Patient Comments

  • Dec 09, 2019

    Very thorough and knowledgeable. Explains things well.

  • Dec 07, 2019

    She is really good with my daughter and very well educated about answering my questions.

  • Dec 07, 2019

    As much as I appreciate the doctors experience, I don't appreciate waiting an hour and a half past my appointment time for a 5 minute visit. I travel almost 2 hours to see her and this caused me and my 3 kids to not return home until almost bedtime. I also had no one come in and update me on why it was taking so long until after an hour of waiting and me asking how much longer we had to wait because I had a company Christmas party, which I ended up being an hour and a half late for. I value the office staff and doctors time and just wish my time had been valuable too. I would have rather been offered the chance to reschedule or wait than have been forced to wait for a 5 minute visit.

    Nothing but positive. My appointment was on time with a very competent tech who did a through evaluation of my condition which was verified by Dr. Kuo so I am happy with the results.

  • Sep 16, 2019

    Dr. Kuo is very professional and understanding. Sad that she is so booked up with surgeries, that I can't see her until January. Need to have my procedure done earlier.

  • Sep 15, 2019

    Usually they are pretty fast with appointment times and I don't have to wait long but ny last appointment was scheduled at 11:15 and I didn't get seen until 12:30.

  • Sep 07, 2019

    Dr Kuo was never in a hurry, always had time to answer all my questions. She is a great surgeon and a great doctor.

  • Sep 07, 2019

    I was very pleased with Dr. Kuo. The surgery was spot on! She corrected my double vision at 100%. I am very thankful after suffering a year and a half to have complete success. She is very kind and listens and answers your concerns.

  • Sep 05, 2019

    Dr. Kuo was very attentive, knowledgeable, gentle, and helpful throughout this entire process. She called less than 24 hours after [Name] MRI to give me the results, which was unexpected and impressive. I appreciate that she was genuinely interested in [Name] and our family and willing to give us the time we needed, never rushing us or making us feel as though she had another case to attend to (when we knew she did!).

    Just wow. The Dr. Kuo was very thorough and explained everything well. I can tell she loves helping others and is very knowledgeable of her craft. My experience with her and her staff has been excellent.

  • Jul 30, 2019

    The doctor took her time to fully explain my condition, the risks and benefits of surgery, and allowed me to ask more questions without rushing me through the appt. It was a very pleasant experience and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to my family, friends and neighbors.

    Dr. Kou is great. She’s very helpful and goes above and beyond in her care for her patients.

  • Jun 29, 2019

    Very infornative

  • Jun 28, 2019

    Hello. I thought Dr. Annie was great with our child. It was probably one of the best experiences we've had with our child at a doctor's office. We're very appreciative of it. So, thank you very much.

  • Jun 28, 2019

    It was ok. Dr. Kuo is great, but we were trying to discuss whether surgery was appropriate for my son and I didn't feel prepared, or like we had enough time and freedom to discuss it with my kids in the room. I need to follow up with questions.

  • Jun 22, 2019

    I’ve interacted with the same reception several times and she is not very friendly. She either failed to checked us in or didn’t give us instructions that we needed to check in a second time after updating our insurance so we were not called for our appointment after waiting. The rest of the staff and doctors are fantastic and my son always has a great experience there.
