Dr. Trucksess is the best around. She genuinely cares about her patients. Not only does she care, but she is an excellent diagnostician who is willing to explore all avenues when other doctors just shake their heads. I have been seeing Dr. Trucksess for a number of difficult issues and she always is focused on what is best for me. She has kept me not only mobile but optimistic about getting through the issues. Her schedule is difficult because she is so good, but she is worth the wait.

Dr. Truckness was the best! Empathetic, knowledgeable, and thorough. I'm so glad she was recommended. I had several issues and she discovered what none of my prior physicians did. I am now on my way to recovery and so grateful to her.

I've seen Dr. Trucksess four times: for evaluation, an EMG, and two epidural injections. In each case, I found her to be very knowledgeable, thorough in explaining my treatment and answering questions, and extraordinarily gracious and caring. I also appreciated how gentle she was with the injections. I hold her in high respect and have great confidence that she's got my best interests at heart. The world needs more doctors like her!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Trucksess for 2+ years. I am a masters athlete who loves to push my physical limits through sport. Dr. Trucksess is empathetic and honest. She goes above and beyond to help her patients find non-surgical interventions to deal with pain and injury. She is an amazing diagnostician and works towards goals alongside her patients. I highly respect her as a doctor, an athlete and as a person. Absolutely worth the wait and potential scheduling issues. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend Dr. Trucksess. I came to her with a difficult to diagnose issue that she methodically worked through until she figured it out. Dr. Trucksess is thorough, asks the right questions and cares very much about her patients. She won’t give up until she has the answers. She provides exceptional care and I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my ortho type issues. Thank you Dr. Trucksess, for figuring out my issue and working with me to get better.

Dr Trucksess is an excellent doctor! I would recommend her without hesitation. Saw two other orthopedic doctors before her who were unable to address my neck and back pain. She helped the first visit.

I began seeing Dr. Trucksess last fall. She is a skilled diagnostician, who is capable of communicating treatment options in a manner that is both understandable and informative. I find her to be knowledgeable, attentive and compassionate. I am extremely comfortable in continuing to have her as my healthcare provider.
