in Murrieta |
Dr Luna is WONDERFUL! Very knowledgeable. He diagnosed me and within a month had surgery scheduled. His office was always friendly and if I ever did have to wait, which rarely happened they were always apologetic. They helped me and were very quick with my paperwork for time off from work. Best thing as well was no matter how silly the question or issue post surgery, no matter the time Dr. Luna would call back very quickly!!!' If I ever needed anything again would go back to him in a heart b

Dr Luna is the best. Like a top rated body mechanic. Hes great bedside, explains, diagrams, talks, cares. Im going in for #3 with him, he's doing my friends. His office staff had some issues but they have been working very hard to correct it.
in Temecula, CA |
Dr Luna operated on my back in 2013. Choosing him was the best decision I made for my health! I recovered from spinal fusion without any problems. A few months after the surgery I was back to running 3 miles/day (I am now 77). He is very caring and I received personal attention from him. I would never have another surgeon!
Temecula, CA |
Waited two hours. Front office staff messed up my referral. While I was waiting I overheard several other upset patients with the same problem. After my visit with him, we will be seeking a second opinion. Not impressed.

I went to Dr. Luna for back problems, scoliosis and neck problems, which he diagnosed, but NEVER bothered to transmit to my main doctor who'd referred me to him. His office is NOW unreachable, as he's moved, and left no forwarding information, leaving my disability hanging in limbo.
in Homeland, CA |
My experience with Dr Luna was great. After a year of being sent from one specialist to another and being told I had this wrong and then that wrong but no one did anything Dr. Luna diagnosed me correctly, and took care of the problem. He listened to my story of my year long ordeal, spent time with me explaining the diagnosis and showing me my ex-rays, MRI's etc...and didn't rush the appointment. It is a true gift to find a doctor who actually LISTENS to what you are saying. Thank you Dr. Luna
in Norco, CA |
Great dr.my mother had spine, servical and carpol tunnel surgury with great results of at least better than the pain she was going thru. We have to consider that these surguries help your quality of life to ease the pain or in some cases no pain. No dr. can give back what we once had. He can help it be less painful. This dr. gave us the confidence needed to under take such surguries he so conforting, polite before and after he always listens to you with no time limite hard to find very pleased..
in Murrieta, CA |
Dr. Luna received my MRI I had done on Wednesday evening the next day Thursday he checked me into Loma Linda in Murrieta and performed fusion on C4-5 using my hip bone instead of cadaver bone. I have palsy in my left deltoid due to damaged nerves. I'm unable to externally elevate my left arm more than 30degrees or raise my left arm. We are hoping rehab will bring that back now that surgery is complete and prior pain has left. This is my 3rd surgery c6-7 and c5-6 were done by different doctor
From one easy S1/L5 surgery to 3 failed surgeries. He punctured my spinal cord and damaged my S2 nerve. Please don't use him as I would not like the same thing to happen to anyone else. My back / body is worse off now then before my first one.
