Patient Comments (19)
New York, NY |
She responded quickly when I asked about starting a new session, and emailed which made communication/scheduling much easier. She has helped me greatly and is an engaged listener with helpful ideas. Highly recommended.
New York, NY |
Dr. Lugo has been very helpful with my anxiety issues, I feel a little better with each session. She is very professional, the office environment is comforting, and she gives me helpful suggestions of things to read on my own. I would recommend her services to a friend in need.
New York, NY |
She's really patient and flexible. I really value her feedback. She really helps connect dots you'd never find yourself.
Brooklyn, NY |
I have sent emails to many doctors who never replied, but Dr. Lugo responds to my emails right away. She's empathic, professional and reliable, and offers a beautiful, warm and peaceful office space. Unlike some doctors, she takes notes, a practice I find encouraging. The first session with Dr. Lugo is generally a thorough client assessment, and in my case, her summarized thoughts were on target. Over time, her counsel has made me more reflective, and improved the quality of my life.
Montclair, NJ |
Dr. Lugo is an amazing physiotherapist, she is very helpful, a great listener and gives tools take and learn.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Lugo is fantastic at her work, she is extremely patient and welcoming. She creates a very open and comfortable space to discuss any topic. Highly recommended.
New York, NY |
She has a busy schedule, but once you are in her schedule she's committed to meeting regularly. I recommend a steady time slot.
in New York, NY |
Lack of professionalism. Double booked multiple times, wasted hours. Would expect a bit more sensitivity in scheduling given the nature of her job.
Astoria, NY |
To put it simply, Dr. Lugo is a great doctor. Not only is she extremely patient and a great listener, but she is also very understanding. She listens to your concerns and addresses the situation with multiple solutions and is always encouraging during the process. You'll make a bad decision if you don't book an appointment with her.
NY, NY |
I'm overall healthier because of my work with Lugo
in BROOKLYN |

East Elmhurst, NY |
Dr. Lugo is very open to listen and gives excellent suggestions as far as direction, she makes you feel com
in Waterbury, CT |
She is an outstanding clinician, with a remarkable intelligence and compassion. I survived a very shattering Life crisis, and it was only through her remarkable talents and skill that I was able to not only find the courage to survive, but the ability to view myself more clearly and envision a path to a much better Life. I saw Dr. Lugo for four years, and now - three years later - am still very grateful for the way my life has flourished in all aspects since. I highly recommend her.
Oakland, CA |
It's always so hard to find a good therapist who you feel connected to, and who listens well. I found Dr. Lugo online, somewhat by accident, and ended up seeing her for about 2 years. I was always so impressed by how attentively she listened to my (boring) problems, and helped me to see patterns and make connections in my behavior that would eventually help me to pull myself out of my low place. I think back on her insights even today, although I've moved away and am doing much better.
in Brooklyn, NY |
I was her patient for a long time about 10 years. She's very patient and consistent and I really appreciate for her help and guidance.
in New York |
She's patient, knowledgable, and tactful in her approach to therapy. I'm a wholly different person as a result of my trusting her to take me through the process.
New York, NY |
Dr Lugo has been very effective in helping me improve my emotional life and to develop my emotional intelligence. Dr Lugo has guided me and helped me uncover my fears and weaknesses and showed ways to identify poor communications patterns with my wife and at work. I have been in a much better position to deal with very stressful situation and rescue my marriage.
Professional, knowledgable, and all around a wonderful person with a good heart helping others in need. She is a gem in every sense of the word and truly an asset to her profession. I am in a much better place in my life with the help and direction of Dr. Lugo.
She is very understanding and patient.
