    Dr. Hsu is an amazing person. Called me to inform me that my blood tests were irregular – even after I had stopped see her as a doctor! It was truly appreciated.

    After waiting for 8 months and being sent to 5 different hospitals, seeing dozens of doctors, and going through numerous tests; I finally found Dr. Hsu. She was very knowledgeable and performed my surgery the very same day that I saw her! I would recommend her to anyone!

    Dr. Katherine Hsu was able to fix me where other surgeon messed up! I may not recover completely (God willing I will someday, somehow) from the mishap of meeting a surgeon whose sole purpose of existence is “possibly money and/or learning as he goes”. Since after Dr. Hsu fixed my conditon properly, somehow gives me comfort whenever I feel pain and discomfort ( and the awful nasty scar)brought about by the previous unnecessary surgery. Dr. Hsu takes time to listen and gives you honest feedback. It’s worth the wait – time well spent.
