Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Liow "Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience Institute's commitment is aligned with our crossed disciplinary effort to implement evidence-based patient care paths in a fully integrated care delivery model.  Our patient centered care model allows our patients to access care through a variety of specialized, disease specific centers.   Each center incorporates an interdisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and management of a specific neurological condition, harnessing the expertise of different specialists in a close collaborative manner working towards delivering the best care for the complex neurological conditions.  

We are Hawaii's first fully integrated multidisciplinary neuroscience specialists working in a patient centered care model. We believe that collaborative group care is not only better, but it is more effective and more efficient. Our core values include innovative care in which our specialists provides the latest and most advance approach to the disease state and lead the state in neuroscience research and clinical trials. We believe care should include preventive measures, wellness and healing for both mind and body. We believe in holistic care and that care can take place in different settings for comfort and values.  Most of all, our patients remain the focus of all we do and care should be tailored made just for you.

 Diagnostic Expertise, Advanced Treatment Modalities

HPN specialists employ the latest and most advanced diagnostic capabilities to solve and diagnose complex neurological conditions.  These services will be made available at HPN or working with facilities on campus including 3TMRI, Digital EEG, Long Term EEG, EMG, Carotid Doppler ultrasonography, full battery of neuropsychological testings including biofeedback. 

Relevant and Hawaii Specific Research

HPN physicians and scientists lead the state in bringing neuroscience clinical trials to the island so that Hawaii patients do not have to travel to the mainland to seek these advanced research treatments. "

Honolulu, HI |
He seen my mother about 1 month ago. I felt like he didn’t care of my concerns and just gave her whatever medication he felt like even though i was scared of the side effects he didn’t explain anything. He also ordered an EEG which I researched that’s it is not necessary for my mother who was diagnosis Dementia. He’s a crook just wanting to use all my mothers money. I am not ever going back again! Also his MA I don’t know her name but she’s Asian she’s was really rude too

kaneohe, hi |
His office has way too many turnovers in staff. Too many doctors barely work there longer than 6 months. He barely spends 10 minutes for an exam...he is way overbooked and there is always confusion in his kingdom. His techical assistants don't seem to know or care what or how they are doing. One checked us in and didn't even know how to use the computer to enter my prescriptions or send an email. Where I queried her about She said her 7-year-old daughter does all the computer work in their house

After the first seizure in 2010 I was put on a variety of meds, which left me in a dazed state. My quality of life sometimes left me very depressed and didn't want to go on. Also, I continued to have both complex and grand mal seizures. Dr. Liow did a series of tests and changed my meds. I have been seizure free and feels fantastic. I recommend Dr. Liow to anyone with neurological problems.

Dr. Liow' staff members are helpful and kind. They never seem rushed and are very reassuring. They keep the appointments within 10-15 minutes of the actual scheduled time. Dr. Liow takes his time explaining why he recommends a certain medication and asks how it is working. One medication made me grouchy so he changed it and i saw improvement in my mood which helps my overall health. His lifestyle recommendations are reasonable and he praises patients when they are doing well.

Dr. Liow is treating my son for a seizure disorder. Unfortunately, my son suffers from psychiatric difficulties as well. Dr. Liow prescribed appropriate medication and took additional steps to determine any correlation between both neurological problems. His actions clearly indicate high levels of knowledge and experience. Dr. Liow has shown us admirable personal attributes too. He truly cares about my son and does everything possible to improve his health and quality of life.

Whenever I see Dr Liow I feel cared for and heard. He's a very compassionate Doctor with excellent diagnostic skills that puts me at ease. When I first started seeing him I was struggling with many side effects from different anti epileptic meds. Dr. Liow knew the exact problem and switched my medicines.
