    in Baker City, OR |
    I have had chronic kidney stones for the last 26 years so I have a long history of dealing with urologists. Dr Kuo is a straight shooter which I appreciate. She listens not only to my concerns but also my input. My case has not been an easy one. I think some of the urologists I have seen in the past would have given up on my situation. Not Dr Kuo. My case will probaby need to monitored the rest of my life and I plan on sticking with Dr Kuo for my urological care.
