We work as a team to provide not only efficient and high-quality care, but most importantly, care that’s personal.”

Philosophy Of Care

“I believe patients should be involved in their own care. Whether that’s questioning the type of injury they have, asking questions their procedure or post-op care, I believe collaboration between patients and providers is the key.”

My only complaint is that sometimes Dr. Tsai spoke very quickly, so I would have to ask them to repeat themselves.
