Dr. Lutley is very nice, very clear and very professional. I wish I got to know him earlier. I had this Osteoprosis for many years, it was mentioned in the report done in 2014, but my previous doctor didn't tell me about it, so I had no knowledge about it at all till Dr. Lutley advised me to do the new bone density test. The result of this test reads very bad/low bone density and very severe osteoprosis. I felt bad for I didn't have my problem treated earlier. Thanks to Dr. Lutley, now I know, and I trust Dr. Lutley will have good follow-up and suggestions about this issue.

It was a pleasure to talk with Dr. Lutley today. He seems highly capable and highly personable. He asked great questions. He had read a great deal of my medical record in preparation for our first appointment. He offered great advice. He had a relatively more open schedule today, and there was much background to discuss, so he took extra time to make sure he addressed all of the major issues that he wanted to address. I also had extensive opportunities to relay information to him. It seems to me that we got off to a great start. I look forward to future interactions with Dr. Lutley!
