Dr.Hsaio is a very good orthopedic doctor, providing easy to understand advice and next steps in care. Surgery is not used as a first and best option unless it is warranted. His emphasis is more on non surgical methods such as injections and physical therapy to manage the condition.

Overall very satisfied with my appointment. Dr.gave me multiple options and voiced his concerns.

February 11, 2020
Great choice if you're having shoulder surgery. My second one went even better than the first, both within 10 months of each other.
February 11, 2020
This was definitely a 10. I am most happy with the doctor
February 11, 2020
This was my first appointment. So far so good. Doctor was very professional and seemed very confident in what he was doing. At this point I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. I received a shot (step one ) and will go from there. If that does not work he will schedule me for and MRI.

Very nice and knowledgeable doctor.
January 09, 2020
I've had 5 major surgeries. I've never met a surgeon who was as rushed and disinterested as this one. I'm allergic to every pain medication made,from aspirin to morphine. I asked him, twice, what he planned to do about this, as I was scheduling shoulder replacement surgery. This was the most important question I needed to ask him. Twice, he completely ignored me. He simply blew me off. I left with no answer. The only thing he was apparently interested in was scheduling the surgery. You know, billable hours. I'm a paralegal and know all about billable hours. Well, he is going to have to find someone else to bill, because I'm cancelling the surgery as soon as you open this morning. I would never go to a surgeon who is this rushed for time. Those kind of surgeons make serious mistakes. I absolutely do not trust this doctor, and will never go to him again.
January 08, 2020
Keep doing what you're doing! Had a great experience with you guys. You're the best.
January 06, 2020
That he is very knowledgeable in his field. I needed to have shots in my knees but had put off going because I was afraid to have it done. But it didn't hurt that much. Won't be afraid to go back if needed.
December 31, 2019
Dr Hsaio listens to his patients, answers questions with easy explanations, is empathetic and best of all gives painless injections.
December 30, 2019
Well honestly a doctor that only looks at X-ray and never examined me is someone I don't want to see again. For all the X-rays they took I wished he would have reviewed them with me As stated for all the pain I have it's hard to accept that nothing is going on
December 09, 2019
1st visit with this Dr.
December 04, 2019
Dr. Hsiao is an experience orthopedic surgeon willing to do the more difficult surgeries. Thank goodness for him.
November 26, 2019
Dr is great. Always so polite and willing to answer questions
November 26, 2019
Dr. Hsiao was such an attentive and obviously concerned doctor. He went beyond what would be expected in my care and helped me far more than other doctors I had seen. Before meeting him, I didn't care much at all about which Dr. I'd be seeing but he is definitely a stand out and used his knowledge and skill to really help me.
November 19, 2019
He was pleasant courteous and willing to listen. I could tell he was very busy but I still felt he was focused on me when he was with me and I appreciated that. I liked him and the. Young man working closely with him. I felt I can trust him.
November 19, 2019
This doctor is excellent!!!
November 13, 2019
Dr. Hsiao explains and does a thorough examination in a way that a patient can understand. He knows what he's doing and is very experienced.
November 13, 2019
Dr. Hsiao is extremely competent and experienced in sports and age-related injuries and repair. I ask questions, he answers. I make suggestions based on my research and if appropriate, he will do the best procedure for the best outcome. A high degree of confidence makes the outcome of a second surgery more likely to be successful.
November 06, 2019
Outstanding provider. Cares about patients health and the importance of continuing to move.
November 05, 2019
