It has become relatively easy for patients to basically shop their healthcare on their own. But with this level of access, there are important components to keep into consideration.

It was an immense pleasure to see you all at Dr. Liu’s meet and greet this past weekend. We were happy with the turnout and she was very appreciative of the energy and all the questions that were asked. Patients are becoming more involved in and aware of their healthcare decision; therefore, they deserve to be well informed on where they are receiving care, and whom they are receiving it from. If you are an existing patient of Personal Physician Care or Personal Physician Care, we want to thank you for your loyalty and we look forward to continue serving your healthcare needs. If you are a new patient or are considering joining our family, we are as excited as you are and we cannot wait to build a lasting, fruitful relationship.
Again, thank you all for coming and thank you for being part of our family.

I have enjoyed caring for you and your families over the last few years. With a lot of joy, and some sadness, I am writing to let you know that unfortunately, I am leaving Personal Physician Care (”PPC”), effective March 15, 2018. This decision is solely based on personal reasons in order to work closer to home south of Fort Lauderdale. As you all know, this practice is staffed with some of the most knowledgeable and caring providers in the country. In addition to the outstanding current providers, the practice has also hired a new physician. Audrey Liu, M.D. is a Board Certified Internal Medicine Physician with over 11 years of practice. With a B.A. in Molecular Biology from Princeton University, Dr. Liu received her M.D. degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 2003. In addition to her impressive Ivy League education, Dr. Liu completed her residency in 2006 at Yale-New Haven Hospital, one of the most respected programs in the nation.
Dr. Liu officially started with PPC on March 5th, 2018 and is currently accepting new patients.
