Verified Patient Reviews
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 had nothing 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 if it 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.
Professional and well explained the procedure. Very comfortable
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, just moments before his scheduled first appointment. I had no problems with this particular visit.
He's an excellent dermatologist.
It was great i would go again for sure
I received excellent advice during my consultation. Dr. Hsieh is attentive and does his best to educate you wrt your condition.
Overall the visit was positive. I wish Dr. Hsieh would take a little more time explaining my diagnosis in more details. I had to ask questions in order to clarify things.
Dr. Hsieh and his staff did a great job! I highly recommend his services.
professional, kind, caring. thank you, Dr. Hsieh and staff!
The first impression is great. Attentive, no rush, detailed info. Treatment results will be seen later
One of the best doctor's I've ever seen.
He's an excellent Dermatologist!
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 to treat 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!
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 he wanted 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.
Very welcoming, thorough and professional.
Very pleased will go back Office staff is outstanding!
Doctor and other members of the stuff were very polite, friendly. As English is not my native language I was glad that I was understood and I easily understood doctor's prescriptions.
Friendly, fast and punctual. I felt comfortable and I also felt that Dr Hsieh was very capable and knowledgable.
I had read many lower reviews of this doctor. I found him to be very accommodating, very personable and very professional.
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. I have 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.
Excellent Doctor. Got right to the problem and got it all taken care of.
Dr Hsieh is the consummate professional, knows his business and cares about his patients.
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 wait long 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 treatment from 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.
Very informative, kind, and helpful!
The officr was very organized, there was barely any wait time and the staff were friendly and polite. The doctor answered all my questions a great experience overall.
Dr. Hsieh is very pleasant and courteous. He took the time to explain his diagnoses and answered all my questions with full transparency. I feel very comfortable with him and his nurse technician. They took care of me and made me feel welcome.
He is very professional doctor!!
short but helpful.
Dr. Hsieh was very knowledgeable and professional!
George is very good doctor! I know he is in hurry, but he try to use less time in each person so he can save the time for people whose waiting. I don't know why people always complaining.
Staff was friendly, all smiles. Doctor gave me a quick and accurate diagnosis. I felt so much better and will follow his guidance. Highly recommend to others with derm issues.
Dr. Hsieh is very to the point. He gave me very easy and clear instructions and several different paths to pursue treatment. His staff all seem very alert and highly trained.
Very professional and efficient. Excellent Staff and service.
He was very rush and only talked for about less than 10 mins
This is the second time I've needed Dr. Hsieh's help. I was able to arrange an appointment for within a few days. He and his staff are very knowledgable friendly and efficient. I always feel well cared for and am happy I found Dr. Hsieh's practice.
Dr. Hsieh is great. He is amiable and establishes a good rapport with the patient right away. He explains what he is doing so there are no surprises. I liked his staff as well.
He seemed a little rushed, but other than that I was very happy with the visit.
Good doctor if you live close by
Just took a rush look at me. Got me two creams which didn't work well on my irritating skin.
Extremely happy with Dr. Hsieh! Not happy with the wait time in lobby.
Dr. Hsieh answered all of my questions in a very clear and unhurried fashion. I felt extremely well cared for and much better educated when leaving. I would recommend Dr. Hsieh to family and friends.
He is a compassionate, commuted, professional!
Dr. Hsieh is very arrogant and has a very dry personality. Additionally he is very blunt and says things as a matter of fact with no consideration for the patient. Major lack of people skills. I will never go back or, recommend anyone to him.
My daughter's first visit was fine. He took time to go over the action plan if her acne doesn't clear up. Her last visit was not very pleasant. Dr. was in a rush. He didn't even bother to sit down even though there were not many patients waiting outside. It seems like my questions were bothering him. In short, I found him unprofessional as a doctor. I will never go to his office again.
This was my first visit and I would definitely recommend him. Everyone in the office was very nice, helpful and personable. Dr. Hsieh was very thorough and explained everything.
He is trustworthy and down-to-earth. I liked him.
really got a lot out of my visit, but was bummed that the wait was about 30-40 minutes before I was seen. That said, the staff is friendly and the office was hopping! Very busy.
Dr. Hsieh was highly recommended by my father, a retired dermatologist from the area. I took my 10- and 12-year-old daughters to see him for a quick check and he was great with them, easing the younger one's fears about being in a doctor's office. He was obviously knowledgeable, confident and personable. His office was clean, modern and comfortable. I have not personally needed to see a dermatologist since my dad retired, but Dr. Hsieh will be the derm I call in the future, with no hesitation!
It was my first visit. I was looking for a new dermatologist, was referred to Dr. Hsieh. The appointment was quick, efficient, informational and my needs were handled accordingly. My time is important to me and I appreciated the promptness of my visit. The staff is competent.
