It was great working with Dr. Hsin! Throughout the entire process of getting my knee back to normal function, he was very helpful answering all of my questions and made great recommendations to enhance my recovery. In the end, I had an easy surgery, as well as very quick and relatively painless recovery from my ACL tear!

Dr Hsin is so good! I had knee pains for years, went to the doctor a few times and PT for about a year, still no improvement. Dr Hsin diagnosed my problems within half an hour!

As always, Dr. Hsin quickly determined the cause of my knee pain. He and his nurse were friendly and efficient. I felt confident that my discomfort would disappear, and it did.

Dr. Hsin is the best! He put me back together flawlessly after a slip on ice and a hip fracture. Minimal scarring and back to leading an active lifestyle in less than 6 months!

I have arthritis in my right knee. Had to cancel a few appointments and the day I went in to get my cortisone shot, my knee was feeling not to bad. He explained that I would have good and bad days with my arthritis and to come back when i had more bad then good days. We decided to not do the injection and he didn't charge me for my appointment! That is a man with high integrity! He said he didn't do anything so didn't charge me. Even though he did take the time to talk to me. I was extremely impressed and felt so blessed. Times are getting harder for everyone and I really appreciated what he did.
