Personal and Family Life

Dr. Dao was raised in Texas although she has resided in several states including California. She received her undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University and graduated from Medical School at the University of Texas in San Antonio. During her residency at Emory she had the opportunity to train under several highly qualified faculty within all ENT subspecialties including sleep medicine. After several years away from the west coast she is very excited to return to be closer to family and the ocean.

In her spare time, Dr. Dao enjoys any activity that involves the outdoors. She bikes around town as much as possible and is eager to give surfing a try. You can often find her tending to her backyard garden and nurturing a variety of indoor plants with her novice green thumb. She also loves to travel, both domestically and abroad.
