"Dr. Liao is caring, knowledgeable, prompt, and super efficient. Her office is a pleasure to deal with (not something I can usually say about medical offices in NYC) and that is a reflection on her. No matter what kind of problem you have with insurance, her office will straighten it out. I had a problem with my insurance covering a certain bone medication; she advocated for me and I got coverage. I would recommend her to everyone I know."

"AVOID Dr. Liao and seek a different doctor instead!!! I recently saw Dr. Liao to have her look at my thyroid ultrasound and she immediately diagnosed me with an autoimmune disease after reading my ultrasound results and told me there is absolutely nothing I can do about it and in fact, it will possibly get worse if I ever choose to get pregnant!!!! And that I will possibly have to be on thyroid medication down the line. I'm 23 and left her office scared and with no hope, treatment, or advice from a medical professional about what to do or what lifestyle/dietary changes I could possibly make. Thankfully I trusted my gut and went for a second opinion elsewhere and found out that you can absolutely NOT diagnose someone with Hashimoto without doing an antibody blood test. The antibody test is what determines if you have it or not. How could she diagnose someone with something without doing the required blood work?!!!! After seeking a second opinion and doing the required bloodwork, my antibody ...
blood test came back NEGATIVE. I do not have an autoimmune disease. If I listened to Dr. Liao's med pushing mindset and over-diagnosing, I would be sitting here today believing I have an autoimmune disease I don't have!!! Go see a different doctor instead who you can trust. "

"My daughter was wrongly diagnosed by Dr. Liao with an Autoimmune disease for which she never ran any necessary bloodwork! She sat there and told a 23 year old she had Hashimoto Thyroiditis based on one indicator on an ultrasound. She told my daughter it will likely get worse as she ages or if she ever got pregnant, and again, never ran bloodwork! No antibody test, nothing. She clearly had no clue as to the importance of iodine or any other vitamins or minerals. Dismissive of environmental, lifestyle or dietary changes for healing. Here we have just another medication pushing Doctor with zero nutritional education or knowledge. We did the right thing and went for a 2nd opinion, got the required antibody test and comprehensive bloodwork and my daughter tested negative for Hashimoto and all her bloodwork is just fine. Dr. Liao also likes expensive procedures and lots of medication, shots and infusions. We had a terrible experience and did not trust her at all. "
