The Best!

Dr. Cao is very methodical and explains the situation so you can make an informed decision. I would not trust another surgeon without first consulting Dr. Cao.

Second chance at life!

I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer by doctors from Kaiser Panorama City in 2006. Kaiser doctors gave me a timeline of 3 months, of course, I was devastated by the news. Worst part of all my insurance changed and Kaiser would no longer do my surgery. I was referred to Dr Cao by my new primary doctor and he was a GOD SENT FROM HEAVEN . I scheduled an appointment on a Monday was seen on Wednesday and my surgery was scheduled for Thursday morning, all in that same week. I can truly say Dr Cao gave me a second chance at life, when other doctors told me my time was up. I am truly blessed and grateful for everything Dr Cao did for me n my family. I am able to see my son graduated from high school and become a man. Their are no words to describe the kindness n professionalism I received from Dr Cao and his staff. All I CAN SAY IS THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING YOU WERE ABLE TO GIVE BACK TO ME AND MY FAMILY, WHICH IS A HEALTHY ME! THANK YOU!
