I am 42 years old and when other doctors told me my chances of getting pregnant with my own eggs was slim to none, he didn't lose hope in me. I am 11 weeks pregnant! Dr. Kuo and his staff are extremely caring, always responsive and knowledgable. He is the only doctor I know who gives out his personal cell phone. He works 7 days a week and is always on call. He also performs all the ultrasounds himself. He's incredible and the only IVF Dr. I would ever recommend!!!!

I highly recommend Dr. Kuo and his staff; Eliana , Michelle. Leanne , Adaure. At IVF Fertility Center, you receive personal attention and care at every visit. . He is definitely the most friendly and skilled fertility specialist you can find in Los Angeles .

Dr Kuo is an exceptional doctor in every way. We had a tough diagnosis going in and we knew it wouldn't be an easy road, but I had no idea it would take so much to get pregnant. When going thru these hard times you really need a caring, well researched and hard working doctor like Kuo. Unlike a lot of clinics the appointments run on time, he does all the scans himself instead of a nurse, he will see you any day of the week and submit insurance claims for you. I can't recommend him enough!

We can't thank dr. Kuo enough. After visiting many different doctors, we made the best decision to switch to dr. Kuo. He is the most caring, earnest, dedicated Doctor that we ever encountered. And of course, miracle happened! His staff are amazing too!!!
