I can’t say enough of how wonderful Dr. Mao. I stopped seeing her because I moved, but that was a mistake. After not being able to see properly for 2 yrs, I went back. She gave me excellent patient care, took a lot of time with me to ensure I could see with contacts, and gave me simple hints of how to help my extremely dry eyes. I will not change doctors ever again!

Dr. Lisa Kay Mao is the best! I had been to three other ophthalmologists prior to seeing her. My eye would not stop tearing! One doctor even suggested surgery. I am so glad I went to her and she fixed my problem! I am forever grateful! Highly recommend this sweet, intelligent and kind ophthalmologist!

Dr Mao may be very knowledgeable as noted in previous reviews but she is lacking in communication skills and bedside manner. Even though I had some eye issues which entailed a further office visit she failed to communicate that they would be additional costs until my contact lens replacement sessions was over.She also held my updated contacts lens hostage unless I ordered replacement contacts from her practice. Of course they were about 50% above on-line -mail order costs.

Dr. Mao is an outstanding physician! My visits with her were LIFE-CHANGING! She not only focused on my eyes, but on my overall health, and has helped me prevent a stroke. She was the only doctor who thought that I may have sleep apnea, and a sleep study confirmed it. Thanks to Dr. Mao, I now have a C-PAP machine which has greatly improved my health. My glaucoma and blood pressure are under control, and my risk for stroke has greatly decreased. She really cares about her patients. So grateful.

I've been seeing Dr. Lisa Kay Mao for 13 years. She is very thorough and genuinely cares about her patients. She will take the time to listen and she always provides excellent care and treatment, if necessary. She monitors my eyes carefully because of the glaucoma history in my family. I also see her for contact lenses and glasses prescriptions. I have very sensitive eyes and she was able to find the perfect contact lenses that are comfortable for me. I would definitely recommend her.

Dr. Lisa Kay Mao is an amazing eye doctor. She is professional and extremely knowledgeable. She has a way of making you feel great when you leave. She's patient and an excellent listener. She has provided me with contacts, eye plugs for my dry eyes and even helped me with my migraines. Sometimes it's hard to find doctors that meet your needs, but I got lucky, thankfully! She's amazing!! I would highly recommend her!

I went to dr. Lisa Mao to have my eyes examined. she's told me that I had glaucoma & prescribe me medicine,drops to put in my eyes. I went to my doctor in New Jersey who is an eye specialist. I was told that I do not have glaucoma and that my eyes are in good condition. Also I found out that I was over prescribed & my glasses were too powerful I was having a problem seeing.
