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.

Very disrespectful staff. Keep in mind - as a patient, you will spend most of your visit with members of his staff. Search elsewhere.

His arrogance is exceeded only by his enormous ego. He did nothing to help me with eye irritation from Skjogren's Syndrome.
