Review of Dr. Hill Jr


Dr. Hill is my first choice for skill, safety, & bedside manner! Dr. Hill is not only extremely talented and highly skilled, but has a very natural seeming energetic caring bedside manner. Dr. Hill spent a lot of time with me at my appointments answering my questions. Even when there were other patients in the waiting room, I never got the impression that he was in a rush. He was just as friendly & caring during my post-op period. I had a fantastic outcome!

He did not even meet me but was even on vacation and looked at my scans and was willing to work with me and he is the best doctor I could have asked for.

Review of Dr. Liu


He is compassionate, highly skilled, and was willing to help me when no one else would. He placed my transverse sinus stents, to alleviate intracranial hypertension. My quality of life has improved drastically!

Review of Dr. Liu

- in Roanoke, VA |

I was amazed at how quickly I was able to get an appointment. He spent an hour with my wife and I at the initial appointment. He asked us numerous times if we had questions. When he said the next step was a surgical test, I was afraid it would be months. He said he would do it in less than a week. He is fantastic as is his entire staff!

Review of Dr. Liu

- in Troutville, VA |

Straight forward approach to the serious procedure I am about to have with him. He instantly generated trust with his frankness and confidence yet compassionate approach. He took lots of time to explain it to me and he set back and waited for me to stare at the images and think of more questions when most Dr. would have used the silence to dismiss themselves. While I am not looking forward to the procedure I am confident in the surgeon I have chosen. Kristi on his staff is also great.

Review of Dr. Liu

- in Haymarket, VA |

Dr. Liu is amazing. He knows what he can do and what he can't do and is conservative in doing unnecessary tests or treatment. He took a chance on me and I'm so glad to have found him. He genuinely cares about his patients and personally followed up with me for weeks after post op. His staff are also great and go out of their way to help you and make your appointments as easy as possible.
