Have you seen Dr. Thomas F Tse?

Wrong meds, wrong chart. 3 hour wait. You can not understand what is going on. Office is filthy. Does not tell you what tests are about.
SAVE YOURSELF A LOT OF TIME AND HASSLE! DON'T GO TO THIS DOCTOR!

Dr. Tse is by far the WORST physician I have ever seen. The office is run-down and filthy. He double-books appointments AND takes walk-ins. The staff is lazy and disorganized. The wait time to see the doctor can be anywhere from 2-5 hours. On 2 visits, staff pulled the wrong patient chart. I tried to explain that wasn't my chart and I had never taken the medicine they were talking about. On one occasion, he gave me a VERY INAPPROPRIATE breast exam. I have been scheduled for tests and no one would tell me why I needed them. I found out later that those tests were not needed whatsoever. Be careful! He will run up your insurance to make more money for himself. When he finally arrives in your room, he talks so fast that you can't understand what he's saying. Only his staff can interpret what he's saying. They give you a paper cup to urinate in for a urine sample. I walked into the bathroom and saw several cups with urine in them lined up on the back lid of the bathroom toilet. There were little puddles of urine at the base of the cups because people didn't bother to wipe the cup off. Gross! Since there was no place for me to put the cup, I took it back to my patient room. I told the nurse about it and she rudely told me to take it back to the bathroom and put it on the floor. So you want me to contaminate the sample! On 3 occasions, he prescribed me the wrong medicine. Twice, I have waited 3 hours to be taken back to a patient room. Each time I waited more than 40 minutes for him to arrive in my room. He said they were too, too busy and to make an appointment for another day! I received no services, but my insurance was billed for a doctor's visit. That's FRAUD! The office area where the patient rooms are is filthy and disorganized, which is indicative on how his business is run. The office looks like it should be featured on the reality television show Hoarders! When he finally arrives in your room, the exam is only 10 minutes! Do yourself a favor. Find a competent doctor in Missouri!

Dr. Tse does the Ultrasounds personally and spends a lot of time with each patient. The waiting room furniture is in dire need of replacement; many repairs are done with duck tape. Overall his offices are over crowded and busting at the seams. I have had four visits and have a total waiting time of 8 hours.
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Thomas F Tse - Posted on March 29th, 2013
Dr Tse is by far one of the kindest and most attentive doctors I have ever had to deal with. He works so hard to keep me healthy. I can't say enough good about him. He definitely knows how to think outside the box and is never too busy to help. (Prob why he gets backed up).
Saved my moms life.

Yes, my mom does have LONG waits to see him, but in my opinion he is worth the wait. He saved my moms life. When she cant afford medicine he will give her samples and he does run a lot of test just to make sure everything is okay. But, she does hate the waiting time it does take hours in the waiting room. But, with my moms thyroid he saved her life her primary doctor never caught it.
Wait time is unacceptable
A patient who verified they visited Dr. Thomas F Tse - Posted on February 24th, 2011
I waited to be seen by Dr. Tse for over 5 hours on the 1st visit & 3.5 hours on the second with a full lobby. Great Doctor but over booked which leads me to think I am a pay check not a patient. Most people are missing work to wait 3-5 hours to be seen for 5-10 minutes. A five hour or a three hour wait when you have an appointment is unacceptable! I'm loosing money sitting in the wait room for hours to give him money. Book your patients 15-30 minutes apart, allow for 30 minute lunch period. You won't be over booked or overwhelmed, you would be focused &, have time with your patients. Our time is valuable too. Please be more considerate of your patients, after all we pay your salary.

All comments are true about this doctor. He changes other doctors prescriptions without consulting the prescribing doctor. Runs around the office and rushes in and out. Doesn't even know what tests he has ordered. I would not even send my dog to him.

He rushes in says something that only his staff can seem to understand, He speaks very poor English and acts like he is hopped up on something. Would be better off in a welfare clinic. Is this the best that Belleville has to offer?
Excessive wait time
Self-verified patient of Dr. Thomas F Tse - Posted on September 21st, 2008
I waited over 2 hours to see the doctor for my 1st appointment just to be rushed in and out. I should have know the first sign was walking in to the waiting room and there were in excess of 20 people half of which were sleeping. After 2 hours I asked how much longer and there were still several patients ahead of me. Another patient said this is pretty typical and that there is always a long wait. My other concern was the amount of pill bottles everyone was going in and out with. I will not go back to this doctor again between the dirty office, long wait times and excessive prescriptions I don't trust this office to be the best for my health.
