SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Doctor Lum is the best OB/GYN doctor I've EVER had. She is very knowledgeable, friendly, respectful, and very easy to talk to.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Lum is great! She's thoughtful, considerate, and really know her stuff!

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I would highly recommend Dr. Lum to my friends. She gave me various options & provided detailed information.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I was very impressed with Dr. Lum and and her open, relaxed communication. She answered my questions and explained her recommendations very clearly

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Lum went above & beyond to get my surgery scheduled before the new year.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I always felt somewhat uncomfortable with my OB/GYN doctors previously. Dr. Lum makes me feel comfortable to discuss issues I'm thinking to switch my regular visits to Dr. Lum.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

New patient - needed appt for mammogram and was given one for that same day.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

She was great!

SHC Patient, May 2014

I can see how passionate the physician is and I will keep seeing her in the future.
