I feel I am getting very good medical care.


*Dr. Hsu showed me on the x-rays and MRI what was going on with my spine and he wrote down the information to go on the internet to see another lady that had the same problem as me.


The doctor wasted my time and the doctor had I don't care attitude about my condition.


Nothing short of excellent care, competent people through-out


Dr Hsu showed no sign of being in a hurry on my visits. all questioning was answer and re answer to ensure I understood the task at hand.


Very good.
