Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

I was kept waiting in exam room for more than an hour. But he showed me x-rays, discussed treatment options for future, discussed shoes. He seemed to be over-extended in number of patients in practice.

I love all my provident providers they are all excellent doctors I would not switch them for anybody else and I commute from Corona to San Pedro and to Redondo Beach to see my doctors I would not change it for anything

I usually see Dr. Liu every 3 months because I have an ongoing condition that needs to be monitored by a specialist. I make my next follow up appts for the following months before I leave his office or I may not be able to get them as scheduled. His patient load is very heavy, but he always finds time to talk & discuss any problems I am having at that particular appt. It is difficult to be seen by him if I need attention in between my regular visits. He does answer questions via email on the computer in between visits if I need assistance on a timely basis, or if I need medications refilled. Even if it's difficult to get in to see him in between my regular scheduled visits, I would not trade him or some of his staff for another physician just for convenience. He & his staff are very attentive & comforting when you need it the most.

I'm bone-on-bone in both knees and needed another shot (which the doctor gave me). I'm concerned about getting knee replacements too soon as there are other procedures being explored that might allow me to keep my 'original parts'. I'm thankful that Dr. Liu is not in a hurry to get to surgery! And is taking the time to help me understand what's going on and what can happen!!!

08/16/2016
I had to wait over 40 minutes to finally see the doctor, but I didn't mind because Dr. Liu always spends quality time with me to discuss my problems regarding my condition. We discussed decreasing the steroids I have been on & how I should to it slowly so there wouldn't be anyside effects. Getting to see him is always worth my wait.

Care and concern excellent. [...] I have trouble getting an appointment [...] and usually have to wait 1 hr (sometimes more) to see the Dr. The office is overburdend with the new patients. Some, have never seen a Dr. He is a good Dr. and will not be rushed into inaccurate DX.

I have had a bit of trouble getting Rx refills. I believe that it is as much the fault of my mail order company and the office staff not understanding my problem.

it's usually difficult to schedule an appointment with Dr. Liu since he is so busy. […] I don't generally mind the wait time because that means he is spending important time with a patient, […]. my appointment means important time spent with my doctor to air problems due to my chronic condition. Dr. Liu has never dismissed me without discussing any questions I have or reviewing blood tests results. I see him about every 3 months, so my appointment time is very precious. His nurse & staff in the office are very professional & caring.

Dr Liu was typing on the computer most of the time I was there. [...]
80

03/17/2016
Dr. Liu is always extremely busy. As a result, I have to wait for extended periods of time before I'm actually seen by him. This is difficult for me because of my pain level as well as it's not very comfortable to be sitting in a little chair just waiting, and waiting. There have been several times that I've had to leave because I simply could not stand to just sit there and wait any longer, in fact the last time, I had been there for TWO HOURS and I finally decided that I just had to leave.

03/17/2016
I don't ever feel as a patient that my time is perceived to be valuable. I arrived on time for my appointment, was checked in late, and had to wait over an hour from that point to see my provider, […]. I had a total of 7 minutes to discuss my condition with the doctor before I had to leave to go back to work. I was not planning on having to step away for work for 2.5 hours for 7 minutes of interaction with the doctor. I don't feel that my needs were addressed, nor were my questions answered. If your appointments are running behind, you should have the ability to call or text and let people know you're running late.

[...] has early-onset Alzheimer's, so we very much appreciated the fact that the visit was all-inclusive and required tests could be done right there in the office suite. Regarding test follow-up, although no one called with results, we were alerted to the results via MyChartor, and we were able to view them there.
