  1. Dr. Loukanova I am very upset that you have had this happen to you. You are the only “Dr.” I’ve had since we moved here to Florida full time. I know that you know me in and out and I know and am very comfortable with you. I cried when I heard about this. I’m very upset!! I will keep you and your sister in my prayers and pray that I am able to somehow get back with you. Alex is also very upset. You did great for us. Kindly D. V.

    1. Hi Dawn, thank you for the kind words and your support! I I would love to keep taking care of you and, of course, Alex – but sometimes change is needed! In the next 2-3 months we will be up and running at our new location and that is why we created the website – for patients who want to follow us. My email for now is findourdoctor@gmail.com – feel free to send me an email for private discussion. Stay healthy and we will keep in touch!

    3. To: Dr Adrianna Lukanova,
      You are the best Internist physician I’ve ever had. I have faith and trust you and know my health is in the very best hands. I read, with great pride, that you & your sister were leaving the system to open your own office and practice medicine on your own terms with your high standards. I have an appt. with you soon. I’m glad you are staying in Ft Myers. I’m not in social media so I hope you get this!

  2. Dr. Loukanova
    I am so sorry to hear you left the Cape Coral office. I have been very comfortable with your service for the past 6 years. Keep me posted when you get you new location. I am meeting with Dr Zhukova for my June 5 appointment. I hope you will be in your new location before my next appointment.

  3. Dr Adriana Loukanova,
    After finally getting to be your patient in March I was depressed over hearing that you “left suddenly”. Then when one of your Lee Health colleagues shared with a friend that you and your sister were staying and opening your own practice in the Ft Myers area, my depression immediately turned to elation. He also said to check your facebook page for further information. Thank you.

    As a retired corporate director I understand the frustration that corporate life bestows on us and I want you to know that I immediately spoke to Lee Health and expressed my deep concern over their loss of the two of you as well as other physicians in the past and more in the future. I strongly suggested that they should immediately put in to action a plan to assess the underlying causes and to come up with something that would be acceptable to all parties involved. .And advertising for retired doctors to work part time is not the answer..who wants a part time doctor. That might be a strategy for convenient care but not primary care physicians.

    Anxiously awaiting the announcement of your new practice and sending my best wishes your way.

    S. H.

  4. Dr Adriana, I am so glad I found you first I want to thank you for talking care of me the way you do . You are so caring and understanding and that’s what this world needs today. I was heart broken when I heard you and your sister were gone! Then I heard you were staying a small tear fell out of my eye.And my Thyroid doctor gave me a hug and smiled. I am ready to be your first appointment. God Bless you both see ya soon.. We have your back. My Best to both of you, P J K Ft Myers Florida

    1. We will post updates on this website. It will have the exact location of the office and the phone number. We are working on it now 🙂

  5. You did exactly what you said you would when I made a commment about great doctors being forced into becoming just an average doctor. Congratulations on staying true to your standards!!

  6. I was so distressed that this befell you both. It is a great loss to me personally, Bass Rd and LPG! That said. I am wishing you fabulous success, offering caring physician services and more for all the patients you serve! Be well, be blessed!

  7. Hi Dr M. Loukanova,
    I’m so happy that you and your sister will be continuing your practice! Please let me know your location when the time comes! It is rare in today’s world to find a doctor like yourself and if you do, you follow them!! I will be following 🙋‍♀️

  8. Dr. Adriana Loukanova, we are sooooooooooooooooo happy and cannot wait until you are set up in your practice. I hope you stay in the Fort Myers area because I would not be able to go to Naples. Once you are up and running do we get to request our medical records be transferred to you?

    1. Thank you, yes we are here to stay and will be in Fort Myers. We will keep you posted. Thanks for the support!
      -Dr. Adriana Loukanova

  19. Dr. M Loukanova, I am so glad I finally found you! I’m no longer on Facebook so after 3 days of research I finally found you. I don’t know what happened but I am so happy for you and your sister that you’re no longer with Lee health. I’m a former employee so I get it. I hope you will keep me on as a patient and I’m looking forward to when you open your new practice and wish you much luck. You’re faithful patient Deb Howard

  22. ADR. So glad we have this email. I have an appt. on Thursday with “someone”, wish it was you!, Hope your opening day rolls around real fast.

