Specialties

Dr. Joseph C Hsu has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

Too busy, too careless

In their practice, Dr. Hsu is the best but last 6-7 months, I have been noticing that he is way too busy to spend enough time with the patients, on my son's regular annual visit, he forgot to check his ear- spent less than 5 mins. Once my son was sick and didn't want to prescribe antibiotic until the second visit which was three days later - is it the money thing? On the second visit, he didn't even check the chest or ear or nose, just simply wrote the prescription (whereas my other son was already on antibiotic from similar symptoms). Did we need another visit then? We have no co=pay insurance- so I don't mind their charging our insurance, but still it takes a lot from the busy parents like us to go to the doctors and a two sick kids for the second time - where as he didn't even care to check physically.
