Dr. Miao really cares deeply about his patients. He does everything to put you at ease. My family has been with him 25 years.

Dr Miao knows his medicine,and he truly cares about his patients. He has performed 4 procedures on me over the last 20 years. He is the only Gastroenterologist I will use. Bottom line: I trust him.

I've had 2, soon to be my third, colonoscopy with Dr Miao. He thoroughly explains the procedure, tells you what to expect and then takes time to explain what he found. He is thorough and he takes the time to be sure his patient is at ease with everything he does. I highly recommend him!

E had a colonoscopy in 2010. I gave them the name of my cardiologist so they could get information about my pacemaker. They didn't. I was held up for several hours after the procedure while they contacted him. Doctor Miao did not discuss the results but gave ne a paper with information on it. I had questions that went unanswered. After the procedure they kept me with a kept me in bed with my arm still connected for over an hour while waiting for word from my cardiologist.r
in Brea, CA |
The best doctor I have ever seen! I was doubt for lever cancer, Dr. Miao directly called me every time before CT, MRI scan to give me a few instruction and explanation, and also called me after he got report when our appointment is a few days later, to tell me what he think and comfort me.