  23. Two very strong women I admire greatly. You have standards and that is why your patients love you and will follow you. Dr. M, I was able to get my mammogram after getting reassigned to Dr. Kuchova, but had to make an appointment in Nov. I will probably be in South Carolina by then, but if not, I will be seeing you.

    Kathy T

    1. Oh, Corinne told me. I was wondering if you moved already or not. Change was necessary for both of us. Thank you for your support and make sure to stay in touch!
      -Dr. Milena Loukanova

  24. Dr. Adriana Loukanova,
    This is Dorothy S. I have been coming to you for so many years I do not remember how long it has been. I hope you remember me. I was so glad to find this website so I would know where you will be and I can make an appointment.
    I was to have an appointment with you on June 12. I had my blood tests done and have gotten the results on My Chart. Everything looks good.
    Since I was due for an appointment on July 12 I hope I will be able to see you soon.
    Dorothy Schreiner

    1. Hi Dorothy,

      Of course I remember you very well! I’m sorry for the inconvenience, it was not planned by me and was out of my control. We are setting up a new location and it will be announced here. Thank you for your support. Stay healthy and keep in touch.

  25. To Dr. M Loukanova, My husband, Patrick & I are so happy to hear about your new practice. You have been a lifesaver to us. We are thrilled for you & your sister.We can’t wait to meet you in your new office. Margaret & Patrick Hanratty

    1. Hello, guys!
      We are working hard for this transition to happen ASAP. The last time I saw you, you were both in a good shape, so let’s keep it like that.
      Check here for updates like the phone number and address.
      Milena Loukanova

  26. Dr. Adriana Loukanova
    This is Patricia B. I have an appointment to see you (or so I thought) in September. Hoping your new office will be open before then, so that I can make an appointment with you at your new location.
    Wishing you and your sister much success.

  27. Dr. Adriana Loukanova I was devastated to receive a call on my upcoming appointment that you were no longer with LPG. I was thrilled to know of this site to find you. I will definitely be staying as your patient. There are none other better than you and your sister. You are both “ THE BEST”

  28. Dr. M- Al and I were truly upset on hearing this news. Coming back from our vacation with colds forced us to seek care from providers we didn’t know nor cared for us like you. Couldn’t even get in to see the ARNP at the office. Needless to say we are looking forward to your new office opening soon. If there is anything I can do to assist please contact me.

    1. Thank you Marti,
      We are working hard to make this transition fast. The updates with exact location and phone number will be here. If you have any questions, please email me. Needless to say, I wasn’t given the opportunity to notify you.
      Stay healthy meanwhile 🙂

  29. I reluctantly left Dr. Adriana last year due to her location and my job constraints. She is a wonderful physician and I’ve been unsuccessful finding another. I recently called Dr. Milena to schedule an appointment and learned that they were possibly opening their own practice! I sincerely hope that I will be accepted as one of their “new” patients when they get their practice up and running and I wish you both much success in your new endeavor.

    1. Sure, Jan! We’ll be happy to see you in our new practice and keep you in the family. Check back for updates!
      -Adriana Loukanova & Milena Loukanova

  30. So glad you’re to hear your “here to stay”! We’re looking forward to your new practice and are excited for you both, knowing you’ll have great success and peace of mind being able to do and say things the way you think best. 🙂

    1. Thanks! Like one of our friends said, it’s about time somebody put the “care” back in healthcare 🙂

  31. I’ve been a patient for over 5 years and due for blood work and annual checkup in August. I had my bone scan last month, and was shocked when they called to say you were no longer with them. I very much would like to continue being your patient. Wishing both you and your sister well…. and much success.

    1. Thank you, Chris.
      We are looking forward to taking care of our patients. We are planning on starting mid July.
      Check here for updates. Stay healthy!
      Milena Loukanova

  32. I’ve been a patient of Melina Loukanova for probably close to 10 years I was very sad to hear you left
    I hope to find my way back in the future. Best of luck!a

    1. Kenna, we are in transition now and are planning to start the end of July-August.

I am so happy for you and your sister following your hearts. You have helped and guided me through my 12 years here in Fl. I trust and feel confident in you and relieved that you will still be my Dr. Please keep me updated on you new address. I WILL BE THERE !!

