I agree with Beverly B. I've been a patient of Dr. Liu for almost 10 years, and I have not experienced what ketu10 or FlyingCO describe. In my experience, she goes over and above to help manage expenses by thoroughly thinking over the necessity of procedures and providing samples before prescribing new drugs. I often call in with questions and get them answered over the phone as they relate to my particular situation. From what I read below, my guess is that in the one situation, they may have, for example, an HMO which requires an office visit for a referral to another doctor, and the second may have a specific and chronic health situation which legally requires a regular blood test to support a refill. I'd be wary of a doctor who DIDN'T call you in to review your symptoms in that kind of situation.
All in all, I feel that Dr. Liu is a very good doctor. I've been through a number of GPs and specialists in the Orange County area, and everyone had something about their practice that wasn't terrific - even doctors I've been to who are on the "best doctors of Orange County" list! I will say she has had some turnover in her office staff which may have contributed to the situations described below. However, Dr. Liu runs a consistent, caring practice and I definitely recommend her.
Dr. Liu goes the extra mile for her patients. I don't agree that she's money obsessed. She takes her time and remembers my problems. She is an exceptional Dr.
Good Dr but makes u visit her office for almost everything – I agree with the comment below. Dr. Liu is a very nice person but she calls you to her office everytime and charges you. She can simply answer your queries on phone but she wont do that. It hardly takes 2 mins in her office but she prefers seeing you in her office. Even if you need a refill she will first ask you to come to her office n then tell u to go for blood checkup again. She can directly ask u to go for it. Its not done after that also, She will again call u even if u results are normal. Its such a pain to get a refill also every six mnths.
Great MD but too $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ hungry – Both my wife and I used to share my medical insurance from work. We both have scheduled annual physical exams with Dr Liu for the past 6 years. My plan allows us to have a free annual exam for each covered person. My wife always have no issues when it comes to billing. For me I have been billed almost $300 because they code the bill wrong when it is sent to insurance company. The Dr office will not check my portion to "routine visit" to have the bill 100% covered by insurance. There is no difference between my visit and my wife's visit.....we are both in the same exam room together and leave the room together. Dr Liu asks the same questions (of course there are certain questions pertaining to the different genders) . They will not change the billing code. Earlier this year, my wife changed medical insurance. Her new insurance requires a $30 co-pay for routine visits. She had her annual exam at the beginning of the year. Six and half months later she needed a referral from Dr Liu's office for a dermatologist. She called for referral but was refused because they told her she needs to come in for another routine exam (being more than 6 months). She went and paid the $30 and the "routine" exam. Th exam consist of "What can I do for you?", "I need to see a dermatologist", "Ok, I will be right back". Indeed Dr Lui came right back with the referral. No check up, no other question, nothing other than another $30 co-pay from her and more $$$ from the insurance company. If you are going to charge for an unnecessary annual exam then I believe the Dr should do the unnecessary annual exam. Dr Lui is really nice and the staff is very friendly but for me I have to look for another Dr. It is really a shame.
She's Great! – I've been a patient of hers for so many years... I've lost count.
I find her upbeat, concerned, organized, and firm when she has to be. She's also very informed on new procedures and medications. She never talks down to me, which I appreciate because I'm a know-it-all!
I always suggest her as a primary physician, it's their own fault if they don't sign up.
She cares about her patients. – Dr. Liu is the only doctor I have ever met that has a personality and truly cares about her patients. She doesn't look at you like a dollar sign. She really cares about your well being. I am so glad I found her. I drive over 30 miles to see her. She is worth the distance.
