I am absolutely satisfied with Dr. Lui and the care I am getting. He is through, never rushes the exam, I feel he is giving me the best care and support for my condition, I cannot say enough on how satisfied I am and how much better I feel.

Always have to wait somewhat of a long time. Why should a patient's appointment time be at a time when the Provider Doctor is not on the premises. Makes for a longer wait time until the Doctor arrives at the office!

I am very satisfied with my provider. Dr. Liu was understanding and knowledgeable. However, the reception team from the answering service to the front desk in the office was absolutely horrible! In fact, I recently called to connect with my doctor regarding a serious problem. I simply had a question and wanted advice from my doctor and they refused to allow me to ask the question or make an appointment despite the fact that I have a long term illness that is being triggered by another situation that has occurred. I needed medical advice and they denied me altogether. As of today, I have suffered everyday and unable to speak with the doctor who is treating me for my condition. I am disappointed with the service. I was left with no answers. The young lady would not connect with me a supervisor. She left me on hold for 10 minutes. Later she connected me with someone who did not hear my question or concern and brushed me off. I love my provider. Not so much can be said for the staff who is responsible for answer in the phones.

There is always a long wait to see Dr Liu. The appointment before this visit I waited 45 minutes before the nurse called me into the room. She apologized and said it would be about another hour before the doctor would see me. I opted to leave and reschedule.

Dr. Liu is my rheumatologist and because I have four chronic pain ailments that I see him for, I have to say he is so informative, extremely compassionate and always respectable with me.

I waited 1 1/2 hours to see the Dr. I asked he staff the wait time when I arrived and they said 15 minutes. I would have left if it was 1 1/2 hours. The Dr was nice but very eager to prescribe quite a few drugs to a new patient that he does not know any background information. I wanted to discuss other options. Taking 4 prescription meds is not an option for me. I do not react well.

On day of 1st appt. Dr Liu ordered 11 xrays and it took 2-3 months to get a follow up appt. He sent me something on MyChart, but obviously hadn't really looked at my Xrays because when i came in for follow up appt. we spoke about a potential hip replacement which he should have noticed the possible need for when he responded initially. it appears he is a great doctor, but is too over worked.

I felt comfortable with Dr. Liu, his demeanor was very pleasant and I felt at ease which is usually not the case when at the doctors. Dr. Liu discussed and entered quite a bit of information regarding his examination into my records, I feel very good about this appointment. [...], his assistant very efficient and personable.

Would have liked more time to discuss new medications the doctor ordered for me - possible lower doses, high incidence of specific side effects in general population to look out for; and when to call the doctor
