    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I have been going to Dr. Lugas for over 10 years. While his bedside manner is unconventional, he is a straight shooter. If your health issues are related to weight. He will tell you to run. If you have diabetes he will tell you to watch your diet. As I've said, Dr. Lugas is a straight shooter and does his job thoroughly, if not with the gentle nature of a puppy dog. I appreciate straight forward responses to my questions and unsympathetic diagnoses. He is not rude in nature just doesn't coddle you as some doctors will do. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting a straight answer.

Not a good match for the elderly or sickly

I agree with the woman from Ohio. Stay away. He does not care about his elderly patients. Misdiagnosis, no follow up and misleading through poor communication. Refused to provide needed paperwork when changing doctors.

He is my mothers doctor and she came to Ohio for a visit and became seriously ill.The doctors at Medina Hospital (a out base for the world renon Cleveland Clinic) The hospital found that he had her on two medicines that was not needed. Also, she a serous UTI that has gone undetected. Also, she was on the wrong medicine for depression and blood pressure. My mom is 86 and he could have caused her death. While she was in the hospital it was determined that she needed a walker for her unsteady walking. When she returned to NC he decided that she did not need a walker. How can he believe that he is smarter then the doctors at Cleveland Clinic. She has already has had two serous falls.STAY AWAY FROM HIM!
