Excellent Communicator

I have known the sawbones for 10+ years. The good doctor is very good at communicating his thoughts, explaining issues and setting appropriate expectations. He has a great bedside manner, excellent on follow-up and is always easy access. Even when things don't go as planned, he is right up front and a very effective communicator.

Outstanding!

It is so refreshing to finally find a doctor who actually listens to the patient and not what the test results showed!! Dr Luster is the example of what all Drs should follow by as his compassion for his patients along with his expertise in the Orthopedic field, makes him the number one doctor to get an appointment with!
