Did not have a long wait, staff was very friendly and helpful. I was in and out in no time. Dr.Tucker was helpful by explaining my condition to me, and the needle I got in my knee, didn't even feel it. Great Job!!!

It appears as though my procedure was successful although I haven't had the chance to speak to Dr. Tucker about what he found or repaired. The experience otherwise was easier and quicker than expected. The staff was friendly and helpful.
