    By reading the notes in my history I found some cardiac conditions Dr. Hsia didn't mention such a clot in the heart. I would have appreciated an opportunity to ask for more info on it.

    The care provider never mentioned the effect of radiology studies (UCSF where radiology was done is 3 hours from my home) on the procedure - yea or nay - which he ordered on whether or not the procedure was needed. So I am assuming it will not be done.

    The doctor was rude and hard to communicate with. He kept interrupting us when we tried to answer his questions. I was barely able to finish one whole sentence without being stopped or re-directed. Also we were blamed for not providing him the necessary information however the full medication list was submitted to UCSF through a phone call one day before the meeting and the critical medical history was also submitted during the e-check process. We understand that the doctor might be too busy to read it but it's unfair for us to be blamed. Overall an unpleasant conversation.

    Dr. Hsia is very thorough. He always carefully looks at EKG and reviewed all the details and prognosis with me even when sometimes I ask very simple stupid questions. He constantly assures me that I am in good hands and no need to worry too much. We feel his expertise dedication and care made a big difference in our hearts.
