Dr. K treated me in a conservative manner, as per my request after he carefully explained all the options. I plan to see Dr. K for other procedures in the future, such as fillers. I estimate I saw him six times although I know the same results could be achieved faster if was willing to deal with bruising. I did not want any downtime and I was able to accomplish very good results - simply took a bit more time. Well worth it and my choice! He was never pushy and always honest in his assessment of my condition - he even reminded me that not everyone may see these imperfections as much as I do. Excellent doctor.

My daughter (psoriasis), my wife (mole removal, and myself are patients of Dr. Kuo. He essentially cured our daughter's psoriasis and his periodic body checks of myself and my wife are always thorough. He is without a doubt one of the kindest and most gentle of doctors.

Dr. is fine once you eventually get to see him.

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm
I had Juvederm placed under my eyes incorrectly 2 years ago by a very unskilled doctor. The puffiness never went down and I always looked tired. I made an appointment to see Dr. K and he reassured me that he can make me look like myself again. He injected a substane called Vitrase. He has such a gentle touch that I didn't even feel it. Right before my eyes the swellling literally disappeared. Dr. K is an AMAZING doctor, he has a very gentle and quiet demeanor but he's extremely knowledgeable and I will only trust my face to him. I highly recommend him and his magical hands!
