As usual the Doctor and the staff were courteous and made me feel at ease and comfortable before and after my treatment. Even on days that Dr. Kuo is very busy he always try to make time to see me. I am very grateful to Dr. Kuo and Dr. Ramses also In whom I have the utmost trust.

I was seen even though I was late almost right away. I had a new problem and they treated me for it and the problem went away. Since being treated by Dr. Kuo and his staff my life has been so much better. I thank Dr. Kuo and his staff for giving me a less painful life back.

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 because of 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 call for 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 sample meds 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.

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 Physical Therapy, 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.

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!

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't ask 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!!

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 level that didn't seem to exist when I was a kid. I highly recommend Dr. Kuo and literally everyone I have encountered on his staff.

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 need of 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 of having 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.
