Dr. C. George Zhao, MD

Sleep Medicine Specialist

Professional statement

As a long time resident of the Washington, DC metropolitan area, I take great pride in being part of the Northern Virginia medical community. Having studied under the guidance of Dr. Michael Thorpy, a world-renowned sleep specialist, I have gained extensive experience in the management of the entire spectrum of sleep disorders. I have had a significant amount of exposure to pediatric sleep disorders, and have a special interest in REM behavioral disorders and their relationship with Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.

I waited 30 minutes to be taken back for vitals check and then spent approximately 15 minutes with the doctor. He did not go into much detail about the result (in comparison to the pediatric specialist when he provided results formy son). I was fortunate to have been taught to read the rest of the report since his only check for understanding was "do you have any questions?" Question: if they can look at the report and determine you will need follow up care, why do they wait until AFTER the appointment to get insurance clearance? I am going to have to wait close to three months for treatment on what could be a dangerous medical condition.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Zhao yesterday for my problems with insomnia that I have had since I was a child. I made the appointment online and was able to see him within a day. There was no waittime and the staff were very friendly. Dr. Zhao was extremely knowledgable about sleep disorders and possible causes of my insomnia. He was very open to trying new medicines and/or new ways to help calm down before bedtime and also pointed out that there were most likely multiple reasons why I have always had such trouble sleeping (a small airway, anxiety, etc.) So far, he is the only doctor I have seen has given me hope for maybe getting a full night sleep finally after years of sleeping 2-4 hrs a night. If you have a sleep issue, I would definitely reccomend him.

Everyone I encountered during my appointment, the receptionsist, technician, and Dr. Zhao himself were very professional and friendly. Dr. Zhao explained my anatomical symptoms in a way that was easy to understand and gave my full confidencein him. He also took the time to explain what to expect during the sleep study the followup consulation. I am very happy to have Dr. Zhao and his team help with my sleeping problems.
