Verified Patient Reviews
This was my first visit with Dr. Luks and it could not have been better. Check on was easy and wait time was brief. I had a thorough exam, x-ray and my discussion with the doctor wasn't rushed at all.
Dr Luks is friendly and explains procedures great. This was the 1st of 3 appointments for treatment.
Dr. Luks and his staff were excellent. He was prompt and very professional. He took the time to assess my injury, explain what was going on and even drew a diagram. I left the office with a clear plan in place for recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Luks.
I have been a patient of Dr. Luks since 1999. He is an excellent surgeon.He always give options surgical and non surgical with good explainations of both.
I couldn't have been happier. His experience and knowledge puts you right at ease knowing for sure he is confident in his treatment plan and that in turn makes me feel good.
Very pleasant informative and right to point!!
Turned my mind and gave me a lot of confidence to my upcoming surgery which I did not want to do!
Excellent physician and very knowledgeable. Would recommend
Very professional very professional and courteous
Wait time was too long. Doctor was good but I wish he would have given me more options.
Dr.Luks is the best!!! I been a patient for years,he takes the time to explain stuff to you,he is very understanding and remembers your past history and is very compassionate about your concerns even if they seem silly.i recommend Dr.Luks to anyone who is looking for a good orthopedic.
Dr. Luks put me at ease taking the time to explain all pertinent facts and treatment options. Didn't feel rushed as he patiently answered questions. His staff was very professional and friendly.
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.
Excellent,Dr luks listened to my symptoms ,asked me many questions and did a good exam before treatment. I feel like he listened and respected my concerns. Highly recommend Dr Luks!
he is one of the most knowledgeable and smart doctors i have ever met. Highly recommend
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!)
He was wonderful patient kind thoughtful thorough.
Excellent front office staff, excellent physician. Issue was diagnosed and addressed - even with xray - in under 90 minutes. Thank you!
Dr. Luks had been recommended by a friend who said that he is not only a good doctor but a nice guy. One of the best appointments I've ever had.
Dr. Luks was extremely kind and patient and listened well to my concerns. He carefully explained his diagnosis and recommended treatment plan. I also found all of the staff and nurses to be pleasant!
He is the best!
Dr. Luks is the best ortho I have ever been to. He is genuinely interested in you, your injury, and your well being!! He listens to what your priorities are and tailors a plan to fit your needs!! I highly recommend!!10 stars!!
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).
Dr. Luks was a pleasure to hear from. He dealt with me in a professional and kind manner and took time to ensure I understood what he was saying about my condition.
Dr. Luks is top notch in our opinion, along with his staff.
Visit went wel. Short wait time in comparison to other doctors that I have seen
Caring, patient, thorough, kind, professional
He is very thorough and to the point.
Honest and straight forward.
Really good at undertaking my injury and why it happened
He was a real pro explained everything I needed to hear.
I liked him, going back in a few weeks.
Quick but exactly what I expected. Everything done professionally. Needed X-Ray and was sent to another office in building. X-Ray taken quickly and then returned to office where image was waiting for doctor to examine.
The staff keeps everything moving quickly & the establishment is technologically savvy. Everything is done by tablet so all employees are given the same information. Dr. Luks has a comfort about him that helps you, as the patient feel at ease.
Dr. Luks, Is the best physician I have ever met. He saved me from having an unnecessary procedure done on my right knee, and has a tailored treatment plan for my left knee. I would not trust my knees to anyone else. He is kind, caring, and has your best interests at heart!!
Staff was great, Dr. Luks was great
I was pleasantly surprised how fast and efficient my visit was. From the moment I walked in until the time my visit was over the staff was excellent. I would reccomend Dr. Luks to friends and family.
Terrific Doctor. Great office. Head and shoulders above all other doctors I've seen.
Very quick, in and out.
Very professional organization. I loved the paperless feature. Wait times were minimal, but more importantly the doctor was not only patient but he took the time to explain what was happening in my body. He understood exactly what I was feeling and what the recommended course of action should be.
He was thorough and I was confident in his diagnosis and treatment.
Dr. Luks was excellent - clear, took all the time needed, explained things thoroughly.
Very informative and positive.
Dr. Luks speaks to you in language you can understand while demonstrating your test results on a large screen monitor. This made it very clear as to what the problem was. His recommended treatment was also clear and concise. I highly recommend him!
