Thorough and answered all of my questions

Dr. Chao has been a pleasure in helping with my health needs. He made sure to go through my medical history thoroughly and gave me plenty of information on how to treat my foot pain. He even went through great lengths to call me back at his leisure and even gives out his e-mail address!!! he is kind and eager to help come to his doorstep and i am thankful to have Dr. Chao as a physician. Now if only he treated more conditions than the foot and ankle, I would see his for all my medical concerns!!!!

The staff was awesome a two out of three doctors i met with were pleasant. But dr john chao was my worst experience with any entounter with a professional.when we ask about our options he repeatedly told us he foesnt care what decision we make he would go home and sleep like a baby. When we asked about the surgery he said well we would go in there and waut do you have insurance? Well you would need to surgeries but your case just one wecwould amputate the toe. my wife asked him will he be able to go back to his normal he answers well his life isnt normal. Ask my wife asks him another ? While telling us he doesnt have time for this he asked her what she did for a living???? He was so cold my wife left out in tears. It was so bad a nurse who we never met came in and asked was i ok and why did that doctor keep saying he does not care. As pleaded with this man to why the treatment we asked for another doctor. I could think of a few reasons why the treatment but what good will it d. Besides that the rest of the staff was awesome, very polite i felt comfortable and well tooken care of.
