Don't suffer from nasal problems. If you're dealing with miserable nose and sinus issues get to Dr. Kuan asap. I suffered for a very long time. My first visit to an ENT Specialist resulted in shrinking polyps in my sinuses. That helped for awhile but as we all know, they regrow and you must repeat the process. I wasn't 100% pleased with my first ENT and eventually found another about 3 years ago. They made me feel like they were more interested in upselling me on services than just fixing my problem. So I postponed until I couldn't stand my progressively worsening sinuses any longer. I did online research and checked with my GP who has another patient who had just been fixed by Dr. Kuan so I went to see him.Immediately Dr. Kuan and his staff made me believe they were very good at their specialty and on top of managing my health. Their follow up is timely and professional and Dr. Kuan explains all issues and options thoroughly. I finally had sinus surgery including septoplasty. I can't even remember when I could breathe so freely and such volume of air. This so far has been a quality of life changing procedure and I'm earnestly grateful for everything Dr. Kuan and his staff and the other doctors who attended my surgery have done to restore my ability to breathe normally.
I am truly impressed with Dr. Edward Kuan. He is kind, caring and has a good heart with his expertise and knowledge. He also takes time to think and focus on me as a patient despite his busy schedule. He truly cares for me as a patient and as an individual. Dr. Edward Kuan is the higher standard of health care. I hope his example will be the future of medical industry!
This doctor agreed to see me after the UCI scheduling department totally messed up my appointment with a different doc. Dr Kuan stepped in and turned a terrible situation into a blessing. Kuan is an outstanding ENT specialist---not only did he address the issue, but he taught me things I did not know. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind, and caring. I am so happy that a scheduling fiasco ended with my seeing Dr. Kuan. A real stroke of luck.
Dr. Kuan is fantastic. I have seen many doctors and specialists over the last month and I think he was the most friendly and competent. He took time to explain, did not rush in any way, and listened to my needs and concerns attentively. I would highly recommend Dr. Kuan to anyone needing excellent care.
