Patient Comments (14)

I saw him for a cyst or boil on my cheek that I cut while shaving. He came into the room, barely looked at me, and said, "uh oh, that looks like a skin cancer forming," as he left the room and asked his nurse to take a biopsy.

While we appreciate your feedback, this is a concern that is best discussed by contacting our office. We cannot comment on any specifics regarding diagnosis and treatment on a public platform.

Omg stay away from dr. Luckasen. He evaluated my body for potential skin cancer under two minutes. No way would I trust him. And his staff Nurse seemed angry or scared. Do not trust him go to someone else. Now I know why he is easy to get appts with.
