“I was there for my second follow-up after spinal surgery. He took an ex-ray and confirmed that all was well. He gave me instructions to continue following until I return to him again in three months. I am very impressed with Dr. Lu. He is very conservative and is very cautious about surgical procedures. I feel very safe with him.”

“Deciding to have spinal fusion surgery was one of the hardest decisions I had to make. It came after many years of back pain, difficult walking, poor balance, and in the end severe sciatic pain. I had numerous falls prior to my surgery in July of 2016. Having had numerous Epidural injections with good results until May of 2016, I have continued to function as wife, mother, grandmother and career nurse, marriage course facilitator. I did have to retire early in 2008. With my surgery, I began a very good PT program which has enabled me to heal. Immediately, in fact the same day as surgery, the sciatica was gone. My walking improved and my posture is better. My trendelenburg limp is nearly gone. My family was very supportive and helpful. After physical therapy , I began to feel a lot better. I am still using my cane but working on the balance issue and am optimistic I will be caneless soon. When you have been walking wrong and compensating for the pain of a severe chronic condition for many years, I compare my recovery to learning to walk again. They may laugh when I use 2 Komperdell tracking poles but I am encouraged each day. I am receiving very good care here in Anacortes both from my surgeon, physical therapy and the hospital. This decision turned out to be the best thing for me. I am 6 month post op, more relaxed and happier as a result and thanks to everyone.”

I appreciate the fact that I am in on time if not a bit before, am seen quickly and am out of the office in a timely manner. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. I recommend Skagit to anyone looking for orthopedic doctors.”
