Very professional. Dealing with severe anxiety and physical pain, I experienced nothing but professionalism and a sincere concern for her patient. I would recommend Dr. Kuo to anyone who needs orthopedic surgery, specifically of the spine. She addressed all questions, preop and postop, and gives excellent care to her patients. One week after major back surgery I`m feeling better than I have for years.

Do not use this Doctor, she and her staff are the worse people I ever meet, they don’t care about your wellness, I had a cervical surgery and about 2 years ago and I don’t feel any better, I was supposed to have a back surgery but her assistant and scheduler fail to summit documentation to my insurance and after a year still waiting on them to summit the info, I call and they don’t answer the phone or return my calls at all. Now I’m looking for another surgeon. Very disappointed on this doctor

For one she doesn’t care about her patients, doesn’t listen to what you have to say and takes months to years to getting around to a problem you have. They don’t answer their phones, besides the front desk, and NEVER call you back when you leave multiple messages over a few weeks. I’m looking for a new doctor if anybody know one! Need to get myself fixed up after she put it off for years

Dr. Kuo is a fantastic surgeon. I recommend her often with the following warning... be prepared to wait FOREVER in the waiting room and longer in the exam room. I have never waited less than 1 hour and I’ve waited as long as 2 hours past my appointment time to see her. Also, the office staff could not be more rude. That being said, I found her to be worth the wait. Cervical fusion done with absolutely no problems and a smooth recovery.

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. She preformed ACDF of C4-7 surgery on me and I am now pain free and have almost all of my neck movement back. She is very caring, knowledgeable, and gives you straight forward answers. I was very fortunate to have her as my surgeon.

I originally saw Dr. Kuo for persistent pain in my lower back: I could not sit for more than 30 minutes without moving. She did a laminectomy to "clean" my lumbar stenosis (L2-L5) and a fusion of L4-L5 to correct a slipping vertebra - that was March 2014. It was a total success. I have since seen her for what we now know is an S/I joint problem. She is great at answering questions, explaining what needs to be done and what to expect for the recovery. She is patient and listens very well

Dr. Kuo saved my LIFE on December 10th and I'm so ever grateful for her. She has changed my life forever was in a horrible automobile accident and things was looking good could have been paralyzed but, with her awesome team I'm back to work and living my every day to the fullest.

My wife has been seen by Dr. kuo 4 time now and had a routine surgery. So far my wife as waited nearly 12 hours for her appointments to begin and as spent on average 5 minutes with Dr. Kuo per visit. I do not understand how people get seen that may have a job. Her surgery went fine but was also behind schedual and once it was over, it was 2 days before we saw Dr. kuo again in the hospital. she may be a competent doctor but her servoce to her patience and lack of respect for others time is unsat

About Me

Care Philosophy

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...
