Patient Comments (3)
Dr. Kuo is aloof and impersonal. He never remembers my name and just does a cursory hello. My last colonoscopy with him was OK but he reported some misinformation about my anesthesia. On the other hand, his staff is excellent and they are the real health practitioners once a diagnosis has been made and you are under care, however I question his diagnosis without enough tests.
He has a horrible bedside manner. He even ordered concert tickets while I was having my endoscopy. His nurse is the only reason we stay with him.

First visit with Dr Kuo he's amazing but then he's so busy doing other things you hardly ever see him. Also i recently had a procedure he introduced himself like our first meeting him , I smiled and responded I'm your Gastroparesis girl - his response was I see a lot of you you're not special. Seriously taken back by his comment thought was so rude
