About Me

Aimee L. Lucas MD, MS is Associate Professor of Medicine in the Henry D. Janowitz Division of Gastroenterology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Her clinical practice encompasses the full spectrum of digestive disorders and endoscopy, with particular interest in caring for patients with hereditary cancer syndromes and those at high risk for developing gastrointestinal cancers, including pancreatic cancer.
