I loved that..

I LOVE Dr Pineda-Liu! She is thoughtful and deliberative, she is excellent and explaining the issue and the options available. She listens to me and doesn't talk down to me, she knows I have generally done my research, but is also thorough in explaining new concepts. I also never feel judged by her, so I am able to be 100% honest with her about my behaviors and follow though. She is truly the BEST and you should find a way to clone her!

Very pleasant. Seemed a little hurried this time. Perhaps the previous patient set her back as I did wait a while in the room once roomed. But pleasant & knowledgeable as usual.
