Dr. Lou did surgery on my daughter in December. He went above and beyond to make her feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He was very thorough and explained everything in terms we could understand. Dr. Lou was always available and willing to answer any questions we had, which was very comforting to me as a parent. His office staff was very friendly, professional, and willing to answer questions as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Lou to anyone needing care for their child. Thank you Dr. Lou!

My son had surgery in March with Dr Lou and we couldn’t be happier with the results! Dr. Lou took his time to explain everything in detail and answer any questions we had. He even took the extra time to call and get our insurance to approve the surgery. I would defiantly recommend Dr Lou!

Dr Lou took care of my son after a sports injury. He was very thorough and took the time to make sure he explained everything and answered all of our questions. His work is impeccable and my son looks as if the injury never happened. He went the extra mile to make sure my son was happy with the outcome.

My experience with Dr. Lou was outstanding. Everything was explained throughly multiple times so I knew exactly what was going on. My family and friends were informed with how I was doing in my surgery multiple times. All my question were answered before surgery and all have been answered since. He has helped every step with the healing process and the line is always open to call for questions.

Dr. Lou performed an excision of a lesion on our daughters scalp. Dr. Lou is pleasant, polite, and takes his time to thoroughly address any questions or concerns that you may have. We highly recommend Dr. Lou and would gladly return for any future care of our children.

Complete professional. He treated my 11 year old daughter. She felt completely comfortable with him. Dr Lou removed a cyst on her face and the scar was nearly impossible to see even as soon as the bandages were removed. Excellent work! Highly recommend him and his staff at Akron Children’s Hospital.

Dr. Lou went above and beyond to help my son, even when in the middle of surgery he ran into some unexpected problems he tirelessly worked on for nearly 5 hours until my son was as good as new. Absolutely no sign of injury. Thank you again Dr. Lou.

Dr Lou put plates in my daughter's cheek bone and eye socket after an accident. We were scared and she had been thru quite a trauma. Dr Lou has great bed side manner and explained everything he was going to be doing to both my daughter and I in terms that we could understand. Our follow up care was the same. He spent a good deal of time with us making sure we didn't have additional questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend Dr Lou to anyone in need of plastic surgery.

Dr. Lou treated me and my son with great care. He took the time to explain the procedure in detail and answer all of our questions. He was also concerned with making sure he got my son's nose back to its original form. As a mother I was pleased with the level of care Dr. Lou provided.

Dr. Lou performed surgery on my daughter after she broke her nose. Even though it was a fairly minor procedure, my daughter was very nervous. Dr. Lou took the time to explain the procedure and answer all of her questions. He was friendly, professional and respectful throughout the whole process. He even took a picture of her nose right after the procedure so that my daughter could feel confident that the surgery was a success.

It was great experience. He told us everything he did and what to expect and things went beter than we expected. SURGERY was earlier than scheduled, which made it more comfortable for my daughter. No wait time. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Thank You, Moore Family. PATIENT: Jillian Moore
