Jami couldn't be any more excited to be practicing with Dr. Hsieh in a new way and is finding it incredibly rewarding:
“The traditional health care system of today can be confusing and fragmented. Our passion is knowing the whole patient as a person beyond the medical issue they may be experiencing. We really manage their care from start to finish. And that ability to coordinate, comfort, and personalize their care, and seeing their gratification in the process…is what I love most about what I do!" ---- Jami Feitz