    1. Kim, thank you.We are planning to start the end of July- or in August.

      Stay well meanwhile:)

  34. Dr. A.L., My former primary Dr left LPG a couple of months ago. I scheduled appointment with you next week for Medicare Wellness visit. Heard that you were no longer at LPG so saw NP for Wellness visit. I have heard so many good things about you. When I asked my cardiologist who his wife goes to it was YOU!That was a 5 star rating! Happy that you are here to stay. Hope that you accept me as new patient when your office opens.

    1. Hi Teresa, I am hoping to see you at our new location and make sure to keep in touch. Thanks for trusting us!

      Adriana Loukanova

  35. I have been a patient of Dr. Melina Loukanova for over 10 years. She has always been there for me to answer my questions and listen to my concerns. I had an appointment scheduled for September with her for my annual wellness checkup. I will follow the posts on this website so I can make an appointment at the new office as soon as it is opened. I am happy and excited for these two caring and kind doctors to be opening their own practice.

    1. Thank you! At present we are working hard to transition as fast as possible. We should be up and running for your appointment. If you know any of my other patients, please let them know to sign up here and check for updates on the website as this is the only way for us to stay in touch with all of our patients until we are open. Make sure to stay healthy!

      Milena Loukanova

  36. Called to make an app. for Wellness , and someone told me she is no longer with us. I ask the person, where can I contact her? He said he did not know.I was so upset,that I cried. Thought she is not gone, this can not be real!! Started thinking she may open her own practice, did not know your sister was also there at LeePhysicians . So glad I went to my brookshire nextdoor door,and a couple of ladies explain the situation,and pass on the e mail address. Thank God! You are the best & very caring doctor, I ever had. Hoping that soon you open your practice and I want to make my early check with you.. .Please let me know where you will be. Thank you. Obrigado. Darcy Seferoglou

    1. Hi Darcy, so sorry all those changes are upsetting you… I wish we could just tell our patients, but no, it is not up to us! We are in a process of transition now and are hoping to be up and running soon. Thank you for your support and kind words. It really means a lot! Stay healthy and we will keep in touch!

      Adriana Loukanova

  37. Got a letter from Lee that you no longer with them, and went right to Google to look for you! I am glad I found this blog. I want to stay your patient wherever you go. Will refer more people to you. The best doctor ever. Looking forward to your updates, and best luck in your transition. Will be happy to support with anything I can.

    1. Hi Lynn, yes we are hoping to be on the web tpa plan. Regarding the office opening, it should be in the next few months or so, depending on how fast everything goes. We will be posting updates here. Thank you for the support and stay healthy!
      Adriana Loukanova

  38. Offering best wishes, Dr. Loukanova, for you and Dr. Milena Loukanova’s new endeavor. I was glad to learn you have not left us completely. Looking forward to learning of your new location. It was startling to receive the letter about this transition this past Saturday, June 9th, especially since it was dated May 18th!
    Very happy to know you will still be here for your long-time patients. You are one of the best physicians around, and most thorough. You have always been attentive and concerned about your patients meeting each with an extended hand and a big smile. I will assume my upcoming appointment still stands.
    If not, please let me know, so I can re-schedule. Again, may your transition be a smooth one. 🙂

    1. Thank you Cynthia, transition is never easy, but we are looking forward our new start and are very excited about the change! We will keep you posted and make sure to check for updates on this website! Thank you so much for you support and kind words. Make sure to stay healthy!

    1. Thank you Charlie and Lena, your support means a lot to us! We will keep you posted with the website updates. Stay healthy!
      Adriana Loukanova

  40. Dr. Adriana Loukanova: thank goodness for the Internet! I just got the announcement today and got right on the computer to search you out! I will check back often to find out when your practice opens. I look forward to having you take care of me for many more years!

