Dr.Luck is a very talented Doctor. He helped my daughters vision improve immensely. However, dr.Luck has a receptionist with red hair..that yelled directly at my 2 year old autistic child because he was making noise. Dr.Luck did apologize to me, the same receptionist came by me..said seriously?..rolled her eyes and walked past me. She was disgustingly rude. My daughter loved Dr.Luck..but i cannot go back..for the receptionist did not correct the ignorance she displayed.
Thank you very much for your input and it was noted. Here at Millennium Ophthalmology, we like to provide a serene environment so that all our patients will feel comfortable while waiting to be seen. For the benefit of all, we may need to address a situation that impacts on the majority of the waiting patients. I am happy that we were able to improve your daughter's sight and look forward to continuing her care in the future.

Excellent Doctor, horrible wait time. Was able to diagnose me with something that was overlooked by my neurologist and endocrinologist. He spent almost an hour with me, although I was late for work I appreciated the extensive workup.
I'm very glad that I was able to diagnose your eye problem. Sometimes it takes more than 5 minutes to figure out a complex issue (as you said, missed by two of your other doctors) so the time has to come from somewhere. The extra time I spent with you caused other people to wait as well. At Millennium Ophthalmology, we take the time to listen and treat you as a person, and still give quality care. Hope to see you again.
