I went to Dr. Lucas with a painful and disabling foot problem. He took the time to explain my condition and to make sure I understood all of the options and possible outcomes. He did not jump straight into surgical correction, but explored other less invasive ways to help me. Ultimately I did end up needing surgery and Dr. Lucas did a fabulous job. I highly recommend this talented surgeon and I am very pleased with the outcome and the care I received from Dr. Lucas and his staff.

Dr. Lucas is an exemplary Ortho Surgeon. He not only made me feel like I was important to him and not just a "number" but he made me feel like I was getting the BEST care available when other doctors wouldn't even touch my case. My case was very complicated and he took the time to get outside opinions and share them with me. In the end, I am healed and back on my feet and I have it all to thank Dr. Lucas. I would recommend him to any one of my friends or family. He is excellent at what he does.

Dr Lucas came highly recommended by my primary care provider and close friend, & I am forever grateful for the fabulous connection. I had a long overdue need to address a bunion & bunionette. He not only made time in his incredibly full schedule to fit me in, but also talked through options, and clearly explained his recommended course of action. He & his staff are remarkably knowledgeable, kind, & reassuring from the first visit through the entire process. Post-surgery results were stunning!
