"Very short wait. Dr Dao probably saved my life! I was having A-Fib palpitations during a routine gastric examination of my esophagus and stomach. He did an echo gram and XRay of a hiatal hernia that had pushed up behind my heart! He told my gastroenterologist what he saw and recommended surgery right away. Now, the hernia is gone, stomach back where it belongs and all heart symptoms have disappeared with normal blood pressure too. Careful examination and quick thinking saved the day! Post hernial op follow up was A OK. If I everDO have heart problems, he’s my guy. Very professional and thorough. Dr Timothy Dao knows his stuff!"
