Dr. Dao went beyond discussion of health issues and recommended reading materials, even looking up one title on the Internet to show me the cost and availability. I feel that he cares and does his best to help.

I saw Dr. Dao in place of my regular physician Dr. [...] who is in the same practice. Dr. Dao is my husband's doctor. I was very pleased that Dr. Dao treated me so respectfully even though I was not his established patient. he could not have been any better or more interested in my injured finger. Good to know the team is so excellent in this practice.

Personally, I think that Dr. D is very nice, was sensitive to my pain. He is a very caring Dr. On a professional stance it is easy to see that Dr. gets a little confused, though I will say he does show empathy for his patient.

I mentioned during the exam that I still had some discomfort following a hernia operation I had a year ago. I also mentioned that the surgeon had used some type of mesh ... and that I heard on TV about some legal issues with the use of mesh and hernia operations. Nothing was resolved. I also mentioned that my breasts were tender, a little swollen and sometimes I could feel a very low level of pain - in a hug. One of the prescription medicines was given because water was sometimes retained. [...]

Your definition of a new patient needs to be updated. I had visited an Providence Express care clinic a few weeks earlier to this visit and used the Teledoc feature for treatment of this condition. As the condition did not improve, I was advised to come see a doctor in person. When I called, because I was new to the Providence Health plan in the last 4 months, I was required to be placed in a new patient doctor visit. The problem arose that the earliest appointment was weeks out from when I called; however, I had a skin rash that could not wait weeks. The scheduler did not seem to grasp the situation and was boxed in by the definition, so my care had to wait based on administrative rules, rather than putting the client first. I was very dismayed with this experience and do not have a high regard for the systems in place with Providence when it comes to looking out for my overall care.

Dr. Dao saved my life once already by firm suggestion. He is gracious, considerate, knowledgeable, accessible and the finest primary care provider I've ever had in 76 years. IF ONLY I COULD SAY THE SAME FOR PROVIDENCE CARDIOLOGY SPECIALISTS WHO, ACROSS THE BOARD OVER SEVERAL YEARS OF EXAMS, DIAGNOSES, AND TREATMENT IGNORED/DISCOUNTED/OVERLOOKED my circumstances that only Dr. Dao considered, recommended, and SOLVED.

the scheduler did not suggest I get a blood test done well in advance if my appointment so the doctor could discuss results with me during the exam; the second scheduler also did not suggest this when I had to reschedule my exam and additionally I had to request an early morning appointment to avoid fasting most of the day. it was the nurse who called to discuss my appointment that caught the error. I have been very pleased with the doctor and nurses at the office but have not felt the same level of competency has come from the office staff; they are very friendly but make errors, don't seem knowledgeable.
