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.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

Dr. Helen F. Kuo is an amazing doctor, thank you for her services.

I was very happy with Dr, Kuo she really helped me get through a difficult foot surgery. Everythung went pretty smoothly overall

Helen Kuo has kept my feet healthy - Kept them from being amputated. Has change my foot care 100%. I am grateful for her care.

She's been a great specialist and very helpful to comfort my pain and shows she cares for her patients

I wanted her to ob. more about the issue I was having.

She is an excellent doctor who is very personable and has great bedside manners. When I come to my appointment, I know I will get the best care and attention, which is important to a patient. I will leave with medical care and understanding of my health.

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.

This was my first visit to this Provider. I was pleased with the time she spent with me explaining my diagnosis and the Surgery my diagnosis will require along with scheduling a follow up Appt for me before I left the office.

Dr. Kuo has a very easy & comfortable bed side manner.

I was extremely impressed with my visit with Dr. Kuo. She is patient centered and truly cares about her patients. A truly great experience.

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.

I have a good experience with Dr. Kuo. She is very professional and careful when cutting and trimming toenails.
