I have recommended 2 family members to the pain management center. They have also expressed satisfaction with the process and end results to their pain problems.

June 18, 2019
A fine, knowledgeable doctor who has treated my through very tough times and helped me back to relatively minor pain issues. I am very grateful for his continued help and advice.

I felt like nothing was accomplished during my appointment i had to make a additional appointment 2 weeks later to see my main provider
June 13, 2019
I don't think he's taking my age into consideration when it comes to exercise and just leaves me dangling about what to do. he doesn't seem to realize the horrible pain I'm in and not taking into consideration two replaced knees, torn rotator cuff and repaired rotator cuff. I mentioned maybe a CT or ultra sound of back and he just said he didn't know what I'd be looking for and that was it.

Dr. David Cao is an Excellent, Professional, Compassionate and very, up-to-date, Knowledgeable Doctor (PA). I would see him gratefully, again and again as needed. He took the time to look at my "Medical History" on-line and he asked me about my appointment needs. He "listened" carefully to all my issues and because I am "skeptical" (although I didn't say this to him) I asked for medical assistance. He offered me several ultimatums and I chose which worked the BEST for me. He proceeded to inject my back (which is what I needed and wanted) and referred me to an Orthopedic, because I do not have one. The "referral" was his idea and he is completely accurate. I definitely need a Specialist for a secondary problem (Rotator Cuff issue). Dr. David Cao also requested I come back in two weeks to follow-up to make sure I am doing better. He also suggested that if I needed it, he would "repeat" the injections and if my shoulder pain was still a strong issue, he would alleviate it with an injection also. I left feeling very thankful. Anyone needing medical assistance in Pain Management, should definitely try to get an appointment, which was quick also-"no waiting" with Dr. David Cao. He is the BEST, caring, productive PA and attentive attending physician, I recommend Dr. David Cao highly to anyone who has had bad experiences in the past. You will be 100% glad you did. Guaranteed. Thank you.

Dr. Cao was professional and appeared to be concerned. He offered many suggestions to assist me as I take multiple medications and have multiple dibilitating issues and I have concerns of controlling pain and the numerous medication I am taking .
October 30, 2018
Very professional, spends time with patient, listens to patient, ask questions, and does not rush. He makes the patient his number 1 priority.
