The doctor was okay, but he has the worst clinic staff and a horrible front desk. Very unprofessional and extremely rude attitude. Did not tell you to fasting prior your physical exam, did not greet when you walk in, all theyever said was "insurance and ID"... I will never go back, there are plenty of high rated doc, might as well save some time.

we had to wait about 30-45 mins before the dr was able to see us. expected, he is a family physican. dr tsao was very informative and let us know every step of the way his thoughts on what he wasexamining and what he was prescibing, and giving us different opinions. did let me know that he wasn't sure if his diagnosis was spot on and we would have to wait a few weeks for the results to see if the meds work or not. i do appreciate the honesty in letting us know that he wasn't completely 100% sure about his decision. he got the little girl who was so nervous during the visit, laughing and smiling at the end! what a feat. his staff, on the other hand, needs training. they were very carefree in my opinion. needs better staff. dr himself is great.

It was not a long wait at all it just took that amount of time because I was a new patient and had to fill out forms and everything had to be verified. He is a nice good doctor. It wasa short overall visit. One hour at the most for everything. He is extremely nice though.

Dr. Tsao is very courteous and very professional. Though the wait time was a little longer than I would have liked, when Dr. Tsao came in, he spent an ample amount of time performing the examination and providing a thorough explanationof the issue I was having and what actions to take in order to ensure recovery. I was very satisfied with my visit and would definitely recommend Dr. Tsao.
