Dr. Chia-How Liu – Family Medicine – Profile


My name is Chia-How Liu, also known as Howie. I am in family medicine and I work at the Abrazo Medical Group, Goodyear. Family medicine means I basically can see any patient from zero to, you know, over a
hundred for basically any condition whatsoever. So, in general I actually went into medicine when I was younger, so around
fourteen my dad was diagnosed with colon cancer, so when I was there, he actually got amazing care and he went through the treatment process,
chemotherapy and he’s still alive today so because of that, you know, that was
kind of the reason why I went to. You know, I knew at that point that I wanted
to try to prevent major things like this from happening, so cancers, heart disease,
diabetes, you know, when they tend happen, they cause a lot of problems with
families and, you know, they can really tear families apart, so, you know, my goal
is to try to prevent those things from happening. I think my main goal when
I’m with the patient is to really try to be as honest as possible, you know, I
think one of the most important things is to really have a strong
patient-physician relationship, you know, it’s important that the patient is
really a big part of that, in addition to myself, I can offer my knowledge, my
experience, really need the patient to have their own motivation and really
believe in, you know, what we’re doing to really accomplish anything.
