What People Say About Dr. Patricia Gao, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

If you're looking for a doctor who actually cares Dr. Gao would be my last recommendation. She doesn't listen to anything you say, acts as if she has no interest in helping people, and was totally clueless. You would be foolish to trust someone like this with managing your health.

If you want a doctor who rarely looks up from her laptop to look you in the eye, gets upset when the medicine she prescribed to you doesn’t work, and has little to no bedside manner. Dr. Gao is the one for you. If looking up how to diagnose a patient is all it takes to be a doctor, then I’m pretty sure I’d qualify. I’m better off googling and doing the research myself. I will say this though, I do like the Receptionist. She is efficient, knows her job and does it well.

Thorough, listens, takes appropriate time and attention. Sick visits are convenient, promptly scheduled, and consistently diagnosed and treated effectively the initial visit. Well visits are handled in the same professional manner. I searched a very long time for an exceptional primary care physician to get to know me and care for my medical well-being. Well worth the search ~ I'm happy!

Dr. Gao is beautiful inside and out. She knows what's best for you and is very honest. She cares for her patients beyond the work. The world would be a better place if there were more like her. If she had a daughter I'd marry her and make beautiful babies.
