A native Virginian, Dr. Amanda Trucksess attended The College of William and Mary where she was a member of their Division I swim team. With a strong interest in athletics as well as human biomechanics and physiology, Dr. Trucksess graduated cum laude with a major in kinesiology. She went on to earn her medical degree from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond where she was named to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Following medical school, she completed a four year residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (known as physiatry) is a sub-specialty of medicine that focuses on the restoration of function and the non-operative treatment of nerve, muscle, and bone disorders. Dr. Trucksess chose this specialty because it allowed her to integrate her interest in human physiology with her passion for patient care.

I love Dr. Trucksess. Knowledgeable, caring, attentive. Absolutely recommend her strongly.
in Washington, DC |
Dr.Trucksess is a great doctor. Very knowledgeable and skilled. But she NEEDS to figure out how to properly run the office. It is inevitable you will wait at LEAST 35minutes after your scheduled appointment to see your doc. I waited an hour one time. My time is just as valuable as anyone else's. For this reason I cannot recommended seeing her. I don't know if it's taking on too many patients or just poor scheduling, but it is completely unacceptable.

Overstretched. Patients packed in so she can work part time. Intimidating manner. Unsympathetic.
Reston, VA |
D Trucksess very may be a good DR. Her bus mangr is below par. She should be replaced. Shld be familiar with Medicare/gap policies. Should have been no quest. She led me to believe there were appts for my procedure, the wk of 12/28. After insur app. She/the off called but left no mess. I happened to see the call ID and called back 2 mins later. The sched confirmed there were apt but they were talking Jan NOT Dec. Prob thought they said it I don't believe they did. Now I have to resched my Jan PT
