How likely are you to recommend Dr. Gao?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Gao is a special care pain Doctor. She not only helps with Chronic pain, but will try to keep you reducing your meds to reduce chance of addiction. She has found that I had need of 2 Back Surgeries that were blocked by the pain meds. She has also tested and found that I have Neuropathy in the feet & had me checked for Diabetes. I tested as Pre-diabetic and have controlled with diet. If not caught early, I could be Diabetic right now. Do Not see her if your a Drug Addict, as she is not fooled
