Dr. Bao was recommended to me and have seen her for my condition ever since. I have recommended her to everyone I know who has a need for this specialty. She is simply the best at what she does.

Dr. Bao is awesome!
Patient | December 8, 2016

Dr. Bao has never been anything but great in my eyes. She shows her concern for my health, she answers questions well. I have asked for a referral for another problem and she asked what I felt like were good questions to get me where I needed and I was very satisfied when I visited that provider (at Vanderbilt) as well. I have referred people to Dr. Bao and I believe hands down she is the best at responding and following up for them.
Patient | November 22, 2016

Dr. Bao is one of the best most caring Doctors I've ever had. She is caring, and extremely knowledgeable and won't give up until she finds the issue. I've had other dr's tell me I had to live with my condition and she absolutely would not accept that and helped me. She is kind and remembers me after several months and even details of my life and condition. She is truly a wonderful doctor and I am very grateful for her.
Patient | November 21, 2016

If she could serve as my primary health care provider, I would use her - best overall experience I ever had with MD.

I have missed several appts with Dr. Bao, although she brought them to my attention out of concern she was very caring and understanding. Dr. Bao made me I understand the importance of my appointments for the betterment of my health. I really appreciate Dr. Bao's concern for my health.
