Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

When I was placed in the room to see Dr. Tsai, after my exam and dilation, I was told it should be 15 minutes before he was free. After 45 minutes of being left alone in the room, I pressed the Help bottom to see if I was forgotten. 4 nurses appeared asking what was wrong. I said I had been in the room for 45 minutes and no one came in the keep me updated. After another 15 minutes, Dr Tsai came in and we had a good visit. I expressed my concern about being left in the room alone for a long period with no updates. He agreed that was a problem. I realize the doctors and nurses are busy, but patients should be respected and updated on delays. No one came into the room while I waited, but 4 nurses appeared when I pressed the help button. I would be willing to discuss this concern further over the phone.

One of the best physicians I have ever received care from. He truly is a beta invested in his patients care and has compassion for them and their family .He asked several times before leaving the room if we had any questions. He is a very valuable asset for BSWH system. BSWH should be very impressed with his performance and very lucky to have him in their system.
