Dr. Kao is absolutely wonderful. She is knowledgeable, nice, and kind. We switched to her from another pediatrician and we are extremely happy with her. She is always excited to see our daughter and appropriately addresses any concerns we have.

we love Dr Kao!

Dr. Lisa Kao and the office staff are amazing.. always so proactive and helpful

Dr Kao is a fantastic provider who takes the time to answer our questions and concerns and she goes over and beyond.

Dr. Kao is awesome! However, making an appointment was difficult, we had to wait nine weeks for an opening. Additionally, her staff (desk staff) kept us waiting & was rude. Kao is awesome, so is Rebecca!

We love Dr. Kao and her nurses. they are great. nurse [...] knows both of our daughters and it's so nice that she remembers them when we come in.

Dr. Kao is such an amazing doctor. I know my baby has the best care under her. I can't say enough good things about her. Thank you Dr. Kao!

Dr. Lisa Kao has been great to my kids healthcare and even if we live further now we stillcome and see her because she's thorough and listen to our concerns. highly recommended!

Dr. Kao is absolutely amazing. She has been our pediatrician for years and we could not imagine seeing anyone else. I refer her to anyone asking for a pediatrician!

[...] I get it, it's busy and things move quickly but I didn't feel any connection to her. like if something happened to him, she wouldn't even know who he was. [...]

Dr. Kao is amazing, and the staff is always helpful and courteous

Dr Lisa Kao is an excellent pediatrician! My daughter loves her & she always makes us feel better!

Dr. Lisa Kao is an amazing, knowledgable, kind and friendly pediatrician. She is always very helpful, listens to our concerns and provides answers to all of our questions concerning our daughter's health. We are extremely happy and thankful to have her as a pediatrician.

Dr. Kao was so kind and sweet with my daughter during her recent visit. My daughter felt at ease and that helped make our visit really wonderful.

Dr. Kao is wonderful with both of our children and we are so pleased to have her caring for them. She listens to our concerns and questions and shares her opinion/what's recommended as the care provider without judgement of what we decide as a family.

Dr. Kao is the BEST!

Dr. Kao is a fantastic pediatrician. We switched to her from another provider and are very happy with the knowledge, kindness and courtesy she provides at each visit.

Dr. Kao is the absolute best doctor for our daughter.

We love Dr Kao and her team at Facey.

we LOVE dr kao. she is very approachable and calming and great with the kiddos. she always makes us feel at ease and we completely trust her judgement.

Dr. Kao is amazing. Love her!

Dr Lisa Kao is an excellent pediatrician!! She related very well to my 9 year old's concerns during her physical.

my kids are patients of Dr. Kidhneff but this day he had already left. We were very pleased with the doctor we did see.

Dr. Kao is great at taking the time to listen to what is going on and checking out my daughter. The only thing I was disappointed with is we got a diagnosis I actually didn't agree with, but got the medicine to treat both that diagnosis and the one I thought my daughter had. After leaving the office, I am very convinced my daughter has what I thought and initially came there for, and not the official diagnosis. I do not understand why the dr did not believe she had what I thought - especially when she was exposed at school and it is going around Burbank.

the whole visit was great, from the receptionist, nurses and doctor.
