My husband has been going to Dr. Lu for approximately 3 years for his macular degeneration. She was able to get my husband into prequalification for a clinical trial, which he was able to take part in. She never acts rushed, always has a smile on her face, asks how you're doing, and takes all the time necessary to answer any question we've had. Her credentials speak for themselves. You could not ask for a better doctor.

Outstanding! I feel Dr. Lu generally cares for her patients and their well being! She always takes the time to listen, ask about how they are and even asks how their family have been since the last visit. Dr Lu always greets me with a smile and take a moment for small talk, thereby setting my mind at ease. She takes time to explain everything about my health and what tests have been performed, and carefully listen if I have any questions..I consider Dr. Lu an expert in he field.

Great surgeon!

Overall, Dr. Lu doesn't listen to her patients. When she gets a question, she simply responds without actually considering what I'm saying. I can't tell if there is a language or cultural barrier however when one of her colleagues came into the room I had all of my questions answered very easily. I'm not unreasonable, I have a complex eye disorder. I simply want to know what I have and why she is recommending a treatment. She simply doesn't explain anything.
