Patient Comments (1)

Unlike many physicians today, Dr. Shao listens to his patients and involves them in the decision making about their care. He does not dictate, he suggests and seeks agreement. He is confident, reassuring, and instructive. In terms of his interventional skills he is quite frankly, the best.