  41. Dr. A…Jackie and I were extremely upset and disgusted in the manner in which you were treated by LPG…I found out about it on the Monday after that Friday during a PA visit…As fifteen year patients, I was shocked and angered by the manner in which it occurred…it was entirely unprofessional, although in this corporate profit culture where humans are expected to operate as machines without regard to the best interests of the physician/patient relationship, not entirely surprising or unexpected…you are a supremely compassionate, experienced and knowledgeable physician that we are vety grateful to have as our doctor…

    We are excited and thrilled to discover that you are opening a practice in the area and look forward to continuing with you as our physician. We were just about to refer 2 more husband and wife patients but will now wait until you settle at your new practice location. All the best to you and your sister! Gary and Jackie H

    1. Dear Gary and Jackie,
      Thank you, it has been an incredible journey so far for us with so much support from all our patients, colleagues, staff, and community. In the end, that is what really matters! We are looking forward seeing you all back soon, hopefully for healthy check ups 🙂 We appreciate all the new referrals! Stay healthy and please take care of yourself!
      Adriana Loukanova

  42. Dr. Loukanova, you have been my Primary Physician for a long time and I was very upset when I heard you were no longer with Lee Physicians. However, I was delighted to hear you are going to open up your own practice and were going to stay in the area. I wish you and Milena much success in opening your new practice. You have been a wonderful doctor for me and I look forward to that continuing. Best wishes to you both.
    Doris DeWitt

    1. Thank you Doris, we are looking forward starting at the new office as well. Thank you for your support and stay healthy!

We look forward to continuing with you. Paul and Sharon Dwyer

    I am extremely happy that you are going to open your own practice. You have been my only PCP since moving to Cape Coral in 2003. You know me very, very well and have taken care of my medical needs. You are such a caring and trustworthy doctor. Please let me know when your practice is set up and are taking appointments.

    Don Gregory

  51. SO thrilled to finally find you today. Was devastated by the news from Lee. You are a special and caring doctor and I look forward to seeing you again at your new practice. Things have a way of working out for the best and wishing you and your sister much success and happiness in your new location!

    1. Thank you Judy. We appreciate your support and kindness and are looking forward seeing you in our new office!
      Stay healthy!

      Adriana Loukanova

  52. Dr A, it is so very rare to find a physician with your genuine level of care and compassion. It has been nearly 10 years and I always felt I’d hit the jackpot in finding such an outstanding internist when we moved to Florida. You had the gift of always making me feel as if I was the only patient you had to see that day – never rushing, always listening and actually talking to me about my health. You are a gift to the medical community and I look forward to seeing you in your new practice!
    Alicia Steinhagen

    1. Alicia, thank you, you are too kind to me! I think that is what we are supposed to do as Internists, listen to the patient and try to put the pieces of the puzzle together. The beauty of it is that we really enjoy doing it! Expect updates mid July with more specifics about the new practice. Thank you for your support Alicia; it really means a lot to me. Please take good care of yourself and stay healthy!

  53. Dr loukanova… It’s Cara Baumann. My mom and I received notice that you are no longer with LPG. I have to admit, with my health situation, I was a little concerned because of how involved you are with my illness, past health history, and family medical issues. It was actually my cousin who found this website and I was so relieved to see that you are still going to be in practice. I am going to email you shortly to keep you up-to-date with what is going on. I’m still hanging in there, as well as my mom and Don. We wait for an update on your new practice. When one door closes, another one opens. Our physician to patient relationship is very important to me. You see so many patients, but as you can see with all of the responses on this website, we all feel that we are important people to you instead of just another patient. I look forward to having you to continue watching over my health needs.

    1. Thank you Cara! You are right, all our patients are very important to us! We value our patient-doctor relationship as much as you do. Support like yours is what makes it all worth it for us. We know we made the right choice! We are hoping to be ready to open mid July and we will keep you posted with specific updates. Thanks again, be strong and best regards to the family. Looking forward seeing you in the new office!

