Very helpful.
November 2017
Dr. Kuo is a very knowledgeable clinician. He taught me more about my disease in 10 minutes compared to any other clinician who has cared for me. He is an exceptional physician!
November 2017
Dr. Kuo is the first doctor to provide me with clear, concise, & direct answers. He was very courteous & explained things well.

It seemed Dr Kuo had a preconceived idea of my issues. Considered me to be obese and therefore focused on the issues associated obesity. When i said that I consumed a moderate amount of alcohol, it was a eureka moment, and that was all he wanted to talk about.
