    How was your appointment with Dr. Lu?

    Feb 18, 2019
    I began seeing Dr. Lu late in 2018 after enduring recurring skin infections on my face and foot along with 10+ years of battling eczema. Within 5 minutes, Dr. Lu had a comprehensive treatment program that required around-the-clock treatment. I was hesitant at first because it was a lot to do on a daily basis, but everything he has recommended has been extremely helpful. He calls/sends messages after hours to check on how I'm doing and is very confident in all of his decisions.
