Dr. Tucker is a true angel we don't know what we would do without him I actually pray for him because he is so special & valuable to my husband's life. Bedside manner is like having a family member talking to you and skills are amazing. My husband is here today because of his knowledge of his extremely difficult issues. We are beyond thankful for Dr. Tucker and his staff. There's not enough stars to rate him. Charlie, Beth and Zoe Hill

Dr. Tucker came highly recommended by a fellow physician, and he was described as a doc whom other docs seek out for their personal surgeries. He and his staff have been friendly, efficient, accommodating, and more than willing to discuss specifics about surgery and health (I'm an active participant as a patient). True professionals all, from Dr. Tucker to his nursing staff and scheduling team. This is when healthcare is at its best, and they get high marks from this patient!

My husband has had 2 different surgeries recently with Dr. Tucker. He is the most personable doctor we've ever met. Dr. Tucker spent so much time with us, he was extremely friendly and so informative. What was amazing is how many of the nurses at the hospital and also at the surgery center said they loved Dr. Tucker. He wasn't just nice and genuine with the patients, but also with all of the staff.

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.
in Gainesville, GA |
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.
in Alpharetta, GA |
Dr. Tucker repaired my umbilical hernia. The procedure went very smoothly with no problems and Dr. Tucker was very caring and professional.
in Cumming, GA |
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.
