He was very knowledgeable and honest in my options, he expressed the pros and cons of each option respectively, and offered alternatives if our initial methods were ineffective. No feeling of pushing for additional services or purchasing products, etc. Great experience overall

They were amazing with my 5 year old and the Dr. kept me in the loop with what he was doing and what my child’s needs were.
Will never go anywhere else

Dr. Luis Lu was amazing. The whole staff was amazing. Recently moved to Arizona so finding a great eye doctor was hard. I am so thankful to find this office. Everyone was so nice.
Pleasant and patient, processional and carrying and it shows his knowledge in the field.
They did have an emergency appt that's why running late

This was my first visit to Dr. Lu. The exam was very thorough. Dr Lu explained everything to me. I was grateful, impressed and very happy. The office staff was awesome too! An overall wonderful experience. Thank you!
Dr. Lu is a wonderful and caring doctor. He listens to your questions and concerns. Very highly rated.
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.
Very nice. Very professional. The staff was great
Dr. Lu was very friendly and professional in his approach. I am happy to work with him.
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!
He's awesome! Very personable with great energy!
He was outstanding, spent considerable time with me doing an indepth analysis my situation. Very knowledgeable and willing to spend the time.
This was one of the best doctors I've ever met. He and the other employees were all great. Highly recommended!
Dr. Lu & his staff are excellent! They spend a lot of time with you and are very pleasant. Dr. Lu had several tests and scans performed & thoroughly explained all the results. Switching doctors after moving is always stressful, but I'm quite happy I found Dr. Lu!!
Very nice office with terrific staff. High tech, clean, lots of careful explanations of what's going on and what they're doing. I could tell that everyone is very happy working with Dr. Lu and that he is excited to have them there. They seem to have a good thing going, which made it nice to visit them there.
I waited 45 minutes to be seen. They did apologize and offer me water. But it was still a long wait
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.
I really liked Dr. Lu. He explained everything and the exam was thorough. I would go to Dr. Lu in the future.
One of the best Doctors I have ever visited.
I did not feel rushed at all. He took the time to explain everything and found the cause of my eye problem.
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.
Wonderful experience! Everyone is so nice and very professional. I will recommend to all my friends and family.
My visit was a routine checkup after cataract surgery on my left eye. After he performed a thorough examination, Dr. Lu explained how measured results surpassed his expectations. He also confirmed the medical regimen going forward. I am scheduled to see him again in three months.
Outstanding in every respect! WFE3
Everyone there was personable, friendly and professional! The doctor even sat down and explained everything to me in detail. The assistant was relatable and they were both memorable.
A professional, kind and detailed doctor that shows true concern for my eyes`health.
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.
So thorough, professional, what all Doctors and their staff should be for patients.
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 is an excellent doctor and very knowledgable. He took his time and was very thorough and answered all my questions. I am so glad I went to see him. Don't waste your time going to anyone else.
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.
Dr. Lu and staff were very professional and thorough. They were very knowledgeable and shared insightful information.

Dr Lu was the nicest eye doctor ever! He's very good at what he does and he educates hi patients. I just booked an appointment for my husband
Absolute latest in technology, combined with friendly and caring attitude... I wish I had found Dr. Lu years ago!
I chose to see Dr. Lu because of his excellent reviews but was still surprised by the great overall experience. Dr. Lu is exceptional in every respect and every one, front office and back office, were highly professional.
I was very impressed with the thoroughness of the examination. Pre-examination paperwork was kept to a reasonable minimum. The technology employed was state-of-the-art. Information and explanations were conveyed in an understandable manner, specific diagnostic terms were defined and the data and diagnosis was presented both descriptively and with visual supplementation. The whole experience exceeded my highest expectations.
I Was all set up for eye surgery only to find out later he was out of my network for surgical procedures. I was So disappointed as I trusted his skill and expertise. Will now have to find some in-network. I highly recommend this MD
One of the best doctor's I've ever visited!
Dr. Lu has a magnetic personality and really demonstrated a genuine care to his patient, my 82-year-old father, even providing doctor recommendations in other fields. Thank you!
Dr. Lu put me at ease right away. I am so respectful of his experience and knowledge. Thank you!
Very professional office and staff. The doctor took the time to explain each procedure in detail and his findings to my understanding. The staff even took the time to explain what the machines used measured, what my results were and even how I measured amongst the majority of the population in my age group! Everyone was simply amazing !
I appreciated that Dr. Lu was very thorough, answered all my questions, and met all my medical needs on this visit. His staff was also very professional.
