My mom is under the care of Dr. Tse. He is very kind and takes extra time to explain to my mom and myself regarding my mom's difficult kidney problem which my need dialysis support. Dr. Tse helps us to cope with the situation in a very positive way. I am lucky my mom is having such a good care provided by Dr. Tse.
