Friendly staff! Dr lukenda made us feel very comfortable ! Everyone was so nice to my son as well !
First Visit. No issues being seen by the doctor. I filled out my information online ahead of time. Doctor had good bedside manner and didn't rush me at all.
VERY HAPPY WITH THE CHANGE IN PHYSICIAN - VERY PROFESSIONAL WITH A FRIENDLY COMMUNICATION TO THE PATIENT
Dr. Lukenda is very thorough and hits all the body systems to make sure nothing is missed. He is very knowledgeable, personable and actually listens to all concerns. Treats the patient as a whole. As a healthcare professional myself, I know this is top notch, high quality care. He will be my primary care doctor moving forward. His staff are kind people and the facility is very clean. Recommend!
Again the wait times are the problem and filling out forms does not justify the 1 hour 30 minute wait time when I already filled out the majority of the forms on ZocDoc.
We really like Dr. Lukenda because he is very thorough, we like the staff, but this is the 3rd time seeing this Dr. and each time we waited 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 35 minutes. COME ON!!!! I even call ahead to ask how the Dr. is handling the appointment times and of course they lie and say he's on time. This is not ok if you have to get back to work or have another appointment that day. I don't care if I am a new patient! It took me 10 minutes to fill out the papers and I arrived 30 minutes each time!!!! Also, the office refuses to print out the forms I already filled out on ZocDoc for the appointment weeks ahead of time. They still make me rewrite all the information I already sent to Dr. Lukenda's office through ZocDoc and can't understand that I don't want to rewrite all the standard information. I know I still have to fill out my medical history. I get it, but save time and print the paper work that they say is the reason I am waiting an hour!! This nonsense and the wait time is unacceptable and I might switch to another Dr. because of this. It is absolutely ridiculous. Do not book patients every 15 minutes and spend 45 minutes getting to each patient. Maybe book patients at least 30 minutes apart. Plan to be there for 2 hours if you are getting blood work after seeing the Doctor.
Great, personable, friendly, knowledgeable Dr. that is always busy, and has a long wait time due to his high demand! Great Dr.!
Very professional and compassionate doctor. Is interested in learning more about you to make sure he is treating you properly and efficiently.
He was a great doctor. Very attentive. Did not feel rushed at all. Explained things clearly and thoroughly.
Every single person that I came into contact with at this office was exceptional! The office staff and the Dr were all kind, professional and efficient. Dr. Lukenda spent time getting to know me, asking many questions about my health and well being. This was my first visit and I will definitely be back. I will be recommending Dr. Lukenda to my family and friends.
Great! Took the time to listen :)
The office staff is friendly. Dr. Lukenda is very personable, explains everything clearly and takes his time. I highly recommend him!
Will surely return when needed.
Since my doctor of over 15 years retired, it's been hard to find a new practice that meets my criteria - pleasant staff, convenient location, draws blood during the appointment. I found all this and more at Dr. Lukenda's practice. Looks like I found my new doctor!
This was my first visit with the Doctor. The location of the office was easy to find with ample parking. The office was extremely clean. The office staff was amazing and super friendly. They were easy to speak to and eager to answer any questions I had. The Dr. had perfect bed side manner. Also, easy to speak to and very knowledgable. He seemed to care about me as a person and an individual and took time to answer any and all questions I had. I would very highly recommend this office to anyone.
Awesome! Great professional!
Doctor and staff were all very nice. Doctor is smart and personable; engaged and unhurried. Highly recommended.
One of the best doctors, but will do what's best for you even if you do not like it. He is young, personable, friendly and professional. I have been going to him for over a year now and will continue. He is a hard worker but is still personal unlike some doctors who try to focus on the revenue rather than the patient
I was very comfortable and felt he was thorough
Dr. Lukenda is simply a fantastic doctor who truly cares for his patients. Many people I know have him as their primary doctor. You will not be disappointed!
I work in healthcare so I would consider myself a medical office snob. Overall, the office was clean, staff friendly & knowledgeable and Dr. Lukenda was OUTSTANDING. I will recommend him to all my friends and family. Overjoyed and Happy!!!!
