Dr. Lu recommended combining CT scans he had ordered with CT scan, my pulmonary doctor had recommended. Unfortunately, Swedish CT scan IMAGES were not made available to my [...] pulmonologist. It did cut down on radiation however.

Dr. Lu, in my opinion, is the Ideal to which all health care providers should aspire. He genuinely and sincerely connects with his patients at a personal level. He listens. He clearly cares. And he is not afraid to speak directly as needed. My confidence in the quality of his care is without question.

I have known Dr. Lu for some time. He seemed bothered that I was not aware of an allergic reaction to an antibiotic given to me by another doctor. Do I agree that he made the right decision- yes. However, I felt there was a lack of empathy regarding the negative impact I would experience from ceasing the antibiotic (Pain from the edema, elevated anxiety, increased heart palpitations, etc.) were ignored. I was so disappointed with the interaction.

I wish you could clone Dr. Lu.; he is outstanding. I would like to have him provide training and/or guidance to all of my Doctors on how to be an expert and have high empathy. He is 11 out of 10; one of a kind great.

Unfortunately I had several health issues I wanted to discuss with Dr. Lu. The 15 minute visit was not LONG enough to discuss all of them. The medical assistant suggested that I make another appointment to follow up about my other health concerns.
