Patient Comments (6)
in Fayetteville, GA |
Dr Tucker enters the room with the greeting "'well I see you have made it to 83"' age discrimination////says I what was the reason that you thought I wouldn't. Says he "just an observation" I take great pride in myself and am perfectly sound in mind and body. After mumbling through the exam he says "you have cataracts, and a spot, or spots, in your left eye". No explanation of what they were, pretty spots or serious spots. No new lenses will help your sight, says he, you need cataract surgery. .

Dr. Tucker is thorough, professional yet personable. I never have a long wait time. I highly recommend him (and I have been going to him for many years.)

If you want someone to talk down to you, he is your guy. Scheduling is awful , and his staff and reflects the treatment you will receive.
in Fayetteville, GA |
Very disrespectful staff. Keep in mind - as a patient, you will spend most of your visit with members of his staff. Search elsewhere.
in Princrwick, WV 25801 |
His arrogance is exceeded only by his enormous ego. He did nothing to help me with eye irritation from Skjogren's Syndrome.

Great Doctor - very knowledgeable - extremely caring.
