A Personal Note from Dr. Liang
Though my hometown is Morgantown, West Virginia, I consider myself a Texan, having lived and traveled in Texas and desiring one day to practice medicine in Texas. I completed medical school at UTMB, and I am so thankful to be able to continue as a resident. Family Medicine allows me to practice comprehensive, whole-person care for all ages. I value establishing the physician-patient relationship, caring for persons through their lifetime, and solving the everyday health problems of the people in my community. I strive to combine prevention and healthy living, value care including convenient office procedures, and management of both acute and chronic conditions with the current advancement of medical knowledge. I understand that health touches the entire person, within the context of their unique situations. Therefore, I am committed to partner with patients to achieve their health goals as well as provide a healing presence for their health challenges.
