[...] i was very anxios and concerned about a new lesion that presented on my left leg and lwas lasting weeks. Dr Hsu took me immediately as a walk in, was wonderful, performed biopsies and gave f/u instructions. i was very relieved that i was able to have had so quickly as have had squamous skin cancer in past. very unnerving when i check my skin regularly and see something unusual. I appreciated her responsiveness.

I had been trying unsuccessfully to speak on the phone with another dr. for a while, but Dr. Hsu went above and beyond by trying to call me a couple times on the same day, when I had missed her call. I really appreciated it A LOT.
