Dr. Tucker was very kind and took my injury seriously. He was professional yet personable. This was my first time seeing him, although I have used the clinic/hospital for both of my back surgeries. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing a doctor for foot or ankle injury!

Review for Dr. Narendra Kanuru, MD

Dr. Tucker cares about his patients. He explains everything that he does, and why he is doing it. Although he is a surgeon, he would rather achieve the desired outcome for his patients without surgery if at all possible. I would not consider another Dr. for his specialty under any circumstances.
