Dr Hsueh will always hold a special place in my heart. I had melanoma cancer on my leg. From my 1st appointment he was very compassionate and reassuring. My surgery went extremely well and I have been cancer free since. He saved my life. Amazing Dr and staff.

You get a good vib from the initial visit that he has a good back round treating melanoma. Very good bedside manner. Referred me to other doctors concerning other medical issues without being asked.

Dr Hsueh literally saved my life, removing stage 4 melanoma, which had spread to my lymph glands, from my body. He shows compassion and is available at all times to answer questions. Dr Hsueh is also very aware of how his patients are cared for while in the hospital, and is not afraid to act in. the best interests of his patient!

will do the most extensive procedure possible weather you need it or not to use you as teaching tool. Does NOT explain the side affects of surgery. He did a lymphoid biopsy and 2 yrs later my neck side of my face and head have very bad nerve damage. side of my neck still swells up and is very painful. can not sue him because I did not die. Just like most doctors out to get every dime they can get and does not give a crap weather they help or not. would not recommend at all.

My dad is 90, and Dr. Hsueh performed surgery to remove a tumor and used his extra skin to sew him back up, WITHOUT a skin graft, under a local (SO imp for seniors.) Dr. Hsueh is SO GOOD, my Dad did not take even one pain pill. Other dr's said dad needed radiology, or just let the tumor keep growing because it was close to the spine, but Dr. Hsueh not only did exactly the right thing, he explained it all to us in his office before he did it. He was clear, and patient, and is truly a great dr.

Dr Hsueh is simply the best. I was diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and was only 32 years old. It was a very scary time for myself and my family. Dr Hsueh explained everything in great detail. He called me from out of town on more than one occasion to discuss test results with me. He really cares about his patients. I would recommend him to anyone.

He is very concern for his patients, he is very honest. He has done many surgeries on me, and there is no one else I would ever want to use for a Dr. I respect him very much.
