What People Say About Dr. Njira Lugogo, MD

Dr Lugogo is the kindest, most compassionate, and smartest doctor I’ve seen. She finally has my asthma under control and ordered correct tests to find secondary diagnoses which were making my symptoms worse. She is always available via email and is more than willing to call me if I have questions or concerns. She makes me feel safe in her care. I don’t trust many doctors but I do trust her.

Dr. Lugogo was very personable and explained things to me. She showed me my CT scan result and explained what it meant. I felt very confident in her care.
