Dr. Lu is an excellent doctor. He was professional, courteous and very thorough. He was extremely capable with taking care of all my dermatological needs. He detected and successfully removed the cancer above my eye.

Very personable, efficient, knowledgeable and you develop a sincere feeling of trust. One of the few times I do not dread going to the doctor. Terrific nursing staff which is a great deal of helping feel at ease! Was completely satisfied and now have my wife as his patient also!

Wait time is ridiculous! Every time it's 45 minutes to an hour and beyond. I don't care how good a so called doctor is, my time is valuable also. My last visit was today and was told there were 5. People ahead of me. Send me my records, I'm leaving. Doc, you're fired!
