I know Dr Kucas has a reputation for always being late, but the longest I have waited if 45 mins and she definitely wants to know all my issues just in the consult before the colonoscopy .. she weeds out issues.. I love her irreverent behavior because she is so dang smart!! And I love her staff...more

She took the time to ask me a lot of questions and seemed genuinely interested in helping me. She was able to identify medication that would help me and I am already feeling much better.

This Doctor was way overbooked. We've waited 4 hours to get the endoscopy done. Waste of half a day.

Dr Lucas herself is great - straight-forward, knowledgeable, thoughtful and so on. But her reception team and scheduling practices are terrible. The reception assistant and manager do not keep people informed of delays, and don't apologize or show care when folks have to reschedule due to those...more

She is approachable and will answer any/all questions. She may be direct to some, but I liked her directness as it was matched with empathy and care.
