Christopher A. Lucas, DO

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal is to provide the best care possible to all my patients. I treat my patients as though they are my family members. I will do everything I can to help patients navigate through the complexity of today's health care system. I always try to explain medical problems in terms that patients can understand. As a true family physician, I have diverse interests. Chances are, I can explain things in ways that make good sense to you.
