Dr. Reutter has great bedside manner, deep knowledge of the field and very efficient execution. His staff team are also super helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.
If you’re reading reviews, like I was just four months ago, looking for confirmation that Dr. Liu is the doctor you should go with – look no further. Her existing reviews speak for themselves, but let me further assure you as a patient who was desperate for relief, frustrated by the healthcare system and eager for a kind doctor who would believe and partner with me. I went in for surgery without knowing if I had endometriosis – imaging failed to show anything and doctors dismissed me for 17 years – and Dr. Liu removed all of my Stage 4 endometriosis.
Two key call-outs:
-Time: Dr. Liu got me into her office within a week for initial consult. From there, I had only one additional imaging needed before surgery – which I booked for the next week because of my own schedule. Once I adamantly agreed to surgery, given the severity of my symptoms, Dr. Liu wanted to get me into surgery ASAP, like a week or two out. Due to needing some specialty surgeons on standby, my surgery was booked for as soon as all were available which was 6 weeks from my initial consult. Dr. Liu’s appreciation for how debilitating my symptoms were and her/her staff’s associated sense of urgency was honestly inspiring. I never felt rushed, I never felt pressured. But when Dr. Liu knew I was all-in, she made it happen and kept me informed at every turn. I truly felt like I had a dedicated partner in finally getting some answers, and hopefully, some relief.
-Demeanor: I don’t always need the doctor with the most amazing bedside manner as long as I feel they’re taking care of my medical needs. However, with this many unknowns and dead-ends after years of incredible pain, I knew I needed a doctor who I trusted wholeheartedly to treat me, and I also needed a doctor who I felt comfortable, safe and supported by. After so many years of being dismissed by so many doctors, my pain began to feel like it was all in my head. Dr. Liu listened and she believed me – full stop. She gave me the space to make the decisions I was comfortable with while providing me with guidance and education. Dr. Liu was accessible, patient, thorough and truly kind. I emailed her with some of the smallest, silliest questions in my weeks recovering. She answered every single one promptly and without judgment.
I feel like I have been given a second life, and I’m so grateful for the team that brought me to it. Dr. Liu partnered with Dr. Larish (also the absolute best out there) as well as my own existing PCP to personalize my care and ensure my smooth recovery. The work that Dr. Liu does is truly top-tier and changes lives forever, but it’s really HOW she goes about it that distinguishes her and her team.
By the time I met Dr. Liu, I was in so much discomfort and pain that it was all I could do to get through my day. Having had endometriosis surgery about 10 years ago, I suspected that maybe it had returned and that’s what was causing all of my pain. I could not find someone to help me, and then my husband found Dr. Liu’s website. The best thing I ever did was call Dr. Liu’s office that day. During my first appointment with her, she listened to my history with endometriosis and my current awful pain and discomfort. She then agreed to do surgery, focusing on the fact that the endometriosis had either come back or not been fully cleared out the first time around. She was very kind, and sympathetic, and after meeting with her that day, I felt confident deciding to let her do surgery. I met with her the morning of the surgery in the hospital, and I once again felt that she was going to do everything she could to rectify the problems that I had. I am happy to say that 2 months after my surgery it is like night and day for me now. I have no pain, or discomfort. She did find many lesions of endometriosis and she got rid of all of them! After 2 years of suffering with this pain, I am fine and I no longer have any pain or discomfort since the surgery was completed. Dr. Liu has also stayed in touch with me since the surgery to make sure that I am doing well. I am very grateful to her for all that she has done to help me.
Dr. Liu is truly the best doctor I have ever had. From the moment I met her I knew I was in good hands. I have been dismissed by so many doctors and was starting to lose hope with my declining health. I traveled 4 hours to see Dr. Liu after finding her on Nancy’s Nook. I had a lot of anxiety for my appointment but felt comfortable and calm the second Dr. Liu came in the room. You can tell she really cares about and listens to her patients. She never rushes you and always asks if you have any questions. I had excision surgery with Dr. Liu in May. Not only is she an incredibly skilled surgeon but she has outstanding bedside manner. It’s the little things she does that make such a difference. From always including my husband in conversation/plan of care, allowing ample opportunity to ask questions, and holding my hand in the OR until I was asleep. When my surgery took longer than anticipated she kept my husband updated throughout my surgery. I needed to stay in the hospital for almost a week and Dr. Liu visited me every morning or if she was in NYC that day she would make the time to call me. She has followed up multiple times since my surgery to check on my recovery. I am so grateful for Dr. Liu and the exceptional care she has provided me. She goes so above and beyond for her patients. Because of her, I now have my quality of life back. I am forever grateful for her. Thank you Dr. Liu!
Dr Lora Liu is simply the best! She was kind and thorough throughout the whole experience. She made me feel very comfortable about asking questions and she was very knowledgeable. She checked in on me regularly post surgery and made me feel like there was support if I needed it. She did a fantastic job. After 6 weeks my scars are healing really well, my endometriosis pain is considerably less and I am able to exercise and do all normal activities. I am so grateful for the day I decided to call Dr. Liu. This surgery was life changing and I am so glad I chose Dr Liu as my surgeon.
This doctor saves my life after 10 years of suffering with pain. I cannot express how thankful I am for her services and professionalism.
