Dr. Julia Kao is incredible, she has a fantastic beside manor, professional, caring, thorough, and ensures that you are healing properly. My surgery was done outpatient, with an 8 cm. incision, she sent me home with everything I need! Also Rachel who is also amazing, made sure I had all prescriptions I needed, and was there to answer all my questions! I would highly recommend Dr. Kao and her staff!! They are the best!!
Dr. Kao is fantastic! After I had a freak fall where I broke my hip, I scheduled an appointment immediately. Dr. Kao was very positive, listened intently, told me my options, and made sure I understood everything. She performed surgery and visited me in the hospital every day. Her care and follow-up are exemplary. I truly believe that I have mended so well because of her expertise. I highly recommend her.