Professional and personable, with clear explanations and a genuinely concerned manner.
Very professional. Explained everything to me. Gave me options.
Dr. Luks was highly recommended to me and I can certainly see why. This experience, booking through ZocDoc, was the smoothest and only enhanced how pleased I was with the physician.
very professional..all the staff. and looking forward to any additioal treatment
Extremely knowledgeable explained everything in language I could understand.
Dr. Luks is a great doctor. Very professional and knowledgeable, yet speaks to the patient in a way that they can understand. He listens to any and all questions that the patient has, and responds to all of them. He helps the patient make an informed decision about their treatment options. Never any pressure to do one option or another, like other doctors I have visited. I highly recommend Dr. Luks for any orthopedic needs.
I scheduled my appointment and filled out the registration on line so my xray request was ready when I arrived. I did not have to wait long for the xray or to see Dr Luks so there was very little delay. I have seen Dr Luks several times over the past few years and have found him very professional and competent
I had been in pain for three months and seen a bunch of doctors. Dr. Luks properly diagnosed me in three seconds. Unlike other doctors I had seen, he actually touched my limbs and gave me a series of hands-on tests. Wonderful!
My visit was great. Everthing went smoothly and quickly. The staff was friendly and Dr. Luks knows his stuff!
Dr. Luks gave me answers to my knee problems that my previous doctors have ignored. He took one look at my knees and instantly gave my diagnosis. He was patient and answered all my questions. My previous doctor basically told me that I would be in pain the rest of my life and Dr. Luks presented me with new medical options that have been discovered only in the last 5 years. I'm thrilled to have found such a great doctor!
Dr. Luks was clear, concise, and comprehensive with his diagnosis and prescribed treatment. I would recommend him.
He listens to ask you have to say and answers ask your questions. He is thorough and honest, doesn't beat around the Bush. He is very nice..
Very pleased. Answered all our questions. A true gentleman. Very knowledgeable about my situation.
I think the Dr. is knowledgeable but very busy and I felt rushed.
I really was impressed. He was very honest and straight forward.. He answered all my questions to my satisfaction. i am very happy I went to him.
He was great very professional
Very optimistic about my progress and very encouraging about my continued wellness.
great doc. really knows his stuff and he speaks real people fluently. i'd highly recommend him to anybody.
A profoundly knowledgable professional who has developed the capacity to interact with patients with sincerity and acumen. WHat more can you ask for in an orthopedic surgeon? Thank you Dr. Luks.
GREAT. He listened and answered all of my questions. Unlike my last visit with a Dr in NYC.
I had an other doctor repair my ACL have been having some problems with my knee so I consulted him for a 2nd opinion after he was recommended by another one of my doctors. Unlike some of the other doctors he actually listened and thought about my complaint. I was so impressed with him that I referred my 22 year old son to him to have his ACL repaired
He is the best. A miracle worker. I can walk forever since my knee replacement.
Dr. Luks was excellent, but the front reception staff needs some improvement. Maybe some smiles and greetings would help.
Very confident and made me understand my issues in regards to my shoulder problems.
Dr.luks is a very wonderful person and very very knowledgeable... I loved the whole experience and I highly recommended him..
Great professional. Well mannered and formal. Made me feel comfortable with my visit 100%. Highly recommended!
He's excellent (which I already knew because he repaired my daughter's ACL/MCL tear a few years ago). He's very knowledgeable and his office staff is very professional.
I had acl replacement done by another doctor and my knee was still swollen several months latter so I want to Dr Luks for a second opinion after he was recommended by my pain specialist. I was extremely impressed. My son tore his ACL recently so we made an appointment to see Dr Luks. We felt our concerns were answered and he was extremely competent. My son is a college student and we were concerned that he would be unable to return to school if we did the surgery during winter break. He told us that waiting was no problem and to do the surgery when he finishes in the spring. I can see why he has such a good reputation
Extremely professional and knowledgeable. He seemed as as happy as I was that I did not require surgery.
Pretty smooth process - no lengthy wait.
Impressive. He's a delightful guy who shows receptivity, gentleness and serious interest in creating a connection with the concerns at hand.
Absolute pleasure is all i can say. Dr Luks was attentive and treated me like a person and not a number. Did not feel rushed at all. I HIGHLY recommend him.
