Adventist Health Clear Lake Expands Service by Welcoming Provider Team in Lucerne


Adventist Health Clear Lake is expanding its health care service to the east side of Clear Lake by acquiring the practice founded by Dr. Robert Gardner in Lucerne and by welcoming Dr. Gardner and two advanced practice providers to its healthcare team.

The Adventist Health Clear Lake Medical Office – Lucerne is the latest addition to Adventist Health’s locations in Lake County. Additional medical offices are located in Clearlake, Hidden Valley Lake, Kelseyville, Lakeport, Lower Lake and Middletown.

“Our commitment to our neighbors in Lake County is to ensure that quality healthcare is available close to home,” says Brent Dupper, Executive Director of Physician and Outpatient Services for Adventist Health Clear Lake. “We are excited that Dr. Gardner has joined our team and to serve the Lucerne community.”

In addition to Dr. Gardner, two advanced practice providers will see patients in Lucerne. Joe Geare, PA, and Deborah Johnson, LCSW, are familiar faces to patients in the community and are known for their compassion and dedication. These three clinicians will be part of a network of over 90 Adventist Health providers in Lake County providing services ranging from primary care to eye care, cardiology, surgery, pain management and more.

“I am excited to become a part of the team at Adventist Health Clear Lake and look forward to continuing to provide quality care to all of my current and future patients,” says Dr. Gardner. “Our patients and staff will now have more seamless access to diagnostic services, test results and referrals to Adventist Health Clear Lake’s network of specialty physicians.”

The Adventist Health Clear Lake Medical Office – Lucerne is located at 6300 East Highway 20 in Lucerne. Appointments may be scheduled by calling (707) 274-9299.
