      I had questions and concerns regarding the use of a mesh to repair an inguinal hernia and hadn't thoroughly researched this condition until after I had my first visit with Dr. Tucker. I called Dr. Tucker's office and requested that he give me a call regarding my concerns. Dr. Tucker did call one evening and went into great detail about my upcoming surgery and why he uses a mesh. Long story short, I didn't have to use any pain medication after my surgery and haven't had any issues whatsoever.

      I've never met a surgeon that cares as much and takes the time, that Dr. Tucker does. He was thorough, communicative both prior to surgery and after. Dr. Tucker came highly recommended to me and I understand why.

      Dr. Tucker repaired my umbilical hernia. The procedure went very smoothly with no problems and Dr. Tucker was very caring and professional.

      I wish there were more doctors like Dr. Tucker. His positive attitude, communication skills, years of experience all gave me confidence at a time when I felt fragile.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
