The Bio of Davis Liu, M.D.

Davis Liu, MDHi!

Thanks for coming to my blog!

I’m currently the Chief Clinical Officer and Head of Service Development at the start-up Lemonaid Health. We are intensely focused on make care super convenient, quick and easy, and inexpensive by providing care via app or website. We currently provide treatment for simple uncomplicated primary care issues like acne, bladder infection, birth control medicine, heartburn, hair loss, and sinusitis among others. We look forward to making more services available as we expand to more states.

Previously I spent 15 years as a practicing board-certified family physician with the Permanente Medical Group (TPMG) in Northern California. I have held leadership positions including serving on the TPMG Board of Directors for nine years.

I never planned on writing or becoming a blogger. However a couple times early in my career, family medical issues arose that made me thankful that I became a doctor. Getting medical care can be very confusing unless you know how to get care.

Since then, I’ve been passionate about making health care better for both patients and doctors.

I’m on a mission to help patients make smarter choices and helping doctors be better leaders. This blog is part of that mission. Some posts are suggestions for patients. Other posts are my opinions on where health care is going and how doctors should be part of the change. I tweet information for both groups @DavisLiuMD. Helpful patient tips and news is found at my Facebook page.

I’ve written a couple of books focused to help patients get better care:   The Thrifty Patient – Vital Insider Tips to Save Money (2012) and Stay Healthy as well as Stay Healthy, Live Longer, Spend Wisely – Making Intelligent Choices in America’s Healthcare System (2008).


I very much look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes for good health,


Davis Liu, MD
