The Story Of Our Name
One of the first aesthetic devices added to my medical practice emitted intense pulsed light energy.
Lumière is the French word for “light,” and Lumen is a measurement of light, coined by a French physicist.
Lum is written in Chinese as 林, and means forest. Don’t miss the forest for the trees, because “Lum” is also in “Lumièr.”
“Lumière,” was purposely truncated to “Lumièr,” as I endeavored to create a unique label to a practice that would pay homage to its new beginnings.
– Dr. Lum
Our fundamental mission is to preserve and renew the well-being of our patients.
We believe in preventive medicine and in a “whole person” approach to health care. An individual is more than just the sum of body parts or what appears on the skin surface. We do not focus exclusively on one technology trend, treatment modality or product. We focus on what will best serve the patient as a whole person, consistent with sound medical care and practice. We believe in continuity of care.
✿ Recognition of Primacy of Consumer Welfare: We are dedicated to serving the individual interests of the consumer on the premise that the interventions are compatible with ethical practice and appropriate care.
✿ Recognition of Patient Autonomy: We must be honest with patients and empower them to make informed decisions about their care.
We are committed to consumer advocacy, safety, education, and strive to promote medical professionalism and integrity.
Quality Over Quantity
Our mission favors maximizing one-on-one doctor-patient interaction, not a business model fashioned to optimize profits at the expense of quality patient care. We believe in quality over quantity, collegiality within our profession, mutual respect, and the compassionate care of individuals as patients, not as business clients.
