my doctor help me understand things I need to do to make things better

7/18/2017

Dr. Jao was exceptionally thorough, as usual. He explained what tests and medication changes were needed and why. He answered all of my questions and concerns and truly listened to what I had to say about how I was feeling and my current problems. I did not feel rushed, I am always made to feel I am a priority and Dr Jao has a great sense of humor which makes the appointment enjoyable. For 10 years I was a patient at the UPMC Heart Transplant Center in Pittsburgh, PA (where I received my heart transplant) and received phenomenal care. I can truly say that I have been provided the same high caliber of care with my physicians at Baptist and am genuinely impressed with the entire staff.

This was the second time I saw *Dr. Jao, the first time wasn't great but it was the first not unusual. This time it was as if he had no idea why I was there. It was very obvious he had not read my chart!

10/31/2016

*Dr. Jad is an extraordinary cardiologist. He demonstrates knowledge, patience, caution, attention to details and plans alternative treatments in preparation for unexpected patient issues. He is an asset to Wake Forest Transplant team!
