I have seen Dr. Lucey several Times over the past 20 years. Fractures, sports injuries, chronic back pain. He is patient, pragmatic, and effective. He is also conservative in his tretment and advice. he never prescribed invasive or intensive treatments or tests without considering and prescibing rest and physical therapy first. My family has been luck to have had him for teo generations. Indeed, we have recommended him to many family and friends.

Dr Lucey was great re my shoulder surgery. Prior to his skillful work I couldn't raise my arm. Now I need look for the small surgerical scar to even tell on which shoulder I had the surgery. He is a kind, thoughtful and skillful surgeon who I would both return to and recommend in a heartbeat. I only wish all such professionals shared his talent and his care about others.

I was a patient of Dr Lucey's when I lived in Fredericksburg, VA. I had several sports-related injuries and back problems. He performed surgery on my knee for a torn meniscus and ACL. I had no complications. I was given excellent care, and follow up, and now after 10 or more years, I am very active, and an avid long distance hiker.

This physician was so kind ,patient and attentive I felt as though I was his only patient that day .His diagnosis of my condition was exact . It was later confirmed by an MRI as required by my insurance company. The staff was professional and courteous. He was running 35 minutes behind schedule but he was worth the wait.
