Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Lui is one of the best Dr.'s I have ever had. After a couple of appointments he scheduled my CT scan, blood work and my surgery. He and his staff did all the paper work all I had to do was show up! He was absolutely amazing for everything. His staff is very kind as well. I wish he was also a primary care Dr. seriously! His bedside manner made me feel comfortable.
dr.Liu, thank you and your entire office staff, and the medical staff at mountainside. ALL are the best George
Very Professional. Non-Alarmist Explains everything Answers your questions. Nice experience all around
With the referral of my primary care doctor I also checked for online referrals and was pleasantly surprised by the great reviews. I have to agree, Dr. Liu lived up to all expectations I had of him.
I thought he was sarcastic, patronizing and not at all helpful with my condition.
I was seen right away. I was tested by the audiologist prior to seeing Dr Liu and he reviewed the testing results immediately. I received a thorough exam with accompanying explanations and he spent quite a bit of time explaining each of the possible treatment options. I did not feel rushed AT ALL! I am very pleased and impressed with the quality of care I received
Dr. Liu is an outstanding doctor! I would highly recommend him. He listens to you and answers all of your questions in a wonderful, kind manner. He is very knowledgeable and I have total confidence in what he tells me.

Very knowledgeable, kind doctor. Very thorough, asks lots of questions, listens, covers all bases. Definitely knows his stuff. Total confidence in him to diagnose & help. Recommend him highly!
Dr. Liu is a highly professional, well trained physician. His going in position toward me was even a bit novel: what do you want to get out of this visit? He listened closely as to why I was there in the first place,and then proceeded to address the questions I had posed. He's thorough, smart and communicates clearly as to what he is doing and why. It was my first visit and i was pleased with his approach and results.

