I had to have critical, emergency surgery at Northside in 2006. Dr Luke had already gone home for the evening, however, he was called abt my case and came back. Three critical surgeries later...i owe him a debt of gratitude!! Very kind, compassionate, highly knowledgeable surgeon!

In short, he is clearly a smart and seasoned surgeon. In a quiet and no-nonsense fashion, he walked through the condition, surgical steps to address, the risks, and his personal process for minimizing those risks. I'd never had surgery, so I was really hesitant about the whole thing. Last minute concerns to the point that I was looking to postpone the procedure just one business day prior. Dr. Luke and his staff did not complain, but instead simply walked through the issues and made me feel better about the entire thing. They clearly stated that they wanted me to feel good about it, and did not want me to do anything that I was not comfortable with. I am now recovering with minimal pain and the incision looks great. After it was over, the lab reports showed that my case could have easily had complications, but I'm convinced Dr. Luke's experience and precautionary methods managed to make it 'just another' successful surgery.

After being advised to have her Gallbladder removed, my wife and I had no clue where to find a surgeon. We stumbled across Kudzu and found some very positive reviews for Dr. Luke. We are very glad we did! He ended up being better than we had hoped for. The surgery went fine but it was his bedside manner that impressed us most. He is warm, kind and takes his time with you. We immediately felt very comfortable with him and knew we'd picked the right Doc. Can't say enough about how nice he was.

I know he is the best. I worked as a RN at Northside hospital or many years. I cared for patients after he performed surgery on them. All of his patients loved him. I was impressed because his patients didn't have any post-op complications like other surgeon's patients do. So, he is the surgeon that I chose when I had to have a tumor removed and everything went fine. He's awesome! He's also very personable as well as competent. He is compassionate and easy to talk to. I highly highly recommend him. Also, his partners: Dr. Garcha and Dr. Rueben are also very good and very personable. You can't go wrong with this group!
