I really appreciate Dr. Liow's attitude towards me as a patient. He is caring, and I can tell he is searching out the best form of treatment for me. Even as I was waiting for my appointment, another patient was sharing how much she appreciated Liow and how she felt so much more cared for as opposed to her previous neurologist.

Dr. Kore Liow, His Doctors, and his friendly staff at Hawaii Pacific Neurology provide great treatment for my epilepsy disorder. His knowledge, treatment and advice have provided a solution to these unpredictable, monthly seizures. I've been 8 months seizure free after using his epilepsy treatment. I am extremely grateful of Dr. Kore Liow and everyone at Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience. I definitely would recommend seeing him FIRST for your epilepsy disorders.

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

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
