Spent most of my office visits trying to psycho analyze me. She never gave me her professional opinion. She always put the ball in my court to decide like I had any idea how medications effect me??? I left the office every time asking more questions then when I walked in. Her nurses answered more questions for me than she did.Oh and good luck trying to get a refill from her if she is gone for a week you wont get one...period.

My husband has been suffering with migraines for months and all she did was give him a lumbar puncture and refer him to a neuro surgeon. We’ve been going in circles because he doesn’t need a neurosurgeon so none of them will see him. She also gave him flexeril for his migraines and also prescribed a medicine that is bad for people with kidney stones when he has a history of kidney stones. I would recomment you go elsewhere!

Dr. Gao-Hickman spent most of my appointment time discussing stresses in my life and psychoanalyzing me. She seemed to expect that I would nod in agreement with every comment she made. She wanted me to dwell on aspects in my life instead of my pain, the reason for making an appointment with her.
