I really like having Dr Tsao as my doctor.
Dr. Tsao is the best, most caring doctor I have ever had. She genuinely cares about me and has been the best advocate in my health care for the last several years. Dealing with chronic health problems, both mental and physical, for years now is very exhausting to say the least. I've had my fair share of doctors that rush in, rush out and generally increase my anxiety to the point that I don't remember the most important things to say. I can also tend to talk in ways that are not focused. I realize Dr. Tsao is on a schedule and I do my very best to speak to the point. No matter when kind of day I'm having or how hard it is to get my words out... Dr. Tsao is ALWAYS patient with me and helps me guide my thinking in a ways that I still feel my dignity. Dr. Tsao cares deeply about her patients. This has been my experience from the first day I met her till now... about 6-7 years later.
Dr Tsao is very knowledgeable and explains well. She's caring and pleasant to talk to. I am so happy and proud to say that she's my primary medical doctor.
Love Dr. Tso
