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.

The technician that took my x-rays was very nice, treated me with respect. Some of the other stuff didn't really take their time, and felt pretty pushy. Also, I had to pay for parking.

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.

September 07, 2021
I was grateful that the doctor came back after my daughter's check up had been completed and the nurse was finalizing the visit. We developed two more questions regarding the surgery at that time and the nurse informed us she would ask the doctor please return and he did in a timely manner and assisted us with our questions. Thank you

Was very reluctant to go in for care due to the Situation with the Virus. I felt very Comfortable with the PIH Orthopedic Office, Doctor and Staff. I'm looking forward now with my Therapy and Medical Needs.

Dr. Hsiao recommended physical therapy but when I was leaving I didn't get an order for it so had to call to get it since I wanted to go outside of PIH

July 28, 2021
Hi. Yes. I had an appointment for 4 p.m. and I called the office when I left work at 2:30 and I drive right by the office on my way home. So I called and said, would it be possible if I came in early on my way, I would be there probably about 3 o'clock instead of 4 o'clock. And she put me on hold, she came back and she said, yes he's on time I so I don't want to come in if I'm going to have to wait, and I said, otherwise, I'll just go on home and then I'll come back at 4. They said, no, no, just go ahead and come on in, it'll be fine. I got there. They took me took my copay took me in right away.I waited in the office in the room an hour and 15 minutes and I was done. I got up and I walked out

Dr. Hsiao's treatment was excellent. I felt significantly better immediately afterward.
July 21, 2021
Appointment day waiting too long almost after one month.

He's excellent in all of his performance. That's all I can say. Thank you.
July 14, 2021
Dr. Hsiao is very knowledgeable and pleasant to visit. His staff has always been very courteous. I am always seen at my appointment time. Only one occasion was he late getting to the LH office from surgery. The staff told me he was on his way and I waited maybe 10 minutes. I have referred my parents and my boss to him because I trust him and he has treated me very well on every occasion.
July 13, 2021
Dr. Hsiao was great. He was super caring and attentive, and the office staff was exemplary
June 30, 2021
Dr Hsiao was excellent with his customer service and explanation of issue with options for the remedy. The staff worked quickly and never stopped communicating each step and ETA...
June 29, 2021
I feel that when a patient is in pain that there should be some appointments, emergency appointments, or some set aside for situations like that. I don't think that if you're in pain that you should have to wait a week 2 weeks, 3 weeks or even 4 weeks.
June 29, 2021
A very nice doctor
June 29, 2021
Great Dr
June 29, 2021
Dr. Hsiao is an amazing Doctor.

I will definitely say that PIH is extremely fortunate to have Dr. Hsiao. Thank you very much for such a great visit and knowing the 1step, in getting my injury diagnosed and started treatments.

Everything was okay!
June 21, 2021
Hi my situation is difficult at best because of me not because of the doctors, Dr. Hsiao is incredibly professional knew his stuff. I had 100% safe in his abilities as a doctor. He's a wonderful human being and it was handled in the most timely manner possible, under my circumstances which I said was difficult at best. Anyway, I would recommend him to anyone my family my friends and I just thought it was terrific. Thank you so much. Take care. Bye.

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.

April 13, 2021
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.
March 30, 2021
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.
March 22, 2021
Thank you.
March 18, 2021

March 16, 2021
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.
February 25, 2021
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
Dr. Hsiao is a caring, empathetic and trustworthy doctor. I felt like he listened to me and provided a real outlook for my recovery.

I went to get my blood test and they didn't give it to me because I have HMO. I don't like that. That's it.
February 09, 2021
Great staff.
February 09, 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! ??
February 09, 2021
Very pleased with the doctor and his staff. All very professional.
February 08, 2021
Recovery from surgery has went better than expected.
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.
January 05, 2021
Dr. Hsiao is very kind one of the best.
January 05, 2021
