HAD A WONDEFUL OPERATION THAT HAS MADE ME MUCH MUCH BETTER
in Kingman AZ |
My first surgery was a Bilateral Laminectomy in 2013 that was totally successful. This time I have an ALIF spinal fusion L4/5 in February 2016. All my symptoms disappeared after the surgery; no tingling, numbness, sciatica, etc. Dr Lu's staff is very professional and compassionate. Since I live out of state it was very easy to communicate by email with his staff, especially his personal assistant Naomi. All Dr's offices need a Naomi!!!! I would differently recommend Dr Lu!!!
in Glendora, CA |
Dr. Lu and his residents, fellows, and staff were very professional and knowledgeable. I was given the confidence that my tumor would be easily removed and was the reason for all my problems over the past 2+ years. I am so grateful for Dr. Lu. He is the reason I'm still able to walk.
