SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Good.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

He was very considerate and listened to what I had to say.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Seemed uninterested in my report of symptoms; preferred to read notes from previous visits. Explicitly declined my offer to describe my history with this problem.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Always pleasant.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

Dr. Kao was very thorough and professional. Showed sensitivity for my pain and past medical issues.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

I have a 15 yr. old injury. Dr. Kao is thorough. Caring, friendly and very knowledgeable.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

Excellent.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

I felt like he did not give me the respect I needed - about my injury.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

Didn't answer my questions; was confused by the addition required to calculate my prescriptions; treated me as if I was an addict instead of a post-op pain patient. Very bad experience.

SHC Patient, Dec 2013

Good.