I highly recommend DR. Lui for whoever suffers from endom
This lady saved my life after seeing so many other doctors previously with no result. She took the time to explain everything her research the process and was great even after my surgical procedure. I have never meet a more attentive doctor, she followed up with me every single after my surgery to make sure I was doing good. I’m just happy to be pains free after 10 years of no results with other doctors.
Wonderful follow up that keeps me hopeful for a full recovery.
professional all the way
Before coming to Dr. Ahmed, I had hit a plateau with PT. With Dr. Ahmed’s help, diagnosis, and encouraging me to switch PTs, my condition has drastically improved. Without the injections, her encouragement and calm bedside manner, I would most likely still be suffering in silence.
I have been able to improve my symptoms significantly thanks to all of Dr. Ahmed recommendations
Dr. Liu is incredible! She’s a great surgeon who is also kind and attentive with her patients. She eased all of my specific surgical anxieties before going under and was super attentive post-op.
Thank you!!! Dr.Liu helped me when no one else would. I had almost lost hope that anyone would understand what I was going through. After one visit, she saw all the red flags I was worried about and was ready to take action. She helped me come up with a plan that worked for me, and really helped take away my fears. She armed me with knowledge and helped empower me to put myself first. I came from out of state because she was such a highly recommended specialist, and I am so glad I did. If you have any reservations, just make one appointment with her, and you won’t be disappointed.
I had a very positive experience with Dr. Ahmed.
Dr. Reutter diagnosed me with pelvic floor hypertonia, which explained all of the symptoms that I was having. I started with PT and had some improvement, but Dr. R. found that there was still hypertonia, and recommended the injections. Zero pressure, just a recommendation. I went through with them, and my symptoms have gone from consistent and insufferable to rare on mild. Dr. Reutter’s guidance and treatment have improved my life overall. With my physical symptoms improved significantly, I’ve noticed a great improvement in my mental health as well! I’m grateful that I had the courage to walk into an office that most dudes probably wouldn’t… and I sincerely thank Dr. Reutter and his staff!!!
Before seeing Dr. Reutter I was at the end of my rope and feeling quite hopeless. After my first appointment with him, I was already feeling more at ease- I had seen so many doctors who didn’t understand what I was going through. Dr. Reutter was patient and understanding and most of all aware of what was happening with me. He instilled confidence in me that I could be healed. Writing this near the end of my treatment, I can truly say that he is a lifesaver!
I have been to multiple doctors in the past 2 years with no results after my first consultation I was given the proper care and was able to regain my mobility back

She helped me to review the facts and I felt more informed about my condition. I walked out of her office with more options for solutions.
I have suffered from horrible and debilitating period pains for years on end, and like most women, every doctor I went to was extremely dismissive and did not take my concerns seriously. I have been to dozens of medical professionals over the course of the past 5 or so years and Dr. Lora Liu was the only one who is not only extremely empathetic, but was willing to help me in surgically diagnosing and removing my endometriosis. I also had two extremely large ovarian cysts that were causing me to be hospitalized every month. Dr Liu and her team were so kind to me and effectively communicated everything I needed to know prior to the surgery. It has been almost two months and my quality of life has increased dramatically. I never thought that I would get to live without being sick constantly, but thanks to Dr. Liu I am able to live anxiety free now. If you are a woman who suffers with similar issues, do not hesitate to call Dr. Liu for a consultation! I traveled from four states just to see her!
Dr Reutter was incredible from start to finish of helping me get back to normal.
Dr. Lora Liu was the answer to a prayer. Four years of immeasurable suffering took over my life before I found her. Before I found her no fewer than four doctors had concurred with a diagnosis of IBS. After feeling at the end of my rope, I began to suspect a gynelogical issue. Although I initially found a surgeon who recommended diagnostic laparoscopy, I became uncomfortable with my choice. Finding Dr. Liu made my choice clear. She not only listens first, she listens hard. Her empathy comes from seeing how she can help, and it is clear that this is what is driving the work and the work of her incredible team.
She lays out her knowledge in a way that neither overwhelms nor under-prepares her patient – she has a balance to her process that instills justifiable confidence.
Prior to my surgery, I knew exactly what to expect and I did so with a sense of calm in a time that had been chaotic and frightening. I came to Dr. Liu a broken patient who had faced years of gaslighting and having spent thousands of dollars on treatments (both covered and not covered). I was physically, mentally, emotionally exhausted. I had lost my trust in medicine and it’s ability to heal. All that changed with Dr. Liu. In the field of specialized gynecology, Dr. Liu distinguishes herself with a commitment to her patients and their success that is beyond rare. I am almost 3 months post-surgery and I have my life back. Finally! The debilitating symptoms I had have dramatically improved and the removal of fibroids that other doctors inaccurately described as “nothing to worry about” have been a game-changer. Dr. Liu hits a level of superior care that is hard to find in today’s assembly line style of medicine. She is always accessible, never judges but instead gently educated and she is the biggest reason why I know I’m smiling again today.
Dr. Liu has helped me so much in the short time that I have met her. My original surgery was for cyst removal and was supposed to be 1-2 hrs but ended up being a little over 5 hrs because my insides were a mess. Dr. Liu got rid of my cyst, scar tissue and endometriosis which I never knew I had after years of doctors putting of my symptoms. She checked up on me frequently and was so very compassionate and caring. Surgery in itself is very hard but because I had a previous surgery 2 months prior done by another surgeon, my recovery has been a bit slow but Dr.Liu always reminds me to be patient with my body and I appreciate that reminder so much. I am beyond grateful for Dr. Liu.
