Dr. Shao is a vascular surgeon and just removed a serious arterial blockage in my leg to improve blood flow to lower extremities. He is a caring doctor, easy to communicate with, gave me his personal cell number so I can be in touch with him in time of need.

Dr. Shao is awesome took time to explain the procedure I needed done and got it done in a timely manner. Even went as far as to give his personal cell number if I had any questions. Definitely will use again for any vascular concerns.

My husband was hesitant to visit Dr. Shao, or any specialist in general. After having a video visit with him he agreed to an office visit afterwards. He liked the fact that he explained his condition well, took his time to answer his questions, and made him feel comfortable. He was very knowledgeable. We appreciate his kindness and bedside manners!

I recently saw Dr. Shao for a wound I had on my leg. I was greeted with a smile and at once felt at ease.Dr. Shao explained what he was doing before he did anything leaving no surprises. I felt he not only cared about his profession, but for my well being as a whole. He spent time with me and answered all my questions.I felt safe and reassured I had made the best choice in having him as my doctor and will not hesitate referring him to all the I know.

I have had several surgeries with Dr. Shao and am thrilled with the results. I was in constant pain prior to the first surgery and after such success with the first one, I went on to have 3 more. I will do it again if necessary. "Thank you Dr. Shao"!

Dr. Shao is a vascular EXPERT and true professional. I suffered discomfort and swelling in my lower legs. He treated it with foam therapy that collapsed non-working veins. I feel 100% better. I am so pleased with his care and treatment. I highly recommend him. Don't think twice, make an appointment to see Dr. Shao.

Very good attentiveness from Dr Shao. He works well with his ultra sound staff who are a key to his success in vascular surgery. Easy access via text and phone to him; he reminded me at each visit how to reach him. Willing and able to give good description of diagnosis and treatment recommended. Be prepared for longish appointments and visits but staff in both ambulatory surgery and wound care clinic will give updates.
