    Dr. Jao has the best bedside manner and caring treatment I have experienced. He truly cares about his patient's overall health and how lifestyle, wellness, and outlook on life can affect your health.

    Dr. Jao, has treated me with utmost professionalism, skill and compassion. He has exhibited a high level of knowledge and competence in treating my condition. I am here today, and able to enjoy my life due to my being in the care of Dr. Robert Jao, Shiho Nakano APRN-Rx, FNP-BC, and his entire staff.
    in Honolulu, HI |
    Dr. Jao takes the time not only to explain what your medication problems/issues are but also to listen to your questions or concerns. After seeing several specialists, he didn't take the other doctors words as fact, but instead started at the beginning. Also, I never felt treated like I was in an assembly line. He devotes and dedicated enough time to assist me in a complete manner.

    Dr. Jao was super busy, so they gave me his Physicians Asst..She missed diagnosed me..After the weekend of putting wrong medication on, I got to see Dr. Jao.. He was fine. The front office Sarah is fabulous ..But, NOT his Office manager and nurse, Noreko . She doesn't return calls that she promises..or seems to care at all.. For this reason, I would not go again to this practice..
    in Waipahu, HI |
    He's terrific. Very gentle, very kind, forthcoming with information about the diagnosis he makes, and competent at procedures. He is a doctor you can trust.