Brilliant! Approachable! Thoughtful! Considerate! Kind! Precise! Happy! Smart! There are so many words to describe Dr. Liu. I was referred to her to help surgically treat my fibroids. From the moment Dr. Liu entered the treatment room I felt immediate calm and peace. She is a great listener while also being so down to earth. You are not just a patient to scratch off her schedule for the day she is invested, dialed in and focused when working with you.
Dr. Liu was very thorough as she described my surgical options, next steps and what to anticipate. This ensured that I was very confident and clear in regards to what to expect. Even when things needed to change in regards to my procedure she explained why in detail and empowered me to make the decision.
My surgery went very smoothly and my recovery was well within expectations. This is because of the amazing job she and her team did on my procedure. I shared a photo of me smiling while in the hospital for a reason. I was able to smile, find joy despite what I went through because of the amazing care her team ensured I had. The surgery was done with utmost precision and I was treated very much as a person not just a patient every step of the way. What really blew me away was that when I was in recovery Dr. Liu checked in on me daily either calling or emailing. She didn’t just forget about me she stayed connected, ensured that even virtually I felt her bedside manner and she answered all the crazy patient questions quickly and complimented by lighthearted photos I sent to share my progress.
I have friends who were treated by other doctors and when I share my experience with Dr. Liu they share their disappointment and all say I wish I had her because she truly gives one of kind patient care. I want to also share that the team that supports her at pelvic rehabilitation medicine are so professional and match Dr. Liu’s approach to her patients. They are thoughtful, patient, through and respond to any need or inquiry in a timely fashion. In NYC there are so many options for doctors, surgeons and OB GYNs but not everyone offers you the very best care and not just because it’s expected but because they refuse to give anything less because that’s who they are as a person and that is absolutely Dr. Lora Liu.
I am finally fibroid free after years of suffering. I am finally truly living life. I am pain free. I am a better me. I am immensely grateful to her and her team. I hope you consider her for your care and I’m confident that if you do one day you too will be here writing a raving review.
Dr. Liu met with me after I had several sessions and went through a few protocols with Dr. Vyas. We discussed the possibility of endometriosis. She was with me every step of the way between getting imaging done, pre-op questions and post-op care. She removed my endo and I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor. She really helped me give my life back!!
I had surgery with Dr. Liu in January of 2022 and she was an incredible provider. She is an expert in endometriosis care. Undergoing excision surgery with Dr. Liu changed my life and granted me the freedom to go about my day-to-day. Dr. Liu checked in with me multiple times prior to and following surgery, and was the most attentive medical provider I have ever had. If you are looking for endometriosis care I highly recommend Dr. Liu.
My experience being treated by Dr. Liu has been validating, positive, and hopeful.
After years of being dismissed by previous general gyns regarding my pain, I sought out Dr. Liu for a consultation. I was relieved to find out that her office does not require a referral, which is important when trying to advocate for yourself. I was able to get a consultation quickly and Dr. Liu spent a considerable amount of time listening to my past medical history, answering questions, and responding to my concerns. She was the first provider to ever say to me “I believe you.” She is extremely knowledgeable about endometriosis and these are the cases she handles everyday.
Although I had no previous scans or diagnoses, we decided to move forward with surgery. Her surgical coordinator Janisie was wonderful to work with and got my surgery scheduled for a few weeks out. I had my procedure at Hoboken University Medical Center where the staff provided great care and made the process easier while I was extremely anxious. My surgery was performed with Dr. Liu and Urologist Dr. Larish who was also very considerate and assured me we would go the route I was most comfortable with.
Surgery went smoothly and I was diagnosed with stage 1 endometriosis after 12 years, and it was excised (gold standard). Recovery was exactly what Dr. Liu prepared me for. She called me for 3 days after and even checked on me after a week. I also received the operative & pathology reports within a week. I have never experienced this level of care and compassion and it made the process easier for me. She is very responsive and replied to all my email questions post-op. I’m so grateful for Dr. Liu and can’t recommend her enough. She is very skilled and thorough. If you want a true expert, who will believe you, and deliver the best care, contact Dr. Liu!
Had a very positive surgery experience (laparoscopic robotic excision of endometriosis) and vast improvement in my pain and functioning since my surgery on 1/4/21. My daily pain is gone and my quality of life has made huge improvements. Dr. Liu removed 24 lesions and removed my bowel from my pelvic wall in 3 places, from my bladder, and in other areas of my pelvis. I know other people have had similar amounts and dense adhesions and their surgeons could not remove them all or burned them versus excised them. I also have hEDS which is a collagen disorder that puts you at greater risk of bleeding and scarring after surgery and Dr. Liu was familiar with the condition (actually, the reason I was diagnosed was my pelvic physiatrist at PRM said she suspected I had it) and I have not had any complications or scar tissue pain.
I have since moved to Alabama and miss the team at PRM because I feel like I really benefitted from the pelvic physiatry and cognitive therapy I received from others on the team. If I need surgery again (which hopefully will be in at least 5 years), I would greatly consider flying back up to have her perform the surgery again. It’s really hard to trust someone when there are so many unknowns and misinformation about endometriosis.
before I see Dr Reutter, I had the feeling that I would never get back to normal but after about 3 months form visiting him I can say confidently my it is treatable as my case has been hugely improved and 80% of symptoms have totally gone. the method of treatment, injections, madecine and straitches he prescribed and recommended have been so helpful in bringing me back to normal.
