Try him, you'll love him

Im a mother of 4 and He has delivered my last 3 babies. First was a vaginal delivery followed by two c-section. The thing I love about him the most is, how he makes you feel confident & reassuring when asking him a question! He is so professional. I dont plan on having my fifth and final baby anytime soon, but when it does happen, one things for sure... Dr.Tasi will be the doc. I choose:)

I would absolutely not recommend Dr.Tsai. While it was very easy to get an appointment with him and his office staff was great he was a nightmare. By far the worst experience I've ever had at a doctor visit.

Dr. Tsai was on-call during my first delivery. He seemed a bit annoyed initially that I had questions about the induction process, saying my regular OB-GYN should've already explained everything, but he walked me through it. I dilated much faster than anticipated, and he immediately sprung into action. My infant's heart rate plummeted, and he made a snap decision to rush me into the OR. My daughter was born merely 7 minutes later, healthy and happy. Post-pardem cleanup was a breeze, and Dr. Tsai took the time and detail to carefully suture my incision, which was straight, low, and minimal, given the circumstances. He visited with me twice afterwards, and explained home care for the incision site. I can see how some demanding patients might find him a little intense in terms of attitude, but I really appreciate his take-charge mentality and abilities. This doctor has my confidence!

Dr. Tsai should not be delievering babies

dr. tsai was the on call dr. who delivered my son. He I believe and as well as other Ob's believe he is responsible for causing me to have a Secondary PPH.He in my opinion should not be delievering babies. He has the worst bedside manner and did not tell me what was going on with me after I nearly bleed to death! I wish there was a way I could spread the word about Dr.Tsai so that this does not happen to another woman putting their trust and their life in his hands.
