July 25, 2014

Dr. Hsu and the assistant were very personable. Dr. Hsu was very informative about what was being done during the exam and what to expect with the surgery we discussed.

July 24, 2014

Totally free of any negative treatment or feelings, professional.Probably the best medical experience of my lifetime.

June 27, 2014

Dr. Hsu is a remarkable doctor/surgeon. She is reassuring, and exudes confidence and professionalism

June 15, 2014

Provider spent a great deal of time assessing, explaining and giving options for my condition.

June 14, 2014

I was very satisfied with the whole experience.

May 24, 2014

She only diagnosed part of the problem, but the urinary retention problem was solved and she didn't suspect the bowel obstruction.

May 19, 2014

I loved the kindness and intelligence she had but did not give me time for my questions or concerns. She was extremely polite but acted like she might get behind if she had to explain the process of the surgery. I found way more information online than from her. I will still have her perform my surgery because I truly feel she has the skills and knowledge it takes.

May 06, 2014

My experience with Dr. Hsu and staff was very very good.....

April 26, 2014

Caring and spent time enough to answer all my questions.

April 13, 2014

My care providers were all three very good. I appreciated that they took the time to explain things to me and treated me like my care was important to them

April 09, 2014

good

February 08, 2014

I was extremely impressed with Dr. Hsu. It is apparent she is very knowledgeable and extremely competent, yet she has a wonderful bedside manner. I felt very at ease.

January 20, 2014

I had a good exam by the doctor and she explained my situation in words I could understand. I liked her alot and have confidence that what she told me was true. I just wished it was better news.

January 20, 2014

I really liked Dr Hsu. I felt a lot better about the situation after seeing her. I thought it was well worth the trip from Elko. Thank you.

January 20, 2014

If there had been a bracket for a 10 on this questionnaire I would have marked it. I am very grateful for such amazing people.

January 13, 2014

I am so lucky to be under the care that is being given. Everyone is fantastic.

December 30, 2013

Had some questions but did not have the opportunity to ask.

December 16, 2013

I FEEL THAT DOCTOR HSU IS GOOD BUT SHE MUST SHOW MORE INTEREST ON THE PATIENT AND HAVE MORE TIME TO EXPLAIN PROCEDURES, SIDE EFFECTS AND AFTER SURGERY PROBLEMS

December 14, 2013

the doctor was very caring and made sure I understood what she was explaining. she also seemed very knowledgable and put me at ease that she knew exactly how to deal with my problem. I felt much better about how the problem could be handled after seeing the doctor.

December 01, 2013

Dr. Hsu was exceptional at explaining her diagnosis: kind, caring - a remarkable doctor

November 25, 2013

Dr. Hsu was very knowledgeable about the problems I was experiencing. She was kind and polite and after my surgery she checked on me herself, which impressed me. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and others.

November 18, 2013

Dr. Hus has been wonderful to help me out. Very glad that I was referred to her.

November 18, 2013

Dr. Hsu examined me and explained everything as she went. She did not appear rushed or in a hurry. She was very detailed in her explanations about my concerns and condition. I came away very confident in her knowledge and her ability to take care of me.

October 14, 2013

Dr. Hsu is fantastic. She is incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and approachable. I didn't feel awkward or uncomfortable at all and felt I could tell her about all my problems without being hastily shoved out the door like so many other doctor's visits I've had. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.

October 03, 2013

DR. HSU VERY COMPASSIONATE.

September 25, 2013

Dr. Hsu is great, and cares!

September 11, 2013

Dr. Hsu is very attentive being aware of your health situation, as well as your emotional state of mind.

September 10, 2013

I really like Dr. Hsu

September 03, 2013

I did not feel embarrassed being examined.

August 23, 2013

I would recommend her to friends and family she explained everything to me very well

August 21, 2013

Loved Dr. Hsu and her staff

August 06, 2013

THis was a good experience.

August 06, 2013

Dr. Hsu took her time with me and my husband. She knew we traveled 4 hours to come see her so she made sure we understood everything and didn't pressure us into making a desiction right at that momnet. She explained everything we needed to know about what was best for me. Half way home she gave me a call to make sure we had understood everything again. I have never experienced any kind of drs. appointment like this in my life. I thank Dr. Hsu for making me feel like I had a choice in my life with no pressure. She's a good dr. and we will travel again to see her.

July 30, 2013

Dr Hsu was very good at explaining what was happening with my problem. She explained what would happen with surgery and what to expect. She is a very positive doctor and my husband and I like her alot! I would recommend her to anyone that might need her specialized care. I am so grateful that she could help me. Other doctors I went to said she was the only one to help me and believe me She IS AWESOME!

July 23, 2013

I was extremely pleased with Dr. Hsu! She was very knowledgeable and helpful! The only thing at all that I was disappointed in is the fact that I thought she was a specialist in the other area that I have problems with. (uterine and fibroid issues) so I did not anticipate having to see another specialist. However she was extremely helpful in getting me another appointment to see a specialist for those issues!

July 22, 2013

Dr. Hsu was very caring, she took a lot of time after her physical exam to answer all of our weird random questions and didn't seem eager to get out of the room at any point which was very refreshing.

July 15, 2013

When I do not understand something Dr. Hsu explains very calmly and in understandable terms what she is talking about. She listens when I have a question and answers them very professionally.

July 01, 2013

The only thing I could see needing work on, is the paper handout with Pre-Op/Post Op Instructions. I mentioned this at my last visit.

