Dr. Luks is great at taking the right course after asking good questions and listening. He is focused on me and not distracted, and will use different techniques to assess a situation. He is also excellent at explaining his thinking and helping me understand more about the problem I'm having.

He performed my second knee replacement and yes i will say it was painful but Dr. Luks did his job to make sure i was comfortable..He takes very good care of his patients.. He's a very smart Doctor and knows what he's talking about. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs an orthopedic surgeon..
