself is an orthopedic surgeon and he confirmed that Dr. Dao's diagnosis is nothing but rubbish.
