Kelly Hsu, MD
Pain Management and Rehabilitation
Dr. Hsu (pronounced “shoo”) grew up in a family where both her parents practiced acupuncture and oriental medicine. Dr. Hsu’s first job was at Washington Acupuncture and she began taking out acupuncture needles at the age of 16. She received her undergraduate degree from the John Hopkins University in 1978, and continued formal acupuncture clinical training from the Chinese Acupuncture Hospital and Veteran’s Hospital in Taipei, Taiwan. Upon returning to the United States in 1981, she passed the California Acupuncture licensure examination. Dr. Hsu realized the importance of combining Eastern and Western medicine and pursued her M.D. from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. After completion of her Residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in 1993, she and her family moved from Cincinnati to Phoenix where she started her private practice in medical acupuncture.
Hsu’s involvement in the Maricopa County Medical Society can be traced back to her arrival in Arizona in 1993. She became actively involved in the Society and joined its Board of Directors in 2012. She is also very active in the Asian community having founded the non-profit Asian Pacific Community in Action (APCA) in 2002. APCA's mission is to meet the health related needs of Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AA and NHPI) individuals and families residing in Arizona.
