It’s a shame Dr Li is a great surgeon but everything about my surgical experience with his staff was utterly horrible. My heart rate dropped into the 20’s in the recovery room, I felt like I was dying. They sent me home anyway. I had post op problems, vomiting and intractable pain for the next 2-3 days. The office staff is deplorable. It took over 2 weeks and threatening emails to get my employment disability forms filled out. I would NEVER recommend this office to anyone.

No way, I travelled all the way from N. Y. For consultation on my horrific pain in my back. I cried he told me not to cry it would not make a difference to him. He did a terrible test on my back because I could not have MRI. He said he would get back to me. I went back to N.Y. And waited for weeks for an answer from him. He never called. I finally went to Dr. Carlos Montero. I asked him to please see why I was in so much pain. xrays showed I had no hips. I was walking bone on bone.

At almost 57 I thought my life was over with my severe back issues. 2 prior surgeries before meeting with Dr. Li. I had a fusion done. 2 titanium rods, 8 screws and a cage. I was on a walker, could not drive, horrific nerve pain. Dr. Li was the most compassionate surgeon I have ever, EVER dealt with having RA for 17 yrs. In addition, his office coordinator "Jackie" is the best of the best! After this big operation, she was my lifeline for several weeks. God bless you Dr. Li, thank you!

dr Li's negligence almost cost my son his life. He performed surgery on my son and then ignored the classic signs and symptoms of something going wrong in the days following. Surgery was Monday, Friday morning li's team said he would be moved out of the picu that day and by Friday night one of li's colleagues was performing a life saving surgery at the bedside(because li was unable to be found or reached) and transferred to CHOP. The absolute worst most arrogant man , do not let him operate !

He is truly amazing. He gave me my life back.

He's fantastic! I'm still having a hard time believing I was bedridden and on a bedpan for 8 days, until 7am. I woke up after the microdiscectomy that Doc Li performed this morning with almost no pain. Matter of fact, I was on my knees in the garden by 3 pm, picking tomatoes! I have to add that I read some of these reviews prior to making this decision, and was hesitant until I realized out of the 1,000's of surgeries he's performed there's going to be one or two unhappy people. Thanks Doc!

Love his bed side manner and confidence

Dr Li listen with full attention and showed compassion for what I had been going through. Because of his total attention to every word, he immediately told me what he believed to be wrong with me and the reasons he thought so. I knew immediately he was the Dr for me because I had been doing my own research and it all came together. The plan then was to call when I was ready to proceed with surgery which would be risky. I called and it was a success. Dr Li and LHV network are top shelf.
