He is wonderful!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Thomas F Tse - Posted on March 10th, 2019
Dr. Tse is the most caring and compassionate Doctor. I have been with him since 2009. Dr. Tse's wait time is extreme because he always takes patients. Endocrinologists are not easy to find in this area, so he has an extreme amount of patients. You do have to wait, but he tries to do the best job possible. I really like this doctor. He is wonderful!
He SAVED my life
Self-verified patient of Dr. Thomas F Tse - Posted on October 24th, 2018
After 2.5 yrs and many doctors & tests (even other endocrinologists) Dr Tse was recommended to me. He was the only Dr who believed I was sick and was suspicious of cancer. Sure enough, he was right. I sent 3 other people and he also saved their life when other docs didn't find their cancer. YES the wait time was awful because he chooses to take public aid because he wants to care for EVERYONE. YES office was awful but his focus was his patients. He started seeing patients in the hospital as early as 4am and went after office hours every single night.. even weekends and had Sat office hours. Called patients until 10pm at night to see how they were or give test results. He never slept and never sat still. I don't remember him taking vacation in the 15 yrs he cares for me. He gave many patients his cell phone. So while these awful reviews about wait time, his broken english and ugly office are true, (1st world problems) I'm very sad that others didn't give the smartest, most compassionate dr I have ever known, a chance to really show you who he is. I feel SO very blessed that he saved my life and many others. I'm also proud that he worked hard to serve the under insured and would write off a LOT for patients who couldn't pay bills. He drove an old Toyota Camry and lived super conservatively. What the world needs is more Dr Tse's that go to the end of world to care for patients, listen and BELIEVE them and to keep looking or refer them so they can get answers. He would get medicine for free to help patients who couldn't afford it. He'd call other docs personally to get you in if you needed help. He was one of a kind. I'm glad he has moved into a position where he can inspire/ impact the medical profession even more. Sorry to those who so quickly passed judgement and left his care. Just like a great restaurant or lines at Disney.... the BEST things are worth waiting for. After all, why are these people waiting 3-5 hrs in an ugly office if he wasn't actually worth the wait? I'm just glad I was under his care...I was BLESSED!

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.

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.
Self-verified patient of Dr. Thomas F Tse - Posted on March 13th, 2013
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
Self-verified patient of 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.
