I absolutely LOVE Dr. Luebke and thank God for him every day. He saved my life!!! He is the kindest, most caring person and made me feel so positive right from the very start of my cancer journey. He went to Sanford, and I followed him. I recommend him to everyone!

He hit a nerve in my back while administering me with an epidural and denied it. He also taunted me while I was in labor with my son. I would give this doctor no stars if I could.

Review for Dr. Lo

I had a very bad experience with Dr. Cote. How can he care pass as a doctor these days? He misdiagnosed my issue, and his surgery not only didn't fix my elbow pain, but it's worse now. He didn't even see me after surgery, as if he knew he messed up.
