What People Say About Dr. Shunzhong Bao, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Will not return to this Doctor. I was assigned to him when my long time Physician (Nair) left St. Vincent's. Boa looked and acted unprofessional. I had one prescription needed from the previous Dr. at the clinic filled (Vitamin D) but he did not follow through. Waste of time in seeing him.

I have only seen Dr Bao once but I found him to be remarkably patient, kind and concerned about my symptoms. He took the time during my appointment to go request records and test results from the hospital and other doctor visits I had. I was very impressed.

Dr. Bao is attentive to my condition and offers effective treatment for my diabetes. I have had more success since seeing Dr. bao than I have had in the last 15 years + that I've had the condition.

Through interesting circumstances, I was directed to see Dr. Bao for a complete workup. Previous to seeing Dr. Bao, I was two weeks away from a very nasty surgery including, a portion of the pancreas being removed and removal of the spleen. Dr. Bao saw me, did a complete workup and discovered I had new onset type 2 diabetes and put him on a diet. I lost weight and symptoms cleared. NO SURGERY!! We LOVE Dr. Bao!!!

I didn't care for this doctor. He has a very neutral (almost cold) bedside manner. Like most, he rushes and is in and out in 5. He doesn't really listen to you and tries to push you more towards homeopathic and natural healing instead of trying to address things quickly. He also wants to have you make an appointment for every little thing ($$$) instead of dealing with simple things that can be handled in a less costly manner for his patients.
