Visiting patient.
I am so glad being a visiting patient, Dr. Trucksess was able to see me for a diagnosis and treatment for my right knee pain. She was prepared for my visit. From just the X-rays she was able to pinpoint what could be the best treatment for me at this time. I am here on a commitment to take care of my 7 months old grandson. My right knee had a meniscus surgery previously so I was not pro knee replacement, I want to look for alternatives like PRP. So glad I came to see Dr Trucksess who is knowledgeable about PRP. She was able to tell me that I will not be a good candidate for PRP because of the arthritis erosion and being a recent recovered cancer patient. She proposed gel injections which I had friends who had good results. I am going to go forward with it so I could complete my commitment hopefully I could continue to travel for a few more years. Most of all I am grateful for hope of independence living.

Lower back pain
Great visit. Very collaborative which is what I am looking for. Potential other treatment options as the disk degeneration becomes more of an issue.

I have nothing but rave reviews for Dr. Trucksess and the nurse and front desk staff at this practice. I watched as the front office staff helped many patients with their individual needs without any hesitation or disrespect. (That’s not always the case). Dr Trucksess listened very very carefully to everything I had to say regarding my injury and pain levels. She was very helpful in discussing my next steps. I appreciate it that surgery was not her first choice for me. Our conversations were very interactive and helpful.

Knowledgeable and Friendly
I've been to see Dr. Trucksess for several steroid injections and every time I leave knowing I received the greatest care. The procedures are always done with precision and care, but the conversation surrounding the procedure is most valuable. We normally discuss next treatments, timelines, other options for treatment and her professional outlook for my individual situation. It really puts my mind at ease knowing she's confident and comfortable in the treatment she's providing and the options I have going forward. She always knows what's best going forward and actually knows what treatments cost and whether they're covered by insurance or not!!! There's no one better in my opinion.

Another Productive Visit
Had another outstanding visit with Dr Trucksess. She was able to see me in a relatively short time to review. MRI I needed and the visit resulted in a referral to another Dr in the practice as what I need is only available in the Tyson’s office.

I’ve been a patient of Dr Trucksess for 5+ years. Dr Trucksess is a keen listener and investigator; she has a high bar for both herself and her patients. She works with patient goals and expectations; she rarely says “don’t do XYZ” unless she has a sound reason. She’s an excellent clinician and a kind human being.

When Dr. Trucksess entered the room, it was clear that she wasn’t thinking about her last patient or the 20-30 others for whom she would be caring that day. She was fully present and listening every moment. Her focus was on how to help me heal and return to normal as soon as possible. That instilled confidence in her advice and approach to diagnosis and treatment of my concerns.
