Patient Reviews

Mar 21, 2024

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kao for over 25 years. He is an awesome ENT. He listens to all your concerns. I?ve had several procedures done recent, fully awake, and I had no fear or pain. My parents, husband, daughter and friends are his patients. Dr. Kao has perfected techniques and patented other surgical procedures. He is always the first ENT to use the newest technology. You?ll never find a better doctor.
