"After waiting well over an hour to be seen by Dr. Tao (as everyone in the waiting room), he quite literally sat in front of me and my father for less than two minutes. As he tried to hurry and scoot out the door, I raised my hand to stop and ask him a question. He seemed put out that I stopped him, and told me to ask another doctor, that wasn't 'his thing'. I'm seeing rave reviews about him as a surgeon. I can't speak to that, but I can speak to his bedside manner and his get in/get out manner of handling a follow up appointment regarding some brain bleeding my dad had. It's not acceptable. Is our time not important? Is Dr. Tao's time SO valuable that he can't even pretend to sit and listen and care for more than two minutes? This type of behavior is a common occurrence in the medical profession, but that does not make it right. Dear Dr. Tao, please consider that your patients are looking to you as their medical advisor, and taking just a few minutes to sit and act like you care shouldn't ...
be that hard. It's your job. Please do better in this regard. Thank you. "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
