      Dr. Tao is great at explaining things to the patient, he is quick and accurate. I had surgery with him and within six weeks I am completely healed with no visible scarring.

      Dr Tao tried non-surgical treatment but was honest that surgery was likely. He fully explained the injury and the procedure to repair the damage. He took time to listen to my concerns and questions. Dr Tao also asked for my opinions of how treatment was progressing and impacts to my daily life.

      I believe that the quality of the surgery performed by Dr Tao and his team made all the difference. Post-operation joint pain was well below the level of per-operation level within days. I believe the speed and effectiveness of my recovery has its roots in the surgery performed by Dr Tao and his team.

      Dr. Tao was very concerned before the surgery. He was very detailed as to what was going to take place before, during, and after the surgery. He answered all questions we ever had, whether it be at a visit or a telephone call. I would recommend Dr. Tao to anyone needing his type of medical service.
