Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Liu "My focus is to always treat the patient not just the disease. I've told people many times that I value quality of life as highly as the quantity of life. Therefore, I use every resource at my disposal to address the problems. When treating neuroendocrine cancer, it is absolutely imperative to approach it with a multi-disciplinary approach because it crosses into so many different medical subspecialties. When we are successful, these people can live good, healthy lives. I find that giving the patient time and respect are critical to developing a sense of trust, because it is a team effort with the patient in the center. Our goal at the RMCC is to build a home for neuroendocrine patients, where they can feel comfortable that everyone has experience in this rare disease and all their questions can be answered. By having the most advanced expertise, imaging techniques, clinical trials, and treatments available all in one center we can provide patients with the best hope for a healthy life."

He was incredibly insensitive to our concerns, did not show any interest providing any care, and top of everything he was 2 hours late. You should find someone else.

I have been treated for colon cancer for more than 9 years. When radiation killed my gall bladder Dr. Liu removed it. Of all the surgeons I've had over the past 9 years Dr. Liu was the best. In addition to being on the cutting edge for neuroendocrine disorders he also has a great, very...more
