Dr. Kuo has been our primary care physician for years. His office is well run and friendly. We've never had thelong waits we've experienced in many specialist's offices. He's very thorough and takes the time to actually listen. I never feel that he is in a rush to get to the next patient - a rarity these days!

Had to wait for about 35/40 minutes to be seen, but in fairness it was the late afternoon so I know sometimes appointments can back up. Dr. Kuo was friendly and got me in out quickly (as I needed to get back to work).

Dr. Kuo is a very nice guy. Would appreciate some type of patient portal for sharing medical information. Also disappointed that they do not draw blood on site any longer requiring a separate lab trip.