Great doctor very efficient and great bedside manner.
The office stuff and dr.Hsieh left a good impression.
He cured the wart on my left palm that I have been plagued with for the past 50 years! in 2011 September . I had received the same treatment for another two warts today. ( I’ve been to busy to go back to see him) I know that all my warts will be gone forever. Thank you Dr. Hsieh !
Educated me what to look for on my skin and explained in detail every thing he was doing and why. This is all anyone could ask for from their dermatologist.
Nice office. Dr Hsieh explained things clearly. Good experience!
Doctor volunteered lots of good information. Very thorough and friendly.
Dr. Hsieh explained well and very professional about the potential caused of my acne. He gave suggestion and instruction which made me very comfortable. He was also very friendly. His nurse gave knowledge suggestion on makeup to avoid pore blockage so she did an awesome job. Highly recommend!
Dr. Hsieh was professional and efficient but also friendly and took the time to answer all my questions. I was comfortable talking to him and felt I was in good hands. I had chosen him simply because the location was convenient for me, but I'm really glad I chose him. The staff are great too!
Quick Diagnosis and quick decision to operate my left arm mole(?). Hope it is NOT carcinogenic!?
Very well managed office. There was a short wait and Doctor Hsieh knew diagnosis immediately.
My consultation took just 5 minutes. I went in to check if I had an alergy, and the doctor told no. Thats it. No complaints here. Any other doctor would have done the same. Later I was charged so much. So many hundreds. I would never go back because of this reason.
I scheduled laser treatments for acne scars only to find out that this office does not have any laser equipment awful
He is nice but feel that he rushed and did not offer any insights to probable cause of my problem. He did not advise any health tips or prevention solutions that I need to do or watch out for .
I never would visit, very rude professionalism, and does not even care to look @ my problem very thoroughly, just glanced. Never ever go this persons office.
My family physician referred me to Dr. Hsieh for a condition he wasn't sure how to treat. It was my first time to this office, which was right off the freeway 280 and easy to find. Dr. Hsieh was very professional, caring, competent and knowledgable. He explained everything to me in a way that I can understand. I was so glad that I followed the recommendation to come see him. I had seen several dermatologists in my life and he is by far the best. I know I will be returning for follow up and my future skin cancer screening. The staff were also very professional and friendly. The team made the visit as pleasant as it can be. The office was nice, clean and comfortable. I am planning to bring my mom with me next time so we can get skin cancer screening together! I highly recommend Dr. Hsieh.
Dr is very knowledgable and proficient however the prescribed medicine is very expensive and does not make any sense si i am using generic
Not a kind doctor, would not return
Worst, most bizsrre appointment I've ever had.
Very good, kind. Recommended only the necessary remedy, which I find honest and reliable.
Office is very clean and staff also very professional. I would recommend this office! Great experience.
Very personable, attentive, and knowledgeable. Nice office staff.
He was not what I was looking for. I'm not interested in a quick fix to my skin condition, but in properly diagnosing the root cause and addressing that (to ultimately clear up the aesthetic manifestation). He was interested in slapping some chemicals on my face.
I thought Dr. Hsieh was great. He seemed to be interested not only in just treating my problem, but also in making sure I understood the reasoning behind the procedures. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and nice. I would definitely return if I needed to see a dermatogist again.
Was very friendly and got right to the point.
Took care of my needs perfectly.
Well mannered man, very Knowledgeable, explained everything in plain english instead of the big words, which no one understands.
I was very happy with my initial visit with Dr. Hsiesh! Almost no wait and he was able to diagnose me very quickly.
He is very sincere doctor what I have seen so far. He is very clear to explain what I asked even I didn't ask it and very firm!!!
Dr Hsieh was very knowledgeable and reassuring to my dad who had a bad case of plant poisoning...
Very good doc. Efficient and nice.
Excellent. I expected to receive a consultation for a number of dermatology issues, but was surprised that Dr. Hsieh actually went ahead and took care of them on the spot. One stop shop. I love that.
Dr. Hsieh was great. His office staff were excellent too.
He was great, thank you so much.
Great office. The reception staff and nurses were all very pleasant. Setting up as a new patient was simple and I was seen in an expeditious manner. Dr. Hsieh was very informative when it came to my skin and treating the problems I have. I was also pleased in a quick procedure I had to remove a mole from my face.
Easy to talk to and very pleasant.
Wow... Best dermatologist I have ever seen. He listed to my concerns and made reasonable recommendations. He did not push procedures that would be unnessarry. I drove 50 miles to see him and will keep going back! Thank you Doc! I was so pleased with your consultation!
You will not be disappointed!! He is a great doctor! He took his time during the consultation and did not rush.
