I've been going to Dr. Lu for nearly 10 months and I've only had positive experiences when seeing him. He takes his time and he listens. To me, he's very practical and logical with his care and doesn't try to rush you out the door. I'm glad that I found a d I've never had any issues while I've been under his care and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
