Luikenaar just keeps talking. She asked me like 6 times if I had any questions, every time I said no and she would continue to answer questions I didn't ask and already had the answer for. She also said she'd send me an email with a video on how to give myself a shot along with a picture of how much to use, but I never got it. I had to look up a video on YouTube and the pharmacist showed me how much to get.

Fizzgig – Jan 29, 2021
I have to honestly say I am very disappointed with the service I received from the staff and Dr. It started out really well, I have been in contact with Florence who sent over the paperwork I needed to fill out which I sent back on a timely fashion. There is a $100 fee for no-shows or cancellation. I had an appointment for 9:15am online to meet with the Dr. and as a new patient, I was looking forward to this appointment. I called the office at 9:25am to follow up since I haven't heard anything from the Dr. via telehealth. At 9:40am I am checking in with the medical assistant who then asks many questions of which most of them are the same questions on the paperwork they request you submit prior to the appointment, which I don't mind answering. What upset me was, it was now almost 50 minutes from my original appointed time and I haven't heard from anyone on what the status was or given any notification as to why it was so late. I messaged the Dr which she casually replied she had patient

Tonga Sablan – Oct 28, 2020
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.

Claire in Salt Lake City – Aug 23, 2018
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!

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.

Sandy, UT – Jun 30, 2017
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.

Brooke in West Jodan, UT – Jun 30, 2017
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.
