    How was your appointment with Dr. Tse?

    Oct 30, 2019
    I was under the care of another nephrologist. I was following all the recommendations but my kidney functions continued to deteriorate. I finally switched to Dr. Tse. He saw me promptly and professionally developed a treatment plan that I followed. Now my kidney functions stabilized. I was so afraid of ending up with dialysis. My concern for this is gone. Thank you Dr. Tse for his excellent care.
