I had elevated prolactin levels due to a pituary tumor. Under doctor Liu's care I underwent an endoscopic transphenoidal resection of a prolactinoma which resulted in a sucess. Many other doctors recommended treatments that were not helping with my condition and told me it was something I had to deal with my entire life. This doctor gave me hope and provided an alternative to my condition. Thanks to him I am on the way to my normal lifestyle. Dr. Liu is an outstanding neurosurgeon. #1!

I went back to Liu.He removed my Brain Tumor 11/26/12 & I was pregnant 2months later.Most Docs can't preserve that gland. Thank God for Dr.Liu! Amen

I was first diagnosed back in 2008 after accident where I needed a CT scan. The doctors after Jefferson University found a 2cmm lesion on my brain. After seeing 2 brain surgeons that did not specialize in Skull base brain tumors, I was finally recommend to Dr. Liu in 2010. When I met with Dr. Liu I knew from that moment he was going to be my permeant Doctor. He sat with me and discussed my MRI imagines in detail. I had a Jugular forman meningioma. Resulted in 3 part brain surgery.

I had my pituitary tumor removed by Dr. Liu whom Dr. Haidri recommended and which he assured me that Dr. Liu is a Brilliant doctor. True enough, Dr. Liu is Highly Competent, Sincere in Caring for his patient or I would say Compassionate to the highest level and Brilliant. GOD has gifted him this much talent at a young age to help a lot of people. There is not much space to write and to describe how I know his sincerity but I had experienced it first hand. I am truly blessed to know Dr. Liu.
