What People Say About Dr. Jay Lucas, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Run away as fast as you can! I have had three surgeries for a breast augmentation with this guy. The first time I contracted MRSA (which he kept telling me I didn't have an infection), took antibiotics for six weeks, had a revision bc of the infection (2nd surgery) and then another surgery to fix the supposed lift he did that did not hold. Finally a year and a half later (and about $12,000 later) the lift still isn't holding on one side so I am left with breasts that look like a chop shop!

Wish I could leave a negative rating. I have a medical condition that requires 2 different procedures. I verified with Medicare & Medicare Supplemetal that the procedures were covered before making an appt. Since I have a Neurologist & Internist with yrs of documentation proving the need of the procedures they would be paid. Dr. Lucas refused to see me after I spent over an hr doing paperwork stating he didn't want to take a chance of not getting paid. They verified nothing. Atrocious Work Ethic

Dr. Lucas botched the surgery for my nose last year. I feel he doesn't listen to what is in the best interest of his patients. After a breast reduction for medical reasons he appeared sleepy in post op. I used all the expensive scar cream bottles sold at his office. He cut too far up my cleavage and made my breast look horrible. However he has caused me extreme non-stop pain for what was suppose to be a simple nose correction. He won't own his mistake of dropping my cartilage nor reimburse me.
