My visit was just an annual check-in to see how my therapy is going. The whole thing took 5 minutes, and I'm not having any issues.

National Jewish Health PatientApril, 2021
Dr. Tsai was great. My only comment is that she is very sharp, very knowledgeable, and conveys a lot of information in somewhat of a rapid-fire manner. [PHI] it would be helpful if she could slow down a little bit. When I did ask her to explain or expound she was patient, and did so, in a very helpful manner.

good experience

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2021
Dr. Tsai is an excellent doctor. She always takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns, asks me questions, and address any issues I want to discuss. She approaches our time together with a lot of care and concern for me, and makes me feel that all of my worries are important. I only see her once a year, and it is great to know that I will be able to make the most of that time with her! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!
