I know GOD sent me to Dr. Lu for a reason! I had a horrific accident at work that shattered my humerus, and believe me it was far from funny! I was scared, nervous, apprehensive and the last thing I ever wanted was surgery. Dr. Lu was so compassionate, caring, informative, supportive and ALWAYS listened to my thoughts and concerns. I was never rushed and he always legitimately cared for my well being, not just physically but emotionally and mentally as well. He treated me for over 15 months and I wish I could just go and sit and talk with him now! The entire staff was just wonderful as well. They wore smiles every minute! If I could give them all 100 stars I would!!
Dr. Monica is an excellent doctor. I have been to him a few times in the past. He is extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly what my problem was and treated it accordingly and with great results. In addition, his interpersonal skills are great. I felt comfortable and well cared for. I would recommend him highly.
Vincent was my therapist at UOA. I have had quite a lot of physical therapy over the years and Vincent is the best. The exercises were simple, not too many, but they have made a big difference. Most important, I can continue doing them at home. Vincent listens, answers questions, cares and pays attention to each individual. Vincent and Dr. Doumas – what a dynamic duo!
First I would like to thank Dr Michael Lu and his team for being so patient and thoughtful during this operation, especially his calls following up on my well-being. I will also like to thank Raritan Bay Medical Center and the team of nurses, especially Nurse Cruz in the operating area that attended to my every need. Everything went smoothly from parking to registration, lab and Preop/recovery to discharge. I would highly recommend Dr. Lu.
Extremely pleasant. Extremely knowledgeable and very nice. Explains everything so that I could understand. Very professional! Same for the staff. Will definitely use him again.
Over 2 years I’ve seen 4 different doctors and none could help fix my wrist problems and help me get back to gymnastics. Dr. Doumas helped me by taking me through every option possible to avoid surgery first. Unfortunately, my wrist was in pretty bad shape and I ended up getting the surgery done by him. A year later I am finally back to doing gymnastics again and almost back to 100%!
I probably should have sent this thank you sooner. However, as I was doing some major rehabilitation on my son’s wooden garage doors last week, (the very garage roof that I fell from, causing catastrophic damage to the bones in my wrist) It occurred to me that it is quite amazing that I was able to do this sanding, staining and polyurethaning, using my left hand. The very hand that you reconstructed using cadaver bones, rods, screws and mostly your knowledge and incredible talent.
I cannot thank you enough for “fixing” my broken bones in a manner that has caused me minimal lose of movement and use. Although there is some restrictive movement, it is not nearly what I had anticipated. I am left-handed which was a bit of a concern after this injury. Just for a brief update: (even though it is closing in on 4 years!). I am a very limited but enthusiastic guitar player. I am able to play more than 95% of my previous ability. Previous to the injury, I obsessively did push-ups, never missing a day up until Sept. 28, 2016- injury date. I actually did 122,500 push-ups the year I turned 60….yes, I counted. At this date in 2020, I have not missed a day of 200+ push-ups each day since January 1.
I could go on with examples of the amazing results of the repair to my mangled wrist, but I will not take up any more of your valuable time. I just wanted to make sure you know how appreciative I am for your work and your talents. You only take a back seat to me thanking God for my recovery!
Thank You very, very much.
May God continue to bless and guide you.
In 2019, I got injured playing hockey for my college team. I went to a doctor who told there was no major problems and sent me on my way. 6 months later, I re-injured and saw a new doctor who after looking at my CT scan, told me I really needed labrum surgery. After I went to Dr. Doumas who told me I had a full fracture, not just a tear, in my shoulder and that he would be able to fix it. 3 days later, I had surgery and it has since been fully repaired. Dr. Doumas saved my military career from being over, just by taking the time to listen to my concerns. Thank you!
This place is awesome. Great staff.
