Ratings & Reviews
How was your appointment with Dr. Lum?
I went to Dr. Lum for a second opinion about a diagnosis for a rare disease. When I went to my appointment, Dr. Lum was very honest about never diagnosing my condition before and only having seen one case of it in his career. He told me he could continue to monitor my symptoms or I could try to go to a research hospital to see a specialist. I really appreciated his candor and I told him I wanted to go to a research hospital. Since then, he and his office have run updated tests to send to the hospital and have helped me get referrals for out-of-network care. Overall, he and his office have been patient, kind, and thorough.
