Patchogue, NY |
My neck pain is much better! I had neck pain and headache since my car accident 2 years ago. Tried physical therapy treatments and no improvement. Dr Guo did prolotherapy injection and acupuncture treatments for 8 weeks and now I am much better!
Patchogue, NY |
I had weakness in my face, diagnosed with Bells Palsy. That weakness spread to my hands and legs. I was panicking! Dr Michael Guo made quick diagnosis of GBS which is acute neuropathy. He sent me for IVIG infusion and after several months of treatments, I recovered! I am so grateful, God Bless Dr Guo!
in Smithtown, NY |
Dr. Guo is a great doctor, with special expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of nervous system disorders. His knowledge of acupuncture is a plus. He has been treating me for the past 3 years for peripheral neuropathy. The office is clean, the staff is efficient and courteous and will work to get a convenient appointment time.
Smithtown, NY |
I had back pain for many years with no relief, until my family doctor referred me to see Dr Guo. He was able to make diagnosis for me within a week and did prolotherapy injection for me. Also he is doing acupuncture for me. The combined treatment has been very helpful and I have had substantial improvement after one month.
in Farmingville, NY |
My wife is treating there for a medical issue and the staff is amazing. Everyone is very kind and professional and we would recommend them to anyone looking for a neurologist
in Mastic, NY |
I took my 14yr old daughter to Dr. Guo yesterday for migraines that she''s been having for the past 16 months. The girls @ the front were great & very knowledgeable in what they were doing. Had a very short wait time. After meeting the dr.it was very refreshing to not have a dr. try to push pills down my daughters throat but actually try to get to the root of the problem ??. Who ever left a bad review must have had an attitude before walking in the door ! I have a lot of confidence in this man !

The office is brand new, clean and extremely hygienic. The staff and doctor is very friendly and care about his patients. Dr. Michael Guo has helped me tremendously to recover from the MVA {Motor Vehicle Accident}. He also performed EEG {electroencephalogram} and EMG {Electromyography}. This is not an average pain medicine clinic. This clinic WILL NOT prescribe any Opioid / Narcotics, such as Oxycodone, Oxycontin, hydromorphone, methadone, Percocet and Roxicodone. I HIGHLY Recommend Dr. Guo.
in Central Islip,NY |
I am very happy that another doctor refereed me to Dr Guo. I was experiencing different pain issues due to several car accidents. I was told by Dr Guo that he recommends that I try the prolozone. I am in heaven right now. My back feels so good. I can walk and get out of bed with no pain!! I will be getting more treatments on my shoulders next month.
in Smithtown, NY |
Dr. Guo has knowledge, expertise & experiene in the field of neurology, pain management, & the treatment of many medical conditions. I know this because I have a few conditions going on at once & can be quite tricky to treat. Despite this, Dr. Guo has helped me a lot over the last 2 yrs. While he spends time & listens to me, he always takes a conservative approach to treatment, & he works hard to find causes & solutions to health problems instead of just treating symptoms.He's an A+ doctor!
in Sayville NY |
He is a very good doctor in my opinion. The treatments provided were very helpful with reducing my pain. He is a kind and gentle man.

Dr. Guo is a Very Friendly, Knowledgeable, and Caring Physician whose Main Goal is to rule out Every Possibility and Pinpoint a True Diagnosis and give Positive and Effective Treatment. He has become a True Friend with my Total Health Care in mind.
in East Setauket New York, NY |
I've had 3back surgeries and a fractured vertebrae which required a fusion. So for 3years I had severe pain in my lower back and I have a foot drop. I also experience tingling/pins and needles in my left leg with numbness. I came to see Dr. Guo and he was very gentle and compassionate,and he did all of my nerve testing. Dr. Guo explained a medical schedule for me and I started the regime and I'm feeling wonderful. He listens to my complaints and explains the treatment. I was able to swim.
