I can only relay positive experiences with Dr. Hsu even in difficult times. He has always helped me and made me feel more than just another patient. As a patient , I actually feel that he has actual concern about my well being and that makes me Want to improve. Doctor Hsu has been a true healer/physician while dispensing a sense of humor even while you wear a humiliating open backed gown. Providence is fortunate to have him and his staff.

I really felt like I used my provider to get referrals to other providers that will DO SOMETHING. I do not understand the point of wellness visits and probably wont ever schedule one of those again. If I need urgent care I usually have to go to urgent care.

Dr. Hsu listens and responds to my concerns and needs, makes referrals when appropriate, and is AWAYS caring and polite. He is very efficent but not at the cost of a warm and friendly manner. Dr. Hsu never keeps patients waiting and gives feedback from tests and phone questions as soon as they are available. My Chart comunications are responded to within the same day.

Dr. Hsu always listens carefully to me. Last visit I was ill and had lots to discuss even without that. I was prepared with written notes, but still rambled on and was flustered. He focused, listened very carefully, read my notes and worked with me and the notes. he was very kind about it as he always is.

I have always had excellent care from Dr. Hsu. One of the best attributes I appreciate is, that as my primary care physician he isn't afraid to tackle anything within his comfort area. But also isn't afraid to pass me to a specialist when it isn't in his comfort area. It gives me confidence, in him, to put my health in his hands.
