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.
