Philosophy

"Stroke is a top cause of disability and one of the top causes of mortality. Louisville is located in the stroke belt where the incidence of strokes is the highest in the nation. I believe each patient is unique and deserves personalized care built on standard care. Besides the high quality of stroke standard care, I am always interested in exploring new treatments and technology to improve stroke care. I participate in many clinical stroke studies to raise the standard for stroke care. "

Dr. Liu is an excellent doctor. No complaints there. The only complaint I have is that I was sent home with the wrong list of medications. I emailed the doctor and so far no one has helped me with the correct list. They just emailed me the same one I was sent home with. Which I know for sure had the wrong statin on it, two stomach medications and I believe the wrong mg of aspirin. Just need someone to clarify this.

One of the best Drs I have seen in a long time. He knew his stuff, listened, willing to help and I did not have to wait 6 months to get in. This office really went over the top and I appreciate it more than you know. Rare to find good medical care like this. He even knew what meds had just been added to my list as he made sure they had been for good care.
