I have Epilepsy, and for all my life I had seizures. Wasn’t diagnosed till age 25. I was told that meds couldn’t help me, too much damage had already been done. To lower the amount of seizures I had, surgery was recommended. “It could possibly lower your seizures by up to 40%”. This looked promising to me. All attempts with meds failed. I was averaging 14 seizures a week. Dr. Hsu performed a temporal lobectomy on me a little over 3 and a half years ago on me. I’ve been seizure free ever since.

I was referred to Dr. Hsu by our Medical group doctor. Dr. Hsu was highly recommended. He was very honest with us and didn't sugar-coat anything. He saved my life, for which I will always grateful.

Did not do adequate follow up on nph. Patient condition deteriorated.. Office staff made critical errors in scheduling critical appointment, delaying urgent care for 2 weeks. Patient may not recover as a result.
