    I have seen Dr. Lum a number of times this past year for a variety of issues at his Urgent Care Clinic. Dr. Lum always listens to my concerns then suggests treatment options to me. Most recently, I was having back pain that my excellent chiropractor wasn't able to alleviate. He suggested that I contact my PCP to discuss an ultrasound to rule out gall stones or gall bladder issues. My PCP dismissed my concerns. I went to Dr. Lum for a 2nd option and he scheduled the ultrasound. He truly cares.
