Raymond K. Hsu



Dr. Raymond Hsu is a nephrologist who treats patients with a broad spectrum of kidney diseases, providing care in both inpatient and outpatient settings. In his clinic, he sees patients with all presentations of chronic kidney disease, difficult-to-control hypertension (high blood pressure), glomerulonephritis, pregnancy-related kidney diseases and other kidney disorders. He also treats patients with end-stage renal disease who are on long-term dialysis therapies, including hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

Hsu's research uses administrative and clinical data to better understand which populations tend to be affected with acute and chronic renal diseases as well as their outcomes.

Hsu earned his medical degree from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He then completed a residency in internal medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine, followed by a fellowship in nephrology at UCSF. He also has a master of advanced study degree in clinical research from UCSF.

    Dr. Hsu is absolutely wonderful in all respects. He has been treating me for nearly a year now including office visits and an out-patient procedure. He is clearly a highly trained and knowledgeable specialist and at the same time he is very friendly down-to-earth caring and a great listener. He answered all of my questions. He has a treatment plan for me and explained all of it. I am very grateful Dr. Hsu is my physician.

    I am feeling more and more comfortable with Dr. Hsu; the relationship is flourishing. At first the face-to-face meetings were far more effective but now the remote sessions are working well too. My only concern (and it is a continuing one on which I have commented before) is that he seems to be siloed in his practice -- not aware of treatment options beyond UCSF. Given the difficulty of getting a kidney transplant at UCSF -- it summarily rejected my application two years ago but two other facilities are putting me on their lists -- that apparent narrow-mindedness is a problem.
