"I love my job. It is a great honor and privilege to partner with patients and their families as they adjust to challenges of their diagnosis and see that hope and happiness can lie beyond their difficult journey. They, along with the amazing team I partner with here at Seattle Children's, are a daily inspiration. I believe that we can achieve the ideal outcome for every child and allow them to realize their life's dreams; this is what drives me forward in my both my clinical work and my research."

Dr. Hsu is an AMAZING doctor and an even more wonderful person! My 6 year old son Jonah was recently Life Flighted to Seattle Children's Hospital for Acute Liver Failure. Dr. Hsu was there for Jonah and my family from the minute we were admitted to the hospital. Through every decision, she was always there to reassure and comfort us. I could not have asked for a better team of doctors. Although the experience of Acute Liver Failure was beyond imaginable, Dr. Hsu and her team were absolutely amazing in every way. Thank you so much!
