  • Went to LaPaz office for urgent care . I was experiencing severe pain in back and leg. Waited about 45 minutes to see dr. Tsao who was personable, professional, and diagnosed it as sciatica after 3 exrays. Felt better within 1day with meds and cortisone shot.
    I have never seen Dr. Tsao (sp?) before. I was pleasantly surprised, as he was very knowledgeable and explained my issue and offered at home follow up. I was a clinic appointment walk-in I scheduled for this same day. It was nice to be able to use that scheduling and somewhat plan my visit appointment. The doctor was great and felt good about all the options and explanations he was providing me as my knee had increased in pain this day beyond belief. He took x-rays to be sure there were not any broken bones and showed me how to properly wrap my knee with an ace bandage. I couldn't have been more pleased and appreciated the medication he prescribed as needed, as well at PT.
    Dr Tsao was great
    Always friendly, professional care.
    Dr Tsao did most of the talk as though he carried on a conversation with some acquaintance rather than a doctor and patient. I was expected to see an MD family practice but instead saw a DO. How he came across pretty much explained who what he was.

    Biography

    Dr. Jonathan Tsao earned his medical degree at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, Missouri in 1995. (now known as A.T. Still University) which is a founding school of Osteopathic Medicine with a holistic approach to medicine. He completed his Family Practice internship/residency training at Pacific Hospital/Long Beach Memorial Hospital and has been Board Certified In Family Medicine since 1998.

    He served as a Staff Physician at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center and an associate teaching faculty in both EM and PA fellowship programs for 20 years before he joined community practice at Saddleback Family Urgent Care under Vituity in Lake Forest, Mission Viejo in 2017.

    He has a specific passion for ambulatory care and urgent care practice. He finds it extremely gratifying and views it as a privilege to serve his local community. He believes providing geographic convenience and availabilities for non-emergent medical care, in timely effective visits are rewarding. Not only does it help decompress our crowded ED for life-threatening event services. It expands our healthcare avenue, significantly reduces cost, and is especially beneficial to our rising and aging population in South Orange County.

    "It is not what we are capable of doing, it is what we can provide to patients in desperate need situations that are more important. I enjoyed the hands-on treatment of diverse medical problems. My philosophy is to provide an attentive personal experience, good communication, and delivering highest quality of health care throughout the treatment and recovery processes. Emphasizing patient education provides a clear perspective to better understand healthcare system utilization between primary care, urgent care, and ER."