Dr. Liu was a wonderful surgeon who made sure I knew exactly what to do throughout the entire process. She had comprehensive directions for how to prepare for the surgery as well as what to do after. I also appreciated that she called in to check on me after the surgery and was very supportive throughout the whole process.
My experience having surgery with Dr. Liu was wonderful from start to finish. Dr. Liu is a caring and expert practitioner. I never felt rushed and she listened carefully and empathetically to me and answered all my questions fully. Even after an intake and a preop appointment, she met with me in the hospital right before the surgery to review the plan and patiently answer any final questions.
I had the same surgery with another surgeon last year and the experience was like night and day. Dr. Liu took her time and was extremely thorough with a relatively complex endometriosis excision surgery. Her expertise and skill are unrivaled, and I feel like she’s given me my life back after many tough years battling this disease.
After the surgery she called my husband and gave him a full report while I was in recovery, and then called me every day after to see how I was doing, adjust my postop plan as needed, and answer questions I had about what she did. She even responded to emails quickly any day of the week. This is not one of those surgeons that’s going to move on the minute you wake up from anesthesia. Dr. Liu is 100% on your team, every step of the way.
The office was also great. Very transparent with billing, and they handle everything with insurance. Scheduling was easy and convenient. Preop and postop instructions were clear and communicated well.
Dr. Liu is one of the most respectful, knowledgeable and kindest doctors I’ve ever met. From the very beginning, she was very patient with me. She also listened carefully to all my concerns before giving me her honest opinion about my condition and explaining what my options were.
I was a bit scared about having to schedule and prepare for surgery, but it was the easiest part of this journey thanks to her surgery coordinator Janisie. She was always pleasant, patient and willing to help. The staff at Jersey Medical Center was also amazing. This was my first time being admitted to a hospital and they all made me feel at ease. The urologist, Dr. Larish, made me laugh as soon as he introduced himself and I knew right away that I was in good hands.
Prior to this surgery, I had been living with crippling pain for 20 years and had seen many doctors, who made me believe I just had a low pain threshold, but when Dr. Liu told me how bad my endo had been, I realized just how important it is to find a skillful specialist and surgeon. Dr. Liu will even go out of her way to call you everyday after your surgery to check how you’re doing and will answer really quickly if you have any questions or complications.
I truly cannot recommend Dr. Liu enough. I owe so much to her and I will never be able to repay her and her team for everything they’ve done for me.
Update: It’s been almost 2 months since my surgery and my scars have healed nicely, my symptoms have all gone away and I feel like I was reborn. Even my primary doctor has had nothing but praise for Dr. Liu and her team after seeing how well I am doing. Something you don’t realize when you’ve lived most of your life dealing with endometriosis is that you normalize your pain because it is all you’ve ever known, but now I can genuinely tell I am healthy and completely pain free.
If you’re looking for a doctor who truly cares about her patients and can offer you the best treatment for your gynecological condition, especially endometriosis, then please go see Dr. Liu.
Dr. Lora Liu was able to help me with removing Endometriosis, she did an excellent job and I was treated with compassion and understanding every step of the way. I felt that she really went out of the way of a typical doctor with her care, she checked on me via email or phone every day after surgery and made sure I had everything that I needed to ensure a successful procedure and recovery.
Staff was amazing and welcoming. Dr. Ahmed was so comforting, and knowledgable. She gave me insight on all my questions and concerns. Would absoutley recommend.
Great care. Highly recommend.
Very in-depth history and discussion of treatment options. Much more time spent with doctor than I have experienced elsewhere.
Extremely knowledgeable and resourceful, by far the best doctor I’ve gone to.
Dr. Ahmed was extremely attentive, knowledgeable and caring. Throughout the past 10 years I have visited numerous doctors and done multiple treatment plans to eliminate my pain but nothing worked. Dr. Ahmed listened and fully understood what I was going through. I genuinely felt lifted from our conversations and treatments because after so long I had convinced myself that I would always be in pain and that there was no solution. She’s an amazing doctor who truly cares about her patients !
Dr. Ahmed was very kind and easy to talk to. She has helped ease my anxiety over this situation and I am looking forward to my next visit with her, hopefully with some progress made.
Dr Ahmed is second to none. She is professional, altruistic, and so very caring. There isn’t anything she would not do to help you feel better. She also has a great sense of humor. dr. ahmed really care about helping others with this condition. eleanor and julia are amazing young ladies that are there to help,every second of every day. this was my last step to a better future.
she is cautious with prescriptions, which i appreciate because i do not want to take heavy medications. she has connected me to great providers and was very quick to act.
Dr. Reutter is an extremely knowledgeable and thoughtful physician. He listens patiently and closely to all of your concerns and addresses each one. Dr. Reutter is also extremely friendly and empathetic. Many doctors simply treat pain and do not address the human side of medicine. Dr. Reutter is not like this at all. He is willing to sit with his patients and acknowledge their pain, not simply as symptoms of a particular illness, but rather as human beings who he can relate to. Dr. Reutter’s attitude and philosophy of treating patients is the model of what all physicians should be. In addition, I would like to mention the quality of care that Dr. Reutter provides. Dr. Reutter is extremely accurate in his diagnosis and plan of treatment for patients. He is a seasoned physician who is highly trustworthy in his assessments and treatment plans.
