My husband and I have been with Dr. Chao for several years on the recommendation of a friend. I couldn't be happier with the care he gives and the compassion and concern he has for us. He is very knowledgeable and I always feel at ease and well educated regarding diagnosis when I've seen him. His "bedside manor" is spot on - always personable and professional. He's the best!

Dr. Chao has taken excellent care of me, my allergies, and COPD lungs for over 30 years! Dr. Chao is a superb, warm, and brilliant physician who, when needed, goes way beyond normal professional expectations. When he moved his office to Shelton, I continued to drive from Westport . He is the reason that I am breathing in and out today. I give him the highest 5 * recommendation! Sincerely, Kate Stuart-Gray, L.C.S.W.
