Dr. Raymond J Luna has the following 3 specialties
- Adult Medicine
- Hospice and Palliative Medicine
Hospice care & Palliative medicine specialists focus their practice on pain management, symptom relief and qualify-of-life treatments to relieve the suffering of terminally ill patients. These doctors have specialized expertise in the treatment of patients with serious illnesses, advanced diseases and conditions resulting from catastrophic injury. Though often they work within hospice settings, they prevent and alleviate suffering appropriate at any age and stage of disease and can work alongside practitioners providing curative treatments.
Hospice care & Palliative medicine focuses on depression, pain, fatigue, constipation, nausea, shortness of breath, loss of appetite and difficulty sleeping, among other conditions. They also alleviate psychosocial distress and other stressors that accompany terminal illnesses. They are skilled in guiding families through legal and ethical decision-making in end-of-life care and can address spiritual issues at these times. By coordinating care across settings by improving communication among providers, they improve access to information for families so that they understand the patient's condition and treatment options.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

as a nurse I have got to work with Dr Luna and I got to see first had what a caring physician he is. He became my physician after I worked with him for a year, he is a very, very good physician, he listens to his patient, takes his time with them and I have seen him make house calls when he felt the patient needed it. when I move out of the Livingston area I still continue to see him as my PCP, as I have not found any other doctor as good.
left untreated and in worse physical condition than ever

First of all, Anyone who would a copy of my medical records to see factual information..need only to ask. I have gone to see this dr. Luna several times over about a six month plus period for abdominal pain which has caused my quality of life to suffer beyond the extreme. After complaining of severe pain and total suffering, over the course of about four office visits, he never gave me anything to help with the actual pain...nor any type of treatment for the almost complete loss of sleep and severe loss of appetite..the tests he ordered were repetitive and unexplained...the results and the reason he believed they were necessary are.....to date....unknown and unexplained on even the basic level.. On a side note, the staff and ease of appointments is upper class to say the least ...but I didn't need a new place find friends or meet nice people ..I went to be treated for a medical condition!
