Dr Edward Lucas started his medical career by completing an Emergency Medicine residency. He has since written research articles, worked in 5 trauma centers, and other high acuity centers. He has been ED Director/ Assistant director at several Medical Centers in Florida. He is Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and was previously certified in Pain Management as well. He still practices Emergency Medicine and oversees and supervises MedOne, an urgent care center that also deals with primary care patients.
MedOne is dedicated to treating all cases of urgent care patients that can include up to 80-85% of all visits normally made to an Emergency Department. We are in fact THE ALTERNATIVE TO THE ED. It is our goal to treat people for conditions that would sometimes warrant an admission to the hospital. We do this through judicious use of antibiotics, and set protocols to treat Asthma, COPD, Dehydration and Weakness, as well as scores of other problems present in the community of Ocala.
We have well trained personnel trained with constant consultation with Dr. Lucas who is always available for more complex case management. We will strive through whatever means to make you feel better. If an admission is needed, we will do everything possible to avoid a prolonged visit to the Emergency Department. We have connections with hospitalists at all local facilities to attempt directly admitting you to the hospital and avoid a prolonged stay in the ED.
Emergency medicine is unique in that there are no reservations or appoints made. When your sick or injured you need help now. Waiting is not a welcome option. With overcrowding in the ED, and prioritization of more significantly sick patients before less acute ones, an idea was formed to open an Urgent Care center that would operate primarily with personnel experienced in Emergency Medicine.
Under the direct supervision of Dr. Lucas who is available 24/7 as consultant, and provider, MedOne provides immediate care to those needing it most. That represents the less acutely ill, the injured, and also those needing routine care that would not be handled efficiently, or in timely fashion at a formal Emergency Department. Instead of being placed on a back burner, patients who need urgent but not emergent care can now be seen as quickly as possible. They are the reason for our existence, and the professionals at MedOne want to permeate to you your importance to our clinic.
Our clinic is professional, not sterile. It displays a certain casual elegance that eases our patient’s anxiety and fears over “ a doctor visit”. We have electronic medical records that are safe and private no matter what might occur in our surroundings. Our staff is above all caring, and will assist your path to feeling well again as quickly as possible. In addition to the above, MedOne cares for work comp cases, accident and injury victims, DOT and school physicals. We provide vaccinations and TB testing and a myriad of other needs one may encounter.
