Specialties

Dr. Michael Z Guo has the following 3 specialties

  • Neuromuscular Medicine
  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

My excellent medical care with Dr. Guo

I am currently receiving treatment by Dr. Guo for severe back injury and neck injury from a car accident on November 2017. I was in chronic pain with numbness and right sided weakness and difficulty ambulating after impact injury from car accident. After meeting with Dr. Guo he ordered the correct diagnostic tests to determine the proper treatment to treat my injuries. I am impressed with his professional demeanor and knowledge base and his treatments from nerve blocks to a unique form of acupuncture have dramatically improved my ability to walk again with less numbness and pain. I continue to improve with each treatment and look forward to being able to one day resume my role as an oncology nurse hopefully free of the whiplash symptoms from my accident. His staff are very pleasant, helpful and efficient in running his office. His office is very welcoming and patient friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Quo as an excellent neurologist and pain management specialist.

What a relief!

I had back pain since last year, and tried epidural steroid with no improvement. My primary dr referred me to Dr Guo and he did prolo zone injection (a type of regenerative medicine) for me and I have had substantial improvement after one treatment. What a relief!

Miracle

I had refractory vomiting for 5 years, and all GI workup was negative. I lost lots of weight, and was completely dysfunctional, until I met Dr Guo. He made diagnosis of autonomic dysfunction and started IV Steroid treatment for me. Within 2 cycles, my symptoms went away! I am so happy after all these years of torture, someone finally helped me! Dr Guo is a great physician and I highly recommend him!
