I had a nose cyst surgery by Doctor Abraham Hsieh. Now I have a full recovery and I start to enjoy my natural and simple breathing everyday. I started to practice deep breathing exercise a week ago. It is only possible because of non-blocking breathing. Doctor Hsieh,as I said before,you are my savior. I feel grateful to you.

The administration of this practice is a mess. Current system, in place a whole year already, cant access any records of old system which is where mine are. Staff either ignores FAX requests from medical supply companies for Medicare required certification or fall down a black hole. Dr. Hsieh's reaction when I discussed all this indicated that he didn't care. His attitude is unacceptable. In my opinion this reflects in a bad way on Dr. Hsieh and I recommend AGAINST seeing him for anything.
