My wife was correct about Dr. Zhao, in that he is a very professional person. My wife had her knee operated on by him a few months ago and raved about what a great doctor he was. I saw him today,as I had done something to my knee just last week. Both the doctor and his staff had a wonderful demeaner. it was a joy to come to their practice and believe me, during my 71 years of life, I have had many operations and do wish they all had the fine staff this practice has.

He is a very blunt-straight to the point doctor. He is not the appropiate professional for my issues. Not a good listener as so many doctors are now. Putting a band-aid on something does not get to the root of the problem.

As my first time with Dr. Zhao, I was very impressed with the professionalism of the office staff, as they offered a scene of humor and being real to their professional attitude. Everyone I met and dealt with at his officewas knowledgeable about their job and seem to enjoy doing what they loved. Dr. Zhao himself was personable, likeable, and very knowledgeable about what he does and I could tell he knew what he was doing. It made me feel confident about seeing him and trusting in what he suggested about my personal treatment.

This appt was a follow up after shoulder surgery. Dr. Zhao is very thorough in explaining exactly what he did and why he it. He showed pictures of my actual surgery. He sticks to the medical subject. He doesn't waste timechit chatting about other things. Yet he does have a very friendly and has an easy going personality. I like that. I trust him and his abilities. If I had to have surgery for this again I would definitely trust Dr. Zhao to do it. His staff is wonderful too!

Dr. Zhao and his assistant Steve both answered my questions, were very interested in my information and responsive to it. Both projected complete competency. Dr Zhao said he would refer me for tests and I got the call the next dayfor an appointment. These days, not all doctors show interest, welcome questions and follow up so quickly. So this was a very good sign to me and very much appreciated. Steve was very personable and I liked that. Dr. Zhao could loosen up a bit, I don't recall him smiling ever. Couldn't hurt.

As it turns out, I am a regular visitor.. With that being said, I would never use another doctor (Orthopedic). I am pretty active and thankfully I can count on Dr. Z to keep me going. I refer all my friendsand family to him.. Lately we wall seem to keep messing something up. Very grateful to have a great doctor so close to where we live, work and play..

I thought it was a very good office visit as a healthcare professional I tend to be a little critical but his bedside manner was pleasant, direct, and he makes the recommendations after he assess you and actually listens to whatyou are saying, he was not rushed or in a hurry but took his time, I like that and I will return for my follow-up

Doctor was very firm about his Diagnosis of my condition and that after the carpal tunnel surgery it would be more time off work than I had hoped for. I will be abiding by his recommendations. Dr. Zhao seems to bevery good at what he does, and I appreciate his concern for my health issues.
