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
