What Dr. Tsao's Patients Say
A BRILLIANT ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON - Dr. Audrey Tsao and her PA Heather are a GREAT TEAM! I have had a very successful right hip replacement at Boswell Memorial Hospital in Sun City, Arizona and am eagerly awaiting my left hip replacement in six weeks done, of course, by Dr. Tsao and Heather. As a result of my first surgery, I am completely pain free on my right side. By March, I am quite sure I will be completely pain free and swinging a golf club again!
EXCELLENT CARE - I had knee surgery with Dr. Tsao and found her to be a caring professional who provided thorough care before, during and after surgery. Office staff is excellent!
Dr. Tsao is a wonderful doctor. She is the best knee surgeon around and we have recommended her services to others; and the people we recommended are also very happy with her work.
One of the best. 2 hip replacements within a year and no problems. I have told everyone I know how great she is.
I am very satisfied with Dr. Tsao's care.
Dr. Tsao is a very knowledgeable orthopedist specializing in difficult areas. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of her specialty.
