Professional Statement
Having been sidelined by injuries and pain in the lower extremity, Dr. Kuo is very conscious about restoring health and activity to each patient. She's a firm believer in getting the right information to the patient so they can partner with her in restoring their health. It's hard for Dr. Kuo to believe that she's been in practice for over 20 years, since she continues to enjoy seeing patients, working with resident doctors in training and giving lectures to the community about foot health. Recently, she has taken an interest and became certified as a diabetic foot wound specialist, as diabetes becomes more prevalent in the world.

She took care of me when I had another foot issue and will follow up on both problems on my next visit. She also made excellent recommendations on arch supports and footwear which immediately relieved much of my foot pain. My condition has improved significantly since my last visit.

Visits with Dr. K. are always productive, informative, and enjoyable (except for an occasional shot!). While the Doctor is obviously busy one never feels rushed or marginalized.
