He was very thorough in reviewing my left leg pain situation. After testing my ability to use my leg in several positions, he recommended an appointment with a specialist for treatment. I have had him as my primary care physician for many years and enjoyed seeing him again.

The assistant who took my information told me she didn't want to be there, and then lectured me about why I SHOULDN'T be on birth control. I felt very uncomfortable.

Dr. Lugerner recently moved into a new office with MedStar Health. It's a great new facility. The wait was just too long...30 minutes after my appointment time. He is a good listener and thorough.

I am changing doctors. I felt I wasn't listened to at all. I complained of completely plugged ears for weeks, and trying to deal at home. I said my asthma was getting out of control and that I was basically sucking on my inhalers so I could function. Then I asked about a constant drip/sinus issues. I asked him to please clean my ears. I was told no, even though he saw buildup and water. "Put drops in them at home".... yeah, I'd been doing that already for a week to no avail. Then all he focused on was that I used to smoke. No mention of a new plan for my asthma during this terrible spring season. "Change to Zyrtec for your allergies. Maybe you need shots" Less than two weeks later I am in the ER due to an EXTREME asthma attack. I was turning blue and couldn't speak. I was minutes away from being intubated. He is not the Doc for me.

Wait time super super slow, my app was 3:30, met the doctor at 4:30, although the session time for investigation was very short, less than 15 mints!

I made the reservation online and arrived on time at 9:45. The assistant came out and asked for the 9:45, but another person said he had a 9:15. She came out later and somebody else said they had a 9:30. Aside from getting my vital signs, I got no treatment for close to 75 minutes. What good is an automated reservation system if people have to wait so long?

This was an hour of my life that I will never get back. The doctor treated my concerns as a nuisance, and instead of getting a medical opinion, I received an unsolicited lecture. Probably the worst medical experience I have had so far.

The office was kind of a mess. The power went out in the middle of the appointment. The doctors, RNs, and assistants did not seem to get along. I answered many of the same questions multiple times. And the doctor did not ask probing questions about my health. At the end, rather than taking care of my tests in their practice, they sent me up to LabCorp where I waited for quite awhile.

I'm not the type of person that ever writes reviews online but I don't think I've had such a negative experience with a doctor in my life. I tried to tell him why I came and rather than listening, he just consistently cut me off. Then without any diagnosis or test request, told me that he couldn't do anything, I needed a specialist. Then after looking through my medical record he found mention that I once years ago admitted I smoked on rare occasion. Even though I honestly can't tell you the last time I smoked (as I told him) he spent literally the next 10 minutes lecturing me on it then decided to write I had a dependence on my record. He simply doesn't listen to his patients.

I was not examined during my visit! I came in with complaints of severe allergies (or so I think) and he never once examined my ears, nose, mouth, breathing, etc. I have never been to a doctor's office where an examination was not made but a diagnosis was. I was advised to return to my original allergy medication and come back with further complications.

The sore through and fever I had persisted for another week after I visited doctor. I already suffered this for a week before that. I was really looking forward the doctor would give me something. He didn't give me anything except taking one strap throat test. He said there is nothing he can do and I should let it run it course. The sore throat got worse as I have to travel to NYC in the week after.

I have had nothing but excellent care and experience from Dr. Lugerner over the past six years. I am terribly sad to hear he has retired. I will miss him, and wish him well. Thanks for the caring!

Dr. Lugerner has been my primary care physician for a number of years. He is very professional, extremely knowledgeable, and has helped me through one severe health challenge. My only reservation is that he can be a bit abrupt and is not as warm in his manner as some other doctors I've known. Overall, however, I've been satisfied with his care and will continue to see him.

I did not like him. He seemed frustrated by my questions, and he referred me to a lab for a test but I came to discover that this particular lab no longer performed the test. It was a complete waste of time. Also, I wrote the wrong "code" for the lab test on my referral which made scheduling it additionally difficult. In short, he wasn't incredibly nice and he wasn't paying any attention to me. It was a bad experience. I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy.

Once seen the the visit was to the point and satisfactory. However, the wait and lack of communication in the waiting room beforehand was ridiculous. I arrived early, was barely acknowledged, and had to ask twice whether I was going to be seen. From arrival I waited 70 minutes. If there is a delay just let me know. Not courteous or professional.

Came for an annual visit. Checked-in and completed the insurance processing in a few minutes. A minute after I sat down I was called in to see the doctor. Dr. Lugerner was friendly, professional, and willing to discuss in length some of my medical questions or concerns. In and out in about 45 minutes.
