Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kuo "As a spinal surgeon I believe in treating the patient and his/her symptoms, not the findings on the MRI or X-ray. I will correlate the patient's history to my findings on physical examination as well as the films to create a plan for the patient. Not everybody has the same symptoms or symptoms at all from the same MRI findings so it is important to discover and treat the real issues so they may be addressed appropriately."

I would recommend Dr. Kuo to everyone. She is very professional, answered all my questions, and even called me back when I needed to find a cardiologist on Thanksgiving weekend before my surgery on Monday.

I wish I could give her zero stars. Awful. You wait forever in the waiting room and then wait a long time in the actual room just for her to not care about your problem, sit on her phone, and not listen to you. She also doesn't care about her patients it's very apparent
