He listens very closely while taking notes. He ask a lot of questions about history.

Despite my mother unable to lift legs, no reflexes in her knees, bells palsy and excruciating pain, this quack sent her to rehab and suggested counseling for stress. Didn't even run one neuro test. He noted in the medical records that she was possibly seeking drugs and secondary gain. HE THOUGHT SHE WAS FAKING! She nearly died that night in rehab and spent over a year in medical facilities including a 45 day stay in ICU on life support. She had a neurological condition called GBS. RUN AWAY FAST

I will make this simple. After Having to get a copy of my report from Dr. Liu and taking it back to my Doctor just to have it looked over and explained to me, I was unpleased. Dr. Liu told me that its all in my head and went over nothing with me. My doctor informed me of something much worse and expressed his unhappiness and disapointment of Dr. Liu. Save yourself the trouble with Dr. Liu

I would not take a flea off my Pekingese to him..he is rude and a smart mouth. I am going to St. Louis to fine a real DR.

Dr. Liu took the time to understand my health issue, conducted physical exam, ordered tests based on the need. He was very good at explaining my issue and discussing treatment plan Dr. Liu's office staff really showed their passion and care of their patients. They called my insurance and hospitals to work out the details on my procedures, which saved me lots of time, effort, and frustration. I'd recommend Dr. Liu to my family and friends in a heart beat.

I am a medical professional myself that has now been dealing with an unknown brain injury for over 3 years. This man (and I use that term lightly) had the nerve to tell me I shouldn't be concerned with finding a diagnosis because the damage was already done and why did I find it necessary to get answers. He refuses to listen, becomes very argumentative and a disgrace to the medical profession. I was appalled.
This guy does not listen.just stares at computer whole time.cant understand him.seen him several times, told him meds havent worked for complex partial seizures.he prescribed a med keppra with tegratol...and side effects were horrible.could not take anymore.he denies prescribing keppra.says he did not have records of.i have proof from pharmacy.after this he was very hostile & refused to listen to me about other new occuring symptoms, said too many symptoms to deal with, so livin w headaches, etc
