Professional Statement
For any patient looking for a new physician, I think it's important to know what you're looking for and what you want to get out of that relationship. That way, from the first appointment on, it's easy to go in and begin an open conversation.

I appreciate how Dr. Lux listens to me and allows me to retain responsibility for my own health. I participate in my care as a discussion, with her presenting the options, and me weighing in on my preference. When she talks to me, I feel like I'm being treated as an equal, as an intelligent person, and I really value that in her approach. I'm very happy with all the care I've received from her in the past.

Both Dr. Lux and [...] are wonderful at their jobs. They treat people with care and understanding. I appreciate them more than they know. I e-mail them with a non-emergency question and they answer by the next day. They truly are CARE givers. I feel they care about "me" as a person, not just a patient.

Dr. Lux in the very limited time of an appointment pulled together a thorough evaluation based on my present issue and past history, explained her thinking in a well thought out manner and put together a plan of clarifying lab tests and a referral to a specialist.

03/14/2016
Although I value the expertise, professionalism and kindness of the doctor and nurses, I think the clinic suffers from the need to see patients too quickly. It is sometimes difficult to get in to an appt. with this provider for non-emergency medical problems. [...] I wish the doctor would not write their progress notes in front of the patient on the computer. This results is lack of eye contact, as those notes are added into the computer simultaneously during explanation [...] but it seems impersonal. [...] The doctor is otherwise extremely personable, kind, professional and knowledgeable. My complaints reflect more on the running of the practice than the individual provider, other than the lack of eye contact during computer data input.
