    Dr. Kao is very unprofessional and absent minded. I have been dealing with trying to get an MRI approved by my insurance, after Dr. Kao gave them incorrect information regarding what the MRI was for. I have already had to reschedule it multiple times due to his error, and have not received any word back from him. I will be filing a formal complaint with Stanford for this.

    No preparation done by the Dr. before the procedure. Very casual, not serious about his job!
