in chicago, il |
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.

Wood Dale, IL |
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
Wood Dale, IL |
After the ime workmans comp decided through him that I could do light-duty restrictions of 20 pound lifting even though he noticed my left arm was in pain when he tried lifting it I was going to therapy that my therapist noticed the pain in my left arm and he diagnosed there was a second injury separate from the two herniated disc in my neck my doctor said that I have to get an MRI my doctor recommended need to be off until the shoulder was investigated

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.
