Dr Liu has been my neurologist for 10 years she has been professional and caring. She has managed my MS and kept me healthy. She is a wonderful doctor. We need more like her.

Dr. Liu was wonderful! She actively listened and got my diagnoses spot on. I found her to be bright, articulate, caring and extremely competent. I will return for services, as I believe she delivers university-level medical care in a compassionate way.
