    As a retired physician, I find it refreshing to be treated as an equal despite our different specialties. Dr. Hsu has a really nice "bedside" manner.

    Dr. Hsu is wonderful. He is a very attentive and intelligent doctor, while maintaining a level of kindness and empathy that many doctors do not have. I will always see him for ENT needs.
