      I would not recommend Miao for anything except maybe swimming, apparently he is a good swimmer since he was in the Tiawan olympics, not USA. My husband had a workmans' comp. injury 2 years ago while working for CCSD and was sent to at least 8 doctors including Miao. I am a retired nurse of 30 years so I observe what is going on and attempt to give the doctors' input since I am my husbands total caregiver now 24/7. When I tried to tell Miao about his disability he became upset. He can't walk now

      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. Miao's Care Philosophy

      Medicine is becoming more complicated. It is important to help patients to understand their medical needs in a thoughtful and considered manner that keeps patient welfare as the primary goal.
