Dr. Liu the staff and all the people I came in contact with were very kind and helpful

August 30, 2017

The care provider is always attentive to my physical needs and concerns regarding my pain issues. After two spinal fusions, the orthopedic surgeon referred me to Dr. Liu. She offered various options for treatment of pain which did not involve medication. I appreciated her efforts to offer me these other options which I could try.

August 23, 2017

This was my first treatment with Dr. Liu. From start to finish, it was a very good experience. Dr. Liu took a thorough history of my medical problem and listened to each of my comments. I was most impressed by her asking my what I hope to accomplish with treatment and what milestones I would like to reach in the near future. She laid out a plan of how she would like to treat me which integrated medical care, physical therapy and tasks I can do on my own, in between appointments. She followed by taking a physical exam. She was very professional and listened with respect as I spoke about my problems. When she performed the physical examination, she indicated where she found problems and educated me on what procedure she would perform. All in all, the experience was positive and for the first time in a number of years, I have hope and a "game plan" for pain management.

I had injury to knee several months ago. Was worried about slow recovery over several months. Examination was reassuring over all. Dr. Liu and Dr. Santa Barbara were very informative, patient and reassuring.

My orthopedic surgeon referred me to Dr. Liu in the capacity of a pain management specialist since he could offer me no relief for my back pain after my second spinal fusion. Dr. Liu offered me advice and various options we could try in order to manage the pain I live with constantly.
