I was blessed to have Dr. Tsai repair the macular hole in my left eye. Although I was extremely apprehensive about the vitrectomy, Dr. Tsai was very calming and understanding. The surgery and recovery went great. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Tsai and his team to anyone with retinal needs.

Dr. Tsai is one of the nicest doctors I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. He is kind, compassionate, thorough and extremely knowledgeable. I had major anxiety going into my appointment and Dr. Tsai was so nice through the entire visit and was very reassuring. The staff is great! There was a lot of imaging that needed to be done so that part was time consuming but everyone was thorough and efficient. Fantastic experience with Dr. Tsai and his staff.

I have been seeing Dr. Tsai for several years now and and he has had to do laser surgery on my retinas twice. In each and every visit, Dr. Tsai has been very thorough and has taken the time to explain everything he is doing and he makes sure that any questions I might have are answered. I'm fortunate that Dr. Tsai is close by, but I would definitely be willing to travel much further to see him because of his confidence and great manner - I have the upmost confidence in him.

Dr. Tsai is an outstanding medical professional. He does a very thorough exam and takes the time to explain the alternative treatments with no pressure to the patient to make a decision if surgery of the eye is required. He also does excellent follow up exams post-surgery to make sure that I was recuperating well and improving my vision. the staff and nurses are very courteous and nice to deal with. I highly recommend Dr. Tsai.

I saw Dr Tsai for the first time this today. He was both knowledgeable and extremely professional and easy to speak with. His exam seemed thorough and he has an excellent staff, also very competent and comfortable to speak with. I have no issues recommending their referral. (My concern is regarding a spot located at the back of a retina.) Glad to have been referred by my Opthamoligist! Feel as if I am carefully being overviewed!

Dr. Tsai is on time, professional, friendly and compassionate. I have had multiple shots in one eye and that is ALWAYS a stressful experience. Dr. Tsai makes it as pleasant as possible. Luckily he has helped me improve to the point I have not required a shot in several years now!

I just had Vitrectomy surgery to repair a macular hole two weeks ago. I had a lot of anxiety going in for the surgery but from the moment I entered the building on Greenback Lane, everyone was so wonderful! Dr. Tsai and all of the staff were so friendly and competent, explaining everything that was going to happen in great detail, my anxiety soon disappeared. The drugs probably helped a bit, too! :) I just had my first follow-up with Dr. Tsai and my eye is doing really well! Excellent job!!
