I was recommended by a friend due to knee pain. The office was very accommodating in my needing to come in earlier than my scheduled time. The office was clean and pleasant. The staff was excellent and we discussed what kindof injection I would be getting and the time it would last. The doctor was amazing! He was attentive and listened to my concerns and gave me a treatment plan as well as what would happen if the injection didn’t alleviate all my pain. I love this office. I will be going back for my other knee in the near future. They treated me so well, I was not rushed, I felt like a person and not like they just wanted to take my money and rush me out. I recommend this office to anyone with knee pain or joint pain.

I have constant chronic pain of my back. I have gone to other doctors and no doctor could help. When I went to this office I can't say enough. They took care of me and I left the office with anew look on life. The office is new and its beautiful. They are in the right business,

Dr. Kuo was very rude. Upon explaining my condition he was very cold personality wise and asked what did I expect them to do. I suffered from chronic pain and wanted to know what he could do. I choose him becauseof his hi 5 star rating. But I got 1 star treatment. The medicine that I told him didn't work was prescribed once again and today I changed doctors due to his treatment of me. I felt very uncomfortable.

They didn't realize I even had an appointment on their end before I called to let them know the traffic was bad and I would be tardy. The response was "oh we have to confirm the appointments via a phone callfor ZocDoc patients..." implying mine wasn't confirmed (which is was confirmed via zocdoc). Other than that speed bump, everything was great and everyone from the front desk to the nurse to the doctor straight through was pleasant. That is rare! It made up for the appointment mishap entirely. Also I dig the wellness vibe at the office space!

Highly NOT recommended!! My appointment was 2.5 hours for a consultation and treatment. After describing my pain to 3 different people, I finally received treatment. I was given an epidurel without my knowledge and given all kinds of samplemeds without discussing side effects and its use. The front office is really unprofessional. I was told "Your insurance sucks" and needed payment in full right away without confirming with my insurance on coverage. Now I feel it will take a miracle to receive a refund on a charge that my insurance will pay. The billing department has no interest in calling my insurance to correct the problem either.

I have struggled with chronic pain for almost six years now, due to Endometriosis and IBS, and until I found Dr. Kuo no one would take me seriously. Dr. Kuo is an extremely kind, knowledgeable, out-of-the-box thinking doctor and I couldn'task for more. He marries eastern and western medicine harmoniously. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who feels stuck or disenchanted. As a 31 year old female artist, I have encountered far too many doctors who judged me based solely on my appearance and didn't actually believe me that I was in genuine, serious pain. Dr. Kuo is a remarkable exception. He did not judge me on my "artistically funky" appearance, nor did he see me as drug seeking, which was a breath of fresh air. I highly recommend him to everyone, but particularly to young-ish females who have had trouble getting doctors to take them seriously. All the Hudson Wellness staff are wonderful and I cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Kuo and his practice!!

Extremely attentive, respectful, professional, helpful, really listens even when I ramble about my problems— the entire office is wonderfully nice, supremely clean and organized-seeming, and Dr. Kuo as well as the other doctors, physicaltherapists, nutritional consultant, everybody seems genuinely interested in helping people, one has the impression the staff was hand-picked and very carefully. everyone there is just as pro as it gets yet somehow utterly chill, not at all stiff [much unlike myself ha]

All they care is about money! No wonder why they have such a fancy facility... When I told the Doctor Kuo about my pain, he told me to do an injection right away, Epidural Steroid Injection. When I ask about PhysicalTherapy, he told me "Im the boss of this facility and your insurance doesn't pay enough" ... But before I saw him I asked receptionist if they accept Fidelis for PT, and she confirmed. Will never recommend this Doctor to anyone.

Super pro. He's the top guy there, very busy, yet is completely attentive, knowledgeable, prudent in regard to prescriptions — and he seems genuinely concerned about his patients and everything going on there. this is the more advanced levelthat didn't seem to exist when I was a kid. I highly recommend Dr. Kuo and literally everyone I have encountered on his staff.

Dr. Kuo is simply great! I have heard absolute horror stories about how some pain management doctors treat patients, especially younger women, poorly, dismiss their pain, and/or do not care enough to listen. Dr. Kuo is NOT that kind of doctor!He immediately put me at ease with his calm disposition and dry sense of humor. Dr. Kuo stands out precisely because of his humanity. He also is really smart, which sadly is not the case with all doctors. Also, the PA was a great listener and really astute! As for the front desk staff, they are all super nice, super kind and understanding...and, just super!

This is the best doctor I have found through Zocdoc or that I have seen in the US for that matter. Dr. Kuo has a great bedside manner, is very friendly, understanding and treated me like a human being in needof medication to control my pain which is very rare these days for chronic pain patients, especially when they are female. I went to my appointment with very low expectations despite the good reviews and left greatly impressed. The clinic environment was super nice, modern and extremely clean, and every single employee I interacted with seemed truly happy to be working there and very nice and helpful. I will definitely go back.

TERRIBLE! I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a few years ago after many many years of constant testing and Dr. Kuo used air quotes every time he said Fibromyalgia as if it wasn't a real disease. Stigma is the hardest part ofhaving Fibro, and believe me the pain and fatigue are killer alone, and he made me feel very bad about myself and just wasted my time.
