Yes, the doctor said he was going to send a prescription to my pharmacy, which is (name removed) for meloxicam. And up to now it hasn't been received. I've been trying to call the office and no one answers or returns my call. You can call me back at (PHI removed). The pharmacy has been waiting for the prescription refill. Okay. Thank you.

This is my I was up there on the 19th. I waited 35 minutes for him to come in there when he came in, he must have been 5 minutes, he told me to get a prescription. I didn't get it and I called the next day and left a message and they said to be sure I put the right button so I'd be sure to get a new call back, and I did, and they said, okay, someone to call you and I have not heard from them yet so I think this place needs to have something done with it and I thought the doctor didn't spend enough time with me and explain it or help me understand what's wrong with my arm.I'm very unhappy and I'm not recommended him for anything in fact, I'm going to have to go to another doctor for a second opinion. That's it. Bye.

From the first person I saw to the last person I saw (Dr. Luu) was friendly yet professional. I was not kept waiting. I saw the X-ray Technician within minutes of my arrival. I was taken to my room, answered a few questions by the nurse and saw Dr. Luu within minutes. Dr. Luu explained everything to me in great detail that left me with no questions to ask. I never felt rushed and completely understood my problems. Thank you Dr. Luu and staff.

Dr Luu was so patient and caring. I was very nervous about getting a cortisone shot and he made it easy and virtually painless.

I actually want to take a moment to let Dr. Luu and the staff know that I'm very appreciated for him services. I drove an hour and 45 minutes away to come and see him and he will remain my doctor or as long as I need to have him and I will definitely recommend him. He's great.

Thank you. God bless you.
March 24, 2022
Dr. Luu was wonderful in every way and we're so grateful to have him to be the doctor for the hip replacement we just wish he had sat down to talk with us rather than stay standing it seemed to give the message he was in a hurry the nurse who called us from the waiting room was extremely rude and current and unfriendly but everyone else was extraordinarily friendly and welcoming just not that nurse who called us from the waiting room and pointed down the hall and pointed to the room to go in very unfriendly nothing at all in the way welcoming us or even saying hello
March 21, 2022
all very friendly
March 21, 2022
Very friendly , knowledgeable and took the time to answer all of our questions .
March 17, 2022
Dr. Luu is a very good doctor. He takes his time with me. Explains exactly what's going on with my shoulders and where I stand with any type of surgery. I was very pleased with his evaluation. As far as surgery is concerned, I'm waiting and debating whether or not I should have surgery. Until then I'm good, and I'm going to just rely on the medication that has been given to me and I appreciate him very much. Thank you.

The Lady in the admitting counter for online registration was very efficient and kind and helpful. I forgot to ask her name. The assistant staff was efficient. Dr. Luu was very courteous and kind and knowledgeable and friendly and considerate for my case and self decision and not imposing his knowledge. I give him a 5 STAR rating.
March 01, 2022
Great experience, great communication. No long wait time. Took 5 minutes to be called in after filling out online questionnaire.
February 24, 2022
When scheduling the appointment, it should be explained to you that each orthopedic at the office specializes in different areas. Dr. Luu specializes in joints of the knees and hips when I needed a hand specialist.
February 22, 2022
I feel fortunate to have such good orthopedic care from Dr Luu. Last summer he did a hip replacement surgery for my husband who recovered wit no problems. I know my frozen shoulder will be remedied in due time.
February 17, 2022
The doctor was very attentive to my issue and ordered more tests to find out what my problem is.
February 15, 2022
Yeah, hi. I made a mistake on the first question. I pressed 1 because I wasn't sure (INAUDIBLE). The first question supposed to be 3, not 1. I'm so sorry, I just made it in a mistake and confused. Okay, I because someone else was talking to me at the same time. He was great. Everything was great. I was pretty satisfied. Thank you very much.
February 11, 2022
Hi, this is, I change insurances, this is the first time I have PIH and everybody was very very helpful and very respectful. And I can't say anything better than that, because from the person that I walked in and checked into to the doctor was fantastic. I really appreciate that.

February 07, 2022
Nothing. Just great service which II much appreciatedd.
February 04, 2022
Unfortunately due to scheduling issues I had to wait 10 days until I could have my broken Vix shoulder surgery. This was a very difficult and painful period.
February 03, 2022
Dr. Luu really listened to my problem and explained how he would find what is causing my pain. I left the office with a positive attitude about Dr. Luu's commitment to helping me.
February 01, 2022
Dr. Luu, is a my choice, by my choice. I chose him because I trust him out with anything that I had to do with my health, and he's the one of the best surgeons. I checked (INAUDIBLE) the best surgeons, especially for hip that you could possibly find and his staff is always on top of it, and he does the best you can to schedule me with quickly as I can get in and I have a very severe conditions and I have no problem believing that he's going to solve every problem I have and get me back on my feet again. Thank you.
February 01, 2022
I definitely think the staff at the office including the doctor were great. The only complaint I had was actually getting a hold of someone. I must have called for 2 hours, probably about 8 different times and it took 2 hours to finally speak to someone. So the phones part, making the actual appointment, was a nightmare, everything else after that was excellent.
January 28, 2022
The experience was very good, in all respects, except for one thing. The check in with the electronic questions, the stuff I had to put into a machine, is very difficult for me because I have poor eyesight. However, forgetting that, I was seen promptly, Dr. Luu is very pleasant, very charming, and extremely knowledgeable. I liked him very much. He explained everything to me, answered all my questions, and I'm very positive about going ahead with the operation. Couldn't say...I couldn't say anything more than it's excellent. Everything was excellent. I'm extremely impressed with the whole operation, and I like (INAUDIBLE) a lot. Excellent.
January 28, 2022
Dr. Luu is compassionate and practices with the philosophy of what is best for the patient. I am about to go on an extended medical journey with him and I have complete faith in his abilities.
January 28, 2022
Dr. Luu is wonderful/caring/knowledgeable and is a skilled orthopedic surgeon. I would highly recommend him.
January 27, 2022
Dr Andrew Luu was great! Also the nurses!
January 25, 2022

January 20, 2022
He was definitely attentive to what I have to say, but one of the nurses kind of had a attitude but all in all, It was a good appointment. Thank you.
January 18, 2022
Excellent since I had the operation I liked the doctor, I liked everything they did to me, everything was excellent. I would recommend it to anyone single family.
January 17, 2022
I felt that he didn't actually review my cases, and my history of my health, Good enough to make decisions, in fact, he just looked at my recent report and you know he went off of that. If you wouldn't looked at my, my my history, you would have known how far I have come with losing my weight Getting my A1C down, which I, I did those things, and those are the main things and he didn't take those into consideration. I just felt like he was just brushing me off.
January 17, 2022

December 14, 2021
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

December 09, 2021
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.

November 16, 2021
DR.LUU WAS VERY POLITEAN PATIENT ALL THE STAFT A VERY NICEAN CARING
November 16, 2021
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.
November 12, 2021
The only thing I did not like about my visit was I had to pay for parking ??
November 12, 2021

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.
