This was the first meeting with Dr. Luk. He was very professional and personable and provided the second opinion I sought.


Very pleased with our Doctor; the above is how we feel.


No negative comments at all.


*Dr. Luk's primary goal was to educate the doctor who did the initial phase of the evaluation rather than ME.


he is the most caring Dr


*Dr. Luk has been excellent in his knowledge of RA & other problems - He has always ans. all many ? with care & knowledge - I have had another rheuma. in the past - of when I was concerned she was not confident in what she was telling me.


Dr. Luk is a great doctor.


Dr. Luk is an excellent provider.


I felt that this doctor could have taken a little more time to explain and answer questions. I was upset by the news that he had told me, and he didn't take that into consideration. I felt like he had made a decision and there was no alternative route to treatment. He did offer to do blood tests, which did confirm what he had said. I took initiative to speak with another doctor about stopping medicine, and my concerns with that. He agreed, and offered suggestions and options. I just felt like the doctor could have been a little more understanding. I am also comparing him to another doctor at Wake, who took time to answer any question and address any concern that I have had over the past couple of years. I expected this same level of treatment and communication from the new doctor, and didn't feel that I received the same level.


Dr Luk discussed my new medical condition thoroughly. Answered all my questions. Very pleased with visit.


This was my first time visit with this doctor and I am very pleased.


Love Dr Luk and his staff. couldn't ask for a better Dr.


In addition, he was very calm and peaceful, which I greatly appreciated.




This was my first appointment The doctor did not seem interested in my condition and I felt that he didn't spend enough time with me.


*Dr. Luk is the best!


I have been to rheumatology prior to this. I felt like Dr. Luk listened to my actual symptoms and came up with a diagnosis that fit. This was not my previous experience.


He did not listen to my concerns and he did not have good bed-side manner at all. I left his office feeling like I had wasted my time and money on this visit. I made a follow up appointment, but I am requesting a different Doctor.




all good


couldn't ask for a rheumatologist


I was very satisfied with my visit,


Dr. Luk and His Assistant Dr. Shak did an excellent job with Me. I look forward to seeing Them both in 3 months !


great experience


My husband sees 9 or 10 doctors due to all of his medical issues. He commented as we left *Dr. Luk's office that Dr. Luk is the best doctor he sees because of his thoroughness and his explanations.
