Absolutely the best! Amazing surgeon who is also extremely compassionate and caring! My mom came out of a 3 hours high risk surgery with no pain and complications. Thank you Dr. Kuan! 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. He solved my problem in just one day.. Dr. kaun is friendly and kind.. I highly recommend him. Dr Kuan was very informative and got me the direction and advice I needed to diagnose my breathing problem. Appreciate the help!
