About a year ago Jesus saved my life at the hands of doctor Lucas. she was able to clear and remove a clot from my main artery which almost spilled into my brain and could have killed me. several months later she removed the bad port that another doctor had botched and put a brand new port in and was able to remove scar tissue from the other Port site from another incompetent surgeon. thank God for Layla Lucas

This was my 2nd opinion doctor after my first one wasted 6 months and never figured out the problem. The first test she sent me for and that was the right one! The surgery was a breeze and she was great at explaining what was going on and also kept checking my comfort level.
