Dr Bao spent a very long time talking with us addressing our concerns
Patient | September 11, 2018

I would recommend Dr. Bao as an endocrinologist, but not for gestational diabetes as she did not appear to have insight into the standards of care that other divisions of VU currently use.

Dr. Bao is always very understanding of my 3rd shift schedule. Somehow I missed getting this year's appointment scheduled but she went above and beyond to "work me into" her, already very busy, schedule. She is a perfect example of displaying what Vanderbilt's CREDO is all about!!
