A native of southern California, Dr. Luther came to MemorialCare in 1993 after some time in private practice in Oxnard and Torrance. He was attracted to family medicine for its breadth and for the opportunity to have lasting relationships with his patients across the age spectrum.
As Director of the Family Medicine Residency Program at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, he balances his time providing patient care with teaching the next generation of family physicians, a role he especially prizes. This has also allowed him to continue practicing full-spectrum care from early childhood to the end of life, in both the office and hospital settings. Additionally, he still accompanies his residents on house calls regularly. Outside of the office, he enjoys music, sports (especially soccer), cooking and travel.
