Terrific. Dr. Lu was great, really informative. I have never had an eye appointment like this, ever. He was truly a medical professional and discussed my overall body health, not just my eye health. I learned so much in this one hour, more than I had ever learned in all of my other eye appointments, combined, and I am so not kidding, he was THAT good. His assistant, Jessie, was equally magnificent. Her professionalism, her obvious interest in taking care of the patient, and her ability to work with Dr. Lu, to efficiently process information to come up with the best diagnosis and course of action for me as the patient, was something that I truly appreciated.

I was so nervous because I never had insurance until now, so I've only gone to Walmart and what not, quick in-and-out visits. The staff and Dr. Lu were SO friendly and took their time. There was a lot of laughing and conversation and I really felt taken care of today. I'm very happy to say I have a regular eye doctor now and I'm looking forward to my next visit!

This was my first visit to Dr. Lu office and everything went perfect! All my questions were answered (what insurance would cover, what I would have to pay out of pocket if need be.) There was no pressure into buying anything if it wasn't covered by insurance. All the ladies helping were so sweet and kind. I was called back on time and nothing was rushed. Dr. Lu is great! He explained everything in detail and made sure I understood. So happy to have found my new eye doctor.

The doctor was very professional but also defensive. He is from South America which is fine with me however it creates some difficulty understanding him due to the pronounced accent. I was not happy with how he went about trying to explain the differences in disease vs syndrome, he set me up which created serious concerns that he didn't understand what disease I was fighting. I almost walked out until they told me he did know. He has a huge ego, told me he understood things better than any of my doctors. Unsure if I will return.

The facility is amazing. Looks great. The support staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and make you feel relaxed and welcome. Dr. Lu knows his "stuff." The equipment is very high tech and he took pictures of my eye to show me where the problem was. This was a problem I have had for a while and Dr. Lu was the only one who got it right. I highly recommend him and his facility.

I am amazed by the wealth of information Dr. Lu has shared with me during my eye exam. I have never encountered a ophthalmologist that has cared as much as Dr. Lu did for me. He has helped me discover new information about my eyes that I am not previously aware of, or was told by my other ophthalmologist and optometrists that I have seen in the past. The office is equipped with cutting edge equipment, and the staff are friendly.

Dr. Lu was awesome. He's a more old school doctor (albeit with high tech equipment), but you can't go wrong with experience and he definitely knew his stuff. And he actually talked To me and not At me, which is rare in the medical world. Would definitely recommend.
