I liked the treatment in general
May 12, 2021
I liked that I was given options before surgery was suggested- I've been to other orthopedic dr's but my visit with Dr Hsiao showed he cares about his patients. Medical assistants were professional. From the moment I walked in the one who took my temperature and reception staff were friendly yet professional.

The doctor, this is my second time visiting him, the first time, he really treated my pain wonderfully and this time he did the same thing and I really am... I'm better off having seen him then not having seen him. And I would go to him again when I have... feel the need to do so.

I was recommended by physical therapist to see dr hsiao. He was pretty busy and in and out frequently. The cortisol shot was not given by him but the PA. I am still in pain overnight and not knowing this is normal or something likely need to return to see him again. No explanation!!! I wonder why PIH keeping him that busy or he was running behind with schedule.

March 22, 2021
Not too happy with my visit. I feel I was rushed when I still had questions and concerns. At that point my doctor was out in the hallway when I was not done asking my questions. I take my health very serious as well as my doctor visits. Very unsatisfied.

Passing through the Parking meter was a nightmare! Cars piled up behind me as I tried to pay my fee. Fortunately, a PIH employee finally came to help. One problem is that I cannot retrieve my credit/debit card because it is too far in...
March 15, 2021
Last week I have my the last appointment. I would I got there early. I got to wait 30 minutes for them to call me and then they put me in a room and in the room. I wait 45 minutes for the doctor to come and see me and finally when he came here spend no more than 5 minutes with me. I'm disappointment. I'm thinking of changing my doctor. Thank you. Bye.

February 25, 2021
Yes, the doctor was extremely professional, very caring, very concerned about my my situation with my knees. All the staff was extremely friendly. I felt very welcome. I felt very much that everyone was concerned about my well being. I was extremely impressed. They did a fantastic job. I look forward to seeing my doctor again. Thank you.

The front desk staff booked my appointment with a different doctor by mistake and wanted me to come back 5 1/2 hrs later when the correct doctor had an opening. I told them absolutely not. We had come early to get my sons cast off and would not be going back home and coming back later to help them correct their mistake. I told them to let me see whatever doctor the appointment was made for and they didn't want to do that until I insisted. I think they were trying to get me to change appointments to avoid telling the doctors about their mistake. They made us sit in the waiting room for 25 additional minutes. We watched 5 people get called back who came after us.
February 25, 2021

Other than sometimes waiting for up to 5 days without medications being filled. While being in severe pain and not being able to due basics to get around can be frustrating this office and all PIH drs and staff are the best in my experience! ??

January 20, 2021
I have been a long time patient with PIH Health and I always return back to make other medical appointment with PIH Health provider because I get the best treatment and outcome from my visits.
January 12, 2021
Due to how busy the Doctor was, the wait time was WAY WAY to long. I did not get seen for almost an hour after my scheduled apt time. If I did not need to see the Dr for my post Op surgery I would have left. No one should have to wait that long.
January 12, 2021
I just want to give Dr. Hsiao a compliment. I wish all doctors carried themselves and handled themselves and were as thorough as Dr. Hsiao. And I appreciate him. Thank you.
January 11, 2021
PIH Health has shown respect, care and concern for their patients. Once again, I was satisfied with all of the staff members along with the doctors that assisted me on that particular day. You know they care about their patients when they remember pervious days on another issue, that they have seen you and they ask how things are going and what how they can help with the reason you have come in to assist you again. I always feel comfortable and they always have my back at all times.

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.
