Dr Tucker is an accomplished and highly trained MD who pursued learning and then teaching Prolo therapy. She became dissatisfied with the approach to chronic pain of most physicians in practice today. She will use either prolo or PRP injections for the patients’ joints (shoulder, hip/back etc) . Having suffered from recurrent (weekly) sacroiliac instability/dislocation, it was a relief to finally have a treatment that has really helped stabilize my back. She listens well, is compassionate and highly competent. I am grateful for her care AND the results!!!

Over 30 years ago, I was inspired by Dr, Tucker. She was active in wanting to learn more about the athletic body when stressed and in need of repair. As runners we compared notes. Opps! that is a lot of time to find I needed this therapy but not for running, I had a shoulder and knee injury from walking into a door in the hospital not running, that was chronic. Dr Tucker is amazing I am glad I found her doing the PRP work. On the follow up call, by Dr Tucker, I announced success and full rotation has returned. I needed just a little help from my own blood and this modality works. I highly suggests you take your injuries to Dr Tucker. She knows every inch of the muscularity in our bodies. She pointed out other pains which to me was so intuitive. She is a wonderful person, empathetic and sincere. One of a few excellent Doctors I know. I believe 100% in Dr. Tucker.

Ihave heard so many good things about this doctor, but I did not want to get my hopes up. My right knee was very unstable and painful. I had had surgery for my ACL which did not really help things at all. So I saw Dr. Tucker to see if she could help stabilize my knee and improve my pain. First of all, she is the real article. She did an exam on me like no one else ever has. As though, finally, someone was really seeing and understanding my problem. Then we decided that her treatment would probably help me. She told me she was not sure it would help me 100%. We started with dextrose prolotherapy which improved my symptoms a little bit, but then we went to PRP. This helped me so much. The knee is better by leaps and bounds. I have to admit it is not completely better but it has improved so much and I am so grateful that I went to see Dr. Tucker. You really should not have any hesitation at all to see this doctor. She won’t push you. She will tell you the situation and give
