What People Say About Dr. Howard Tucker, MD
Reply
Amazing neurologist. I drive an hour an ten minutes just to see him and it's definitely worth the drive. He is kind, wants to know everything and is a problem solver with issues. I have had many neurologists, but he is by far the best one I have ever had in over 30 years. Highly recommend.
