Dr. Liu is an extremely nice, friendly, competent surgeon. I have been a patient of her for at least 10 years. They just do not come any better than her. Once you know her, you love her. We will surely miss her when she leaves the University of Kansas Medical Center.

Dr. Liu is a great surgeon and a truly good person. She is a good listener and always responds to my questions. She also interacts with the other medical staff in a very supportive and positive fashion. She has performed many dermatological surgeries on me over the years and they are always associated with good outcomes.

Dr Liu is the most caring and competent Mohs Surgeon I have ever been treated by. She performed 7 surgeries on me in varied parts of my body, 2 on my face and they are barely noticeable inspite of the size of the cancers. Dr Liu's attention to detail found primary optical nerve involvement during pathology inspection. Her finding this saved the sight in my left eye. Dr. Liu is my hero.

Dr. Liu has been great to deal with. She removed basal cell carcinoma from my face using the Mohs technique. She is professional, kind, and competent. She makes me feel like she is committed to being thorough and that she cares about my health. After the procedure, I had concerns as my surgical wound was healing, and she was very responsive and patient with my questions.

Dr. Liu is absolutely phenomenal!!! She took amazing care of my mother for her complicated facial skin cancer requiring Mohs surgery, plastic surgery, and subsequent follow- up visits. The results of her surgery were fantastic!!! We have continued with Dr. Liu for treatment of my mother’ skin cancer on other parts of her body as well as preventative care. Dr. Liu has one of the best personal skill sets of any physician I have met. This says a lot as I have been an RN for 41 years! My mother has been very impressed with her treatment plan, the compassion Dr. Liu extended to her, and her amazing healthcare. Thank you so much Dr. Liu!!! Wish you the best with family in CA, but sure hate to lose you from the University of KS Healthcare System. You will be greatly missed!!!

Doctor Liu is caring, understanding, a dedicated and professional doctor. Her clinic and staff does great j in keeping your appointment on time and she takes the ness. time to explain things in a way I can understand. I've seen her for quite a few yrs and she has done several mohs procedures for me. She has gone out of her way to take out only what was necessary and making sure she got all of the pre-cancer out. I credit both Dr Liu and Dr Aries for me still being here today.

She performed surgery for me for skin cancer on my forehead, major damage (to me) and it is incredible the job she did. How she managed to close it at all and not have any evidence of a scar is beyond me. Thank you, you are one awesome Doctor and surgeon.