Dr, Liu never rushes her patients, she always answered my questions no matter what they were. She was patient and kind. she made me feel understood and validated. She really put my mind to ease before and after having my surgery
Dr Liu is amazing! My surgery was a breeze, barely any pain and walking and active to fight the gas. Her bedside manner is top notch, dont hesitate to book with Dr Liu! I choose Dr Liu from her other peers because I didnt want a man . I wanted a woman who actual experiences periods to help me and better understand me. Jersey City Medical team was also AMAZING! Being my first surgery I was very scared but they made my experience so lovely.
Excellent, feel well-attended to and feel that he accurately diagnosed what was wrong and helped to fix it.

Had pelvic pain worsening for months, and Dr. Reutter was able to correctly diagnose what was going on and developed a complete plan with alternatives if needed to help me regain my function and eliminate my pain. He was very knowledgeable and able to explain exactly what was going on which in turn help me be more compliant and in tune to the treatments.
Great care and helpful with pain management.
Dr. Liu has been an absolute life saver! I had been suffering from a wide array of painful symptoms over the years and with multiple trips to the ER, I had felt extremely dismissed by doctors and the medical community, until I met Dr. Liu. Even though I did not display some of the “classic” symptoms of endometriosis, Dr. Liu was 95% positive that I had endo. I knew very little about endometriosis and was skeptical that they would find anything significant during my laparoscopic surgery. I was accustomed to having doctors not being able to diagnose me for my perplexing symptoms, so why would this time be any different? I was floored to learn of Dr. Liu’s findings after she completed my surgery: I had stage IV endometriosis, the most advanced and aggressive stage of the disease. She found it everywhere in my pelvic cavity: on my uterus, ovaries, colon, rectum, cervix, etc. It had even invaded my urinary system and was found on my bladder and ureters. She also discovered that I had acute appendicitis from endometriosis, as well. No wonder I was living in SO much pain. It is still beyond me how no other doctor in my years of searching for answers, did not suggest or discover any of this. I am extremely lucky to have found Dr. Liu when I did because my appendix could have burst or I could have potentially lost an ovary or worse, even a kidney. For the first time in my life, I finally have proof of my symptoms. I feel validated and heard. Even though having a diagnosis such as endometriosis can be overwhelming, I feel more empowered than ever. Dr Liu helped give my life back. I continue to receive support from her and her assocates on my road to recovery. She is an extremely skilled surgeon and doctor – I would trust no one else to do this procedure. Thank you so much to Dr Liu!
PS. I should also mention, the Jersey City Medical Center was one of the best experiences I have ever had during a surgery. The staff was incredible! From the check-in process to being discharged, they made me feel safe and comfortable.
Dr. R. has a great bedside manner and get to the root of issues.
answered all question in person and on the portal
I have had severe, chronic urinary frequency for several years, and had seen urologists from Cleveland Clinic, Hackensack, and Columbia, without any significant symptom improvement or clear diagnosis. Dr. Reutter truly listened to me, gave me a clear diagnosis, and allowed me to maintain some sense of dignity as a patient. I am fortunate to have found Dr. Reutter and am grateful for the care that I received from Dr. Reutter and his assistant, Venessa.
My experience with Dr. Liu was wonderful. This was my second endo surgery (longer and more extensive than the first one). I was at a point with pain where I was experiencing light headness and shortness of breath due to the excruciating pain. I did extensive research and her name always came up. I decided to meet her and after our first consultation I knew she was the surgeon for me. She is incredibly compassionate, validating, and caring. I never felt rushed throughout the whole process. Dr. Liu checked on me and answered all my questions for several days if not weeks after my surgery. I felt at peace having her by my side. I had no complications, and after 3 or so weeks I was feeling like myself! Thank you, Dr. Liu! p.s. her whole team is awesome too! Very professional and caring.
Regarding finances, although she is out of network, her team handles everything! this was very important to me because other surgeon’s offices have you pay upfront and then you are responsible to submit the claims for reimbursement to the insurance company. I didn’t want to deal with an insurance company as I was recovering. This is SO important and helpful in the recovery process! Really though. She also has a payment plan which is completely reasonable and worth it. Her whole team makes the process so easy so that you only have to focus on your recovery.
I always felt comfortable and felt like I was getting great care and attention. I trusted the options provided and trusted the general practice.
Dr. Lora Liu is the most trusted Doctor I have been to. She listened thoroughly to all of my symptoms and gave me options for treatment. We decided that a laparoscopic surgery was the best option and I was scheduled four days later. I never had to worry about scheduling, insurance or any logistics as it was all professionally taken care of for me. While in the hospital I had several different nurses say that I was in the best hands and they were right!! Dr. Liu was highly compassionate and spoke to me like a friend, not a patient. We still communicate about post-op and she is very attentive. I am so glad to have found Dr. Liu. Look no further, she is the best choice.
Dr. Liu was extremely thorough and precise with my excision. I was pleased to read the extensive surgical report that truly seemed like she took out every possible suspicious tissue. I had 2 consults with Dr. Liu prior to my surgery. The first one was in office and she was very warm and understanding, which is rare to have in a surgeon. The second one was virtual and a pre-op appointment. Throughout the consults, Dr. Liu was flexible and easy to work with, and opted to increase the number of surgeons present to increase my positive outcomes. Dr. Liu’s finance and scheduling team is very flexible and responsive. I was able to get in for surgery quickly as my symptoms were increasing.
