Great doctor, you can feel comfortable knowing he is treating you with knowledge and for the best of your health. He treated me through my twins pregnancy and also since I was 16 years old.

Experience was literally confusing and traumatic, I was scared and nervous, as a first mom-to-be I had lots of doubts and questions, when I came out of that office my confusion turned into fear, everything was so fast and rushed, no compassion at all, the only explanation I got was, they couldn't see my baby, and that i had other issues. Doctor prescribed a medication that even the pharmacy refused to release to me because of the high risk for the baby. Dr. never returned my calls. Very sad.

I saw Dr Chao for a routine post menapausal exam he and his staff were very kind and efficient. At that visit he ordered a mammogram. I found some lumps so they did extra exams. The Dr. called me the next morning and left a message letting me know that everything was fine. I thought that was extra kind.

Absolutely no bed side manners. Very blunt and rude. There was two different visits where Dr Chao told me there was no heart beat, he didn't even try to search for my baby's heart beat. I left his office crying and running to my specialist and of course they found my baby's heart beat thank God! This so called Dr gave me nothing but a heartache and rising blood pressure. He also told me that one of us weren't going to make it. After switching Doctors, baby & mom are perfect and healthy!

Absolutely wonderful doctor fantastic staff. Was present at hospital daily. Very attentive to all my needs. He went above and beyond for my family and I. I highly recommend him, he has delivered two of my children.
