He completed his externship in several interesting places, including the University of Tennessee in their Neurology, Internal Medicine & Ophthalmology departments, and at the Rabbit Research center at OSU, the Oregon Regional Primate Center and the VA Medical Center Research Laboratory.

In 1992 he started working at Rock Creek Veterinary Hospital, where he met his future wife Shannon.
In 2012, Dr. Tsui was given the option to buy both Rock Creek Veterinary Hospital and the sister clinic in North Plains. He liked the small-town feel of North Plains and chose to purchase North Plains Veterinary Clinic. He is now the owner and primary Veterinarian.
