Dr. Lucas is a osteopathic family physician who specializes in primary care and metabolic health.  Dr. Lucas has 10 years of experience practicing in small community hospitals. She teaches medical students and residents in clinical and classroom settings.  In this way, she hopes to inspire new medical school graduates to join this revolutionizing method of delivering comprehensive, quality, patient-focused health care.


Dr. Lucas advocates for simplified health care centered on a strong physician-patient relationship.  She has worked with the insurance-based system for long enough to understand what a disservice it is to patients and physicians.  In 2019, Dr. Lucas left her employed position to embark on this journey to create a clinic that is truly patient-centered. 


Recognizing that many chronic diseases originate from diet and nutrition, Dr. Lucas became certified in Obesity Medicine.  She specializes in metabolic health, including but not limited to obesity, diabetes, and polycystic ovarian syndrome.  Many of these diseases can be reversed with proper counseling, changes to medication, and consistent monitoring.  Dr. Lucas also holds additional certifications in menopause treatment from the North American Menopause Society (NAMS).

Dr. Lucas lives in Cumberland with her husband, Romeo (the other Dr. Lucas), and their three children, Sophie, Henry, and Oliver.  Yes, that's right, twins.  It's hard not to gain some experience after caring for three kids under 2!  She loves working with families and often uses her hands-on knowledge from home to help parents and children with practical ways to increase health and happiness.

Joanna Rulf, DO is an osteopathic physician specializing in primary care and integrative medicine. She delivers evidence-based primary care with a focus on osteopathic manipulation and acupuncture as powerful vehicles to increase overall wellness. After more than a decade of caring for patients in a fee-for-service health care model, she has experienced the many ways in which the doctor-patient relationship has become fractured and limited in this system. With the strong desire to re-focus on the doctor-patient relationship, she is thrilled to have the opportunity to provide more thorough, timely and individualized care.


Dr. Rulf attended Rutgers University where she received her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and spent a year abroad studying and playing soccer at the University of Sussex, UK. During a short career in the publishing industry in NYC she experienced a surprising but undeniable calling to practice medicine. Dr. Rulf received her medical degree from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, completed residency in Family Medicine at Maine Medical Center, and was selected to complete an additional fellowship year in Integrative Medicine, at Maine Medical Center and The Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. She also completed a certification in Medical Acupuncture from the Helms Medical Institute.


In her free time, Dr. Rulf enjoys cooking and then eating, enjoying live music, biking, jogging, camping and yoga. She can frequently be found goofing off with her two children and admiring her gorgeous rabbit, Bun Buns.
