I went in for an ED visit. Mike Yang misdiagnosed the issue and did not solve my problem. He never took the time to listen to the issue. He came in like a yahoo doctor who never intended to treat me for my ailment.

Review for Dr. Fridman

A very knowledgeable and caring physician. She went the extra mile for my mom and we sincerely appreciated the guidance and follow up she provided. Wish all physicians were like Dr. Liu!

Review for Dr. Liu

This doctor does not care about elderly patients. She overturned another doctor’s decision about my 92 year old father going to SNF for physical therapy for ONE week which he desperately needed. I’m VERY disappointed in KAISER and this doctor.
