Dr. Lu is an excellent dermatologist, although he does have some of the issues found in other offices these days. You may have to wait a bit to see him as he does have a lot of people coming in, but he is competent and caring. I had a basal cell that had returned, and when I told him I wanted to make sure it was removed permanently, he did not hesitate to refer me to another very competent dermatologist that performed Mohs surgery. He has also always answered all of my questions.

Doctor Lu is very kind heart'ed and caring physician. Waiting time is usually less than 20 minutes.

He seemed so busy and the time he spent with me was so short that it's difficult to write a thorough review. The waiting room was so jammed and the delay in seeing him was totally unreasonable. He should not schedule so many patients and he should be more considerate of sick people having to wait for him----first time was over 30 minutes and the second time was an hour.
Spring Hill, FL |
Dr. Lu is a good doctor but very poor on office management. With over scheduling of appointments, you WILL wait and frequently it is as much as 3 or more after your appointment time before you see him. When I made mention to the nurses about the long wait, they laughed stating they get there on time referring that the doctor is the reason for such lateness in appointments.