      Adriana Loukanova

      1. Dr. A Lukanova, so relieved to hear you will be opening a practice with your sister mid-July or so. Looking very forward to having as my doctor again. Miss you. Christine H

        1. Thanks Christine, we are looking forward seeing all our patients as well. Thanks for the good wishes!

          Adriana Loukanova

  54. Hope to hear soon to transition our care. Dr. Milena & Adriana – I an ready to help as a RN in any way. You can message me via text. As a RN of 50 yrs., your care, Dr. Milena, has been excellent.

    1. Thank you, Marti.
      We are hoping to start 20th-30th of July. It will be all posted on the website: phone number, address, exact date, etc.
      We were reassured that once we have a physical address, Lee Health will start notifying our patients where we are when they ask for us. Let’s hope so.
      Meanwhile, stay healthy, both of you.

      Milena Loukanova

  55. Dr. Adriana Loukanova,
    I was devastated when I heard about the situation at Lee Memorial. I strongly hope that you will continue to be my internist when you set up your new office. I look forward to seeing you in the near future. Sue

    1. Sure thing Susan, I look forward to seeing you in our new office! Expect updates in mid July. Thank you for your support.
      -Adriana Loukanova

  56. Hi Dr. A. Loukanova, I have had everyone I know on the lookout for you. Am elated, happy, thrilled, overjoyed, that I found you. As you can see from all the messages you are getting I am not the only one who just loves you to death.
    I definitely want to remain your patient and can’t wait until you are open for business .

    I will need a wellness physical sometime in November so please keep me in mind when you set up your appointment book.

    Best of luck in getting up and running💐😊❤️

    PS: LMHS has made one HUGE mistake.

    1. Wow! Thank you for your support and good wishes! We are looking forward to seeing all of our established patients in our new office. Please spread the word about the website, and thank you again.

  57. Thanking the Lord that you did not leave due to medical or family issue. I can relate to the corporate issues…..I’m sure our insurance will make it difficult to follow you, but WE plan to!

    1. Hi Kathy, thank you! We are working to get on as many insurances as we can. I hope it won’t be a problem, but it might take some time. I will keep you posted. “Quality measures” have been excellent, so I don’t expect any problems.
      -Adriana Loukanova

  58. My husband and I have been patients of Andrea Loukanova’s for many years and want to remain so. Will you be sending out notices with your new address and phone numbers for appointments?

    Adrienne and Ken Beebe

    1. Yes we will send out notices, expect more details for mid-July. Make sure your email is entered on the home page to receive announcements. Thank you Adrienne for your support!

  59. Dr. Adriana Loukanova, I’m so glad I found you. I hope to stay on my schedule with you. My lab work and visit were scheduled for October. I’ll continue to follow this link and hope to see you soon.

  60. Congratulations on making the leap to independence, something I truly cherish in my 28 years of practice. Wishing you both much success in continuing to provide excellent care in our community. Roxann Sangiacomo, MD Neuropsychiatry.

    1. Hi Roxann, your encouragement means a lot to us, thank you! Will keep you posted and stay in touch!

      Adriana and Milena Loukanova

  61. So relieved to find out you are opening a practice again! Was worried you and Mary Ellen Di Martini were both leaving. It is so difficult to find female health care professionals in this area who will take patients. Please keep me as a patient. I hope you relocate in a nearby area as driving 41 for us older women is becoming an increasing traffic hazard. I have several women friends who are also seeking a female physician and would like to refer them to you.
    Jean Jensen

    1. Thank you Jean! Yes, we will be close and would be happy to see all of our established patients at the new location. Will keep you posted and thank you for the referrals!

      Adriana Loukanova

  62. So glad you are staying. Please keep me as your patient Dr. Adriana Loukanova.
    I felt very lucky to have MaryEllen Di Martini refer me to you this April. Took me years to find you. A caring-competent-compassionate female physician is a rare treasure.

    1. Thank you, Jean for your kind words! I am looking forward to seeing you at the new location. We will have more updates mid July!
      Adriana Loukanova

  63. Dear Dr. Loukanova,
    I too am so grateful to have found you and am also happy that you are ok – that you didn’t leave Lee Health due to some medical issues – yourself or family! Will you PLEASE, PLEASE let me know when and where you are setting up your new practice?! And, also, if and what insurance you will be accepting? I want very much to follow you – you have taken such amazing care of me and have been a blessing….esp. in the last year! I will continue to watch for you and will enter email on the home page ! Best of luck and many hugs and blessings,
    Rita Rubin

    1. Thanks Rita! We are working on accepting all insurances, however it will be a process that will take some time. We both really appreciate your support and kind words! WE will keep you posted on our progress.

