Surprisingly, I wasn't allergic to anything I thought I was. Even though I haven't gotten to the bottom of my symptoms yet, Dr. Luka left no stone unturned in ruling out allergic causes, and gave me confidence through thorough testing that my symptoms were due to something else.

I loved my visit with Dr. Luka and his staff. Everyone was very friendly. There was no wait time. I was able to have open dialogue with Dr. Luka and he gave me a lot of information that I didn't know about my allergies. I was very impressed!

Excellent consultation for my seasonal allergies. I was seen right on time. I had to bring my three kids with me, so I was pleased that the office is spacious and i had no trouble fitting my stroller in. Dr. Lukawas very friendly. He spent plenty of time with me and came up with a plan to go forward, with contingencies for if the meds don't work as well as I'd like.

I highly recommend Dr Luka and his team! Very professional, knowledgable, and friendly environment. Dr Luka was very thorough in explaining my allergy testing results and treatment options. He listened closely to my concerns and was sureto address each of them. His staff made me feel very comfortable throughout the process. I left feeling confident with the recommended treatments and am excited to hopefully get some allergy relief as a result. (And if not, we have a follow up appointment set in a month to address any necessary tweaks) Choose this office! You won't be disappointed.

Well mannered professional. Practical with his approach. Won't unnecessarily strike fear into your heart for eating broccoli when you have a tree allergy (other doctors have in the past).

I had moved back into the area and was looking for someone to help me get back on track with my asthma and allergy management. He was extremely thorough, asking a lot of questions and clarifying my medical history. He deviseda new treatment plan and got me set up with the medications I needed. In addition, his beside manner is excellent - he is friendly, patient, and explains everything clearly. His receptionist, though I didn't catch her name (sorry!), was great also! She was super helpful in getting me in and out efficiently :)

I love Dr. Luka! He diagnosed me with allergies a year ago, and since then, I have been free of sinus infections and colds thanks to an easy treatment protocol. His assistant, Angela, is very friendly and runs the office well.I have never waited and today, was in and out in no time.

He didn't really listen to my concerns. I wanted an allergy shot and he prescribed pills after I specifically said I don't like taking pills. Either way he was nice but just upset about not getting the shot.

Dr. Luka was extremely insightful and seemed to be sufficidntly educated on the subject matter we were discussing. For the first time in a while, I felt like my drive to a specialist was worth it. Although we did not cometo an immediate conclusion for my prognosis, he did suggest some further testing and routes to take. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking professional help regarding allergy testing and/or treatment.
