Dr. Luu is an exceptional surgeon. He is very knowledgeable in his field. I was so blessed to find such a competent doctor. I had both hips replaced with Dr. Luu and I trust him in my care. What I really loved to hear about my surgery is that he mentioned that he studied my case and had a plan from A to Z. When I heard that I knew I had the best doctor on my side. Great physican. I've already recommended him to many of my family and friends even in the market when people ask me I tell them I have the right doctor for you. :)

Dr. Luu provided excellent care. He was very knowledgeable and explained things in a manner which I could understand them that took care and concern and my element and was very courteous and quick to offer immediate feedback and care. The only issue I have is that appointments or follow up, appointments are not readily available there a week or sometimes a couple of weeks out which had my condition be a little bit more serious. Would have been a concern for me, but other than that I was very impressed with the level of care and attention. I was given by this provider.

We arrived at 10am for the 10:30 appointment, but had to waited till 11am to call in to see doctor. After doctor's visit and we went down to ground floor to the lab for blood test, and again we were waiting for more than 40 minutes at Lobby to get in for registration. It took us more than three hours to report appointment, seeing doctor, making next appointment and take a lab blood test. Don't know where went wrong.
