About Christine Hsieh , MD

Dr. Hsieh was named one of the Top Doctors of 2021 by Los Angeles Magazine.

 

I believe that I give the best care when I can get to know my patients as individuals. The most rewarding part of my job is seeing patients in the postoperative clinic, wearing their street clothes and looking like any person running an errand. I'm always so impressed by the spirit of my patients.
