I have a rare genetic disorder and I have seen Dr. Cao and I think he is brilliant. He is compassionate and understanding and he LISTENS to you. He tries to come up with the best plan of attack and considers what you have to say. That is extremely rare when it comes to doctors. My disease cannot be treated by just anyone so it is important to have that level of trust and confidence in the doctor that I have. I'm extremely grateful to this man

Dr. Cao is one of the most competent doctors I've eve huring a regular office visit, he looked at my neck and said something does not look right. He felt my glands and suspected I may have lymphatic cancer. He sent me for tests and a biopsyThe results came back negative, but my lymph system is not healthy. He closely monitors me and takes monthly blood tests. Dr. Cao saved my life because if he didn't notice a problem, I may have never found out until it was too late! I trust him with my life!

I originally wrote a post about Dr. cao and how smooth the iron infusions went. How I never felt better after the iron infusions. I'm currently in Florida and had to see a hematologist and wow what a difference! After two days I feel incredible! Dr. cao is not worth going to as he does not know what he is doing and the products he's using are inferior. I would not recommend him and I am switching doctors immediately!
