      I brought my son in to see why his throat was getting itchy when he ate some fruits. Well, after finding out that the nurse, not the doctor, was NOT an allergist and only had training from the doctor, I was skeptical. Turns out, she diagnosed my son with severe allergies requiring years of weekly allergy shots. She said he was allergic to every grass and tree we had on our property. I initially believed her, but decided to go to a board certified allergist. He diagnosed my son with nothing. He said your son does not need allergy shots at all. He recommended OTC benadryl! Four years have passed. My son is still doing fine. Rarely has an itchy throat. This place is a insurance money mill! They poked my son with hundreds of needles. Seemed legitimate. It was a pure scam!

      Was the worst visit in my very long medical history. He was dead set on me doing allergy testing and sinus things when I explained I have had them done many many times. I have a feeling of something lodged in my throat. Difficult to eat and breathe. He ordered a SINUS ct. nothing to do with my throat. Would not listen. Was in my room for less than 5 minutes and then walked out. I had to ask if he was done. They said yes. He barely looked at me. Never again

      The customer service/patient care I received from the staff at Dr. Liu's office was absolutely remarkable. Everyone that I encountered during my visit was super friendly and made sure that I was taken care of. They really do set the standard for what it means to provide outstanding patient care!

      I drove 45 min to this clinic for allergy testing because of the reviews and I think it was worth it. The medical assistants were very friendly. Everyone was willing to answer my questions and I felt genuinely cared about during my appointment. I never thought I was being rushed or ever got the impression that I was just another patient on a checklist, which is really what I look for in healthcare providers. I won't think twice to make another 45 minute drive here if needed.

      I went to see Dr Liu last week for a sinus infection. He was very informative as to what causes sinus infections. His nurse Joseph also was very informative and caring and provided me information as to what is could be doing at home. I was seen quickly and taken care of efficiently. Recommended to anyone who has sinus issues.

      Dr Liu has done a previous surgery for my husband in the past, and recently just had a sinus surgery. Dr Liu is very personable and knowledgeable. The staff is very informative and caring of his personal well being. We would like to thank Joseph, Parth, Kellie, Madison for their explanation of the procedure and what to be expected. Highly recommended.

      Dr Liu and his staff are very friendly and professional. I had been dreading this surgery after reading some accounts of similar surgeries on the internet. However I found the recovery from surgery to be just like Dr Liu said (actually easier than he had told me). I took some tylenol number 3 the day of surgery and regular tylenol the second post op day and was off pain meds after that. I just had my seven day post op visit and I am already breathing better than I have for a long time.

      Dr. Liu’s staff and nurses are extremely nice and helpful but I do not recommend this doctor. I have been to many, many doctors and have never met someone with such terrible bedside manners. He spoke down to me in a very rushed, rude, unprofessional fashion. Extremely disappointed.

      Friendly, knowledgeable, and professional staff. Dr. Liu & his staff truly care about their patients. I was finally diagnosed properly for my allergies after visiting 2 other doctors prior over 3 years, and have been receiving my weekly allergy shots there since my allergy testing. Highly recommended.

      What a wonderful experience at entwoodlands with dr. Liu and his staff. We got the tongue tie released for my 9 yr old son. Dr. Liu and his staff are very courteous & respectful. Unlike most other doctors, Dr. Liu truly cares and works for the well being of his patients and not simply for financial return. There are very few doctors like dr. Liu who is very compassionate and understands the needs of his patients and only works for the best interest of his patients. Thank u so much you dr. Liu!

      I went off other reviews here and unfortunately did not have the same experience. This was the most awful, unorganized, inconclusive appointment I've ever been on. The dr came in looked at my ears, nose and throat, order at ct scan and left the room. I never saw him again. The allergy test was abrasive, leaving a ton of bruises. The results were drops or injection therapy, still not clarifying the reason of the visit. The entire visit (2:30-6:30) was a waste of time, money and mental anguish.

      Dr. Liu and his incredible staff are exactly what a medical office should be. I cannot say enough about the quality of care I received from him and the people around him. From my first contact with his office on the phone with Crystal, to Dr. Liu himself, I felt wanted and confident that I had come to the right place. He sets the tone in his office to make all patients feel special. His staff, including, Joseph, Pat, Elaine, and Dr. Reyes are all top notch. Do yourself a favor, see Dr.Liu.
