We work closely with our clients to help them achieve their health goals, so that they can focus on their personal and professional goals. We design a program for each individual’s needs to return them to optimal health as quickly as possible by asking, “What’s best for the patient?”
At HealthSource, we pride ourselves on the policy that if we think we can help you (for whatever your condition may be) we will tell you; if we think we cannot, we will tell you that, too.
Below is the information you need regarding your first visit to our office, so that there are no surprises and you can go through the process worry-free. At our Healthsource Chiropractic in Pasadena, our doctor’s job is to properly diagnose your condition and provide a treatment plan that will correct your problem and provide relief from pain and lack of mobility.
Day one in our clinic is dedicated only to examining and diagnosing. We ask you allow at least 1 hour for the first visit. Please wear or bring a pair of shorts and a tank top for the functional movement screening.
When you arrive, our staff will help you fill out your initial paperwork. We will need your picture ID for your medical file. We work individually with every patient financially to ensure you can receive the treatment you need. Next, you will be asked to fill out an electronic patient history. Again, our staff will be happy to assist you in completing this. This patient history is very important because it tells Dr. Kuo how your health has been up until the second he meets you. Please be as thorough as possible.
After Dr. Kuo reviews your history, he will perform a precise spinal, orthopedic, and neurological exam to help determine the cause of your discomfort. You remain fully clothed for this, and it will give the doctor an overall view of your entire body’s wellness. X-rays may be ordered if Dr. Kuo deems it necessary. If you have had an MRI, we ask that you bring the results with you to your first visit. After this initial exam takes place, we will then schedule you a report-of-findings (ROF) visit. It is important to make this visit as soon after you initial exam and x-rays as possible.
During your second visit, Dr. Kuo will go over his exam/x-ray findings and he will outline a specific treatment plan just for your condition and its phase of severity. After he is finished, our clinic’s financial officer will sit down with you and discuss the exact out-of-pocket expenses involved with your total care. We pride ourselves on the fact that our patients do not receive “surprise” bills in the mail and we hold ourselves to a very high standard.
Last, expect to begin treatment at that second visit! After your report-of-findings we will begin the first visit in your care plan. Please feel free to ask any questions and be excited to finally be taking charge of your health!
Call 626-449-0510 to set up your first visit.

A chiropractor is a health care professional focused on the diagnosis and treatment neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine.

Pasadena Chiropractors focus on the intimate relationship between the nervous system and spine, and hold true the following beliefs:
