Reviews for Dr. Liu
“We have nothing but praise for this practice. Dr. Liu is our go-to specialist for retinal care. The support staff are pleasant, efficient, and helpful.”— Paula
“My best evidence for Colorado Retina quality care is that I have been driving to appointments for the past 9 years from Montrose, Colorado, which entails a 10 hour plus drive round-trip. I would not make that trip if the expertise, professionalism and compassionate care were not superb at Colorado Retina Associates. This practice invests in the latest technology and uses current best practices along with good old common sense, to ensure the most proactive, accurate diagnoses and best treatment options. It is obvious the entire staff makes patients the priority. Thank you Dr. Liu and staff. You are all so worth the drive!”— Susan
“Love Colorado Retina Associates. Dr. Mimi Liu (for wife and I) is the best. I say this because she has that rare but highly desired and elusive combination of skill, experience, education, attitude, "bedside manner," positivity, friendliness, and more. Every single interaction has been exceptional. Not good. Not great. Exceptional.”— Ed
