    It my first visit with Dr. Liu. I have many health issues to go over with her. Unlike some doctors, she didn't throw her hands up with, "Whoa, hold on! Let's take one problem at a time!". She took notes & before leaving, she had a course of action in mind. I feel hope for light at the end of dark, very long tunnel. Thank you, Dr. Liu & staff!
    Thank you Jill. I am thrilled I was able to make a difference. Isn't it amazing what compassionate listening can do! :) My entire care team will work together to help you get to your optimal health. Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience.

    We were introduced to Dr. Liu while she was completing her internship at our Primary Care Doctor Office. We were so impressed with Dr. Liu's sincerity and thoroughness during her internship we left our Primary Care Doctor of over 20 years to follow her to her new practice.
    Hi Thanos. Thank you for that comment. That warms my heart!!! Great memories we've had... I've grown older and wiser, but my practice philosophy remains the same to this day. Show compassion. Listen and trust my patients. Educate patients on treatment options. Be their trusted adviser. And work as a team to help patients achieve their optimal health.

We have some of the most dedicated and compassionate staff you will find anywhere. And they will go above and beyond to help you with your needs. My patients and I are truly blessed to them.

    Dr. Liu is genuinely attentive and actively listens, as though what I have to say about my health or symptoms has relevance! She spends more time with me during visits than most doctors in my past, and it is time well spent. Her investment in my health goes beyond snap judgements and an Rx pad. She carefully discusses options and treatment plans and encourages my input at every step. The office makes good use of Internet communication tools as well.
    Thank you Kevin! You are picked up on my practice philosophy very well. :) We are your partners in your journey to your optimal physical AND emotional health. YOU are the most critical component of this partnership. So naturally, we promise to listen. We promise to use the latest medical technologies for your treatment. And we promise to go above and beyond to coordinate your health care needs, inside and outside of our office, and to help you navigate the healthcare system.
