I agree with the other negative reviews. Lots of expensive tests ordered without telling you which ones are and aren't covered by insurance. I was told everybody has chronic pain, and felt worse after 2 acupuncture treatments when I walked out. Not because of the acupuncture but because of the uncomfortable position I had to lie in for 45 minutes. Before and After pictures of cosmetic botox in every exam room should have warned me about what this doctor seems to care about: money.

I came to Dr. Guo with trigemenal neuralgia. I tried everything for the pain. He helped me manage it. When all I was ever given was drugs. He is patient and listens to you. Which is very rare!! Thanks Gloria Greenwood

After waiting close to 90 minutes, Dr. Guo does not even perform a physical exam, reviews the MRI results and recommends his place for accupuncture. Place is a mill, not interested in medicine, only billing.

Dr. Guo is an great doctor. He is an expert in neurology, and utilizes several different modalities of pain management, including acupuncture. In my case, he patiently worked to treat my lower back and hip pain. He utilizes a “hands on” approach rather than using assistants to perform tests. Over the years I have found Dr Guo to be patient and caring, and he spends an adequate amount of time with me, answering questions and explaining his treatment plan. The office staff is always pleasant an

Dr. Gou is an amazing doctor of neurology. I came to him with Bells Palsy and I looked horrible. My entire right side of my face was drooping and my eye teared. Additionally, I could not talk well as I had no use of mouth. He was encouraging and friendly, always making me feel comfortable and full of hope. Presently I have about 85 percent of my face functioning and a full recovery is impending. He used acupuncture as a therapy for a cure. I am thankful that my internist recommended him.

I was in severe pain for over 6 months when I met Dr. Guo, caused by a 3 car motor vehicle accident which occurred in Late 2015. I could not heal. I did months of physical therapy and doctor visits but nothing helped me until I met Dr. Guo. I had neurological testing with him, pain management, Acupuncture, prolo therapy injections for my neck, shoulder and back pain which continue to date. He has been a life saver for me. I was unable to functure due to severe pain. I highly recommend him

Dr. Guo was able to successfully treat my arm and foot pain through various methods. I no longer need to take pain medication to get through the day and I'm sleeping better at night. I would definitely recommend Dr. Guo!
