How likely are you to recommend Dr. Lu?

(Select your rating)
I had Dr. Yi Lu perform an operation or redo of a 30 year old surgery that scarred as they sometimes do. He doesn't talk a lot - he walked in with the MRI report and imaging and his first words were, "They all missed it!" The proceeded to explain what he would do to make my pain go away, the chances it would and the percentage range it would. I interviewed 6 ortho-pods. I went with Dr. Lu. He had a clear goal and I believed he would see that through - and he did. I woke up from surgery with all my Left Leg pain and back pain gone. In the coming days it was down to a 0.05. It was amazing and better than I could have expected. He is a neurosurgeon who specializes in backs. Highly Recommended.
