    I had been suffering from shortness of breath. Saw a number of doctors. I was told I had a hiatal hernia but no one connected it to my breathing problem. Dr. Lucas ordered an upper GI series and saw that my stomach and a part of my small intestine were in my chest. After surgery, my problem was solved. Thanks, doctor.

    I love Dr. Lucas. She’s been my doctor for over 10 years and have no complaints about her.


    Carly and her team are among the best. Top notch in all areas.

    I’m happy with the amount of time Melissa Baughcum, ANP-BC, spent before my visit. This was my first visit with her, but it was as if she knew me. She was very pleasant and really listened.


    Susan Beitzell, ACNP-BC, really listens to her patients and is very personable. It took over 10 years for me to find a provider I trust. She and Dr. Person are fantastic.
