This was my first visit to her after transferring my care to her so expect it may take time for us to establish a relationship. She listened carefully to my concerns.

When you pour out your problems and the provider just looks at you and ignore your problem they should not be a doctor. Worst Dr I've ever seen. Waste of time and my insurance money.

Dani is always so nice and friendly. And I adore Amanda, Dr Lao's nurse. So kind and caring and very knowledgeable.

The nurses that we're there and the phlebotomist were awesome. I really like them and I thought they were recently personable and very good at what they do.

One talk for 30 minutes doesn't mean anything yet but doctors who don't treat source cause of problem and just symptoms aren't a real doctor. Will wait to pass judgment once I talk to lao some more and time

My visit was conducted in a timely manner. This was my first time with Dr. Lao. She took over for Dr. Nancy. She had researched my file. She knew things about me. I was very pleased with her customer service. I was very pleased with her suggestions on ways to help me. And if there was anything to improve, I was in a real hurry. Not the clinics, fault, my fault, I had another appointment. And I really couldn't wait for lab to come over. If lab could have come and see me in a more timely manner, that would have been the only thing. And the lab tech was very....very nice. Because when I left to go and try to come back later, they got me in to see her and it worked out fine.

Hi. Yeah. This was my first visit with Maria Lao, because Dr. Nancy Vanderberg retired, and I had to find a new Dr. So, it's really not fair to be judging my first experience with Maria Lao. I had a pretty good experience, but she does not know me yet very well, so I wouldn't blame her for anything. So anyway, thank you. Bye.

She was on emergency run, so I didn't get to see, Dr. Lao. And I sat there for 2 hours, but that's no big deal. I'll be back on Friday to see her, she is a good doctor that's it.

Excellent care!

Hi was disappointed because I had to call back because my prescription wasn't able to be filled and nobody called me back. So I had to wait a whole nother day before I was able to start taking an antibiotic.
