Dr. Lucey's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lucey "Dr. Patricia Lucey is a specialty care physician board certified in dermatology. She joined Inova Medical Group after graduating from residency. She completed a year-long fellowship in cutaneous oncology/melanoma at the Washington Hospital Center/Washington Cancer Institute, focusing on the detection and management of pigmented lesions, melanoma and other skin cancers. Dr. Lucey initially became interested in pigmented lesions and melanoma because of a family history of melanoma. Early in her medical training she appreciated the importance of early clinical detection and regular full body skin examinations, which can be life-saving, especially in high-risk patients with many dysplastic nevi or with a personal or family history of melanoma. Her goal is to provide thorough cancer screenings while using the additional tools of dermoscopy and digital photography to prevent and catch melanomas at their earliest stages, while helping to educate patients and their families about the dangers of sun exposure, tanning bed use, and the importance of regular screening. A native of Maryland, Dr. Lucey is excited to have returned to the DC Metropolitan area and currently resides in Arlington, Virginia with her husband and son. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, baking and gardening."

Vienna, VA |
I see her for melanoma prevention. She is thorough and detailed.
Tysons Corner, VA |
A memorable experience - lack of current experience in fields outside "standard" dermatology and skin cancer, prejudging diagnosis, and a random 10 minute internet search led Dr. Patricia Lucey to the conclusion there was nothing wrong. Add in a condescending attitude and a billing issue, and it was time to go elsewhere. Simply an awful experiance.
