Dr. W. Hsu seen me today 5/15/2017. I was very impressed with his schooling and from the referring Dr. who referred me. Dr. Hsu was extremely thorough on explanation and showing me on the MRI what he was referring to. He did not recommend surgery but injections instead from the anesthesia Department. I am one VERY happy patient. Val Look~

Dr. Hsu took excellent care of me. My arm had become weak and hand was numb from a cervical disc problem. I was in a tremendous amount of pain. Dr. Hsu arranged a quick surgery -as soon a possible and even came in on his non surgery day to help correct my problem. I feel so much better and the strength is coming back in my arm. He was very attentive and did a fabulous job. I would highly recommend! He told me exactly what to expect and my surgery and recovery were exactly as he explained.

MRI to my shoulder reveals to tears my rotary cuff but dr. Hsu didn't catch it when he gave me the Ime he recommended light-duty with 20-pound limitations which probably would have damaged shoulder even more

I saw Dr Hsu for an IME for workers comp. He was very friendly. I would recommend him to anyone, he seemed to really care about the patient. I know that an IME, is not suppose to be friendly but he seemed to really care.
