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!
in N Salt Lake, UT |
If there would be a zero for recommendation I would pick that. I've never been more disgusted with a healthcare provider. She isn't about womens health but transgender! AVOID AT ALL COSTS if you have morals.

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.

I have been suffering PCOS since I was 21. Also being transgender, this put a lot of strain on me. I bled non stop for 7 months one time then a whole year the next. Most doctors wanted to throw BC at me. Dr. Luikenaar not only listened to me, but realized that being trans that I wouldn't want to carry a child. She instantly got me going to have an endometrial ablation and I am doing great now. Her staff is AMAZING and are quick to use proper pronouns. Her and her staff are blessings!
in Kearns, Utah |
Rixt is an amazing doctor but her staff is unprofessional and rude!!!
