I love Dr. Liu. I've been seeing him for 4 years. I tried about 2 years ago to shop around a little and get another opinion, and the other doctors I saw came up with the same treatment options, but with much less bedside manner. He always asks if I have any questions, and how things are feeling. He stays and answers all my questions. And if I have none, and things are status-quo, he makes it quick so I can leave! I know some of his other patients and they love him too.

I have been a patient for a year and a half to treat my RA. He likes to use email between visits for contact, but his responses are delayed, or not not medically sound. When you are in pain and not getting a response, it is excruciating. At my last appointment he switched my medication. Two weeks later, my insurance company has still not received his authorization and he is now on vacation. Between his delayed responses and staff screw-ups, I have been left in pain for a month now.

I came in for a trigger thumb and evaluation for RA. He told me I have RA, ordered X Rays, lab tests, a nasty drug and told me not to call for results as his staff can't explain the results and 'honestly, I'm too busy to spend time on the phone. I prefer to give results face to face.' I was sent away for 3 months. Very poor bedside. I won't return.

FIRST, HE'S ALWAYS BEHIND THE SCHEDULED APPT TIME. ALL HE DOES IS ASK A FEW QUESTIONS, FEELS MY HANDS AND KNEES AND TELLS ME THERE'S SWELLING, NO KIDDING WITH RA, AND OUT THE DOOR I GO ONLY TO RECEIVE A $400 BILL FOR A SIMPLE 10-15 MINUTE EXAM. GIVE ME A BREAK. IT'S ALL ABOUT MAKING MONEY FIRST AND A PATIENT'S HEALTH SECOND. HEALTH CARE IN AMERICA IS DEFINITLY GOING DOWNHILL.
