SHC Patient, Jun 2018

This is in my dealing with the physician. He was very helpful in making me understand why I needed further testing.

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

my only concern is that, given I am now scheduled for additional test, I was not informed what the range of possible outcomes would be. not a big deal, but it leaves me worrying.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr. also looked in my ears and removed ear wax. I was not even in there for a problem with my ears, so this was a nice bonus. It was easy and efficient, and helpful.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Dr Hsieh is very friendly and knowledgeable. he is thorough with my many ENT issues from my allergies

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

I did not feel like I was listened to. I did not feel that my concerns were addressed. My problem is still present, but I was continually told "it's fine". I wish more tests were done to address different conditions and circumstances which my problem would arise. I felt like the tests were rushed so as to move on to the next patient.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

excellent doctor

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Good experience. Consultation about ongoing hearing loss and need for new hearing devices.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

dr Hsieh is the best. so caring

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

I had a problem with my insurance in regards to prescriptions. The doctor worked hard to solve my problem.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

established patient of group. always had good experience.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

If I make an appointment, I am legally and morally obligated to be on time, in order to receive treatment. I am dismayed that the agreement does not seem reciprocal.
