The staff at the fair oaks location is completely incompetent. Enough to make me move my whole family to another practice.

Quality of care has declined drastically over the last 10 years. Including compassion, empathy, and understanding which are rarely seen any more. Almost all appointments are made with a physician assistant, or nurse practitioner. To see Dr. Liu one must schedule an appointment months out. Staff turnover is high. Office staff appear rushed and overwhelmed at times. Some staff are rude. Electronic information lacks usefulness and integrity - is mixed up, unclear, and lacks sufficient information.

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!

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.
