My initial visit with Dr. Kuang was productive and satisfactorily. He was easy to talk to and seemed genuinely interested in my concerns. No rushing to judgement until I was able to see several other professionals for x-rays and physical therapy.

I see Dr Kuang for lower back pain. I like the fact that he's not a pill pusher. His procedures help me very much. He has a great bed side manner and is very professional. His staff is very awesome. Very highly recommended by me. Thank you for what you do for me.

I see Dr Kuang for pain in my lower back. He has performed 3 epidurals on me and I have felt amazing after each one. I think he is very conscientious and cares about his patients and their well being. Yes his office is small and busy but the outcomes I have received have all been worth it. I find his staff friendly, very busy and always apologetic if there is a wait.

Stay away from this place. The doctor (Kuang) wore a mask every time I saw him. I don't know what the heck he looks like. The office is a zoo. It is small, dirty, loud and unwelcoming. While under his care, I broke my patella and was prescribed pain meds upon release. No pharmacy would fill the prescription because I was under contract with Kuang. Finally, after much complaining and pain, I was able to cancel the? contract.?They don't care about the patient.
