I have been going to Dr. Luks for many years. He's done several orthopedic procedures, including several surgeries, and he is one of the most skilled, compassionate physicians I've ever had the pleasure of being a patient of. I will continue to see him in the future as I trust him in his expertise and skills.

I will always be grateful for Dr. Luks. He performed a bucket handle meniscus repair on me, last July. Had I not been lucky enough to have his skills, my meniscus would have likely been removed and I would not be running . More than that, he is a genuinely nice man who cares about you, remembers you, etc. My only fear is suffering another knee injury in years to come and Dr Luks is retired.

Went to Dr Luks for a second opinion concerning knee arthritis and meniscus damage. He spent 20 minutes explaining my mri and why I need not stop running. He also helped me formulate a new training plan. Dr Luks is the go to guy for runners. Don’t let a non running doctor give you canned advice about your body and joints. Go to someone who understands and cares. Dr. Luks is awesome!

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.
