Dr. George Liu is awesome. Thanks for putting siliver nitrate in my belly button!
in Decatur, IL |
Dr. Liu was exceptional. He went out of his way to make me feel comfortable in a stressful medical situation. He made sure my testing was done as soon as possible and I had my results within a week. That is rare these days. I will highly recommend him! Everyone on his staff was kind and caring.

Dr. Liu knows his limitations and follows them with recommendation to specialist when needed. He is a caring compassionate man, Godly man, prays with you. First time I have ever had a doctor come to the waiting room and apologize for running late! No blame on other staff - he took it all!!
