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 said that 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.

This was my first visit with Dr. Luster. She was so friendly and personable. I felt totally comfortable with her. She is not quick to give medications. She was able to suggest natural alternatives. Her staff was wonderful as well. I would recommend her to friends and family in search of a doctor.

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 more relaxed. 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.

Dr. Luster was thorough, attentive, and great with communication. She explained to me each of her thoughts so I fully understood each aspect of the examination. I had originally gone to the appointment with one specific concern in mind, but she addressed my other concerns as well. She took her time and I did not feel rushed whatsoever. It is very rare to feel like a doctor actually listens to your needs and concerns. I typically leave the doctors office feeling like a hypochondriac with made up symptoms, but Dr. Luster did not make me feel that way whatsoever. I actually left feeling like I was on the pathway to finding answers I have been searching for with symptoms occurring for over 6 years. Her office staff was great as well. This is important to me in selecting a doctor's office because these people really play a big role in your experience. The front desk wasn't lovely and the medical assistant/nurse was great as well. I will gladly drive an extra few minutes to see Dr. Luster. Highly recommend.
