Dr. Tsai explained things to me thoroughly and gave me plenty of time and opportunity to ask questions. I did not feel rushed and felt genuinely focused on and cared for.
Dr Tsai spent a lot of time answering my questions and explaining test results and course of treatment. She does this making sure I understand without talking down to me. She speaks directly and honestly but in a calm and relaxed manner. I find this reassuring when evaluating my cancer and course of treatment. I have the utmost confidence in her.She is well informed of other Swedish services that do not relate to my visit. She directed me to the pharmacy in First Hill building for walk in Covid and RSV vaccine. Previously a Swedish neurologist suggested I try acupuncture but could give no recommendations of where to go. I have also asked my primary doctor about Integrative medicine at Swedish and told there was no one practicing at Swedish. Dr Tsai directed me to Swedish Pain Clinic. This was the information I needed 3 years ago and no other Swedish doctors I saw were aware of this. As a result I have received acupuncture elsewhere and the Integrative medicine appointment I've waited for at UW Is later this month.I am bracing myself for an unpleasant treatment but look forward to seeing Dr Tsai again.
