Brain shunt

My wife needed a brain shunt. After some research we chose Dr Li. We have only good things to say about Dr Li. He was very personable, took his time to explain everything to us before and after the surgery. He did an excellent job with the surgery and came to check my wife early the next morning and made himself available to us for questions.

Be aware

Did an operation on my one year old son and then in the days following surgery ignored my concerns that he was doing worse rather than better. This resulted in my son needing an emergency bedside procedure from another neurosurgeon and transfer to a children's hospital. During the time my son was in crisis Dr. li was unable to be reached. My son had all the clear signs of increased inter cranial pressure and a scan was never ordered until it was a true emergency and even then it was not by concern of Dr. li. Very concerning that this man is able to practice on precious little ones. His bedside manner is terrible and he made many unprofessional and inappropriate comments to us during the duration of our experience with him, but that could have been overlooked. The ignoring textbook signs of decline after surgery is what is truly unacceptable and concerning

One Star

Dr Peter Li operated my 14 month old grandson. When the baby began to show signs of post surgery complication with increased vomiting Dr Li dismissed concerns expressed by parents and was focused more on transferring the child out of PICU to the general pediatric floor, indicating vomiting was a natural part of process after surgery. Dr Li refused to order a CT scan because "too much radiation" is not good for young children. After 3 days of increased vomiting, which is the number one indicator of increased intracranial pressure, Dr. Li finally agreed to a CT scan which showed the baby was in serious trouble. His vitals were dropping, he was in severe brachycardia, and Dr Li's partner in Neuro who was on call performed an emergency External Ventricular Drain to save this babies life. Dr Li's lack of response was negligence in every sense of the word
