Patient Comments (5)
My mother had her knee replaced by Dr. Kao. My mother was very apprehensive and Dr. Kao gently guided her through the process, making sure she was strong enough before surgery to withstand the recovery process. She was very responsive to our questions along the way. Her decisions on timing for the surgery were sound, and surgically, my mother has had excellent outcomes. Dr. Kao has been very supportive, which made a world of difference in my mother's care. Would absolutely recommend her!

Dr. Kao performed a knee replacement on my 87 year old father. She was fantastic. She explained everything thoroughly, was positive, upbeat, and easy to talk to. We never felt rushed during the visits, Dr Kao answered all our questions and even asked if there was more that she could do. I highly recommend Dr. Kao and I would use her again if/when the need arises.

I had knee replacement surgery on my right knee on July 1, 2016. Dr. Kao was very thorough and explained every detail from beginning to end. She has an excellent bedside manner. Very friendly and easy to talk to. Extremely knowledgeable in her field and explains it so you understand it. I had no problems with the post surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Kao if you are needing knee replacement. On a scale of 1-10 she is a 10! Thank you Dr. Kao!

Dr Kao is an extremely caring and conscientious physician/surgeon. She very clearly reviews all options and makes sure you understand exactly what is being said and what she recommends for you. I am awed by all that she remember and how much she cares. My husband and I have, unfortunately, undergone several surgeries in the last few years. Dr Kao was the only practitioner who called the day before my procedure to reassure me and answer any question I had.

She's always extremely kind, compassionate, and willing to help with any of my need. She's a wonderful person and a fantastic surgeon. Have loved being her patient!
