Searching for a doctor can be both daunting and confusing, reading reviews and trying to sort out the best from the mass of online recommendations. Dr Hsieh reviews suggested he would be a good choice and I was not disappointed, hetook the time to listen and completely answered my questions and tailored my treatment to best suit both my medical and economic concerns. I was very satisfied with Dr Hsieh and will continue treatment with him should I need any further follow-up. Jason E

The surgery was as painless as it could be. The staff are really nice, and the place very clean. The attitude of the doctor is somehow rushing and cold.

I was very impressed with Dr. Hsieh. He saw my problem right away and another problem that could be very serious, that I was not aware of. His nurse was fantastic and made me feel very comfortable. His office staff was so nice.

Dr. Hsieh is very professional and he was very informative. I had some skin issues on my back and wanted to be sure there was no skin cancer. He examined me and alleviated my fears, letting me know that I hadnothing to worry about. I felt that his many years of experience in the medical dermatology area were very valuable and he made me feel very comfortable with the visit.

Seemed extremely perturbed that I booked an appointment with him. Because I didn't have a cancerous mole for him to remove he kept describing to me the difference between medical and cosmetic issues and not to book with him again ifit wasn't for a medical issue (I asked about anti-aging treatments and thought it was appropriate as it was a selection on ZocDoc as a reason to see this doctor). Chastised me and wouldn't stop explaining the difference between medical and cosmetic issues even after I told him I understand. Didn't care to understand much of what I was saying - just spouted off a ton of prescriptions to send to my pharmacy. I've never met such an arrogant human and I hope I won't ever again.

He was very professional and knew exactly what he was diagnosing. Gave a bottle sample of the med as it is really expensive to get it outside. Hopefully it works well.

There was a scheduling mixup as the office had me down for a 3p appointment, even though Zocdoc confirmed I had a 9a appointment. However, the staff was really helpful that Dr. Hsieh was able to accommodate me at 9:30a, justmoments before his scheduled first appointment. I had no problems with this particular visit.

Zero empathy. Made me feel worse for crying when I felt hopeless about my problem. He also wouldn't answer my question no matter how many times I tried to phrase it clearly and differently. He just wanted to say what hewanted to say and that was that. The office has zero tech. They can't send lab requests to the lab electronically. They can't email your lab results to you. Overall a negative experience. I'm going somewhere else to start treatment.

Dr. Hsieh was very kind, and the office staff was great as well. He saw me quickly and first reassured me that my issue was normal and nothing was WRONG with me, and that we would do what we could totreat it. He wrote me prescriptions and explained what to do, and also explained my options regarding the most affordable way to go about treatment since I was a cash patient and I did not have insurance to cover my visit. He was direct and to the point which I liked, and was kind and friendly, and the nurses and receptionists were just great as well. No complaints so far!

This was my first visit with Dr. Hsieh. I was very impressed with how attentive and thorough he was. He took the time to explain everything clearly, and let me know what to expect. His staff also was a delight. Ihave had way too much experience with patronizing and distant medical staff personnel. Everything and everyone at Dr. Hsieh's office was warm and efficient. Looking forward to my next visit with Dr. Hsieh in six months.

I was a little disappointed. Let me start with the positive, the staff was very nice and friendly. I went to the location in los Gatos which I thought it was easy to find and convenient. I didn't have to waitlong to be seen. Just the usual time to complete new patient paperwork and I think I was called in shortly after that. The logistics overall worked nice for me, but... about the visit itself, I felt the doctor was in a rush and I really didn't feel taken care off. I felt he just wanted to get in and out to the next patient. He was friendly but rushed. I got a prescription and dismissed quickly. Sadly, I don't think I will return.

I arrived early by 25 minutes to fill-out several forms since I am a new patient. There were several pages to complete. When I completed the forms the doctor was ready to meet me. I was familiar with the expected treatmentfrom other such treatments several years ago. The simple treatment was conducted quickly and a second appointment was established as a follow-up in a matter of minutes.