He not only helped daughter but he was so understanding of me the nervous momma !
Best doctor visit experience I've had ever!! Great great great !!
The office it self, as well as the staff is top notch. Dr. Liu is fantastic and very thorough. I wouldn't see anyone else but him! GREAT DOCTOR!!!!
Second appointment with the doc, both early in the a.m. Both times they took me before my appointment time. Dr. Liu is very comfortable discussing your concerns one-on-one, in a way that you can understand and relate to.
I found Dr Liu to be very professional and knowledgeable while having great bedside manner. A nice balance! His office is run very efficiently with little wait time, is clean, and his staff is friendly. I highly recommend him.
This was a short visit requested because of pain under my tongue that surfaced 10-days ago. I could not get an appointment in a timely manner that I could be seen the day the pain started. So today's visit, although better safe than sorry, was a waste of time of the good Doctor and myself. Dr. Liu had performed salivary gland surgery 3 years ago and I thought something might have been related to that previous gland removal. It was not.
Dr. Liu is super good doc, he listens to your problem and gives a spot on diagnosis. The best ENT I've used, wouldn't think of using anyone else.
Very friendly and easy to understand your issues.
He explained things fully and was not in a rush
Very nice and attentive to your needs. Works hard to get to the bottom of things! Staff is pleasant and wait time is not long at all, very professional.
Dr. Liu is great. The wait time in his office is not long at all and once you are seen you do not feel rushed. He takes the time to listen and thoroughly explain testing results. I trust being under his care.
Concerned about my concerns
I loved the online documentation. The consult was a bit rushed to my liking, but he did use the time efficiently. His treatment path was on point was quite change from the staid ways of previous ear specialist.
Dr.Lui took my concerns very seriously and thoroughly assessed my situation. I was contacted as soon as my results came back and put on the proper medications. It was my first time dealing with an ENT issue and I am happy that I found him.
He was nice but no personality the office exam took less than 15 minutes, left feeling issue was not resolved Felt like the DR. didn't listen to my problem or care what I was saying. Wasn't given any suggestions or alternatives, was told everything looks fine felt rushed.
DrLIU is a very competent and exceedingly professional physician
The doctor is very professional, helpful and nice. I would highly recommend him
He was great. Friendly, personable, and listened to all my problems before making his decision. Great experience. Will be back if I ever have any issues.
It was painless .
Dr. Liu was professional, thorough, and very easy to talk to. He listened attentively and helped me figure out the best approach for my symptoms. I was comfortable during the entire exam because of his calm demeanor and excellent skills. He came highly recommended and I can understand why! The office staff was friendly and approachable.
Dr. Liu runs a great office and he's an excellent doctor. Many local offices should learn from his operation. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Dr. Liu was very thorough and made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Liu was courteous and speaks TO you like a person, not AT you. He always answers your questions and leaves the door open in case you think of something else you may want to ask. He also respects your time and never keeps you waiting. When it's your appointment time, you are seen!
The receptionist is so sweet and professional. Soft spoken and just overall a pleasure . Thank you for making us feel welcome
Having never met Dr Liu before I was immediately impressed by his concern, insight and he was most helpful in looking at my problem! His manner and presence pleased me and I will return!
I felt very comfortable in his office. His staff was friendly and professional. I have never been to an office where I didn't wait less than 15 mins. Which tells me he does not double book his appointments and takes the time needed with his patients. He was very friendly and spoke with me about my diagnosis in a very positive and straight forward manner. Willing to answer any of my questions and encouraged me to write any down that might have come up after my visit and to call with them.
Very happy with the thorough exam and his clear explanations.
Dr Liu is an excellent and caring doctor. His staff is always professional and courteous.
Professional and very impressive.
I was impressed. The audiologist did a thorough job in testing my hearing. Dr. Liu was professional, yet easy to understand. I'd definitely recommend him and return.
Dr. Liu was professional and attentive to my questions and concerns
I wrote a glowing and well-deserved review of Dr. Liu prior to my parathyroidectomy. I am now almost a week post-op and saw him today for a follow-up exam. Unfortunately, I have had to work with four different doctors' offices, not to mention two hospitals, within the last six months. He and the members of his staff are exemplary and made a difficult process so much easier. I feel so much better and appreciate that his ability and skill have enhanced my quality of life. One of the advantages of living in this congested Metro area is that an individual has many health care choices. I feel blessed that I chose Dr. Liu as my surgeon.
Very nice experience. Very pleased with the office and the Dr. Will surely recommend .
He was very professional and thorough. He fully explained everything and had a great bedside manner.
Excellent! Explained every procedure and what to expect.
I was referred to Dr. Liu by my endocrinologist who diagnosed me with hyperparathyroidism. While I had scheduled an appointment with him for a later date, I called his office to ask for an earlier appointment, as I was not feeling well at all. His receptionist called back within two hours to accommodate my request. I arrived early for my appointment and was seen immediately. All paperwork had been filled out prior to my arrival, as his staff had emailed forms to me as soon as I hung up the phone after making my first appointment. Dr. Liu is very thorough, professional and personable, answering all my concerns and questions in a respectful and patient manner. I am very confident in his ability, knowledge and expertise and am very glad that I was referred to him. His Health Grades profile is impressive and he obviously deserves the Top Doctor ratings he has consistently received.
My daughter had an excellent experience. We only waited a few minutes to see the doctor. He was professional, extremely knowledgeable, and set our minds at ease. He suggested a simple treatment for a condition that no other doctors had even noticed. He also knew something about a related condition (not even his specialty). Very impressed. Office staff was very friendly and efficient.
I liked Dr. Liu's personable approach. He did not advocate for unnecessary treatment, he was very skillful in his diagnostic approach, and he clearly communicated what he was going to do which put me at ease. I would gladly recommend him.
He is very thorough and has a patient, attentive manner.
Surgery went fine and right on time I have a great deal of confidence in Dr. Liu.
Please, do not wait see Dr. Liu. He will diagnose your problem and treat you correctly. This is a top notch Dr. that you are lucky to have helping you. Outstanding!
Dr. Liu explained to me his observation of my situation and recommended we watch how I do in the next couple of months to see if there is any improvement. I will be returning for a follow-up in 2 months.
everyone was very nice friendly waiting room nice cozy leather couches very neat and clean Dr. Liu very nice takes his time with you and explains things with you highly recommend this office.
office is great and so organized and the doc gets the job done
Dr. Liu is a great listener who combines his extensive knowledge and experience with compassion, kindness and a friendly manner. His warm, caring staff provide effective backup. All in all, a completely positive experience.
Outstanding! Dr. Liu is very knowledgeable and was very friendly. Thank you!
Well run office and caring Dr.
Excellent service. Highly recommended.
Dr. Liu is very knowledgeable and is conservative with his treatment, rather overtreating or overtesting.
Wait time was longer than expected, being that i was the only one in the office on a Friday Afternoon. But he'd knowledgable, knows his stuff, gave me good medical advice, and cleaned out the wax in my ears well.
Dr. Liu takes the time to listen to your problem and throughly explains the medical situation. The office is well run!

Great as always

Dr. Liu is very knowledgeable. He took the time to answer my questions and explain. He made sure I was comfortable during the examination and has a great bedside manner. His staff is very nice and helpful also.

