Dr. Kwo was my doctor for the past as years he is as knowledgeable as they come. Great bedside manner. He's all for the patient. He has left Indianapolis and now is at Stanford University.

I had my 1st appt with Dr. Kwos replacement, Dr. Naga Chalasani, last week. Was not looking forward to the change. He is a very thorough and smart physician. I liked him a lot. As for my hero, Dr. Paul Kwo, he saved my life. My doctor since 2001, I went through 2 treatments with him. The second being Harmony. I'm cured ! This is a hard thing for me write. With tears in my eyes. I wish him the best in his new endeavors in life. Thank you Dr. Kwo Beth P.

Superb physician. No issues at all with him or his skills. Unfortunately for Indiana University Health Center and the midwest Dr. was recruited by Stanford Medical School after 30+ years at IU. Valid reasons, mostly family. He did give me his cell phone # if I need it while completing treatment.

I would definitely recommend DR Kwo. I am so sad he is moving on to another practice. I feel he is responsible for my good quality of life. He always knows your history including things you have told him about your family. He researched the best possible treatment for my liver cancer. He has treated me with Harvoni,which cured my HEP C , He was so helpful in making my decision on how to treat my liver cancer. Worked long hrs. always kind, considerate & listened to your problems.

Best Hepatologist in the Midwest. You are his #1 priority during your appt with him. He remembers you and your history. I've never had a doctor multitask as well as Dr Kwo. He doesn't waste time and will always keep on top of your care.
