As I said earlier, I have never had a physician that I liked better than Dr. Bao. If she could be my primary care physician, I would be very pleased. She is warm, caring, considerate, very knowledgeable and extremely patient with me. I feel blessed that she continues to be involved in my healthcare. I highly recommend her as a physician and appreciate her is a delightful and lovely person.

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.
Patient | November 18, 2016

The best doctor and staff I have ever gone to in my life! (I am 63).
Patient | October 31, 2016
