How likely are you to recommend Dr. Kao?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Kao is the best…his methods are cutting edge and so genuine and caring – a rare combination. He is HONEST with you on what you need to look better than ever. It is easy to see that HIS WORK IS HIS LIFE, which in turn, makes you and the outcome of your surgery a priority to him. The entire staff is very dedicated and have gone above and beyond to take care of me in my after surgery care. (my recommendation is to listen to him and his team and do what they say). I’m a woman that tries to take care of myself and aging is a privilege with the choice on how I do it. Thank you Dr. Kao!!