July 01, 2013

Dr. Hsu is an amazing woman and Dr. and I have always felt confident in her care. She is a Dr. that puts her patients needs first. She has compassion and is so sweet!!

July 01, 2013

My experience with this physician was humiliating. She refused to allow me to explain my concerns, and instead just made assumptions based on the pre-visit checklist. I didn't feel like I was allowed to speak any more than a simple "yes" or "no" answer to her generic questions. She spent a generous amount of time with me, however the time was spent by her explaining to me that my problems were insignificant. I would have never made an appointment for such a sensitive problem had I known this is how it would turn out. I left feeling embarrassed and wishing I had just walked out of the appointment. On a positive note, the medical assistant was friendly and caring. She even offered me a snack while I waited for the physician to arrive at the office.

May 27, 2013

She was pretty insistent that she talk and I hold any questions, and then when I expressed my opinion, she got all upset that she thought I didn't understand her, and I understood perfectly well. I felt like I was treated as a little child.

May 13, 2013

Dr Hsu was very personable and efficient. She was sensitive and kind.

May 08, 2013

Dr Hsu is an amazing dr. I would highly recommend her to anyone!!

May 06, 2013

Suggestion: more information for the patient regarding self-care following surgery, especially for those who live out of town and cannot conveniently schedule a check-up. (What to expect, what is normal, what medications are recommended for specific symptoms, what can be used for comfort, what activities are allowed after surgery). I ended up in the ER, then back at my primary gynecologist for 2 more follow up visits, due to irregular bleeding and pain.

April 22, 2013

I am confident that this doctor will do a good job with the surgery coming up.

April 22, 2013

I have seen a few specialty doctors before meeting Dr. Hsu and I just wish that I could go back to the other drs. and just start with her and her only. She is someone that I trust and I know that she cares about me. I am very impressed with her and her knowledge of my problem. I would recommend her to all the women in my life that I care about!!

April 14, 2013

fine

March 26, 2013

PROS: Dr. Hsu seems to be well trained and knowledgeable about her subject. She has a pleasant personality that would appeal more to younger women then senior ladies. CONS: If you want a doctor with a good bedside manner, Dr. Hsu is NOT the one. She must have skipped this class in med school. During both appointments, she delivered her information rapidly, giving you little time to mull over what she was saying, and expected you to take in all the info quickly. As with most physician specialists, she seemed to have a superior attitude about her knowledge and expertise.

March 21, 2013

excellent

March 19, 2013

Dr. Hsu and staff were courteous, helpful, professional and comforting.

March 07, 2013

the dr. seemed to busy to answer my questions.

March 05, 2013

they seem to care for me very much

March 04, 2013

I had researched Dr. Hsu and was real happy to have to the opportunity to meet her in person and have her be the doctor that I know can help me with my issues. She was on time, friendly, and very informative and thorough. She explained things to me so that I could understand. I was very pleased with the care that I received. I would recommend her to anyone!!

February 25, 2013

Dr. Hsu told me that the surgery I had did not hold. I will have to have another surgery sometime in the future. It depends on me and how much my condition annoys me. I was discouraged by this, but I also know that she did a good job the first time. My body just did not respond the way we would have hoped.

February 25, 2013

She did explain a few things quickly and it wasn't until later (after thinking through them) that I had some questions. She told me she was double booked that day and I think that made the visit more rushed.

February 18, 2013

As I said previously, Dr. Hsu was very thorough and spent quite a bit of time answering my and my husband's questions.

February 11, 2013

Dr. Hsu seems to care about my concerns and wants me to understand my options. That is really nice.

February 08, 2013

I prefer to address any concerns directly with the doctor I see in this clinic so that I am not misunderstood.

February 04, 2013

Dr. Hsu is always sincerely concerned about "ME", she answers all my questions in words that I can understand and never makes fun at the silly questions I may have. She is a wonderful Dr. and has always been fully concerned about my health and problems.

January 09, 2013

Did not really listen to what I was saying, am still not sure what I was told regarding residual pain was accurate.

January 01, 2013

Excellent care

December 11, 2012

Loved Dr. Hsu!

December 10, 2012

Dr. Hsu is wonderful

November 15, 2012

great doctor. I have already recommened her to others

November 12, 2012

Am sorry provider did not care about my problems in others words :" it was her way or no way" at my last phoine call received by her 10 minutes after leaving her office was very rude and unprofessional. will never refer no one to her or will I ever go back to see her.

October 29, 2012

Very thorough great information felt like she had all the time needed to porvide my care

October 05, 2012

I have recommended De Hsu to another woman.

July 16, 2012

Dr. Hsu was most cordial and concerned about my individual situation.

June 01, 2012

Dr. Hsu is all-around amazing!

May 13, 2012

excellent

April 20, 2012

The Dr. is very good but I would like some more information. Maybe a hand-out of what to expect during and after the surgery, recovery time etc. Where I could go to look up info. on a computer. I need to take a notepad with me so I remember all the info.

April 18, 2012

Problem was not solved. I paid to talk to her with no good outcome. Disappointed that no testing or other services were offered.

March 27, 2012

I'm from out of state so probably won't be a common thing to make the trip, but I would definitely recommend your services for someone needing care that is unavailable locally.

March 02, 2012

I would highly recommend Dr. Hsu.

February 11, 2012

Experience was all good

January 27, 2012

There was unintended damage to my bladder during surgery. While this is a possiblity that was discussed prior to surgery it was still of course disappointing.

January 20, 2012

Dr. Hsu is a kind, caring, and very competant physician. I feel very involved in my treatment and I am always given choices and listened to. I never feel rushed.