      -Adriana Loukanova

      1. OK and thanks for writing back to me! I am elated that you are both well! ME too – getting there slowly! I hope that you will be accepting Aetna Insurance. I send you many hugs and best wishes,
        Rita Rubin

  64. Adriana,
    Cassaundra and I were very sad when we heard you were no longer with the Lee physicians group. I both looked at each other and said what are we going to do. You are the best as far as we are concerned. I am so glad you and your sister are opening up a practice. We would love to follow you. I have been with you since 2005. Cassaundra adores you too. I hope and pray that you still take our insurance and you are in Fort Myers centrally located. Thanks and take care. Keep us posted. N.G.

    1. Sure Natalie and Cassaundra thank you for your support! We are hoping to have more info mid July with updates about our new office. We will love to see you in our new office. Stay healthy!

  65. Dr A. Loukanova
    I’ve been with you several yrs noon and I hate to tell you I’m hear to stay also if you will have me in your new practice. Looking forward to hearing your new location and catching up with you on health related concerns. See you soon. Elizabeth Scott

      Adriana and Milena Loukanova

    1. Thank you Janet, we are expecting to have more details near mid July. We appreciate your support very much!

      Adriana Loukanova

  66. Dear Dr. Adriana Loukanova,I was devastated when they called to reschedule my appointment, with another doctor at Health Park because you were no long with them.I was searching for you all over Fort Myers,than I remember about your sister been in Cape Coral. Thank God i did find both of you. Please let me know when me and Tonya can have appointment with you.We love you as our caring doctor and special person that we trust.

You are very loved and cared about. I have been passing along this site to others & they are doing the same. God bless & I wish you both all the best! Hugs to you. DonnaB.

  69. Dear Dr Loukanova, I was so disappointed to learn you are no longer with LP when I sent you a non urgent medical question a couple of weeks ago. I’ve tried locating you repeatedly on the internet, so was thrilled when I found this website today. I wish you and your sister all the best in your new endeavor and will call as soon as I learn your new contact information to re -schedule my spring annual with you. You are the most detailed, caring doctor I’ve ever had and I’m relieved I haven’t lost you.

    1. Hi Peg, thank you for the kind words. We are very excited about our new practice which is opening very soon. Updates with details concerning the new practice should be posted on the website soon. I am looking forward to seeing you in the spring and stay healthy!

      Adriana Loukanova

  70. Dr. Loukanova,I have been thinking what should I do,need to have blood work done soon, but they send me a new insurance card with a new dr.that they picked up for me. The insurance AARP, send me a letter that since you no longer there,they need replace with a new dr.name.
    Can’t believe that!! Now, if a I go for blood work need give my card,the results will go there, but I dont want too. I want to keep you as my dr.and no one that I have never met. Should I wait till you open a new office? Thanks Darcy S.

    1. Darcy, it is up to you. If you need something done right now, you can always go to Bass Rd. All my colleagues are great and they will take care of you. If you want to come to the new office, that’s great. I would love to see you again! We can do the labs once we are open very soon. Even if you do your labs now and the results go to Bass Rd, we can always transfer the record once we open. No worries, you will be taken care of one way or another! Just stay healthy and thank you for your support!

      Adriana Loukanova

  71. Proud and inspired by you. Congratulations and looking forward to following your practice which is sure to be very successful. Have you considered Direct Primary Care? I opened mine in South Fort Myers 2 years ago and it is full – I love it! Feel free to reach out if I can help in any way.

  72. Dr. Adriana Loukanova,
    Hope to hear where you are soon! Cassaundra and I definitely want to continue being your patient. As I mentioned before, you are the Best Doctor and I have been with you for a long time.God Bless and best wishes!

