He was amazing. He has excellent bedside manners. Previous to this doctor, I consulted with another hand specialist who saw me for 45 seconds. I then decided to see what I like calling a "real doctor." There are a lot of doctors out there who should not be called doctors. Dr. Luks was caring and listened to my concerns. Excellent consultation with Dr. Luks! I wish more doctors were like him! I highly recommend him.

I previously received two (2) independent medical opinions - both coming from excellent orthopedic surgeons - before I visited Dr. Luks. In fact, I was was already scheduled for knee replacement surgery! Dr. Luks wanted to know about my lifestyle, my activities, my personal goals and my desired outcomes from treatment. I received a thorough, hands-on exam and we discussed my MRI report, looked over my X-rays, etc. What I appreciate most is his candor and transparency regarding my available treatment options - exactly what I needed and wanted. As a result, I have elected to pursue a more appropriate, non-invasive procedure at this time. My knee replacement will have to wait. (Hopefully for many years to come!)

Incredible to meet with an Orthopedic surgeon whose doesn't immediately suggest surgery. I had a been told previously by another orthopedist that surgery was the only option. Dr Luks walked me through the MRI images of my rotator cuff and explained what was causing the pain, the extent of the damage and a series of options I had prior to/or instead of surgery. He eliminate a number of myths and misconceptions I had about what had caused the problem and how the shoulder worked (something that previous docs had never taken the time to do).
