My first experience with Dr. Dao was exceptional. She was able to see me right on time and treated me right then even though this was a consult. I liked being able to move quickly like that.

After telling the nurse my symptoms thoroughly and why I came in the be seen, Dr. Dao asked me to repeat my story (which I didn't mind), but was VERY quick to judge. I felt like she didn't really listen to me. While I talked, she interrupted me several times and diagnosed based on only hearing some of my symptoms. I had to ask to finish my story. Then, she even admitted that she misdiagnosed. I was already in a vulnerable state and she did not make me feel any better telling me wrong things.

Dr. Dao was extremely sweet and made me very comfortable to ask questions on things i didn't understand. She explains in her medical terms, and then simplifies it for me.
