Raymond Lackore MD

with Granddaughter Laney

Treating patients as human beings and not numbers, seeing one patient at a time, and trying to be honestly helpful – THAT is the core of our mission.

Our entire staff strives
to live out the mission:

to Treat You With
the Best Possible Balance
of Compassionate Caring (Art)
and Technology (Science)

I am a committed husband (since 1978), father, and grandfather.  I have been with my beautiful wife Cindy since 1973.  She is a successful flame-work glass artist who can usually be seen at the Virginia Beach, Boardwalk Art Show.  My oldest daughter, Jayme, works for Google in Boston, Ma.  My youngest, Melinda, is a practicing Physician Assistant in an Emergency Room outside Columbus, Ohio.   My life revolves around my practice of medicine, my wife and family, personal fitness, acoustic guitar, two Bengal cats, and our Koi pond.

Education:
BS Chemistry, U of F ’74 with Honors
MD USF College of Medicine (1977)
Ob-Gyn Residency Mayo Clinic(1981)
Board Certified Ob-Gyn (1983)
Fellow American College OBGYN(1985)
Never-ending continuing education.

I am certain that the best education is an intense and never-ending journey.  As such, I continuously qualify for the ACOG Continuing Medical Education awards and I voluntarily re-certify EVERY YEAR through the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Ultrasound:   For over a quarter-century, I have performed all of my own gynecologic ultrasounds. I have attended over 20 postgraduate courses on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology. I personally perform 2D, 3D, and/or 4D ultrasound as needed on all of my gynecology patients providing a remarkable advantage in the interpretation of ultrasound information enhancing its integration into decision-making.   We have a General Electric E8 Ultrasound machine with  2D/3D/4D, Colorflow, and Spectral Doppler, 3D Multiplanar, Surface rendering, Omniview, and Tomographic ultrasound imaging.

Electronic Health Records:  I am passionate about technology. In 1998, many years before most practices, I introduced electronic health records into my office. I have spent literally thousands of hours using and developing problem-solving sequences and embedding them into the structure of the electronic health record allowing greater security, stability, e-prescribing, and features that enhance the patient’s overall experience.  We are introducing tablet computers for patient check-in and will continue the endless ongoing development of real-time decision support in our Electronic Health Records.
