Patient Comments (6)
in Grand Junction, CO |
I received outstanding care from Dr. Luker at St. Mary’s in May 2017 for a reverse total shoulder surgery. Every encounter I have with Dr. Luker is top notch. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, compassionate, competent, and interested in my well-being. He demonstrated what medicine is –as it should be– an art as well as a science. He has restored my faith in orthopedic surgery!! THANK YOU!

He has done two of my knee surgerys and helped to create the best solution for me. Was very professional and actually took the time to answer the many questions I had
in Denver, CO |
I had a bucket handle tear of my meniscus. Dr. Luker made room for me in his schedule with short notice. His PA and nurses educated me and reduced my stress. Dr. Luker appeared, reaffirmed my education and clearly stated his plan. Extended time decreases the potential of repair. He got me in surgery that week. He repaired the meniscus against some ugly odds. I found him honest, competent and capable. He made every effort for me. He and his team are greatly appreciated. I am a big fan
in Rifle, CO |
I visited Dr. Luker at the recommendation of a family member who is an occupational therapist. I was told that the therapists felt he did some of the best work and their patients were happy with him. At 43 I was sick of the nearly 30 years of pain I had been in following an accident in my early teens. Dr. Luker was professional and informative. He went over several options for my particular issue and it was elected that I would undergo a partial knee replacement. I'm quite happy with his work.

If there was less than one star I would leave that. I had a total knee replacement done by Luker, his PA, Daryl, December 2012. Break in the sterile field during surgery which is serious in most surgical cases, but more so when involving a total joint procedure. The problem wasn't found until ONE HOUR into the operation. Multiple people had their hands on the contaminated item and then touching my open wound! An infected knee, 3 surgeries, antibiotics. Luker no responsibility!! Still in pain
in Comanche, TX |
HORRIBLE! Rude, dismissive, had no interest in what I was saying, what my areas of concern were. I left in tears. I am scared to go back to this office for fear other Dr.'s would treat me similarly. If you are moderately overweight or overweight at all BEWARE! This is NOT the Dr. for you. I appreciate directness and not wasting time but I was humiliated and degraded. Had another Dr. at another office take the same xrays with EXTREMELY different results.
