I had a car accident in March of 2014. Dr Guo was recommended to me. He listened to me and he explained his EMG testing prior to treatment. I had pain shots and acupunture and within three and a half months I felt much better. I was feeling like my old self. The sad thing was I was in another car accident,so am still seeing Dr Guo. I do know I will begin to feel better in time. I've recommended and have seen some of my friends being treated by Dr Guo. We all have the same response He's a very.

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.
