Dr. Chao was an excellent specialist. My first child was born prematurely. When we were expecting our second, we wanted to do anything possible to have a full term baby. I had appointments every 2-4 weeks with Dr. Chao and her team. She took her time making sure I understood things, cared about myself and family, and was a bubbly and very intellect person. I valued her opinion and appreciated her help.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
