I haven't yet finished my diagnostic tests so my treatment options have not yet been fully discussed as the specifics of my disease are still in question.

I live 100 miles north of San Francisco. The convenience and quality of the appointment was very reassuring especially at this "virus ridden" time.

Dr Guo is an excellent provider. I would recommend her to anyone needing a neurologist for MS. She is compassionate and I feel like my health and wellbeing really matter when I talk to her. I feel comfortable talking to her and confident in the treatment she provides and suggests.

At first the sound kept cutting out - I think due to a poor internet connection on my side. But it seemed to work well after.

Dr.Guo is an excellent Doctor. She is easy to talk to and an outstanding listener. Even though I never thought I would be here she has supported me with accepting my diagnosis. It is a very painful journey yet she wants to make sure I am as comfortable as possible in managing my pain Bottom line I will get better I just do not know when.

With what I can remember and reconstruct from conversations with my wife and father: Wow! What an intelligent and knowledgeable provider as well as everyone I was fortunate to interact with. I feel very fortunate. I would love to spend more time with any of the providers I interacted with and pick their brain about MS my experience with the disease the current research and technology available for treatments. This was my first visit and my father was with me. My wife was also welcomed via speaker phone so she could ask questions and remember some things for me also. I do have some medical background and experience and I knew enough to understand the majority of was being said by the provider(s). What I did not know I knew I could ask or research later on my own. I was having a bad day from my condition during my first visit and with everything that was happening we were overwhelmed and confused. I ended up missing out part of the referrals I was supposed to go to. I was told that was understandable and could be done during my next appointment. I was unable to go through the end of the appointment summary. On a side note; I am very much looking forward to the next visit. My father and I stayed the previous night and we are not from the area. The experience of driving in San Francisco is overwhelming enough and now we know we should have planned on staying a second night and expect to be at the facility longer.

Dr. Guo was thorough thoughtful and comprehensive. She came across has a real expert. I was felt very cared for and taken seriously. I did not know what to expect as my previous provider did not have many of these qualities. It was very relieving and comforting to have such an excellent appointment. I am really grateful to have Dr. Guo as my new provider. Please pass along a big thank you & gratitude to Dr. Guo!

Dr. Guo is the 5th neurologist I have been assigned to in the past 3 years. I would like to experience a continuity of care from my neurologist.

great Doctor!

Dr Guo is always thorough and extremely thoughtful in how she works with me and my disease. She listens to me and confirms with me that all my questions have been answered. She offers a framework to help me understand my disease and disease progression that I can understand. It gives me a lot of positive mental support to have her on my care team.

Dr. Guo is an incredible Doctor.
May 06, 2019
Very good listener and knowledgeable doctor.I hope she's here to stay!it's been very hard the past 2-3 years with doctors leaving so often!

Dr. Guo provided excellent thorough professional care. Unfortunately my symptoms are mysterious and don't present on standard neurological workups which is frustrating for both doctor and patient. Having a senior physician ([name redacted]) stop by and render a second opinion was very valuable. Two nervous systems are better than one when analyzing complex evolving conditions like mine.

We did not discuss the results of my most recent MRI (with and without contrast).
