Dr Lustgarten is a highly skilled, compassionate, dedicated physician who performed a microdiscectomy on me for a large, crippling disc herniation which allowed me to resume work in 3 weeks. He is committed to the highest level of care, as are the wonderful staff in his office. I have entrusted him with my family members. In fact, he operated on my father-in-law who could not walk due to spinal stenosis 10 years ago and now my father-in-law runs 4 miles a day. At age 85! Dr Lustgarten is a gem

Dr Lustgarten is very good at what he does! He performed an ACDF February 2015 for me. He did a really great job I will say! I was involved in another MVA 8 month's after my surgery and when I went in to see him he pushed me away like it was nothing. He was only worried about the hardware he put in. Well I just had another cervical fusion done June 2016 that he said was just whiplash! Oh and his NP what a joke, treated me like a piece of sh@t! She should not be in the medical field.

Unsatisfactory. He performed a simple laminectomy in April, 2015 to hopefully ease severe pain in my left,buttock/thigh areas. To date, very little improvement. Now have numbness/sporadic pain in both feet/lower legs that didn't exist prior to surgery. Difficult to reach directly, protected by a zealous office staff that simply passes on messages. Don't question his knowledge but if you seek TLC, this is not the place. Feel like I'm back on square one with a year wasted.

This man is TOPS! I was in such severe pain after a ruptured herniated disk. I was released from another hospital after three days...as bad as when I went in to Emergency. We found him doing reaserch on the internet and called on a Friday. After explaining the severity of my injury Dr Lustrgarten saw me on the following Monday. After looking at my MRI, and seeing the severity on my injury, he admitted me directly to the hospital and did a Microdisectomy the following morning! He is 100% the best
