26 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Luchansky Continued from page 24 to pursue." He received a two-year fellow- ship in child psychiatry from Uni- versity of Southern California Medical Center, which has a strong, well-rounded program. At that time Dr. Luchansky also was a clinical associate at Southern California Psychoanalytic Insti- tute, so his training in treating both children and adults contin- ued. This led to private practice on the west coast, but in the spring of 1990 his old stomping grounds in Germantown beckoned. "I always wanted to be a doctor and had a concept of myself as a community doctor, with highly skilled city training and yet prac- tice where I live and be involved in that community," he noted. Involved he is. He was elected to the board of directors of the Germantown Chamber of Com- merce and is a pilot. A search and rescue volunteer with the Civil Air Patrol, he flies over Chesa- peake Bay assisting boaters in dis- tress. "I like promoting aviation with kids and give them free rides," said Dr. Luchansky, who has also bn a flight surgeon with the Air Force Reserves since 1990 and is a Gulf War veteran. "This gives me the variety I need to mesh my abilities and interests," he noted. His interest in setting up a prac- tice in Lewes began when he became associated with the com- mander of Dover Air Force Base Reserve, who asked him for assis- tance recently when they were a bit undermanned. As coincidence would have it, he also knew Dr. David Sopa, a Lewes surgeon who also serves in the reserves out of Andrews Air Force Base in Vir- ginia. Dr. Sopa told him of the Cape region's need for a child psychiatrist, while a friend with a successful business here also encouraged him to relocate. "As I became acquainted with more professionals here I could tell this community was compati- ble with my interests - it became very alluring. It's an area which prides itself in competent, caring medical personnel in a small town setting," he explained. With a third of his practice presently devoted to children, a third to adolescents and a third to adults, he sees himself hanging out his shingle full time in Lewes in the future. (Dr. Luchansky is board certified in both general psychiatry and child and adoles- cent psychiatry.) Dr. Luchansky specializes in learning disabilities and behav- ioral problems, as well as the related attention deficit disorder (ADD), an affliction most associ- ated with children, but one he has diagnosed in a number of adults. "I've also found a need for exper- tise in developmental neurological disorders and work closely with pediatric neurologists," he explained, noting that the needs of the child, family and school must be met with counseling/support. February 3 - February 9, 1995 Dr. Luchansky is a psychiatrist who "loves doing individual psy= chotherapy," and can combine the proper balance of medication and personal therapy needed, consoli- dating and taking responsibility for all facets of achieving a cure when possible, or at least control- ling a problem. With adolescents, he finds the most common problems to be ADD, depression and eating dis- orders such as anorexia and bulimia, many of which are deeply rooted in family-related dysfunction. (Couple and marital therapy are also specialties.) "It's interesting and rewarding to be able to favorably impact an entire family through counseling and therapy. Education is the key to change. As we learn more about what normal childhood is, we can learn more about what is in the child's best interest and that must filter to the laws and courts, which, ultimately, is in the best interest of our society," Dr. Luchansky added.
