Patient Comments (4)
Dr. Lutz is a caring and compassionate doctor who listens to my concerns. He has helped me tremendously with my back pain and sciatica. He takes the time to explain what is wrong and provided treatments that have really helped. I can see why he has many awards on his walls. His wait times are better than most other doctors, and his staff is friendly. The office is neat, modern and clean. I would highly recommend Dr. Lutz to any of my friends or family.
in Marion, IN |
I had an EMG and consult with DR. Lutz. His bedside manner was not caring at all. He had me flipping back and forth for the EMG did not offer to help at all, left bloody gauze where I was supposed to lay my head and had the EMG machine in the way so I was kicking it when I had to turn over, perhaps he could use an assistant there? He rushed through the consult and only offered me one alternative for pain relief. I could tell he was hurried and did not care. I still have many unanswered questions
Ft Wayne, IN |
excellent bed side manner, caring, and thorough.
in New Haven, IN |
He told me that his job was to have patients learn how to live with pain. Has no business telling patients that.