I had 3 surgeons present: Dr. Liu, a urologist, and a OBGYN who worked together to excise tissue as a team. Dr. Liu excises vs ablates tissue which is KEY to a successful endo treatment. She also uses the DaVinci robot, which after doing my own researcher, is a cutting edge technology and not used by every endo excision specialist.
Pain and recovery post surgery was not terrible, and Dr. Liu called me every day to check in on how I was doing. She was also available for questions via email, which made me feel great. Once again, rare to have in a surgeon.
I was expecting more communication about what tissue was removed immediately after the procedure and a thorough walk through of the pathology and surgical report – neither of those happened, thus the 4 star review.
I’d definitely see Dr. Liu again, but hope I don’t have to 🙂
the atmosphere is amazing, with the care he listens to your problems, the staff and the quick service is overall amazing.
Dr. Liu is a phenomenal and overall empathetic surgeon. From my initial consult with her , I felt empowered and like my voice was being heard. She truly validates and tries her best to help endo warriors feel better. Before my surgery , I was having excruciating left sided pelvic pain and having bowel movements literally use to bring me to tears. 3 months post op I can say I am feeling so much better and no longer dealing with the same problems. Endometriosis is a crippling disease but doctors like Lora Liu restore hope in the hearts of patients like myself that have been experiencing debilitating pain for years! Thank you so much Dr. Liu!
Calm, helpful and competent
Dr. Liu was patient, gentle, and kind throughout the entire process – from assessing my x-rays, to coming to the decision to get surgery, to the day of the surgery itself, and beyond. She was thoughtful in her responses to my many many questions, and was incredibly thorough in her explanations. My surgery went off without a hitch and with her support, my recovery has been great.
Dr. Reutter was very clear and positive in each appointment
I highly recommend Dr. Liu! I sought her out an unpleasant experience with another endo specialist. Over the years, Ive grown to be very selective with my medical team. As a Black, queer, femme I have experienced a lot of unselecting experiences in the medical world which has led me to be very attuned to how I am being treated. Dr. Liu instantly made me feel comfortable. She took time to listen to me and not pressure me to make a decision. She is kind, great bedside manners, and takes time to explain things in detail. She is also accessible when needed. As a result of my initial experience with Dr. Liu, I decided to proceed with surgery. I was diagnosed with a very (extremely) rare form of endo which Dr. Liu has not dealt with before. But, my experience with her helped me feel confident in her care. The surgery went smoothly and her whole surgical staff were kind. Dr. Liu also followed up with me regularly after the surgery. Im now 2 months post surgery and I feel great. I cannot not stress how thankful I am for Dr. Lius care and expertise. She will not disappoint!
Dr. Reutter is an exceptional specialist. Aside from being a great physician, he is also an outstanding psychologist.
Dr. Reutter has made this entire treatment process understandable with a clear treatment plan. I trust his judgement and while driving 60+ miles is sometimes difficult, his expertise in pelvic and even spine issues helps immensely,
he was knowledgeable and helpful. he diagnosed and helped solve my issue
had a terrific visit with Dr. Liu. She took her time and listened. She is a kind, caring and very knowledgeable about my very difficult case.
Dr. Liu is the best ever. If you need to see a doctor, you need to see Dr. Liu. She is knowledgeable, she is a gifted surgeon, and her office runs flawlessly. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Liu and her team. I had Endometriosis excision surgery with Dr. Liu in September. She called me each day after surgery to see how I was doing and answer any questions I had. I have never experienced the level of care Dr. Liu offers. She is amazing.
I cannot thank him enough for the difference he has made. He also approached the experience unlike any other physician I’ve seen elsewhere – patient, answered all my questions, never rushed, thoughtful. All I can say is thank you. You give me peace of mind that we will solve this.
I couldn’t possibly put into words how grateful I am for the treatment and care I received from Dr. Liu. I’ve suffered from chronic pelvic pain and painful periods for almost 10 years. I’ve seen more doctors for it than I can count, all of which completely shoved my pain aside and provided no answers and no help. When I made my first appointment with Dr. Liu, I was incredibly anxious to meet with yet another doctor thinking it would be just like all the times before. However, for the first time in my long journey, I was immediately met with compassion and understanding. She listened to every concern and symptom I had. It was very clear how much she cared about my situation and wanted to get to the bottom of things. I had never felt so validated in my life. She carefully explained all my options to me. We decided pretty quickly that surgery was what comes next. She was very thorough and answered all my questions, I never felt rushed. I felt like I could have sat there asking questions for hours if I needed to. Between that appointment and the surgery itself, I also dealt with her whole team who were just as wonderful. By experience up until the surgery itself is enough to give 5 stars. But I am now 6 months post op and I have never felt better. Prior to the surgery, it had gotten to a point where I was in horrible pain every second of every day. Now, I only have a few pain days a month and compared to what it used to be, it feels like nothing. Dr. Liu completely changed my life and I cannot fathom into words how thankful I am for her and her team. I would give a million stars if I could. She is an incredible doctor and person.
It’s so hard to find doctors that understand what you’re going through and actually take the time out to help and figure it out. Dr. Liu is so caring and sincere, I had the best surgery experience with her and her team. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my endometriosis care. She made me feel comfortable through everything and was there for all my questions and how to manage my symptoms. Dr. Liu is extremely knowledgeable in Endometriosis and is the best to go to for pelvic pain. I feel a lot better after surgery, and she is so sweet to check up and make sure everything’s okay. Don’t waste your time going through tons and tons of doctors and not getting the right help. Dr. Liu is the best out there !!
