"Making a positive impact on the lives of children and families and working with a team of some of the most highly skilled professionals in the world to deliver the highest quality of care is tremendously fulfilling work. Directing the fellowship program and shaping the training of the next generation of board certified pediatric anesthesiologists is a way to give back to society and make positive change far beyond my own career. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to play a role in the great work we are doing at Seattle Childrens."

      My son had a liver transplant at Seattle Childrens and Dr. Hsieh took care of him. He went above and beyond to ensure my husband and I were calm and confident that he would take amazing care of our boy, which he did! He made us laugh in an extremely intense situation, and always took extra time to talk with us and come visit with us during our stay. We are so grateful for Dr. Hsieh and how well he took care of our boy during his procedure, thank you so much!
