Nothing bad to report, my doctor is awesome. I've always been treated with respect and dignity. I am a white woman who believes in Christ and I am a Christian and I found that in all of my visits. Compassion, patience, and love.

  Dec 4, 2023
Very thorough visit and all concerns addressed appropriately.

  Dec 4, 2023
I feel as though Dr Lutze rather than being a doctor willing to get to the bottom of the medical issue is just a sort of middle man who directs you to specialists that have several months wait to get into see. She just brushes one off even though it takes two months to get in to see her. Yes she listens to all of your concerns, but then her only answers are a blood test or a visit elsewhere. Not a good doctor in my estimation.

  Nov 28, 2023

Dr Lutze always takes time to listen to me and answers my questions.

  Aug 29, 2023
In general she is a good provider but refers to a lot of specialist with no results and no follow up steps so you spend lots of money without any outcome or really anything. I'd prefer she would put quality of life over lab results.

The visit went very well and the staff was great. I couldn't ask for a better, but filling out the pre-visit forms on my iPad was disastrous. It took me three tries and about two hours. Time to get them filled out. I kept getting kicked out and had to start over From the beginning.
