There is no way this so called Doctor is deserving or qualified to be receiving the ratings that are posted. Based on the negative experience I had with this man, I honestly believe he has illegally conjured up these ratings. I had the same experience as one other young lady where he raised his voice at me and was just plain nasty for no reason. He even had the nerve to respond to one of my ratings saying I didn't want to accept his diagnosis. Well I have seen two reputable and highly recommended Doctors since him and neither Doctor agreed with the diagnosis he gave me. This man had not given me all of the required screenings to come up with his diagnosis, whereas the other Doctors gave me every required screening which showed Luthra to be totally incorrect regarding his diagnosis. I don't know what it is, but there is something not right going on with this guy, and if you read another post similar to mind BELIEVE IT. I was also told my other Doctors that his report on me was inaccurat

I highly recommend Dr. Luthra’s services. I am a new patient who called his office asking for an urgent care. I was received by Dr. Luthra right away. He explained diagnosis and treatment in great details, most importantly he calmed me down. I’m on my way to recovery after two weeks of treatment. I’ve been back to his office several times. Dr. Luthra and his staff have been wonderful. Everyone is super-friendly, professional, and humorous (that helped me a lot in a stressful situation).

My daughter's eye was injured while we were vacationing in DC. Dr. Luthra and the staff at Columbia Eye Assoc. took excellent care of her. They immediately put her at ease and could not have been more compassionate. They helped her through a very painful and frustrating experience. My only regret... we don't live close enough for him to be our primary eye doctor.
