      Dr. Kao is a brilliant doctor and I would recommend him to any and everyone I know. He listens to you. He lets you ask as many questions as you like. He allows you to make your own healthcare decisions all while giving you the pros and cons of those decisions. I just love this doctor! There's not enough words I can use to describe how good this doctor is. Oh yeah, the other doctors, nurses, and office staff are extremely good as well.

      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.
