Patient Comments (3)
in Latta, SC |
Initially I did not know what to expect and my first impression of Dr Lu was the fact that he is not only knowledgeable but presents information in a way that does not create false expectations. No actual predictions as to how my case would go but explained scenarios based on steps we would take during the treatment process based on scan results during the treatment process. He clearly explained the risks as well as benefits of my treatment regimen. Totally professional !!!

1. He cares about the patient 2. He is genuine. 3. He is knowledgeable. When you are told you have cancer you need to have a doctor you can trust, and have confidence in.

Dr Lu sits down at each visit and discusses current lab values, disease process and recommended treatment options. I do not mind the visit wait time because I know he will take time with me when it is my turn!He talks personally and is not carrying around a computer!! He is honest about treatments and options but includes me in the decision process. I have been seeing him for awhile and trust him completely!!
