Some interesting reviews here. Dr Liu did surgery on my back for a herniated disc approx a year ago. All I can say is it transformed me from a shut in to an active wife, mother and grandmother. He was amazingly professional and caring through the entire process. His assistant Stephanie was also wonderful. Incidentally, Dr Liu introduced me to a student assistant prior to surgery and assured me he Dr Liu would be doing the surgery. I also checked for malpractice proceeding upon seeing an earlier posting....there was none.

I was scheduled for spinal surgery. The day of the surgery after I had flown from Washington state and my son was fighting the LA traffic and we were almost ther he told me he had a bigger surgery to do and could I come back in a couple of months. His nurse called me back and said they had it covered and come on in whatever that meant. I only saw him for five seconds when I arrived. I found out another doctor? intern did my operation. I also found out they left a 7 mm metallic sliver in my body and wrote that they were in a hurry to complete the operation. The radiologist told them to take another view because there was too much metal to see under it but did not. He is all about the money, my surgery wasn't paying that much. I am in constant pain with stabbing at night when I lay on my back. BEWARE of Dr. Liu.

I can't say enough great things about Dr. Liu. I had gone to many doctors who were considered some of the best, but Dr. Liu had the best solution to my spine problems. All the doctors agreed I needed surgery. After consulting with 5 I had surgery by dr. Liu and healed very well. I have no pain and a life again thanks to Dr. Liu!! I tell my co-workers and friends to see him when they complain about back and neck problems. He was born for this!

I have to disagree with a prior reviewer. Dr. Liu is a personable down to earth guy, and an excellent surgeon. He is a pioneer in minimally invasive surgery and I am so lucky I found him! I went to several surgeons and he was the only one not to dive right into a massive surgery. I feel better than ever and owe my life to Dr. Liu!
