Dr. James A Lu has the following 1 specialty

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

He doesn't care. He's just making a paycheck.

This Dr. James Lu just didn't appear to listen to me at all. I felt that my appointment was made and kept for two reasons. To help pay his expenses and help raise his income. He appears to be processing patients through his office just so he can charge them for his so called "services".He offered no insight in response to my issues. None! He hardly spoke to me at all other than to say hello and ask me why was visiting him that day. He offerred no help at all. I have since seen two other doctors about my problems. One doctor diagnosed me with a serious problem and offerred surgery as a needed outcome. No doctor knew about either of the others. However, the second two doctors independently came to the same conclusions which will lead me to surgery. The second two doctors both stated that my problem would most likely lead to an early death if left untreated. Where would I be if I had accepted Dr. Lu's lack of treatment or care. How many people have died because they trusted Dr. Lu?
