This doctor is HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE! He is so full of himself. It's sickening! I waited and waited for this unprofessional man for at least an hour while I could hear him joking with other employees right outside the door. I finally got sick of the fun he was having on my time and exited the room to get him. When he saw me, he immediately said he would be right in. He told me he didn't know why my doctor referred me and he couldn't help me and that was it..appt over. Go elsewhere!

Amazing Doctor! Highly recommend Wilson Tsai M.D. Highly educated, great surgeon, friendly, easy to talk to and seems to care about you. I'm a 42 year old male that was diagnosed with stage 3 Esophageal Cancer. I had four opinions for my medical situation from UC SF, Stanford, UC Irvine and a 4th from Dr. Wilson Tsai John Muir. The procedure I needed was an esophagectomy. Dr Tsai performed a minimally invasive esophagectomy surgery with the DaVinci robot. Lifes is good!

Dr. Tsai is a professional, friendly and intelligent man. He is compassionate and listens to us. We would recommend him without hesitation.

DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR! He was rude, disrespectful and unprofessional. He strolled in 55 minutes late, had an attitude like he was "above reproach", I asked why none of his staff informed me why, as I arrived 20 minutes early as requested and , then put in a room for 15 more. I asked why and he said how important he was. I said maybe I should pick another Doctor. He put his thumbs UP like like VICTORY and said sure just leave! A Doctor dismissing a patient without any CARE. DISGRACEFUL!

I recently had major surgery performed by Dr. Tsai with the Davinci robot and Dr. Tsai's team. In my case the surgery went very well. When first meeting Dr. Tsai my wife and I were immediately comfortable with his demeanor and his knowledge and his thoroughness. He explained to us the process and the possible out comes, some of which were less than pleasant. He was confident, but not cocky. We felt that we could trust him to do the best job possible. I would recommend him and his staff.

Dr. Tsai saved my life...literally! I was misdiagnosed for many years and on my death bed when i saw Dr. Tsai, and he immediately saw the problem then solved the problem. Today i am pill free, pain free, and finally living a normal life! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Additionally, he has the best most personable bedside manner of any doctor I've ever seen! ??

Dr Tsai is certainly a master in his field of Cardiothoracic Surgery. He is well educated, very experienced, kind and considerate. I felt at immediately ease when he began to speak and demonstrate an excellent understanding of what was going on in my body, and how to fix what was causing pain. As a clinician, I speak to all manner of medical personnel and have for over 40 years. Few have impressed me as much as Dr. Tsai.
