We believe in a healthy lifestyle and treatment modalities that will provide long-term pain relief for our patients. While opiates/narcotics do have a place in the treatment of pain, we strive to utilize modalities other than addictive painkillers. Dr. Hsu remains adamant about researching and utilizing the most up-to-date and advanced treatment options for patients. At our office, patients will be shown compassion and sympathy. We strive to create a genuinely personal and positive experience for our patients.
