What People Say About Dr. William Lu, MD

I had lower back surgery with him in 2004 on L 4&5. I needed 4,5,6 & 7 fixed. He asked about doing them all at once and I agreed so I wouldn't hopefully have to have more surgery down the road. Well he didn't do them all and said I would need it done down the road. Needles to say my husband and myself weren't happy. Told him I would never be back to see him and I haven't and won't. He told me good luck at finding someone else to do it. As of now I just live with the pain.

Dr lu helped my dad with his pinched nerve, it was affecting his mobility on the right side. He performed the surgery at Fl hospital. He cared and was very informative if all the stages before, during and after surgery.

Performed 2 neck surgeries in 2008 on my father in law. He died exactly 1 year after the first surgery. After the 2nd surgery he needed to get a feeding tube. Dr. Lu never owned up to his mistakes. My children will never get to know their loving grandfather. It's been 9 years since he was taken away from us and my family will NEVER FORGET what Dr. Lu did! This man should not be allowed to operate on anyone!

Dr Lu performed 9 surgeries on my cervical spine using surgical materials and procedures that were not approved for use. My neck and left arm and back will forever be in pain and not able to be operated on and fixed.
