Specialties

Dr. David K Lieu has the following 2 specialties

  • Cytopathology

    Similar to what pathologists do, cytopathologists analyze specimens in a lab to help your doctor diagnose your condition. However, cytopathologists primarily analyze cells from tissues, tumors and lesions in order to detect disease, whereas pathologists primarily focus on bodily fluid samples.
    The most common example of this is pap smears, which cytopathologists use to detect and study the precursors to cervical cancer in women. Additionally, they help oncologists detect blood cancers and blood disorders. You can think of all pathologists as a type of lab consultant for doctors. You consult with your doctor and then he or she often consults with a pathologist who uses lab testing to confirm what they suspect your condition might be.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Core biopsy and general office visit: office staffs horrible

First, Dr. lieu is very bright and knowledgeable with what he does but he lacks in the empathy and care department. Second, he's not comforting or empathetic at all; so expect it to be a cold visit... Just as cold as his office staff. Lastly, but most importantly this is a very difficult time to go through getting a biopsy so if you have a choice see another office because this office fails all around. Forget about getting help with receiving your records: Yiwei is horrible, I don't write this lightly because I'm a forgiving person but she was a pill from day one and now a year later she's even worse when inquiring about my own records. I'm not sure if she's married to the dr. or why she's still working there but she shouldn't be working with patients at all. This is my reason for my review, the doctor is probably capable but you should be warned.
