Dr. Luu and his staff We're extremely thorough. He spent the time with me, necessary to make me feel at ease, regarding knee replacement and explained all aspects of it. And basically stated, you know, it's my decision, to do what I need to do, and he made me feel comfortable, about making my decision.

If only one time you little thing when they're going to reset the bone in a body parts for you broken it possibly using twilight sedation versus the numbing to make it less painful, especially if this is the first time you've ever broken a bone, I was scared to death, but they did make it easier but it was still extremely painful and I'm still having a lot of pain, but I know that's normal because of bones are broken it was a compound fracture so I really did a number on it but other than that, everything was fantastic, the staff was perfect very polite, very kind, very courteous and Dr. Luu was absolutely wonderful hurts and everything. I had to say and he took the time to answer all my questions

From the moment. I met Dr. Luu concerning a hip replacement. He has been the utmost forward speaking honest. And I could not ask for a better physician who paid attention, not only to his job, but to me as the individual, and as the patient, I would highly recommend Dr. Luu, to a complete stranger let alone family.

Very kind professional service knowledgeable staff and a review of my hips areas on xrays before hip replacement surgeries
November 15, 2021
This is a comment more in general doctor's, not just spoke to Luu that I recently saw. It feels like PIH is rushing their doctors to get through more, and more appointments on a daily basis versus hiring more doctors, and having each doctor spend more time with each patient. That is my comment. Thank you.

Doctor. Luu is extraordinaire, compassionate with his patients. He is patient with us when I go in for my post. Op. He listens to me answers. Any questions looks me right now. He's got a great sense of humor. I thoroughly, would recommend him to anyone. And I think the one thing that made the difference with my decision to do the hip replacement was he said he will not die if you don't have it done, but you'll get your quality of life back, and he was right, and I do have it back and I am very, very grateful.
October 21, 2021
I think Dr. Andrew Luu is an excellent orthopedic doctor. He took time with me in a efficient manner and I just wish that the doctors who come together and find out what my pain is here cuz it's just baffling to me, but he's a great doctor. Thank you so much for your time, (INAUDIBLE) amen.
