I was assigned Dr Tien after the retirement of Dr Scheker. Dr Scheker had performed surgery on left hand and wrist (Scheker implant and carpal tunnel). Dr. Tien was assigned my case from my 18 month check up. He did not take the time to review my chart before the appointment. I had to tell him that I had the surgery, he thought I was there for an injection in my wrist for arthritis. He stated that we needed to conduct an ENM test to determine if my pain was from carpal tunnel, if had review

Very Very happy with the care Dr Tien gave me. He was very straight forward and answered all question before surgery and was a phone call away after surgery.

Dr. Tien is a very friendly, knowledgeable, brilliant surgeon. I have had two surgeries with Dr. Tien as my primary care provider with one more in August. After the first surgery my arm was healing very well until an infection began to develop in the pin sites from my first surgery in Thailand.

Dr.Tien performed surgery on my left hand for Dupuytren's and I couldn't have asked for a better job and healing .
