Specialties

Dr. Ray C Hsiao has the following 4 specialties

  • Addiction Psychiatry
  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Addiction Medicine

    An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
    These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

no help whatsoever

Dr. Our son has major problems with depression. We had him see Dr. Hsiao at Children's on three occasions. After our son answered pages and pages of questions and spent several hours talking with he and his assistant, Dr. Hsiao shrugged off our son's problems and paid no attention to what we, as parents, had witnessed. He did nothing to help our son, yet charged enormous fees for hospital resources. We still worry about our son's safety. I'd recommend a doctor who takes the parent's observations much more seriously.

arrogant

Dr. Hsiao is arrogant and does not know how to listen. He seems to come up with a decision about a diagnosis in the first 5 min of the appointment, then just pushes meds. I told him I was not interested or comfortable with drug treatment, but he is a one anwer to everything doc: meds!
