Dr Hsou was so humble and caring. Despite his busy schedule he took time to explain the procedure done in a clear and concise manner. He was accommodating and attentive to questions asked. Prior to my surgery he was reassuring which gave me confidence, faith and trust in him. I thank him for his compassion, kindness and expertise. May God bless him. The staff were friendly, helpful and caring. I was seen on time. Dr Hsou even reached out to inform me right away as to the results of the lab tests.

Derrick Lee – Aug 05, 2021
Dr. Shou is an amazing surgeon! He performed my gallbladder removal surgery. During my visit at the Cornell ED, his bedside manners and medical knowledge was very impressive; not once we felt rushed. I was reluctant to have the surgery right away. He reassured me and took the time to explain the short term and long term benefits and risks to make my own decision. Once I was ready for discharge from ER, he made sure I was contacted for the follow-up visit within 30 mins before My departure. How amazing is that? I chose to have the surgery as an outpatient. Everything went smoothly and as planned. He was even considerate of creating as little scars as possible. He also made sure his staffs provided outstanding services from arranging the procedure down to the recovery process. Thank you so much to Dr. Shou and his team!

Virtual visit was very effective and efficient. It was the first time utilizing the virtual visit but I would recommend it. We were able to accomplish everything in a few minutes. Without travel and sitting in a waiting room.

Dr. Shou is excellent. He drew out an explanation of what was going to happening during my surgery. I was impressed that he could freehand my internal organs. He is calming, knowledgeable, patient, and experienced. After my surgery, he went to speak to my family and he visited me in the recovery room. If you need gall bladder surgery, this is the surgeon you want!
