Dr. Lockhert is board certified in family practice and addiction medicine.

She has cared for patients in various settings, including hospitals, nursing homes and family medicine clinics.
“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Lockhert to our team of family medicine providers,” said Lindsay Bentley, director of Clinical Operations. “She provides high-quality medical care while creating strong relationships with her patients.”
Dr. Lockhert wanted to become a doctor so she could explore and understand what contributes to good health.
“Being healthy takes time and energy — it doesn’t just come to people,” she said. “I help people recognize what their part is in improving their health. For example, if they are not exercising, they might believe they can’t or that they don’t have time. I want to help them out of that corner and help them understand that if they want to be healthy, they can’t not exercise.”
One of the most rewarding parts of being a doctor is seeing people empowered, she added.
“There can be a domino effect,” she said. “I help someone establish healthy habits, who then helps someone else. That’s when I know someone truly got it — when they give it away.”
Dr. Lockhert completed medical school at the American University of the Caribbean. She completed a residency in family medicine at the Bon Secours Hospital in Gross Pointe, Michigan.
Dr. Lockhert is married to Dale Lockhert, M.D., an internal medicine physician who joined Lake Regional Clinic – Lake Ozark in January. They have five children. Their family enjoys board games and active outdoor recreation, including snow skiing and water skiing.
