How likely are you to recommend Dr. Liu?

(Select your rating)
My grandmother was diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia many years ago and in the summer of 2020 her symptoms associated with this condition worsened severely. With medication no longer providing her relief, I sought a consultation with Dr. Liu on her behalf. He recommended a MVD of the trigeminal nerve, which he eventually performed. This was definitely the most invasive option....especially because at the time, she was 83 years old, and as such this was a very high risk surgery. Following the surgery in Sept 2020, my grandmother was off of pain medications for trigeminal neuralgia and pain-free. Throughout this process Dr. Liu and his staff have been very informative, professional and kind to my grandmother. Good bedside manner too. I would definitely recommend Dr. Liu as a neurosurgeon and hope that he continues to treat and explore difficult neurologic issues. Thank you Dr. Liu!!!
