I'm so upset with his inability to listen to the injury he has been in care for and doubts that I have still have pain from the injury after 12 weeks of therapy. And have spent $$$$$$ on what he thought would be best treatments. But still treats you horrible....

I enjoyed the whole staff except for the radiologist. She seemed to be distant with her presence with me as a patient. Way too business like. She needs to lighten up somewhat.

Was very pleased with my appointment the Dr. was very polite and took the time to explain to me what my problem is and what would be the best way to treat it. He didn't go on about what we can't do .It is my opinion that Dr Zhao is the best Dr. that I have ever seen and everyone in the office was very nice and helpful.

I didn't even have my paperwork finished before I was taken back to be seen, and even then, the Nurses there helped me finish the paperwork during the appointment... Dr. Zhao and his staff know what they'er doing and are both very professional and people-driven in their services. The impression I had walking out of their office is that they DO care about what they do and the people who put their trust in them... Now that is great service. Thank you.

Highly recommended ! He is very professional yet is also very personable. Over all visit was excellent. My 12 yo granddaughter was the patient and he went out of his way making sure that she understood everything. She was at ease and comfortable enough to even ask questions on her own. Thank you Dr Zhao and staff!

Dr. Zhao is very thorough in his examination. He makes sure you understand what your problem is and he gives you options on how to treat your injury. When I first started visiting Dr. Zhao I felt his front office could have been friendlier. As the months passed I began to see new faces and the atmosphere is much better. I have recommended him to 3 people who have leg injuries.

ALL the staff was great. A very thorough exam was done to diagnose my issue, my options were discussed, a decision was made, and the procedure was done right then. Both the PA and Dr. Zhao explained everything with information I could understand, and all my questions were answered, and I had many. The office is beautiful and very clean. Brittany did a great job with a somewhat challenging insurance situation and was very kind, patient, and friendly. I was very pleased with my visit.

My visit to see Dr. Zhao on December 4, 2015 for a post-op appointment was a very positive experience. The professional care that I have received through Dr. Zhao has been top-notch throughout my surgical treatment regimen. I am very concerned about returning to normal activity after my surgery. Dr. Zhao patiently addressed each of my questions in a way that I could understand and thoroughly explained the specifics unique to my condition.
