Dr Lukish is a very friendly and knowledgeable doctor, who would take the patient and parents into a step by step process and make sure we understand. The results of the operation on our son was perfect; the follow up was also very good Good doctor.

Doctor is skilled at his profession... only when he is available. He appears to be kind at first but I do not think he actually cares for his patients. The staff and manager is rude They never answer the phone so its difficult to get an arrangement.

Dr. Lukish is a wonderful doctor/surgeon. Our daughter has a couple different issues going on and he took the time to review her entire medical history and “connect the dots”. He treats his patients as if they were his own children. Highly recommend Dr. Lukish.

Dr Lukish took the time to explain and describe our child's diagnosis. Outstanding bedside manner. He ordered a confirmatory study that we obtained a week later. The next day following the study he called to give us the report. His staff called shortly thereafter and scheduled the surgery. The operation and care afterwards was perfect. A wonderful experience! He is an outstanding doctor.

Highly recommend Dr. L. The first time we saw him was in the hospital with no time to research or make informed decisions about who would operate on our son. He understood our panic and took his time with us and addressed all our concerns. Great bedside manner. Second time we met him we sought his advice for our other son.(2 years later) Hopefully we don’t need to use a pediatric surgeon again but if we do it will certainly be Dr. Lukish.

Very rushed and aloof. Doesn't take the time to explain things or for you to ask questions. Very casual about the surgery. A pretty uncaring doctor, especially considering he is in Pediatrics. In hindsight I wish we would have used someone else. Staff friendly but also casual and clueless when you ask questions.

Very dismissive of our concerns and gave us very little time. We saw another surgeon who was able to find and correct the underlying issues.

My son had to wait 3 weeks before getting an appointment. (Keep in mind, this is my sons first major surgery EVER.) We finally saw the dr for not even ten minutes on 09/07/16, he didn't even ask us if we had questions, which I had written down 8 to discuss with the dr. I emailed him the same day, and several times later and left voicemails in the meantime. I never got a response until 09/22, which he did said someone would contact us to schedule the ct scan, here it is 09/23 and still nothing.
