Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Liao I am a cardiologist who has been at Duke for over 15 years. I grew up in North Carolina and am proud to call Durham home. My father was a physician and my mother was a nurse so I always thought about going into medicine. Cardiology came most naturally to me during medical school. The best part of being a doctor is the feeling you get from having genuinely helped someone in a meaningful way. I enjoy practicing at Duke because I get to work with a lot of smart people who are dedicated to helping patients. When patients have challenging issues Duke is a great place to receive care because of the access we have to top-notch providers and resources. In my spare time I enjoy reading history and spending time with my young child.
