Dr. Pineda-Liu is very thorough & caring & answers all my questions. I don´t feel rushed. I wish I could continue with Dr. Pineda-Liu but I might have to switch doctors because I have to go with Molina Health Insurance and Virginia Mason doesn´t have a contract with them.

One of my best days at VM was the day one of the MAs recommended Dr Piedra Liu. I hadn´t been seen by a PCP in almost ten years (my last PCP had passed away and I just never followed up to find a new one) and my Beh Health Dr asked one of the MAs for a recommendation. She suggested Dr Pineda Liu and I have been very pleased with her management of my care. She is sharp. doesn´t judge and is willing to work out steps for me to take to improve my health.

Dr. P-L, in spite of running quite late in her schedule, gave me her full attention and as always, was very thorough. Even though she was quite behind, I didn´t feel that she rushed through my appointment. She is an excellent care giver!!
August 2017
I will continue to drive 60 miles one-way to see Dr. Pineda-Liu. She always gives me the required attention and time needed to address my health concerns. She takes my health very serious and has always showed me the utmost respect and care. I was her patient at the Lynnwood Clinic.

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. :)
May 2017
