Overall Dr. Kuo was very professional and pleasant. His beside manner was excellent and he was a pleasure to get to know. I'll certainly be coming back. My wait in the waiting room was only about 5 minutes, though I didhave to remind the receptionist that I had already completed all of my medical information online. The waiting room was pleasant and not too crowded and the staff seemed very polite and professional. My only concern was that I waited for 30-35min in the small doctor's office after having my blood pressure checked. My appointment was at 8:30 with only one patient ahead of me. I would expect to not wait more than 10-15 minutes at that time. Overall I will certainly come back, though I will be certain to take the first slot in the morning.

The 1st time I went to his practice it was just for a flu shot and it was great. The 2nd and last time which was January 2013, I was hoping to find a good family doctor to start going toregularly. It was awkward situation seemed to be disinterested in what I had to say and just referred be elsewhere. Not what I was looking for.

Having relocated to Houston a little over a year ago, this was the first time I have needed to see a primary care physician since making the move. I reviewed all of the doctors listed in ZocDoc and selected Dr. Kuowith my decision based primarily on the reviews from his patients posted on the site. When I arrived at his office, his staff was polite, courteous, and guided me through the new patient process quickly. I arrived for my appointment about 30 minutes early - rather than make me wait for my appointment time, they took me back and got the process started about 15 minutes prior to my scheduled appointment. When I met with Dr. Kuo a few minutes later, I was blown away by the level of care he provided. He took the time to listen to the reasons for my visit, asked great questions, and provided even better feedback. Simply put - I cannot say enough great things about my visit, and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone in need of a primary care physician.