Very professional, knowledgeable, inspired great confidence.
Dr Luks is ac highly professional and compassionate physician. I have gone to him for several arthroscopic procedures that were highly successful. Lobby of the practice is always crammed but wait times are amazingly short. In house X-Ray and MRI down the hall also minimize wait times. Dr Luks while highly efficient always makes time to discuss your issue and make sure you understand your condition and treatment options as well as expected outcome. I recommend him without reservation--5 of 5.
He cares about his patients well being.
I thought my visit went very well. Dr. Luks explained what might be the problem with my knee and also drew me a sketch. I was very happy with my visit.
He is the very best! Gave an accurate diagnosis right away, Wonderfully knowledgeable and has an excellent bedside manner to boot. No wonder he has been voted one of Westchester's best over and over again!
It was an excellent visit, and I highly recommend Dr. Luks. He was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He's very professional. He gave us all the time we needed and made sure we were comfortable with the treatment plan. I'd definitely see him again. We were seen quickly and the office staff are very professional as well.
He is a resourceful, caring, professional!
Very informative, very reassuring.
Competent and efficient
Appreciated his honesty and accurate assessment of my medical problem. When I called back after getting home, he actually came to the phone and answered additional questions.
Honest doctor!!! Goes above and beyond with research!! A refreshing site to seeeeeee!
Efficent support staff, very nice physical set up in the office. Dr Luks is top notch medically-very direct, honest and always thinking of his patient's best interest
Dr Luks was professional And personable. He is both sympathetic and knowledgeable. Highly recommended. Richard S.
Very reassuring to have a physician who you can communicate with and who listens. He knows the knee, and exchanges information with the person attached to it.
Dr. Luks managed to diagnose a problem I have been having for years in a matter of 10 minutes. I have seen many doctors for the same problem only to be told I needed this shot or that surgery. Dr. Luks made me feel comfortable and treated me with respect. He spoke to me like a person in need, a person with pain, and a person he intended to make well again. I have already recommended several people to his office, and will continue to do so. Thank you Dr. Luks.
Dr Luks was pleasant and friendly. He put me at ease right away and explained everything. I agreed with his suggestion regarding treatment and we got started immediately. The office staff was helpful and efficient. I am very happy with the way it worked out, being able to make the appointment through ZocDoc. Jean Cates
Dr. Luks knows his stuff. Unlike most doctors that want to treat the symptoms (take a pain killer, advil, etc.) he investigates the root of the problem and then suggests the right treatment method.
This is the most helpful staff I have met in almost 8 years of living in New York.. Dr. Luks was courteous, in less than a minute found the exact location of the injury and knew exactly what was wrong.. what a relief! He offered his email to communicate till our next appointment. This should be the norm, yet he is the only doctor who seemed comfortable enough to offer it.
Dr. Luks demonstrates compassion for my son's needs and always works hard to provide a solution.
He is great and gives you advice, leaves you with options and he doesn't force surgery on to you like other doctors. He speaks the truth.
There aren't many doctors left out there who remain in this profession because of the satisfaction they receive from making a difference in the healing process. I'm not sure how he does it, just glad that he has been that way for years. I refer everyone I know to him. It's the nicest thing I can do for anyone
After a thorough examination of my shoulder, Dr. Luks gave me a detailed explanation as to what was causing my discomfort. The prescribed treatment, which did not include surgery, provided me with immediate relief from the long term pain that I had been experiencing. I also received a follow up call a short time later to see how things were progressing. I highly recommend Dr. Luks.
Very personable he explained everything and spoke in terms I could understand.
Great bedside manner and very patient explaining what was wrong with my knee. Also great at providing options for treatment. Would like a little more context on pros and cons of treatment options (I think he was worried about being perceived as advocating for a particular treatment).
VERY PATIENT FRIENDLY...Explains the medical part where everbody can understand even if he has to draw you a picture.
I left with the level of confidence that I feel is so important when meeting a new physician
Doctor Luks has a wonderful bedside manner. He is apparently a great surgeon as well, having repaired my distal biceps tendon flawlessly. The office staff is courteous and professional.
Dr. Luks' approach to a diagnosis makes me feel like a partner in the process of my own medical care. As a patient of his for 10+ years, I highly recommend him.
it was a pleasure going to his office everyone was so kind and friendly
