Wonderful Dr. Really cares and shows it!!!

Wonderful, "bedside manner", Dr. Luckwitz has been a hero to me! It has been difficult gaining help with my chronic pain. As media is so focused on prescription drug abuse, I can't recall any discussion about whether ANY case can be made for adequate pharmaceutical help to pain patients. It was a long while for me finding adequate pain relief to function before being referred to Dr Luckwitz. For me, it is not hyperbole to say Dr. Luckwitz is a lifesaver.

Dr. John Luckwitz punctured my lung at Southwest Washington Medical Center's (SWWMC) Pain Clinic in Vancouver, WA., after receiving pain injections to my back in a morning visit to his office. By evening, I was in severe pain and went to the ER at SWWMC., in Vancouver. In the waiting room someone said to "Make him wait" and whispered "Munchausen's"--a syndrome where injury is feigned to get attention. Days later, Dr. Luckwitz said this was a "spontaneous collapse" and was not true. Awful.

Awesome doc!! I can't think of even 1 thing I've been unhappy with, and I've been going to him for years! Love this guy: he's professional, caring, thorough, and he really knows what he's doing. Hard to find all these things in 1 doctor, in this day and age.

I have been seeing Dr. Luckwitz for about 7 years after being teansferred from Dr. Wang's practice. There have been few providers who have ever shown the type of compassionate care, listen & educate, pay attention to details while attempting to provide pain intervention the least invasive ways first. So many providers want to jump to surgery immediately but this clinic does not operate that way!!! So thankful to have found my provider who is the best Physicisn with the best staff in the world!??
