MICHAEL J LUCHERINI, MD, MS MEMBER
Born and raised in Massachusetts, Dr. Michael Lucherini received a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Brown University in 1987, before attending the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine where he received both a Master of Science in Molecular Biology and Bio-Chemistry in 1992 and a Doctorate of Medicine in 1994. He and his wife, Mary Ellen, have made their home in Mesa, Arizona since 1998, when he began a combined residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at the Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center (now Banner University Medical Center) and Phoenix Children’s Hospitals. Dr. Lucherini has been in private practice for over twenty years. His belief about healthcare being first and foremost about the patient motivated him to create a bold, innovative concept to offer patients direct access and partnership in their own health and wellness. In 2013, Dr. Mike launched his Direct Access Medicine® practice, Summit Medicine and Pediatrics. Dr. Mike and Mary Ellen love life and share their home with his 88-year-old dad as well as their three cats. They are very proud of their two beautiful daughters whose education and careers, although outside of the healthcare industry, are rising to great success.
