What People Say About Dr. Matthew Luxenberg, MD

Highly recommend Dr. Luxenberg. I've entrusted him with my dermatological needs for years. I initially discovered him through an insurance company referral when I lived in Long Beach but now drive from Los Angeles to continue under his care. He's professional, knowledgeable, personable and thorough. I go to him for all general care (preventative/annual mole checks, rashes, etc.) and more recently optional treatments like Dysport and fillers. Will continue to refer my friends and family.

First visited Dr. Matthew Luxenberg 5/11/2016 for shingles. Shot and pills were given. Second visited 4/5/2017 due to concerned growth on right knee. He removed for further testing and said he would call back. I called twice to followed up on 4/10/2016 and 4/17/2017, left messages to Maria to have him call back and up to now NOT a words from this doctor. I am raising my voices with other websites so others don't have to be in my situation right now.

An excellent, very knowledgeable doctor; he is great for treatment of psoriasis, including that which is recalcitrant to treatment. Friendly, affable doctor that gets down to the business of treating your problem. Very helpful staff. I travel 110 miles one way for his care, on LA freeways, and I don't regret it.