Professional and efficient. He is well trained in his field. Would recommended him to anyone who needed a doctor in this field.
Dr. Liu was terrific!! I have had sinus issues for a long time and he knew how to diagnose and made positive recommendations to remedy this in the future. He is also very pleasant to work with considering how the world of doctors is usually a rush rush situation. Never felt pressure to end the appointment time. I would highly recommend him. Carolyn R.
Everything about my visits was professional ,as comfortable as a visit to the DR. could be, and quick. I was seen right away on both of my visits and Dr.Liu made me feel comfortable the entire time,explaining what he was doing and why. The woman working at the front desk (I'm sorry but not sure of her name) was very friendly and made me feel welcome right away. All in all nothing but a great experience.
Very satisfying and helpful. Explained everything so I could understand. Very professional and friendly.
Very helpful; so glad to have found his practice!
This was my first experience with Dr. Liu and I was very pleased with his professionalism, expertise and courtesy. Also, my original appointment was about ten days out and was called by his staff when they had a cancellation for today and asked if I'd like to get the appointment. Since I wasn't feeling well and anxious to see the doctor, this was most welcome! Generally a good experience all around.
It was an excellent experience as always. Cynthia is an excellent receptionist, helpful and friendly. Dr. Liu is so wonderful,very professional and knowledgable. I highly reccomend him, in fact I have done so.
I have been treated by Dr. Liu for several years. Always a pleasure!
Explained everything in detail and wasn't rushed
Even though I wrote my questions on paper in advance, I forgot to ask one key question after going after the test results. I called the office within 10 minutes of leaving to ask if I could speak with Dr. Liu briefly just to ask the one question. I was disappointed to hear a firm "no, you cannot speak with the doctor." I had to relay a message to the receptionist, who will relay it to the doctor and get an answer and then she (not Dr. Liu) will call me back. Is it too much to ask for the doctor to spend 5 minutes with me on the phone? We are all human and forget things sometimes; do doctors no longer speak on the phone? I understand doctors are busy but not even 5 minutes for a new patient?
I was very pleased with my visit and would highly recommend him. The office staff was extremely pleasant and professional
He's the best. I've been going to him for years and he's a true professional. Wouldn't trust anyone else with my health.
Dr. Liu's office is immaculate. His receptionist/secretary is very friendly and organized. Dr. Liu has an excellent bedside manner and took the time to explain everything he was doing and observing as well as answer my questions.
Dr Liu is amazing. Very thorough and answered all my questions. Highly recommended!!!!
Dr. Liu has always been pleasant, professional, and patient with questions. He explains things thoroughly, in layman's terms, and is clearly very knowledgeable in his specialty areas. After consulting with him several times, I have decided to chose him to perform my surgery instead of another doctor I had previously consulted with. He doesn't sugarcoat things, but tells you realistically what to expect after surgery with regard to pain and discomfort and I appreciate his honesty. Other doctors minimized the possibility of pain, swelling, and bruising after surgery, which is unrealistic and unfair to the patient who is trying to make an important life decision.
I was satisfied with my first experience with Dr. Liu. The office environment was immaculate, the front-office staff was professional, and the doctor was professional, yet he had an approachable manner and was very knowledgeable.
Very thorough and professional. Always makes me feel at ease.
I was so nervous about my appointment, knowing I was most likely going to need surgery. The minute Dr. Liu introduced himself and told me he had already reviewed my file, and then proceeded to talk me thru my options, I knew I was in good hands. He was so thorough and explained every detail in terminology I understood. He was so kind, and compassionate. I left his office very informed and feeling confident that Dr. Liu was the right surgeon for me. I would also like to comment on his wonderful, professional staff. From making my appointment and scheduling me asap, to all the necessary paper work, to the kind greeting when I walked in. If I could give Dr. Liu and his staff a higher rating then 5 Stars I would!
Very knowledgable. Gets the story and gives feedback without sugesting expensive procedures. Told me if things got worse to call for another visit
Dr. Liu was very professional. He exhibited very good bedside manner. He is exceedingkly knowledgeable in his field and explains things extremely well and very understandably. Heis honest and forthright. His office is state of the art. i would highly recommend him-- he has been a great help to me.

Very attentive and clear. Very helpful. Appointment for broken nose, but helped with sinus issues too.
Dr. Liu has a great "bedside" manner and explains exactly what he is doing. I also feel that he understands what needs to be done and uses his professional judgement for what works best for the patient.
Good doctor and explains everything
visits with Dr. Liu are always complete and very informative.
This visit was my usual 6-month check-up with Dr. Liu as a follow-up to surgery he performed in July 2010 to remove nasal polyps and correct a severely deviated septum. Since the surgery I can breath and sleep normally again, feel healthier, and live a "normal" life. Dr. Liu is an excellent physician and surgeon, a true gentleman, and a fine human being.
Very professional. Explained condition, diagnosis, and treatment options in detail. Office is clean, and exam rooms have modern equipment. Good communication with front desk. Recommend.

Dr Liu excellent, staff professional and friendly . So glad I found this doctor - happy patient!
Dr. Liu is wonderful. I had gone to 3 ENTs prior who would spend no more than 3 minutes with me. Dr. Liu was the first ENT I found that really seems to cares about his patients rather than turn around. He took his time going over my issue and really got to the root cause.
Dr. Liu was excellent. He made me feel comfortable while walking me through my exam. He offered options for treatment and answered all my questions with warmth and patience (and I always have a great deal of questions). The staff was pleasant and efficient. Overall I had a great experience.
Dr. Liu knows his practice and is no nonsense person. I like his professionalism but he could be a little warmer personally. I would see him again.
The doctor was very informative staff was pleasant.
Knowledgeable, high-tech, responded quickly (within 2 hours) to message left with receptionist.
