Very nice doctor, excellent with explaining the details and options regarding the issue I came in to see him about. Not a quick-fix issue so he will see me again in a month. I would definitely recommend him. Office staff wasvery welcoming, quick and efficient. The office was clean and inviting, although I was ushered right in for my 9:30 appointment so I did not sit down in the waiting area at all.

Dr. Liu is absolutely wonderful. Very warm and friendly. He takes his time with his patient's and explains everything in easy-to- understand terms. He listens and he answers any questions. There was only a 5 minute wait time, which is great.His administrative assistant is very helpful and also very pleasant. As far as his medical ability goes, Dr. Liu is top notch. I work in the medical profession and he has a reputation for being one of the best! From a personal standpoint, myself and my family members could not be happier with the medical care we receive from him. Highly recommended on every level.

Dr. Liu is wonderful. Aside from being incredibly thorough and informative, he was happy to answer all my questions. He was genuinely concerned about how I felt about having (necessary) surgery, and his post-op scheduling made it so simplefor me to plan everything I needed to do. He could not have done more to make the whole experience as good as it could be.

I was having treatment with a therapist for vertigo. The exercises were not doing anything. Then I saw Dr. Liu. He has a very welcoming bedside manner. He explains things with clarity and then he gets down to the problemat hand. He gave me a set of exercises which I followed faithfully. I recovered from the vertigo 5 days from the start of treatment. A miracle for me since I had this condition for four months with no relief. I highly recommend Dr. Liu. I've been singing his praises ever since.

I met with him briefly. Dr. Liu was kind and solved my problem of ear wax immediately. He was very gentle and assured me that ear wax buildup was normal, that I worried needlessly. Thank you for allowing me to hear the birds chirping in this new season!

Dr. Liu is a great person, provides good advice and gives you a good understanding about whats going on. The only thing that this office needs to work on is customer service. I was told I needed a sinus surgery, whichis fine, one of the medical Assistant/front receptionist gave me a call and left some broad information about pricing, and said on the voicemail "call me when you get this message so I can give you the numbers in further detail." I reached out the next day and another medical assistant/front receptionist answers. I explain the reason why I called and she says "I thought the other medical assistant/receptionist gave you this information already and you cant afford it." I explain, what was said on my voicemail and she replies, well she isn't here and she is on vacation and want be back until the following week. I can check her files." She says I can get back to you on Monday. Its only 2:36 pm, and they close at 5pm. I said can I follow back up with a call, she says no I will call you. Very unprofessional, because I'm the one having trouble breathing, I'm the one that is having cough attacks I'm the one that has been on all type of medication that isn't helping anymore for 7 months, so I don't have any other choice but to get the surgery. She calls back, explains that it says that someone gave you the information already, I explain again that it was broad number. She respond's I cant give you the numbers from the hospital charges but I can give you what we charge, but other Medical assistant/ receptionist gets back from vacation next week and she can provide it then. She continues we don't have openings for surgery openings until March, so the information doesn't matter but 2 days ago I scheduled the surgery the following Tuesday, and it was confirmed but we found that my deductible hasn't been met. Very disappointed in the place, because I chose to come to this office and turned down the referral that was giving. She says "I'm the only one here out of 3 so I'm not going to spend time on the phone with insurance company to find out about pricing." Some advice, If you need more help, or feel overwhelmed because your the only one in the office at the front desk then talk to the doctors or whoever about it and hire more help. Will not return to use this doctors again. If the roles were reversed and they were in my shoes and these happen....?

I have already told my family how good I feel Dr. Liu is. I would recommend Dr. Liu to anyone who asked if I know of a good ENT doctor. What won me over: My wait was short, I had completedthe initial visit forms online. When I was told what room to go into, less than 3 minutes the doctor came in. Dr. Liu explained the process of the examination, what it would feel like, and he talked to me as it was happening. This was so soothing and if you wish to view the treatment on the TV monitor you can. I was impressed and very satisfied with my treatment by Dr. Liu.

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 dowas 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.
