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.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Have always enjoyed excellent service at this facility and with this doctor.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Kind and efficient.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

Excellent doctor - Very calm, thorough, knowledgeable and kind.

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

he made me very comfortable and trusting that I'm in good hands

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

After making me wait 20 minutes past my appointment time, the Dr acted impatient like he just needed to rush to the next appointment. he did not seem to care about what I was saying to him and he, in fact, cut me off mid sentence and walked away while I was speaking. I don't care if he's heard the same thing a million times, I as his patient want him to carefully listen to me and give me the attention I deserve. he obviously had other more important things on his mind. I will never go back to see him again. Dr Hseih, I believe. I apologize if I misspelled it. I asked about two problems, he only addressed one and I made him stay a little longer to ask a couple more questions because he made me wait and it was obvious he wanted to run off to his next appointment. I would not recommend him.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

I visited Dr. Hsieh for a second opinion for an ongoing Sinus/Allergy related issue. He was thorough in his investigation on my past history and offered detailed information on my condition and included me in a treatment plan.
