    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    Dr. Dao's Care Philosophy

    For Dr. Michael M. Dao and for the entire clinic of DAO MEDICAL GROUP, patient's care and patient's well being are our highest priorities.  Doesn't matter how many patients are waiting, Dr. Dao takes care for one patient at a time.  Dr. Dao takes his time to talk to the patient, to exam the patient, and to explain everything to the patients.  The amount of patients who wants to see Dr. Michael M. Dao, and wants to wait to see Dr. Michael M. Dao speaks for his care philosophy.  Patients line up as early as 6AM (the clinic open at 9AM) to get to see Dr. Dao the same day (since Dr. Dao does not take appointment, just walk-in, but many other doctors of the group take appointment).  Some new patients complained at first, but after the visit, they all come out with a smile and apologize for the complaints.  Existing patients rarely complain about the wait.  People can wait at some great restaurants for hours just to eat some good foods, and here at Dao Medical Group your lives can be saved->does it worth the wait????
