Easy manner and very efficent. Drove home from procedure to close vein in left leg from injury. Will do right leg for cosmetic issue. No pain at all or bruisung. Amazing! Other dancers have used him with same results.

Incredibly caring, plain spoken, and really wants to help. I have scheduled surgery with him for treatment of Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome and thank God I found him. After 6 GIs who had no idea what was wrong with me, I was blessed to get his name. I sent him my CT scans and he looked at them and phoned me immediately and explained what he saw. You can't go wrong with this Dr. HE CARES! Thank God that once in a while, you find a surgeon like this one. Dena in the office is incredible.

Patient, kind and caring I felt like I mattered as a person. I had two procedures done by Dr. Hsu and all I can say is it was an excellent experience, he fixed the issues with my veins and I am happy with the results. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Hsu is the most incredible physician. He is a brilliant diagnostician and diagnosed and cured me with Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome. He truly saved my life as my body was shutting down from malnourishment. His surgery was curative and I am 100% perfect again. He is my hero and I think he is the BEST doctor on this planet. He is so compassionate and cares about his patients. He is kind and sympathetic. He is number one in my book and I owe him my life!

Dr Hsu is one of the most caring and competent Drs I have had. I had back surgery for my pain while walking. The back surgerty was not the answer. I then saw Dr Hsu who determined the cause of my pain was A blockage on each iliac artery. It went off without a hitch. I was home the same day and followed up with Dr Hsu post surgery. He was as happy as I was. Unfortunately I went back a few weeks ago a nd I was told he is on leave. I am so disappointed that I have to see a new Dr.

Richard is an amazing person and surgeon. Count on him to do whatever it takes to better one's life circumstances. If, by chance I or anyone in my circle ever again is in need of medical attention in the specialty areas of practice where Dr. Hsu is expert; without a doubt I will be in his office. James Scesa
