I was surprised after seeing many doctors to find Dr. Kao. He is a "real deal." He believes in total disclosure. He does not hide anything...good or bad. You always know where you stand with him and your illness. He will spend as much time with you as necessary to make sure you understand the illness and treatment completely. He is tremendous!
