“Dr. Lucas and his amazing staff went way out of their way to accommodate me while I was in Naples. I was competing in The US Open Pickleball Tournament and had a minor dental emergency that could not wait until I got back home. The staff squeezed me in, fixed me up and I was back in time for my match!! Thank you so much!”
