    Yes, I would recommend. Sabrina his assistant is excellent. I have no problems with office or staff. Dr Cao appears to be very knowledgeable and thorough. The only problem I have noted is that I have a hearing problem and his accent sometimes makes it difficult for me to understand, And I think that frustrates him a bit.
