My son broke his wrist and had to have surgery . We were very lucky to have had Dr. Kuo be the surgeon on call. Very thorough and extremely knowledgeable. You could tell she had a passion for what she does. Not only did she take the time to explain and answer all of my husband and I's questions, she took the time to make sure our 13 year old understood everything and made him feel at ease.

Dr. Kuo was so thorough in her examination. She was honest and gave us a very good idea what was in store for my husband as he healed. She came to the wound center to see him rather than making him go to the office. Very convenient for us! She has a very engaging personality and calls my husband by name, considers his occupation in her decisions and really personalizes his care.

Upon checking pressure points and where exactly I was experiencing pain, she dismissed half the areas I said. I later called requesting a document stating the extent of my injury and what limitations it may cause for my employer. She was supposed to call me so we could discuss what I do for work, she never called. I called back and her nurse relayed to me that "Even if the injury is causing you pain, you can still DO the work..." I felt Dr. Kuo didn't take me seriously & made a biased judgement.

She was very thorough in all her explanations. She communicated well and was an excellent doctor. She was very caring and concerned about the patient experience .
