Patient

I went to see Dr Lum as I was at a critical point with a nasty cold and bronchitis. He was able to see me right away with ZERO wait, gave me meds that I needed and was I out in 20 minutes. I came back a few days later because i had some chest tightness and he immediately saw me and treated that. I can't tell you how refreshing it is to go to a DR office and not have to wait long and also have the DR explain everything in detail for me. He made me understand on my level what was happening to me. I would only hope he becomes a Primary Care Physician!!

Will not recommend

I dislike the way Dr. Lum dealt with me. He seemed prejudice because I am black. He kept referring to me as "mam" which I find offensive. I will not go back or recommend.

Probably Greatest Dr. Ever

Dr. Lum is what a doctor should be. He is not arrogant. He is courteous, follows up on his own personally - not his staff (you do not have to call him - he will call you). He is open on Saturday and Sunday.I simply do not know how he does it. Bravo - Dr. Lum.
