Dr. Khoo is one of the most qualified, caring, and patient physicians I've ever visited and at age 72 I've seen quite a few doctors over the years. First I saw Chris, who is his nurse-practitioner (and wife!) and she recorded a thorough history and performed an initial exam.

Went to Dr Khoo. He sent me to a pain management Dr for cortisone injections and to monitor me! I have a few disks that are out. After having 6 cortisone shots my back was better for about 3 weeks then pow another disk was pushing into my spinal cord to the point it was affecting my bowels and I could not walk or stand straight. My legs swoll and had to go to the er. I called to get an urgent appointment because my pain Dr said I need surgery. They refused to schedule me any sooner than 11 week
