About Bryan Tsao, M.D.

Philosophy of Care

I am grateful that God has given me a chance to serve Him through the practice of medicine and ask Him to continually guide me and help me make life better for those around me.

Neurologists are expected to formulate an expert approach for a variety of complex neurological disorders. However, we need to take a step further to truly fulfill our mission of providing whole person care. Thus, I believe in putting patient's first and listening to their needs. That means we need to address not only the physical, but the spiritual and social health of each patient.

As a clinical neuromuscular specialist, I treat each patient as I would like my own family to be treated and enjoy getting to know my patients more personally over time. This helps me to better understand how they are affected by their condition and design a personalized evaluation and treatment plan that fits each individuals needs. My mission is to infuse a patient-centered approach into our Department so that our patients will experience the uniqueness of Loma Linda University.

One of the main reasons I chose to practice academic medicine is that I love to work with and teach medical students, neurology residents, and fellows. Our ability to train future physicians depends on how effectively we pass on what we have learnt to those who are just beginning their careers. To accomplish this, their education must take place in the clinical setting, not just in classrooms, so they can learn the art of medicine. That is why most of my patient's are first assessed by a clinical resident or fellow. These residents are trained physicians with a completed medical degree. Together we discuss each case in detail before I personally verify important facts and neurological findings before beginning a discussion on our combined impression and plan.
