Dr. Tucker is very open, honest, and genuinely cares about his patients. He is more than willing to answer any and all questions you may have concerning your care . I truly felt my husband was in the best of hands with him as the surgeon.

Unbelievable! Horrible "bedside manner". Doesn't let patient talk, ask questions or answer questions. Yes, he was 2 1/2 hours late -due to emergencies, I get that and don't mind the wait as long as you get someone who will converse with you.

i had two bypasses fail,both superoir, and inferior mysentaries were plugged beyond use, and arota had no more room open. Dr Tuckers innovative approach was a femoral/hepactic bypass,which has back fed my renal organs, and my existing cappleries increased in size over a year long period, which allowed me back to a full life, with very little limits.My starting smoking 7 months ago, nicotine did what is does, and plugged one end of graph, which we just cleaned out ,and, i am back home.
