Dr Lian is the worst practitioner I have ever met and I am in the health care industry. His exam included providing excessive pressure to the areas where I had had prior surgery and have arthritis which would obviously cause increased and kept repeating "number" so that I could give the a number on the pain scale. He did not address any of my issues including numbness and NEVER ordered any tests i to assess my current situation. Instead he offered me 5 Cortisone shots. STAY AWAY FROM HIM!!!

I feel very comfortable with Dr. Liam.. He explains things well and seems concerned about my peripheral polyneuropathy. He gave me the nerve conduction test which confirmed my diagnosis.. Dr Liam. spends plenty of time with me and makes me feel very comfortable during my appointments.
Dr Lian took over the care of my husband afte the neurologist he was working with closed his practice. My husband was on some very strong meds for his pain and he wanted Dr Lian to wean him off of them and start him on medications that were less addictive. Dr Lian was in a hurry because he was going out of the country on vacation and wanted to take him off his meds more quickly than was recommended or safe. My husband ended up in the ER in full-blown detox. He shouldn't be allowed to practice.