He helped me get answers for pains I had for over a year. It was so helpful that he is also a spine doctor, he really helped explain exactly what was going on and how to fix my pain!
This provider explained and demo on model my condition. Purposed a course of treatment, and was able to get relief. I would recommend this facility and doctor to anyone w pelvic disorder.
really appreciated his positive attitude and candor in how to go about treatment
I’m very pleased with my experience. It’s the first time dealing with my condition that I felt listened. From day one I was given a diagnosis and several treatments to cure my hypertonia. After my treatment plan I have seen a huge improvement and now I’m confident to say that I can go on with my life without this worry.
Dr. Lora Liu is an exceptional individual. She is what every medical professional should strive to be. Dr. Liu is one of the best doctors I have ever had. I have a terrible history of medical trauma, but she singlehandedly restored my trust in health care. Dr. Liu validated my pain. I was dismissed by so many doctors before meeting Dr. Liu. I had been struggling with debilitating pelvic pain for years. Other doctors didn’t take my suffering seriously. They only offered me Advil and birth control pills. Dr. Liu actually listens to her patients. I felt comfortable when I walked into her office. She made me feel safe. She made me feel in control of my treatment. I’ll never forget her saying, “you’re the boss” at my pre-op appointment. She’s absolutely right. It‘s your body. Don’t settle for just any doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Liu to anyone looking for an endometriosis specialist. She performs endometriosis excision, that is the gold standard of treatment. I do my research. I found Dr. Liu on an endometriosis educational Facebook group/website named Nancy’s Nook. Nancy’s Nook works with ICareBetter which is a list of doctors that have been thoroughly screened. This was my first really major surgery. I had endometriosis excision, ovarian cystectomy, total hysterectomy, salpingectomy, an appendectomy, etc. It was performed laparoscopically/vaginally/robotically (minimally invasive surgery as opposed to open surgery). She approved me (a young nulliparous woman) getting a hysterectomy because she rightfully believed me when I said I don’t care about fertility. I have no interest in getting pregnant. I just want to be healthy. I’m so happy I don’t have to cope with the abnormal bleeding any longer. I have no regrets. I wish I could have had it done sooner but I’m pleased that it was Dr. Liu who did it. She acknowledged my medical trauma and provided trauma-informed care. She checked on me before my surgery and after my surgery at Jersey City Medical Center. She called me each day for several days after the surgery too. She always responded to any emails I sent her. She made me feel like I was her only client. She answers all of your questions. She doesn’t rush you out of the room like other doctors tend to do and she actually takes you on time for appointments because she knows that your time matters as much as her time does. She eased the worries of my mom, my caregiver. She genuinely cares about her patients. I am now about 7 weeks post-op and am feeling a lot better. I’m able to go to the bathroom normally! Prior to surgery I was experiencing severe fecal impaction. So the surgery was very successful in treating the disease. As an added bonus, she works with an excellent urological surgeon, Dr. Yaniv Larish. This was super beneficial to me because one of my symptoms was bladder pain. I received her operative report, his operative report, and the pathology report confirming my endometriosis diagnosis as soon as it was available in my patient portal. Dr. Liu wasn’t covered by my insurance, but she was completely worth it. And there is a payment plan option. Her team at Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine still checked with my insurance though and made sure that the hospital and anesthesiologist were in network. The surgical coordinator scheduled a date for my surgery ASAP. Invest in your health. Your health is the most important part of your life. Dr. Liu is a highly skilled gynecological surgeon. I am forever grateful for her. I would definitely give her more than 5 stars if I could. The best decision I ever made was choosing to have my procedure with Dr. Liu. She saved my life.
came here after a bad in-network doctor treated me without results, the doctors and all staff at this location have been wonderful, i feel so much better.
Dr. Liu is truly one of a kind! She is an attentive, caring, highly knowledgeable, skilled and compassionate doctor. I have suffered with endometriosis for 25 years and was losing all hope of having a quality of life. From the moment I met Dr. Liu at my initial consultation, I knew I was in the best hands. She is extremely thorough, answered all of my questions, and eased all of my fears leading up to the day of my surgery. The morning of my surgery, Dr. Liu came to check on me and after surgery she was always there for me as well. She called me every morning for several days after surgery to see how I was and was always a great source of comfort. I am now six weeks post op and am feeling so much better already! She is an excellent surgeon! My little one even asked me to give Dr. Liu a sticker and tell her she did a “Good job!” at my post op appointment! My family and I will be forever grateful to Dr. Liu for all of her care and support. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an endometriosis specialist.

Dr. Liu validated my experiences after years of pain and a prior surgery that was ineffective in completely removing my endometriosis! The recovery of surgery has been incredible and my pain has significantly reduced from about an 8/10 to a 2-3/10! As someone who felt ignored by an arsenal of doctors and gynaecologists since the age of 12, meeting Dr. Liu has been life changing. I am so so incredibly grateful and would recommend her services and Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine to anyone struggling with pelvic pain!
