A primary focus of Dr. Lukac's practice is within the concentration of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Dr. Lukac began his medical training and career in the former Czechoslovakia, where as a young man his mission was to work in the medical profession to guide people to health and overall wellness. Due to the state of change in his country, Dr. Lukac initially completed his first Master's degree in Engineering, always interested in the inner workings of systems which he carried into his medical education.
After completing this degree, he was accepted into Medical school to fulfill his lifelong dream. Dr. Lukac attended the Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovak Republic and completed his Medical Degree with honors. He continued with the specialty of surgery, always interested in how the inner working of the human body could lead to overall health, to become Board Certified in Surgery. He progressed onto a fellowship in Neurosurgery, completing 4 years of his fellowship before moving to the United States. Dr. Lukac moved to the United States due to the excellence in educational programming, medical care and opportunity to treat and learn in the most advanced nation in the world. With this move and differences in licensing status and requirements for Neurosurgeons, Dr. Lukac was prevented from continuing with his current practice of Neurosurgery. This did not halt his mission for healing and his passion for how the human mind worked and he decided to move his practice into Psychiatry. He completed his residency training in psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York and was Board Certified in Psychiatry. Dr. Lukac became a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine at this time as well and is currently continuing his post doctoral education in obtaining his Master's Degree in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine from the University of South Florida.
He is interested in identifying a variety of health and environmental factors that contribute to some of the challenges that his young clients are facing, taking a holistic approach first, to enhance diagnosis and treatment. Healing one system would produce significant healing in other areas, again for the best possible outcomes for his clients. Dr. Juraj Lukac continues with his mission of providing the best possible care and outcomes for the overall wellness of his patients. He continues to strive for excellence in his practice though his ongoing educational development and overall patient centered approach to care, viewing each of his patients as an individual and their plan of care is unique to them and the relationship he forms with each individual.
Dr. Lukac practice is within the concentration of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Taking his vast knowledge of how the human brain worked from a surgeon's perspective and then from that of a psychiatrist gave Dr. Lukac the ability to sit with his patients, identify the key factors that can lead to their emotional and physical health holistically and guide them towards the best possible wellness outcomes.
