I had a consultation with this doctor and would not recommend her. There was a mistake in my records, stating I had "chronic renal failure". She would not accept the fact that it might be incorrect. She accused me of trying to hide that issue from her. After a nurse confirmed with my cardiologists office that I did not have CRF, she never apologized. I have a hearing problem and I asked her to please speak up, which she didnt do. She was rude and I'd never recommend her.

Dr. Liao is a wonderful doctor. She is honest and compassionate and I would recommend her to anyone. She takes her time when she sees you, listening to all of your concerns and doesn't jump to put you on pain prescriptions. She works with you on finding the help you need by not masking the pain but finding a solution to resolve the pain completely and permanently!

Dr. Liao calls herself a pain management dr., yet she refused to prescribe a common pain reliever, valium, for me.. I have been taking vallium for 37 yrs. It has been the only drug that effectly relieves the pain in my back and neck. I have been through every procedure known to man and I remain in pain. I have seen orthopedists and pain management Dr.s. and all have prescribed vallium to relieve the pain caused by muscle spasms. I believe Dr. liao to be a quack. If you,re in pain forget her!
