Elizabeth was admitted to the hospital during/after this visit -- and I appreciate how easy and effortless Doctor Goldman-Lufty and her staff made it to get chest x-rays, do a breathing treatment, monitor her pulse & oxygen. The process was smooth. Staff at all levels were willing to help and facilitate the admission process for us. Everyone was concerned and responsive, but always explained to us what was going on and there was no sense of panic or rush ..... it was the best possible scenario for the unfortunate circumstances we had that day.

July 15, 2013

Dr had to cut our appointment short due to an emergent situation with another patient. It seemed to be an overall busy clinic day and dr was a little distracted because of this. We had a routine visit so it wasn't a big deal. However, our daughter almost ended up getting an extra immunization that she didn't need but we ended up waiting for the following week to have it done which prevented her from receiving that extra immunization!

June 04, 2013

Dr. Goldman Luthy is an excellent doctor!

April 03, 2013

We absolutely love Dr. Goldman-Luthy and feel that she gives us the best care possible!