Dr. Liu is one of the best doctors I have ever had the experience of meeting and receiving treatment/surgery from. She is knowledgable, sincere, genuine, and determined to help people get the relief they need. Her team took care of me with respect and compassion. When I went in for surgery I was not scared and was laughing with the team. They made me feel so comfortable and the surgery was smooth. The surgery was also VERY successful in giving me relief. I know endometriosis is a long term diagnosis, but Dr. Liu makes me feel confident knowing I’m in good hands and I won’t be abandoned. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone! 10/10
Dr Liu is everything you could want in a surgeon – extremely knowledgeable, skilled, but also empathetic, kind, and really cares about her patients. This was my second surgery to remove stage 4 endometriosis, and Dr Liu patiently sat through my questions, assuaged my fears, called me daily for the first few days after surgery, and continued to check up via email. She was quick to respond to emails, even on the weekend. I would highly recommend Dr Liu to everyone who is suffering from endometriosis or other gynecological pain.
Dr. Reutter was a patient listener and developed a clear and comprehensive course of treatment
Had my surgery 6 weeks ago with Dr. Liu and had such a positive experience. I had a very complex case of endo that could have potentially damaged one of my kidneys. Her and my urologist, Dr. Larish, have both been amazing. Performed a very difficult excision surgery on me and completely resolved my kidney issues. I had a consult with another big named excision specialist in the city and I am SO GLAD I waited for Dr. Liu. She answered all of my MANY questions and always made herself available after my surgery. She is very thorough and gave me all my options before surgery. She called to check on me daily after my surgery and that meant a lot. All around great surgeon.
I just started with Dr Ahmed in my healing journey and she has taken so much time to give me personal care and answer all of my crazy and long winded, googled questions as I navigate my pelvic pain. I’m looking forward to continuing to working with her—I have a feeling she is gonna change my life (cuz she already has started!)
Dr Reutter is caring and professional. He makes you feel comfortable and has great listening skills. He makes himself available and has great bed side manners. You truly feel supported when you are in his care.
Dr. Liu is by far the most exceptional medical professional I’ve ever encountered as both a patient and being a health care provider myself. Dr. Liu performed my extensive 5 hour surgery for stage IV endometriosis which had deeply infiltrated my pelvic cavity and reproductive organs. After a 15 year journey to finally receive a diagnosis and the gold standard of treatment (deep excision laparoscopic surgery), Dr. Liu became the shinning light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel to finally feeling relief from chronic pain and debilitating fatigue. It was an emergency room visit this February 2021 that resulted in finally receiving the diagnostic imaging that demonstrated the extent of damage my endometriosis had caused. After years of frustrating gynecologist appointments when ultrasound testing and or other scans were denied to me despite complaints of 10/10 pain for a week with my period and ongoing symptoms of fatigue, bloating, food intolerances, and chronic lower back pain from age 15 to now being 31 years old. There wasn’t a single doctor that offered a possible diagnosis or solution to my pain other than birth control pills. When I finally received the diagnosis of endometriosis it was several months of research to find the best treatment options. After reading extensively I knew surgery would be my best option to achieve some relief and possibly an end to my chronic pain. Of most importance was being able to start a family as endometriosis is a leading cause of infertility. I met with the best surgeons that specialize in deep excision surgery in New York, most of which were male, until I finally stepped into Dr. Liu’s office and felt not only understood but in the most capable hands. Dr. Liu set aside a great length of time to explain the entire surgery to my husband and I and then answered my list of about 20-30 questions without rushing. What impressed me the most is her continual discussion of my quality of life and how she could best help me achieve my health goals. For the first time, I felt heard and understood as a patient with a chronic illness. Dr. Liu’s office helped me schedule a surgical date right away and assisted me with signing up for a support group for other pre-operative patients with endometriosis. It was so helpful to have a supportive counselor to help me discover coping strategies. Surgery day went just as Dr. Liu had described and I was able to go home on the same day. Recovery was completely manageable despite the anticipated pain and bloating associated with abdominal surgery. Dr. Liu called for several days after surgery to make sure I was doing well. She responded to emails with questions and concerns in an extremely timely manner, reassuring me even further that she is a healthcare hero, being not only a surgeon but a safeguard of her patients health and quality of life after surgery. I’m now 8 weeks post operative and have finally be able to return to exercising after so many years of having to come home and nap after work from sheer fatigue and exhaustion of dealing with debilitating pain. I’ve even noticed a significant reduction in pelvic pain with my period . Where as in the past I might have needed pain medication every 4 hours for 4-5 days to be able to get out of bed and function I have only need 1-2 Tylenol just for the first day of my period and then no cramps for the remainder of the week. That has given me so much relief that not only was the surgery a success on the day of with no complications but that I’m now disease free and able to have a chance at a normal life. Dr. Liu has changed my life in more ways then she will ever know. I would travel across the world to come and have deep excision laparoscopic surgery for my endometriosis with Dr. Liu. If you’re considering surgery for endometriosis please contact her office at Pelvic Medicine Rehabilitation, you will be in the most capable surgical hands with the most compassionate hearted individual. Dr. Liu is truly exceptional.
I’ve been coming to Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine since July of 2017, and the treatment I have received has been extraordinary. Each time I see Dr. Reutter he answers all of my questions and addresses all of my symptoms and concerns. I highly recommend him and this practice in general. Without the help of this office, daily life functions would be extremely grueling to complete. I’m extremely grateful for this amazing team.
Dr. Reutter is a great listener and compassionate… We don’t feel alone anymore…
