Patient Reviews
Apr 16, 2024
Dr Lao had to perform an inguinal hernia surgery to my 15 yo son. Since our first visit to Dr Lao’s office he made us feel safe. My son had his own questions and Dr Lao took the time to provide a very detail info in a funny and friendly way to make my son feel confortable with this procedure. Even couple days after the surgery I had couple questions and I got quick response from Dr Lao’s office. Thank You Dr Lao to you and all your staff at Hollywood and Coral Springs locations, both offices have very friendly stuff.
