Welcome to Neighborhood Pediatrics, the new home of Dr. Sharon Lucas and Dr. Rachel McConnell. We are pleased to have you become a part of our neighborhood. We are committed to providing you the excellent and individualized care that you have come to expect.



Dr. Rachel McConnell

Dr. McConnell tries to create a very comfortable and fun setting for her patients. As a mother, she feels she is better able to understand the child's and parents' concerns and insecurities and what can make the experience of going to the doctor's office less frightening. She strives to develop a trusting relationship with both her patients and their parents.

Dr. McConnell earned her MD degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, TX, where she also completed her pediatric residency. Following residency, Dr. McConnell earned her board certification in Pediatrics.

Dr. Sharon Lucas

As a mother of two children, Dr. Lucas is sympathetic to the needs of the whole family, as well as the child, and strives to maintain a caring and supportive environment for her patients.

Dr. Lucas earned her Medical Degree from Loyola University of Chicago Stritch School of Medicine in Maywood, Illinois. She completed her Pediatric Residency at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Chicago, Illinos.
