About Weiwei Cao, MD, PhD

I chose a career in medicine because I enjoy understanding and helping people. I also love the fact that in medicine, scientific innovations continuously empower physicians to cure diseases that have been hard to manage in the past. I believe caring for patients as people is really at the heart of medicine, and it’s a great privilege to be able to help people in need. My practice approach is simple: listen carefully, examine thoroughly, then tailor care as much as possible to an individual’s needs.

    The front desk was very welcoming as soon as I arrived. Emily the nurse/MA was very professional and efficient and very kind. Dr. Cao was thorough, professional and listened to all my concerns. She explained the procedure I would have later this year and answered all my questions. Dr Cao has a kind and caring bedside manner and I love having all these professionals in my ARC family of care.

    I needed my labs sent to quest and was told to wait at the lab, I waited 30 minutes for them to fill out a Quest lab slip for me instead of the labs just being sent to Quest electronically. This was a huge time waster.
