Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Liu "Cardiac Electrophysiology is exciting because the therapies can dramatically improve our patients' lives.  I look forward to coming to work every day so that I can help deliver this cutting-edge treatment.  At the same time, the most rewarding part of my job is the opportunity to guide each patient through their condition in an understandable way so that she/he can actively participate in our treatment plan. My belief is to treat each patient with clarity, care, and compassion - the same way that I would want my family to be treated."
