"The times I feel Ive made a difference are when Im able to hear a parents true concern. If they say theyre worried about their kids weight, I know that there are often other issues hidden below the surface. When I can hear or intuit whats hidden behind what they are willing to share verbally, thats when I feel like Im beginning to help a family and support them in being healthy."

My children have been going to see Dr. Liu since they were infants (1997/98!). We have been so pleased with the care she has provided them. We appreciate her greatly. Thank you, Dr. Liu, for being a great doctor.
