Dr. Kevin Kuo received his Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and Master of Science in Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine from Bastyr University. His foundation for health and wellness began developing long before his formal education. His father, a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Taiwan with more than 30 years of experience, fostered his interest in medicine since childhood. From a young age, his father instilled in him the fundamentals of health and the balance of Yin/Yang. To this day, Dr. Kuo combines his formal education with continuing mentorship from his father to help his patients achieve and maintain lifelong health.
Dr. Kuo believes in educating and helping people to establish a deeper understanding and stronger connection with their own body. The word “Doctor” originates from the Latin term “Docere”, to teach, thus teaching is one of the core Naturopathic principles Dr. Kuo aims to provide for his patients. In our modern society, the focus on symptom based treatments and labeling patients with diagnoses causes people to limit their potential healing abilities. Dr. Kuo wishes to empower and challenge everyone to break through these barriers. The key to preventing the development or progression of any disease is by maintaining a balanced lifestyle. With the skills and tools he holds, Dr. Kuo strives to help patients with various health conditions.
