Learn about Dr. Lu

Care Philosophy

Pregnancy is one of the unique times in medicine when our treatment or decision impacts at least two patients, and in some instances theree or more. Despite the fact that women have been giving birth since the beginning of time, Dr. Lu feels that the field of obstetrics is only beginning to understand the complexities of pregnancy and how best to help women have safe pregnancies and healthy babies. Dr. Lu is constantly looking at ways to improve the care of women and their babies. He is a firm believer that patient care should be driven by the ''best-evidence'' available. However, since there is still so much to be learned, in many instances consideration of a person's unique situation has to be factored in the decision making process.

St Joseph, MO |
Going into a high-risk pregnancy facility is probably one of the worst fears for an expecting mother. My husband and I went to see Dr. Lu upon referral from my regular OBGYN. Dr. Lu has an incredibly calming nature about him and was able to explain to my husband and I in much detail what was going on with our baby. We walked into that facility with a multitude of questions and feelings of fear. Upon leaving however, we had our questions answered and our fear had subsided thanks to Dr. Lu.

Dr. Lu is the best OB I have ever met or had deliver my children. He is a wise, educated, experienced and kind doctor. He is calm, very easy-going and trustworthy. He is a great listener. I would choose Dr. Lu over any other dr I have ever had. My deliveries with Dr. Lu were smooth and calm even in the pain of labor. He does not make decisions hastily and he considers his patient's needs in all situations. It is obvious that Dr. Lu cares. I miss him greatly. Fabulous doctor, a God send.
