Very fast annual exam; (10 min); my previous Dr. spent 20 min, was very thorough and spent time with questions. Dr. Lum seemed to be in a rush,

Office staff is rude, especially the office manager, Monica. They refuse to acknowledge when they make clerical errors and refuse to find any solution to problems other than it’s not their fault. They gave my sister someone else’s prescription and tried to blame that on the patient as well. There are plenty of other doctors in town to choose from who have a friendly staff who is happy to help the patients. I wouldn’t recommend this place to a dying dog.

I am glad to have found Dr. Lum after my original GYN retired. She is thorough in her exams and follow-up and her office staff is top notch.

Avoid this place!! Refused to accept my insurance. When my insurance called them and TOLD them they are in network, they still refused!! My insurance company told me they were incredibly rude and I should find another doctor!! Sad thing is, Dr. Lum will probably never find out how incompetent her staff is!!

Dr. Lum had been my doctor since I moved to the area in 2004. She has always responded in a timely many to my calls. She has always made me feel at ease and been very personable. The office staff is very kind and welcoming. I highly recommend her office if you're looking for OB.

I am beyond picky about my health care providers! I absolutely love Dr. Lum and had a complete hysterectomy robotic surgery operation performed by her! I trusted her to make a decision in the operating room regarding my ovaries and the condition I was in! Being in my late 30's this was a big decision and she went through every scenario! I'm so glad she made a professional judgment call and saved me from continual pain suffering! I trusted her with my life and will continue to use her! BEST OB!

Dr. Lum is cold, unconcerned and distant in her approach to the patient. The office staff is uncooperative and unconcerned. Monica from "billing" is totally unresponsive and dismissive. After 5 months of repeated requests for reimbursement of deposit demanded despite having proof of insurance payment, still not processed blaming some "accountant"
