Dr Lucia is an arrogant bully. My first appointment with him was horrible. He was upset that I had a sleep study done 5 years earlier at a different facility than his. He spent the whole visit berating the sleep center I'd been too and berating my primary care Dr who didn't refer me to him. I was treated like a child being disciplined. I was totally blind sided, he came in with a chip on his shoulder and started lecturing me the minute he entered the room.

He was very professional and answered all questions in great detail. I left without any regrets and unanswered questions. His knowledge in his field is comprehensive and impressive. He tests thoroughly has great contacts if you need a referral.

Dear Dr. Lucia: I hope this is a wake-up. As you known, my father is one of the most respected physicians on the West Coast. While I certainly do not speak for him, I do know quite a bit about the practice of quality medicine from growing up in the Medical Community. Having grown up with a highly-rated nationally-recognized physician, and therefore having grown up with dozens and dozens of physicians, I can only say this office is run not for the care of the patients, but to extract $$

Do not use this doctor! I think he may be off the deep end on a few things. Switches statements, rude, arrogant, demeaning, negative. My way or the high way attitude. Truly a shame, because you are there for help. Stay away unless you want a good tongue lashing. I really feel sorry for his staff.
