Terrible experience... do not recommend whatsoever. I regret spending money at his office. Waited over an hour even though I did all paperwork online. Initially had appointment at 1:30, was called and asked if I could postpone until 3:30 because Dr. wanted to go to lunch. Didn't see him until 5 PM. I don't think he spent more than 3 minutes with me. He asked what I was there for, gave me about 20 seconds to try to explain until he began talking over me and wouldn't stop talking quickly, using only medical vocabulary and telling me what it could "possibly be". Looked at my skin and symptoms for maybe 10 seconds and didn't even take the time to see all of it. Gave me a multitude of possibilities of what it could be, asked if I had a fever, I said I don't know, and he rudely said, "well do you feel hot?" without even bothering to take my temperature?! Immediately prescribed me a multitude of medications, had me take "his" shot that he didn't explain me what was for, and left without even asking if I had any additional questions. So I have no idea what I have, what to do... I just have more pills to put inside me... TERRIBLE.

Although the wait was a bit long (he was running behind and I was informed of this when I checked in, so no big deal) it was well worth it. Dr. Luxenberg was fabulous. He is very knowledgeable and it shows. He is personable, friendly, and put me at ease. I cannot recommend him highly enough. I will continue to use him and recommend him to all my friends and family.

I HATE making an appointment, then being forced to wait for OVER an hour! I originally made my appointment for 6:00pm, because I would not have to leave work early to get there. I was called by the office the day of my appointment and was told that they didn't have a 6:00pm, and could I come in any time between 5:00-5:30pm becasue they actually close at 6:00pm. I agreed and left work early. I got there at 5:15pm and did not see the doctor until AFTER 6:15pm. VERY Disappointing. I was just about to give up and leave when the nurse called my name.

I'll be honest, I almost walked out. I was so frustrated about the wait time. I had an 11am appointment and being that I was a new patient I arrived at 10:50am. I filled out the paperwork and then waited. And waited. At noon I was called in and sat in another room for 10 more minutes. I had to call my next appointment (12:30pm) and explain that I was going to be late. It was only Dr. Luxenberg that saved it. He was great. Very pleasant and made me feel comfortable immediately. Even though he was clearly running behind, he did not make me feel rushed or try and get through my appointment fast. I will continue to see him and hope that this delay was just a one time occurrence.

You could tell the doctor was rushed. He was nice but just wanted to get it done quickly so he didnt pay as much attention. Waited almost 2 hours, spent 15 minutes with the doctor at the most. I wouldnt come back, he didnt seem like he truly cared.

Dr, Luxenberg was very clear in his instructions, but the wait time was much to be desired. The staff did ultimately inform me to call before I leave home for my next appt & they'll let me know how they're running for the day - THAT was helpful for the next time!

I am an active age 75. For a decade I have had to get recurring pre-cancerous Actinia Keratosis spots frozen off or cut off, mainly on top of my head. Dr. Zuckerberg is A++ in his smooth and painless skills doing this, thorough in his examination focus, highly attentive to a patient's inputs, and has a friendly and outgoing personality as well. Highly recommended. Office and exam rooms at their main Los Alamitos location are plain and aging, but high fashion adds nothing to medical care, does it? The staff is unusually friendly and helpful, not the usual surly medical fare.

I came in for a skin checkup concerning acne. First of all my appointment was at 5pm, I didn't get to see the doctor until 6:50pm. That's ridiculous and all I was told is that "Sorry it's busy around this time, try earlier or later next time." Thanks but I'll be going elsewhere from now on. Got my checkup as I requested, basically just threw prescriptions at me, and talked so fast I didn't get a word in otherwise. Next thing I knew he had me remove my shirt, lay down on the table and before I could know what was going on he was burning freckled off my body without asking or consulting me about why he thought that was appropriate. Now I have three scars on my body that are highly visible where the freckles use to be, and a medical bill that is outrageous from getting something done that was not covered. Dr. Matthew Luxenberg is a overzealous trigger happy dermatologist who barely cared if I was even there or not. If you want extra scars and medicine thrown at you without actually discussing causes of your issues then I would recommend him.

This was the worst visit to any medical facility i have ever been. The wait was understandable it was busy and i showed up early. The treatment was not understandable. Rushed and unexplained I was uncomfortable the entire time. Even after letting Dr. Luxenberg know that i had never received his type of treatment before. My visit was for a genital wart.

The doctor is very nice. He was in and out quick. I would go back to him, as he made me feel comfortable. I did wait a good 45 minutes before I saw the doctor though but I also understand most offices get backed up. I would also suggest the girls behind the counter be mindful of their conversations or lower their voices.
