Top notch doctor.

The parking at this location is ridiculous. There is not enough parking and it is very confusing. One drives down a lane and when unable to find an empty spot finds cones at the end with no exit. It is confusing to determine what is employee/reserved parking. I drove around for 15 minutes waiting for a space to open up. When I finally arrived at the doctors office, others in line were complaining too.
June 06, 2022
Dr Andrew Hsiao and his staff are just awesome, professional and courteous and his surgery on my left total elbow has made it possible for me to gain my mobility once again after a massive injury to my left elbow. After many therapy both in and out in which I cannot be so grateful my functioning elbow is doing just great. A big thanks for Dr Hsiao and his great staff.
May 24, 2022
Have not received a answer to a simple question that I left with the office today after I saw the doctor.
May 24, 2022
Great just took a awhile to be seen.
May 18, 2022
Dr. Hsiao has always provided me with the utmost care. He has managed to be part of my team of doctors due to my autoimmune disease (Stiff Person Syndrome) which I would not have the quality of life I have.
May 17, 2022

April 27, 2022
I'm supposed to be scheduling the surgery. I still have not heard from the person that does the scheduling, but the doctor said he's 3 weeks out as far as surgeries go. The office staff never said hello. The guy at the front was ... everybody was trying to help him at look like he was new, or didn't know what he was doing. They were not very friendly or welcoming. I sat quite a while to wait for my appointment.
April 26, 2022
The only complaint I had was in regard to getting my prescription. I had asked for it to be picked up downstairs in their office however I had to go back and forth to get it taken care of as it was called into another pharmacy instead.
April 26, 2022
Doctor and staff are Very Nice and Professional
April 25, 2022
Dr. Hsiao was extremely professional and listened to everything I needed to say. He answer all my questions....he's AWESOME!
April 20, 2022
In the appointment that I had with the doctor, all the questions that I had to answer were answered and I was already satisfied and happy.
April 19, 2022
I am going to take this opportunity to vent on how horrible the parking issue is at the Putnam building. I was concerned that I would not make my appointment on time, since I could not find a spot. It reminded me of Xmas shopping at a popular mall. I call it parking vulture, sitting and waiting till someone comes out and leaves, so you can park. You had a the whole back section blocked, so i actually had to back up to go to another row. As I was entering the building there were at least 10 people at the pay station. My attitude was going down hill so quickly. I even considered, do I want to continue to utilize PIH as my health care provider. I do have other options like San Antonio in Upland. When I was leaving the pay stations were not even working. I just rolled the dice and left. Fortunately the gate went up when I drove up. I sympathize with the older patients that actually have to go to the doctor on a regular basis, between paying and finding a spot. Hopefully, you are already working on a solution because it was horrible.

March 29, 2022
The doctor always gives the best information and care vary nice ???
March 24, 2022
The doctor wants to see my left shoulder, but both shoulders hurt now. I must go back to Primary Care to get another referral for the right shoulder. That seems a waste of time and money, the referring doctor. Referred me to him. He should be able to make the decision and put in for a referral for the right side as well.
March 22, 2022
The doctor was very knowledgeable and very kind. And patient. His office staff was pretty good, except for the gals at the desks within the office. They were very short and very impatient, and helping even to just get a business card. Other than that, I look forward to seeing this doctor on a regular basis longer relationship to my need or pain for my shoulder.
March 22, 2022
This is doctor was great I always have a good time when I go to the Williams building the doctors there so thank you.
March 22, 2022
Any time you go to a doctor to discuss a possible surgery it is anxiety producing. I left feeling that Dr. Hsiao was giving me very concrete answers and offering me the possibility of a less invasive surgical procedure as a starting point.
March 10, 2022
The nurses were so courteous. So polite. So helpful doctor was excellent and answering my questions about that he cared about my situation and told me not to worry. And that he was here to take care of me, and I appreciate that from the doctor. So, overall, I was pleased and happy with my visit and, and the responses that are received from the doctor. And also, the help that I received the nurses. If you have any further questions, you can call me.

Very professional and caring for my needs.
November 23, 2021
The only problem I had with the people in the office, I asked them to give me therapy with (INAUDIBLE) and they make the same mistake again. They gave it to me in Downey, which is too far for me, and I don't know how I'm going to be able to get my therapy in (INAUDIBLE). If you could fix that problem with the people in the office, not getting their ... their information from the doctors the right way, I would appreciate it. Thank you. Goodbye.
November 22, 2021

November 02, 2021
Yes, I really, really appreciated the doctor and his staff. He was very thorough, he listened. I felt like he knew what he was talking about. And my confidence in him was great. My only negative, I guess he's so good, that everybody else thinks he's good. And his waiting room was a little busy, lot of people. So other than that, I mean, I think he was fantastic. I would recommend him, highly.

My experience with the doctor was great. I love PIH however, please do something about the parking lot exit situation. It was so bad yesterday, that I would need to consider if it's worth it to go through it all. 15 minutes to get out, with over 20 cars exiting to another exit. I was 10 minutes late getting back to work, and had given myself and hour an a half. PLEASE HELP! Thank you!

Well, so far, it's been a great relationship. Okay. Goodbye.
