What People Say About Dr. Allen Lu, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Office staff is rude and incompetent. There is no desire to help patients find treatment and get even the most basic care. Seeking orthopedic treatment is often time sensitive yet they can't seem to schedule patients sooner then 4 months out. Their office manager seems to work when she wants to and no one knows her schedule and she never returns calls.

He is recongnized as one of the best surgeons in town. But very bussy doctor office leads on waste of time on each follow up visit. At least 1 and 1/2 hour. Would reconsider before to come again.

About Me

Care Philosophy

Medicine is truly an art. Any technician can follow a formula, but only an artist will truly examine and appreciate each patient as an individual. When you have an injury, you don't want to be treated like a number or like everyone else, because you are not like everyone else. We cannot make everyone perfect, but we can taylor your treatment to you, so that you can be the best that you can be.