  73. My Beautiful Dr Loukanova I’m so happy to find you
    And I will be ready for your opening? Adriana love
    Ana Daniela Rouse

    1. Hi Ana Daniela, thank you, very happy to hear from you – hoping you are doing well. Expect more details about the new office soon. Stay healthy!
      Adriana Loukanova

  74. Hi Dr Loukanova, so happy to hear you are opening up a new office. You saved my life and I need to keep seeing you.

    1. Hi, Linda – thank you for your support. Looking forward seeing you – (for a healthy check up ) in the new office!
      Adriana Loukanova

  75. Dr. A. Loukanova, thank you SO much for keeping contact with all of us. Like one of the other posters, I cried when I learned you were gone from LPG. It’s VERY hard to put one’s healthcare into the hands of someone else, but I have always felt safe from the very first time I had an appointment with you, years ago. I trust you and believe in your skill as my doctor.

    I was asked by LPG if I would be choosing someone else in their practice to take over as my dr. and I said without hesitation that I would not, because I was going with you as soon as you and your sister are open. I’m eager for your new practice to be up and running so I can be in your care again.

    God bless, keep up your courage — and you go, guuurrrl!! 😃👍🏼👏🏼

  76. I’am so very sorry for what you and your sister have gone through.I’ve been with you for the last 14 years and would love to continue when you open your new practice.

    1. Thank you Joyce, we are looking forward to seeing you in the new office! It should be open very soon. Stay healthy!

      Adriana Loukanova

  77. Dr Laukanova, I am so happy I can still have you as my primary physician. I am watching the Internet closely anticipating when you and your sister will be up and running😁’. Looking forward to making an appt,
    Brenda Mango

    1. Hi Brenda, thanks for the support – should be open first week of August, details will be posted next day or so. Very exciting, we are looking forward seeing our patients back!
      Adriana Loukanova

  78. Milena I am new to the area somewhat and wanted to become a patient of yours since last year. When I tried to make a connection they told me you weren’t taking new patients. I am hoping that this will be my opportunity to finally become a patient. I actually found you on plantbased…..and knew you were the one for me. Looking forward to your newest journey. Can’t wait to call the office and make my first appointment. HOPEFULLY!

    1. Yes, absolutely. We are taking new patients.
      Almost there.Thank you for your loyalty – and we haven’t even seen each other yet:)
      Very excited about starting the new practice.
      See you soon.


  79. Dr. Adrianna,
    I am so excited to have finally found this website today, and to know you will be accepting new patients and opening soon. I had called monthly for quite some time when you were not accepting new patients. I am currently being seen at Lee Physician Group but will be so happy to be able to get my records sent to you and schedule a visit. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you.

    1. Thank you, Bonnie-I hope you like our new office, we love it! Looking forward seeing you there! Details to follow this weekend …
      Adriana Loukanova

  80. Dr. Milena, I’m so glad I found you. I was very disappointed when I received the letter from Lee Physicians Group, but happy for you now that I know you are starting your own group! I was not thrilled with the Lee office……I’ll be looking forward to making an appointment with you at your new office. Please keep me advised! I joined your Forum……Thank you, Iris Leith

    1. Thank you,Iris -very soon ,next day or two we will be able to provide more information about the new office.Stay healthy and will keep in touch!
      Milena and Adriana Loukanova

  81. Can’t wait until your new office is up and running. I will not go to anyone else. Hope you are running by November 12, 2018 which is the date that I had scheduled for you and that LPC canceled. You’ve been my doctor since I arrived in FL and I won’t give you up. You have always listened and given me the time I needed. I am absolutely disgusted with your treatment by LPG and wish both you and your sister all the best
    Can’t wait to see you again. Please let me know when you have your new office. Marie W

    1. Thank you for your support and kind words,Marie- we will be definitely open by the time your appointment was.More updates to come in the next day or two-opening very soon! Looking forward seeing you in the new practice,Marie-very excited about the new start!

    Patricia Balcitis

  84. Dr. Adriana Loukanova, sooo glad you are in your own facility. I have followed you around Fort Myers for years and was disappointed when I called LPG to make my appointment and they said you were no longer there. My disappointment turned to happiness when I found your new information and now will continue to have you take care of my medical needs. Congratulations to you both.