Very Personable. Easy to talk to. Great Doctor!
Never heard back from the office regarding my blood work results.
He is a young, passionate physician who I am happy I contacted to be my new primary doctor. I only went for an annual physical but he was very good. Luckily, my health is excellent, but we all need checkups and a great doctor . I would absolutely recommend him based on my experience.
He was very patient and thorough. His staff is friendly and the office was clean.
Love Dr. Lukenda!! He is extremely compassionate and understanding. He is straight forward and will always get back to you if you have questions or concerns. The Staff is excellent as well, such a relief to have all these wonderful people on your side and looking out for your health!
Excellent bedside manner! Professional, friendly staff!
Excellent doctor. Easy to talk to, good listener. Responsive, pleasant staff.
everyone in the office very professional, helpful and friendly
The doctor and staff were very professional and personable. I will definitely come back.
Dr Lukenda was very professonal with a great bedside manner. My mom was the one who saw the doctor she is 89 years old. He was caring to the issue that she was having. I would recommend him to anyone who asks me about him. In fact I'm going to use him as my primary doctor. Nick
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the office. I am definitely going to keep him as my Primary Doctor moving forward.
My first visit went very well. Dr. Lukenda is a young energetic guy with a great bedside manner. The office is very well staffed and modern. This is the first doctor's office I've visited that seemed as modern as you would expect medical treatment to be. They requested my medical history from my previous PCP and took my picture for their electronic records. They also have an online portal to access basic needs. So far, so good!
Very informative doctor . Very concerned and genuinely interested in your health concerns . I've honestly never encountered just a pleasant understanding health care provider . Definitely recommending him to anyone I know .
Very good first appointment. Helped with questions I had and did not leave me dry.
Dr. Lukenda answered all of my questions and was personal and attentive.
Easy to talk to, great bed side manner.
He was professional took the time to listen to you. Was busy typing your info on a laptop during your exam. I would recommend him to my friends and family.
First time visit to the office. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Waited about ten minutes after filling out a few forms. The doctor very receptive to my problem. Took time to listen and answer all of my questions.....
Amazing doctor and staff
Dr. Lukenda and his office were fantastic! They already had my file ready when I walked in and I was actually seen a few minutes early! I will definitely be going back!
It was very good, the staff very nice and pleasant.
Fabulous, compassionate doctor. Really cares about your issues and listens. I would highly recommend him.
Excellent! The doctor was very nice and professional. Explain things very clearly and diagnosed my disease quickly and accurately (I've seen 3 different doctors before and none of them was as good).
I Would definetly go back to him! Very good doctor!
Very nice guy. Is quick to think, very open to hearing what problems you may have. Wants to help and is able to. Willing to do anything right for his patient. I've seen him a few times and I haven't been left wanting.
Very good doctor. Very professional and takes the time to actual treat your medical condition.
Was in the lookout for a great Primary Care physician and he was wonderful! Listened to my concerns and got blood results back within a day. Love his online portal so you can email him and he gets back instantly with inquiries. Highly recommend!
Doctor : Actual doctor was great. He was very friendly and compassionate. He showed more interest in my issues than other doctors in the past. Support Staff : His support staff is a different story. They had fairly bad attitude, measured my height wrong (no really), when my temperature was taken, the person just pulled the probe out of my mouth without saying "open". These might sound like little things but I have experience in health care myself and these simple "personable" protocols are there for a reason. However, the doctor was great and I will be seeing him again. Lab Work : His actual office takes biological samples in-house (blood samples, etc). However, I'll insist on going to an external lab instead of letting his support staff do anything to me. Person who took my blood seemed to not want to be there at all, and made no effort to ensure comfort. No side table to rest my arm on. Mind you, I have no problem or anxiety with needles. For a urine sample, I was told to go to the bathroom, then go to another room where I could simply walk in and set the sample down, and leave. What actually happened is that I made the sample, went to the room, where the nurse / support staff was consulting with a patient. I sure wouldn't like it if I was consulting with a nurse and a stranger just popped into the room to drop off a sample. Once again .... protocols. C'mon guys. Wait Time : Also, from my actual appointment time to actually seeing the doctor : 45 minutes. That's 45 minutes past the appointment time. And that was after filling out the "digital forms" the night before that were supposed to save time. Great doctor. Office is run a little "loose".
