Chung-Ying Tsai (Fred)


Dr. Tasi is always very thorough and thoughtful in his approach to my treatment. He inquired about all activities that may affect my condition at each visit and has helped me find other specialists when necessary. I’ve seen real improvement in my problems since starting therapy with him. He really goes above and beyond.

Professional and caring team who seamlessly provide appropriate physical therapy and treatment for my acute condition. After a handful of visits, reduced pain and improved range of motion was achieved. My care is ongoing and I am very pleased I found Dr. Tsai and his team.

Dr Chung actually treated me instead of putting on some electrodes and told to go on a bicycle. I came in with pain in my feet and left skipping like I was on a cloud! He really knew his stuff, is very respectful, and professional. He really treats your pain! I’ve been to many therapists before, but he is the real deal.

I have to say this is the best PT treatment I ever got. It is such a big relief of pain every time after visiting Dr. Tsai. It even helps my sleeping quality at night because less neck pain and headaches got much better.

Really felt looked after, Fred figured out some of the issues I had going on helped resolve them, and gave me a lot of exercises to help reduce post work out aches and pains. He has helped me continue training after several painful knocks. I saw 3 different guys over the course of 3 injuries, they were all very helpful and knowledgeable and had no problem being treated by any of the PTs. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.
