I've been seeing Dr. Karen for over two years. She is always very professional and thorough. She takes time to answer any questions or just time listening to her patients. She always encourages me, with my health issues, and I'm surethis is the case with all of her patients. There have been times, when I've arrived at the office feeling hopeless, and that it is impossible to reach the goal of taking control over my A1C, she always shows you a silver lining on how your case is not hopeless. Dr. Karen is always understanding, and very good at edifying her patients, making them feel comfortable knowing that she is confident and very capable of caring for her patients. Long story short I love her.

I have been impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of every aspect of this office from my very first visit 16 months ago. It is apparent that Dr. Luster is lead by principled examples, because it is reflected in everystaff member. I consider this practice to be the most positive Internal Medicine office I have ever encountered--seriously. I will, without hesitation, refer everyone I know (that's in search for a Primary Care 'Medical' Physician) to this office.” Dr. Luster (and staff) always make me feel comfortable, with a gentle spirit. My last appointment: 01-09-18 The office is very clean and has a peaceful atmosphere.

I had this perception that I will be seeing the doctor that I read the reviews on not the nurse practitioner . I also signed an agreement where I could get my results via voicemail on the answer machine and saidthat Michelle would call me back within 24 to 48 hours I called her on the 13th I just got to go a call today which is the 20th of November 2017.

Today we discussed medical & psychosocial issues currently in my life. Dr Luster is very personable, compassionate, and easy to talk with. She took the time to listen, and shared some personal life experience. This made me feel better and morerelaxed. I know Dr Luster is a very well trained, respected, & knowledgeable medical professional. I worked at Grady Hospital as a LCSW while she worked as an Internal Medicine Attending. The hospital staff and residents always spoke very highly of her, and enjoyed working for her.