Office was a little warm which I'm using as the reason the top number of my blood pressure was a little high (only kidding). Good experience as usual. Wait time was a little long, but I made the appointment 2 hours before coming in so I can't be that critical. Thanks!
It was a wonderfully pleasant experience. He is a very patient, thorough person and rather than sticking to form questions and showing me to the door, he continued to ask me if there was anything else I would have liked to discuss with him until I was out of things to discuss (it was my first visit, and I have not had a primary doctor in several years). He was able to respond thoughtfully to all of my own questions and concerns, and his staff is super friendly.
He was great he listened to my problem he did a few tests to see what the problem was and he asked for a follow up to check back with me and my issue
My visit was very good!
There was basically no wait time after I completed filling out the forms needed for new patients. Dr. Lukenda was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to others!
I wish I would have found him sooner. My son and I are very pleased with his professionalism, knowledge and welcoming environment. I have decided to choose him as my family primacy care physician. His response time to x-ray results were immediate.
Very professional and great staff. Kind and caring demeanor. Would recommend for sure!
he was fantastic took his time and really listened to you
This was my first visit to Dr. Lukenda. He was very informative, took his time, and made me feel comfortable. Not condescending! Would highly recommend this doctor to anyone looking for a new PMD.
Excellent and very informative.
Very good experience...the Doctor did not rush and answered all of my questions. He was thorough in his approach and treatment...and took the time to consider everything I told him and responded with professionalism.
Great first experience, doctor was very thorough.
Great doctor and staff, I recommend Dr. Lukenda.
Great appointment. I'm not sure if someone called out, but it seemed like there should be someone else at the front desk. Friendly staff...from the doctor to the front desk, everyone was very pleasant. I am very happy that I found a doctor in the area who is this good!
overall was a good experience, the staff as well as Dr. Lukenda was nice, good attitudes that make you comfortable to continue to use his service.
For someone who doesn't really like Doctors. I must say I look forward to going to my appointments. His staff from the assistant, to the front office, to the lab tech that takes your blood. All of them are 1st Class! Oh... And the Dr. Is not bad either. LOL
Overall it was a good experience. He was attentive, caring & concerned. The staff was also very professional & courteous. The office was immaculate, as one would expect a doctors office to be. I definitely recommend Dr. Lukenda.
Patient and understanding. Not judgemental or condecending.
Good, friendly young guy. I didn't have any issues with during my annual physical, so it was a rather quick and painless visit. He has a great small clinic with a friendly staff. I will certainly be going back!
I recently moved to the area and needed a new doctor. I was really glad I chose Dr. Lukenda and would highly recommend him to anyone. He is great!
Dr. Lukenda and his staff were professional, attentive, and efficient. Everything ran on time. The doctor was polite and attentive but also straightforward. Bloodwork was taken on-site and results came back the next day. Highly recommended.
He's a great guy, very friendly and understanding.
I recently moved to New Jersey from Arizona and needed a good GP. Dr Lukenda's very thorough, asked the right questions, and was interested in getting a feel for who I am. Excellent doctor, same day appointment, front and back office staff that made the whole experience warm and inviting. Not words I would normally use to describe a doctor visit. But its true. Nothing like the confidence of knowing you've made the right decision on the first go around. It didn't feel like embarking on a new adventure, it felt like coming home to old friends. The whole process was made so much faster and efficient because of this website. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr Lukenda AND this website to anyone. Probably shall, too. Now, to find a dentist...
He was awesome, very informative, very knowledgeable and a great bed side manner. I was very pleased with the overall service at his office.
