Patient Comments (2)

he has a HORRIBLE bedside manner, before and after surgery. Showed no interest at all in my concerns and is very rude and rough physically. I would not recommend him to my worst enemy. PLEASE find someone else!!

It was a pleasure dealing with Dr. Lugo. He explained everything about the liver surgery and put my mind at ease that I had chosen the best surgeon for the job. His staff was extremely friendly and answered all my questions. Thanks Dorothy and Pam.
