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.
