I´m here at this clinic location because of Doctor Pineda-Liu....if she were to go to another location, I would follow her....that´s how much I value her as my care provider.
Alwaysgenuine concern and time taken for questions. Extremely happy with my Doctor.
Dr. Pineda-Liu is an exceptional physician that goes the extra mile in caring for her patients. She is respectful and kind, qualities not found in every physician and I appreciate her very much.
Dr Pineda-Liu is wonderful and extremely supportive. I feel lucky to have her as my doctor!
I was very impressed with my doctor. This was our first time meeting following a recent move to the area. She demonstrated care and really worked to help understand my issue.
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. :)
Dr. Pineda-Liu is the best. She goes above and beyond.
Dr P-L is an outstanding listener, provides complete explanations to my questions, and is a very patient person with this particular patient.
Dr. Pineda-Liu is fabulous. Caring, thoughtful and a great listener. Love her!!
My primary care MD is amazing. Very friendly, asks good questions, proactive and definitely informative.

She is a great Dr. Timeliness is the only issue.
I´m very happy with my doctor. She is fantastic and sharp.
I am thrilled I found her she is wonderful!
Great knowledge and easy to talk to and work with.
Dr. Pineda-Liu is so patient and caring every time I come to see her.
I´ve seen a lot of doctors and specialists at VM. Dr. Pineda-Lui is my favorite. She listens, understands, she´s knowledgeable and caring.
I like Dr Pineda Liu very much and I have recommended her
Definitely I would recommend this clinic and doctor.
Dr. Pineda-Liu makes me feel that I have more control over my health and gives me advice that allows me to implement that control. She also tells me how and when to take tests that will ensure I am on the right track. I like this approach.
Dr Pineda Liu is so nice. I feel very comfortable with her.
both dr and nurse very good
The care provider was very professional and knowledgeable
I have gone to see numerous doctors over my 65 years and Dr. Pineda Liu ranks as one of the very best I´ve ever been fortunate to know...
Dr. Christine Pineda Liu provided outstanding medical care and emotional support to me and my mother. She is a wonderful human being with a lot of knowledge, experience, friendliness beyond of my expectation. Thank you for having such valuable provider in your team.
first time I had met this doctor ... was impressed with her. When I need an appt. in Bellevue (where I work) I will request an appt. with her.
Caring and listening. Described scenario well. Gave her point of view (e.g. "What she should do or worry about if she were me"). I felt she took the time and understands my situation. She´s now my primary care physician.
This was my first visit with Dr. Pineda-Liu. She was extremely personable and very thorough. She had several suggestions/recommendations for applicable preventive health tests and treatment and engaged me in the decisions. Her recommendations were very reasonable.
dr. Pineda who filled in for dr. Tuttle my PCP was fantastic; empathetic, thorough and efficient.
love the care Dr pineda lui give to me every time I see her ,very dedicated to providing quality of care .
Dr. Pineda-Liu is wonderful. I have a medical condition that few Doctors are familiar with. She has taken the time to understand it and be very helpful to me. She is always friendly, very caring, informative and has a vested interest in my health. She conducts herself in a very professional manner.
Dr. P. was great! First time with her. She expressed great concern, knowledge, and _____ a plan for care.
My initial appointment with my new Primary Care Physician went very well, and Dr. Pineda-Liu´s followup has been very good and timely.
This is my first time meeting Dr. Pineda-Liu and I feel very at easy with her. She seems to be a very caring doctor.
I appreciate that Dr. Pineda Liu listens to my input concerning my health. She encourage patient participation in being more proactive with our own health management . I like that she shares my position in not over-medicating a patient. She is great! I like her a lot.
I am really impressed with my physician ... she is always willing to talk with me about my concerns and is upfront and honest about some issues that I would rather forget about ... I do respect this though and in the end realize that she is doing what she feels is right for me. And .. as much as I hate to admit it ... 99% of the time she is "spot on".
First experience with this provider and it was excellent. I would definitely request her again and recommend to family & friends.
She´s very caring and got me test results to me extremely fast.
I love Dr. Pineda-Liu! Very friendly and personable, and knowledgeable as well. She makes me feel at ease, and I´m happy to trust her with my health.
I am very comfortable and at ease with Dr. Pineda-Liu and will continue to see her
Dr. Pineda-Lui was fantastic. This was my first visit as I was trying to find a new doctor and location from my previous doctor. I was very impressed with her care and will continue to see Dr. Pineda-Lui. I have already recommend her to another friend as well.
Follow-up care instructions were given verbally, one item that was brought up was forgotten however by both the provider and myself.
She´s the best.
Dr. Pineda-Liu is the best and most caring provider I´ve ever had.
Although I really liked my regular doctor, I absolutely want to switch over to seeing Christine now; she´s awesome and so nice!
I absolutely loved my experience with this doctor. She gave no impression that she wanted to get me in and out, and was incredibly sensitive and respectful of my decisions and concerns, which is what I was looking for in seeking a new doctor. I thought she was exceptional!
I explained my feelings a few pages back! Very, very pleased with my provider!
Didn´t feel I really knew what the visit result was - what was decided.
Dr. Peneda is most wonderful and the kindest Dr. that I have ever had.
Dr. Pineda-Liu was kind, efficient, informative and not weird about it. She has a great people skills.
I am deeply grateful for Dr. Pineda-Liu. She is the best doctor I have ever had, and I have seen many doctors over the years.
I was looking for a new primary care provide and I am so happy I went to Dr. Pineda-Liu! She is really friendly and thorough, and took tons of time to get to know my medical history. I am really happy a family member referred me to her.
The doctor spent almost and hour with me during my visit
I addressed multiple issues in my appointment with Dr. Pineda-Liu and I know our time ran long, I knew I must be making her late for her next appointment but she never made me feel that way. She took the time to thoroughly examine me, address all my concerns and make sure I understood everything. I have been a patient of Virginia Mason for more than 20 years and I have seen many physicians in that time and most of the time I feel rushed through everything in my appointment, but not with Dr. Pineda-Liu. She takes the time to make me comfortable and I put a lot of value in that. I wish Virginia Mason would give their providers more time to meet with their patients so all providers could be as good as Dr. Pineda-Liu is.
