He is an innovative in surgery and willing to take on patients no other doctor will take on. However there are sometimes unforeseen side effects but that is what comes with being at the forefront. I will miss seeing him at Penn State Hershey medical center and I wish him well wherever he ends up.

Dr Liu saved my life. He is the most compassionate caring surgeon I have ever come across. He gave me my life back and no words will ever be enough to show him how grateful I truly am to him. He placed a stent that correct my blood flow in my brain and I have felt completely alive since. Thank you. You are truly amazing.

He did not even meet me but was even on vacation and looked at my scans and was willing to work with me and he is the best doctor I could have asked for.

He is compassionate, highly skilled, and was willing to help me when no one else would. He placed my transverse sinus stents, to alleviate intracranial hypertension. My quality of life has improved drastically!

I was amazed at how quickly I was able to get an appointment. He spent an hour with my wife and I at the initial appointment. He asked us numerous times if we had questions. When he said the next step was a surgical test, I was afraid it would be months. He said he would do it in less than a week. He is fantastic as is his entire staff!

Straight forward approach to the serious procedure I am about to have with him. He instantly generated trust with his frankness and confidence yet compassionate approach. He took lots of time to explain it to me and he set back and waited for me to stare at the images and think of more questions when most Dr. would have used the silence to dismiss themselves. While I am not looking forward to the procedure I am confident in the surgeon I have chosen. Kristi on his staff is also great.

Dr. Liu is amazing. He knows what he can do and what he can't do and is conservative in doing unnecessary tests or treatment. He took a chance on me and I'm so glad to have found him. He genuinely cares about his patients and personally followed up with me for weeks after post op. His staff are also great and go out of their way to help you and make your appointments as easy as possible.
