Dr. Tsai is an incredible doctor! He performed abdominal surgery for me after surgery and treatment by another surgeon went poorly. It was a difficult procedure that he performed admirably. It saved my life. He is skilled and takes time to collaborate with me and to answer all my questions and to chose the best course for treatment. His education, medical school, and residence results are impressive. I recommend him unequivocally. When the chips are down, Dr. Tsai performs. The staff there is good and my wait there has been 5 to 10 minutes range on average.

I would Never go there again and Never recommend him to anyone! I agree with the other review he absolutely has a God complex! Does not ask if you have any questions and does not answer the questions you do have. Is in and out within a few minutes. Was a horrible experience.

Dr Tsai saved my life! What the hospital believed to be colitis and diverticulitis was actually advanced colon cancer. Dr Tsai did exploratory surgery after things weren't improving. He found a large tumor blocking my colon and did a diverting ostomy in surgery. He pushed for me to get into oncology ASAP. Even after when he was no longer treating me, if he saw my name in hospital logs he would stop in to check my status! He truly cares about his patients and is absolutely amazing.
