What People Say About Dr. Rixt Luikenaar, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr Luikenaar and her team are highly unprofessional. I went in for an annual check up. Without asking me or getting my consent, she gave me a swab because supposedly she saw some discharge. I was charged $153.36 (luckily not the full cost of the swab which was $663.00) because their office did not code it as preventative. At no point did she even mention the swab to me or ask if I was having any symptoms of an infection (which I was not). They also did not code my pap as preventative.

I found Dr. Luikenaar at the very end of my pregnancy. She spent so much personal quality time with me. Her staff is so nice. She was very informative and professional, her bed side manner is excellent. She let us make so many decisions and she really makes you feel like she is there for you. She explains everything and gives you options. I want to have another baby just to see her!

So caring and kind. She really listens to you instead of clacking notes on a laptop. And she has a beautiful energy about her.

Dr Luikenaar has been my choice for specialized care for the last 3 years. She is very caring and works to have the care meet your individual needs. She is constantly expanding her offerings and gives to the community. I would like to say we need all doctors to care as much as her, but she is setting a standard that shouldn't be applied to others.

We've been going to Dr. L for 3 years, she is amazing! And her staff is SUPER helpful! I am sad to see so many poor reviews. If you have morals you NEED to go to this warm and welcoming clinic. Dr. L treats all women and men! She truly is the best.

Dr. Luikenaar is an amazing. She patiently talked me through all my options and the risks, explaining the procedures. It enabled me to make an informed decision to have a laparoscopic hysterectomy and oophorectomy. Incredibly flexible, she performed the surgery where it was convenient and economical for me. She visited with me before and immediately after surgery and genuinely cares about her patients. I have recommended her to several friends.

I've been a patient for 2 yrs. Dr Luikenaar and her staff are always professional and friendly. Dr L is highly qualified to treat my health needs. But, more important to me, she genuinely cares and treats me like a person, not a stat or an insurance payment. I don't get rushed through my appointments. Dr Luikenaar isn't just a great doctor. She is also an amazing advocate and ally, working towards educating others in the medical profession about health needs of myself and others like me.

Dr. Luikenaar provides tremendous, and compassionate, professional medical services to all her patients. Both myself for many years, my wife, and to so many other individuals I personally know. She serves an amazing cast of communities, including marginalized and underprivileged communities, who sadly are unwelcome elsewhere. Healthcare is very personal...ask questions...it can be stressful...be a partner with your Doctor and medical staff, and solve your concerns, with kindness and respect.

Dr. Luikenaar inserted my Nexplanon in September 2015. When she asked if I could feel anything after the anesthetic was put in, I said yes, I can still feel it. She said I would be fine and put it in anyways. It hurt. Because I could still feel it. Now a year and a half later, I'm getting it out. It got lost in my arm mixed up with the blood vessels and tendons. I had to get an ultrasound to find where it went. Her office is refusing to help pay for any of it, since I didn't go back to her.

I needed a doctor that was informed, opened and understanding. Dr. Luikenaar is that doctor. No BS but a kind and empathic approach was exactly what I was looking for. For those of us who need an informed and open minded doctor, I highly recommend Dr. Luikenaar to family and friends.

Dr. Luikenaar is fantastic. I would highly recommend her. She provides amazing, comprehensive care for all women. I appreciate her straight forward, no nonsense approach. I am not transgender, but my girlfriend, and several of my friends are. I am so grateful that good, morally strong, inclusive people like her exist.

Dr. Luikenaar had been my doctor for about 4 years now. I am impressed by the personal care and attention she provides every time I visit for an appointment. Dr. Luikenaar has put sound medical science and dedication to patient health above popularity, and she treats all of her patients with warmth and dignity. In my opinion, our health care system would be much better if there were more doctors dedicated to true healing and health like Dr. Luikenaar. I enthusiastically recommend her!

I visited Dr. Luikenaar back in Jan. and had an amazing experience with her. She very much understands the needs of the transgender community and has a deep passion for helping those of us who are a part of the community. I had posted a previous negative review and shouldn't have as I was totally in the wrong at the time.
