Dr. Chao has taken care of my family for many years and there is no one else I would consult for a foot or ankle problem. She is a wonderful doctor, a brilliant diagnostician, and an excellent surgeon. She is caring and attentive. Her entire practice - nurses, assistants, schedulers - is exceptional.

I went to Dr. Chao because a friend had a very successful outcome of a different foot problem. However, my foot surgery is a disaster. My foot is 1000 times more distorted and painful than before the operation, and I have learned from several consultations elsewhere, that with a proper diagnosis and a different approach, I might not be enduring constant intense pain.

Dr. Chao ruined my life! She did my ankle surgery a few years ago and I've been in tremendous pain ever since.
