in Flushing, NY |
Had a lung aneurysm treated by Dr Li. Very experienced and professional staff. Dr. LI treats you like a friend or family. YES WELL EECOMMENDED.
in Tenafly, NJ |
I was scheduled to have a lung biopsy and was awaiting the anesthesia when Dr. Li said the area of concern in your lung is smaller than in previous Cat Scans and if it was cancer it would have increased in size. You do not need the biopsy. You can get off the Cat Scan machine and go home. He took time to explain things and I was so shocked when he said the biopsy is not needed.
in Staten Island, NY |
I recently had a nephrostomy tube inserted by doctor Li and I find him very helpful and polite and goes to extra length to address my concerns after the procedure and even replied to my text on weekends. He just protrude the calm and confidence in his work and will strongly recommend to my friends and relatives.
