What Liana G. Chotikul’s Patients Have to Say…

  • Dear Ms Chotikul: Just thinking about your kindness brings a smile. Thank you so much. You have a wonderful bedside manner and I appreciate how quickly you responded to my needs.

    — Sharon I.


  • Dear Liana: A much belated thanks to you for the constant, attentive care you have given me over these past many years. The last procedure (Pain Management) through your referral proved to be the one that took away the pain in my arm after several years… During all that time you never gave up on me and for that I am extremely grateful… It was because of you I had my thyroid checked. You probably saved my life…. You are the example of what the perfect nurse and care giver should be and I am so thankful that I have been one of your patients.
