May 2017
Dr. Pineda-Liu is the best. She goes above and beyond.

May 2017
She was so very very concerned about my issue and all of my other medical history that she felt the best thing was to send me to Overlake ER. She was absolutely right to do so and most likely saved me from a much worse fate. She took my welfare into account and waited while I called my insurance company. She wrote up the referral and told me it was very important that I go. she said my ´owie´ looked really bad. (I knew it was worse than bad by the grimace she had) but she also was very careful in not scaring me when she didn´t have test results. She was very gentle and very firm at the same time. I haven´t had such a wonderful Preventative (Personal) Care doctor in such a long time. I am awed and amazed and grateful for all of the care and time she took with me that day. :)
