About Me

As a cardiologist, I believe that while it is important to have a standardized approach to treatment for many problems, it is also important to keep an open mind in order to individualize care plans for each patient’s unique situation. I like taking time to get to know my patients and engaging with them during this process. I specialize in adult general cardiology and am passionate about heart disease prevention and the improvements being made in the field of cardiovascular health as it remains an area of critical importance for all.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of our community. It's a pleasure to work with such a brilliant group of health care providers and staff who are dedicated to providing the best patient-centered care available.

In my free time I enjoy traveling, watching Ohio State football games and spending time with my family.

    This was my first visit with Dr. Liu. He was recommended by my family doctor when I discussed some meds - pain on my left side. My family doctor did an EKG and saw something and set up the appointment with Dr. Liu. Both my wife and I were impressed with Dr. Liu and after my stress test Dr. Liu contacted me personally for a follow up at OSU within a few hours of the test.
