I came to Dr. Hsu for a second opinion regarding a problem with my foot. I chose him because he had treated my husband who had broken his ankle last December. We were both so very impressed with his talent, his thoroughness, his ability to blend warmth with professionalism, and his willingness to answer any and all questions we had had. I felt the same about him on my visit yesterday. My husband and I recommend him most highly. 100%
Need more time to decide if someone could give me a ride for surgery at such a short notice. 100%
This does not reflect on Dr Hsu personally but I would not recommend University Orthopedics due to excessive wait times. At least an hour behind every visit. 50%

This comment is not in regards to the doctor but the X‐ray technicians that gave me stress test on my ankle you should know that I was not in any pain arriving to the doctors but after the x‐rays were taken my calf was sore felt like a charlie horse in the middle of the night then it got worse by the time I left after that for the next 2 days I had a very hard time putting weight on that calf because of the painful manipulation of my foot when the x‐rays were taken 2 days I had a knot in my calf and I was in terrible pain for which I warned the technicians I had not walked on my calf for 5 to 6 days and it was very sensitive they didn't seem to be too worried about it and proceeded to take the x‐rays and stretch the calf muscle Way Beyond what had should have been stretched so now I have pain probably for the next 2 days until it heals mind you my ankle has no pain now it's coming from what happened at at Radiology just thought you should know maybe speak to the technicians make them aware when a patient says that their muscle is sensitive due to not using it not to stress it Beyond what it should be stretched out. 100%

Dr. Hsu was very knowledgeable about my injury and I felt very comfortable discussing with him my treatment options for the bestoutcome. He also seems to be a caring person and was very kind. I felt I was in good hands with him as my doctor.

Dr. Hsu always is willing to answer any questions you have a spends as much time as necessary so you feel comfortable with what was explained and making sure you understood.


Dr. Hsu was terrific, very professional. The office does him a disservice in managing his time and clients....a 40+ minute wait is ridiculous and I came a half hour earlier for diagnostic which ran timely so the extra wait was unnecessary.

He is wonderful. I feel that he is understanding, incredibly competent and understands how to put a patient at ease 100%

Everything about the entire process in both my surgeries was excellent and that includes all staff involved at every level of your organization. Everyone involved was outstanding!

Great Experience at Kettle pt. The problem was the number of phone calls to get an appointment to be seen for my daughter's fractured foot. I understand why people just go to ER. It took MULTIPLE phone calls for my daughter to get to be seen by an orthopedic that was a tier 1 for my insurance. 100%
He is a very good doctor. 100%

This is my second visit to Dr. Hsu. He is friendly and polite; Ready to listen to my concerns and to offer non surgical suggestions first to improve my condition. I like that.


I like De Hsu as he made time for me, was not rushed, understands his field, explained things such that I could inderstand, and when I asked Why questions or posed alternate solutions he patiently explained pros and cons.
