Maher Gao, MD, FAAP: Helping others has always been Dr. Gao's passion. At a young age, he was inspired by his uncle and often shadowed him as he tended to his patients. After graduating from medical school, he immigrated to the US to complete his medical training. After rigorous studies and endless exams, he was successful in securing a Pediatric Residency with West Virginia University.

He enjoys working with kids and learning from them. Dr. Gao knows they are the bravest when they’re feeling so sick, and it’s a pleasure for him to help them get healthy again. Some of his medical interests include ADHD, Asthma, and Dermatology.
