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.
Thank you for your feed back, it helps let us know how we need to improve. I will be forwarding this information so that it can be taken care of.

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.
