Dr. Hsu was very understanding and caring
everything was a good experience. I am very confident in the doctor and people in his office.
I have had 6 surgeries in the last 3 years and by far the best experience I have had so far.
*Dr. Hsu is obviously a great surgeon. I would recommend him. Wake Forest Healthcare is fortunate to have him on staff.
Hmmm, he hung the moon maybe? <smile> enough said I think.
Without a doubt I will reccommend this doctor and his staff
Will definitely use again if need arises!
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.
