I am not sure how I GOT SO lucky to be blessed by having such an incredible doctor and staff, but I was. I always feel at home (unfortunately I am injury prone) when I have to go see Dr. Zhao. I always tell people that are 2 professionals, that no one wants to see. That is Doctor's and Attorney's, well Dr. Zhao is the "EXCEPTION". If you need an Ortho, go see him you will be glad you did.

Dr. Zhou is not only a terrific doctor. His ethics are unequaled. He does not do unnecessary office visits or tests/ Nor does he perform unnecessary surgeries. I feel very fortunate to have found him.

I had pain for about a year and what they did to me on my first visit produced INSTANT results and I am so so so grateful! I can work out again. I can sleep throughout the night. I can put on the seatbelt without pain. I can eat with my right hand again. I can hold my coffee cup with my right hand again. What a great team. Everyone is so nice. Treating me like I have been there for years and today was my second visit. I have promoted Dr. Zhao to friends even in other states and countries!

Several times, I had to show up early for an appointment. Each time they found a way to see me within 15 minutes. Each and every person I spoke to were kind and had a sense of humor. I hope nothing happens to my collar bone again, but if it does, I will ONLY come back to Dr. Zhao!!!

The office is very nice, but the staff and doctor are very impatient, careless, and inconsiderate (save for the front-desk lady who checked me and my mom in). Dr. Zhao is incredibly cold and curt. He scared me into thinking that my shoulder (dislocated and then over-immobilized for months) would not make a full recovery. He made it seem like it would take months for me to even begin to see some improvement. However, barely 2 weeks into Physical Therapy and I had already regained about 60% use of my shoulder back. It really made me question his "expertise."

Poor bedside manors. I made this appointment as a second opinion. I have have an MRI showing my injuries. They sent him the reports and he said he doesn't believe they are real he needs to see the disc??? Fine if he wants to see how bad the injury is or is lication... but to state another Dr. Lied without proof! ...Ballzy, I've had this injury before and the signs are classic... also the Dr. who reads the MRI and my other Ortho Dr. saw the torn ACL while he was repairing my torn medial meniscus. Regarding the my other injury very clear it is torn. BTW ... Do Not question him or U will get a verbal lashing!!! This guy is really FULL of him self! He was out right rude to my daughter! He is a pompous ass!!! Apparently he has had some success in his career and good for him but it has ALL went to his head and missed his heart! It doesn't take all of that to get your point across or to be a great doctor... he's missing the mark

Too long of a wait for a 5 minute visit. The appt was made 6 wks ago. Should not have to wait that long. I was late to another appt because of the long wait and my drive over there was 45 minutes. But Nicole is very sweet and pleasant to talk with.
