Over the time I was Dr. Lucia patient I found him to be very direct and expected your participation in the treatments he recommended. I don't think he tolerated patients who failed to follow his advice. All that being said I liked his and his staff professionalism and the attention to details. It is unfortunate that he has/is going out of business.

Never. Dr is rude obnoxious and bully. No bedside manner whatsoever

I am a patient of Dr. Lucia and went to him as a referral from my regular Doctor.. I was told that I didn't have asthma and that he was 99.9 percent sure I had a vocal cord dysfunction, sleep apnea, severe allergies and more. I have NEVER been to a Doctor who is so pompous and uncaring.. I did a sleep study, saw the speech therapist and took all recommended meds. Low to moderate sleep apnea, no vocal cord dysfunction. reading his notes, He's determined I have an anxiety disorder. REALLY!!! Idiot

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.
