My experience with Dr. Lufkin has been very positive, as has been my experience with Compass Oncology in general. Dr. Lufkin is an excellent communicator and has always taken time to answer all my questions without making me feel that I'm taking too much of his time. I appreciate his direct style and willingness to discuss my condition in as much detail as I wish. I feel fortunate to find myself under his care, and would recommend him to others.

I actually saw a PA at my last appointment, but I still recommend Dr Lufkin. He does care about his patients and stays current on their condition, asking me about how things are going and how I am feeling about my current health. He also stays up to date on Cancer therapies is genuinely concerned about my quality of life.

Dr. Lufkin is a great doctor and oncologist. Thorough each appointment, and truly caring not only about the cancer, treatment options and care, but the whole patient and life circumstances. He takes time to listen to concerns and questions, and gives thoughtful and specific answers.

I absolutely love Dr. Lufkin! He is wonderfully kind and compassionate, humble, brilliant, and is incredibly tolerant of my many questions! :) I have never felt rushed in any of my appointments with him, which is a difficult trait to find with the current state of healthcare! I’ve had an inoperable grade 2 astrocytoma for almost 20 years now & I fully trust Dr. Lufkin with my life! His Medical Assistant Jill is also very compassionate, funny & responsive! Highly recommended Dr. Lufkin & his team at Compass Oncology!

Dr. Lufkin and his assistant Amber are without reservation, the best health care providers I have ever known (and there have been many)! THANK YOU Dr. Lufkin for providing the best care possible, going "above and beyond the call of duty". Dr. Lufkin has gone far beyond our expectations (and hopes) treating my cancer, and keeping us informed on the latest research and clinical trials!
