I have seen Dr. Lien in the hospital (Good Sam in Puyallup), where I had an infected hematoma in my lung that formed due to a poorly placed chest tube from a previous pneumothorax--I was in the hospital for 10 days and she animatedly helped with my case. I have also seen Dr. Lien outside of the hospital for the management of my prophylactic HIV medication. She is a warm, friendly person that I would recommend to anyone and will continue to do so.

Very good Doctor! Dr. Lien was the second specialist recommended to help with my medical condition which was first thought to be coming from one of my artificial hips. She was able to narrow the cause and better identify the infection and I'm now on my second series of follow-ups for which she as offered better solutions that have improved results and comfort ordered by the other specialist. She is straight forward and has a no nonsense approach with an 'out-going' positive attitude.

Dr. Lien accomplished in 30 seconds what would have taken us 30 days! She is direct yet personable, answered all our questions and really cared about our concerns. She made sure we understood the plan going forward and left us feeling educated and optimistic about the diagnosis.

Total lack of respect for her patients concerns. Very late and insensitive
