I would give Dr. Lutman 10 star if it were possible. He saved my life. Was very sad when he moved from Dayton, Ohio. He cares for the person he is working with. He treats you like family. If he would not do it for his family he will not do it to you. He even gave me his mobile phone number if I had any question I could call him personally. How many doctor's care about an person to get out phone number.

Dr Lutman has been one of the kindest doctors I have met and consulted with. My insurance would not cover his care so I had to travel 5 hours away to get quality care. I highly recommend him.

Dr Lutman is an Excellent doctor. When I was diagnosed back in 2012, I was Very Afraid and Scared. He was with me Every Step of the way. He personally reached out to me when I missed my appointment. He cared about my overall health.. as well as my Mental health. I Wish that he was still here in Ohio!!!! He was very Professional and Courteous!!!I would Highly Recommend Dr Lutman to anyone!!! His Staff was just as Amazing!!

I' am a 49 year old female patient of Dr. Lutman's from when he worked in Dayton, Ohio. I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in January 2014 in the emergency room on a Friday, that next Monday I was scheduled with him. He is the most caring Doctor and he will always holds a very special place in my heart. God of coarse and this brilliant man saved my life. I miss seeing him and just knowing that he is there for me. I have had to move on and I' am still doing great.

Dr. Lutman treated me for endometrial cancer 3 years ago. You will never find a more caring or compassionate physian anywhere. He treats his patients as individuals, not a number or a diagnosis. He takes the time necessary to answer your questions and explains things so that any layman can understand him. I can't say enough positive things about him. He will be a Godsend to any patient and their family.
