Dr. Kuo is extremely patient. He explained the HOLEP procedure in detail. The outcome was the best I could have imagined. My urinary function is back to normal (the bladder held 2400 ml post voiding before the HOLEP, requiring a catheter). I can't thank him enough.

Dr. Flik operated on both of my shoulders. I'm very happy with results. Sometimes I'll perform a movement and remember how difficult it used to be and now, I am able to do it without any discomfort. It's important to follow his instructions and do the physical therapy as directed.
