I just have to share how happy I am that I chose Dr. Rucker to do my breast reduction surgery. He has literally changed my life in the best way possible. I am no longer in pain and discomfort and I'm finally able to do the things that my huge breasts kept me from doing. Dr. Rucker is kind, professional and a truly gifted surgeon. I finally have the beautiful breasts I've always dreamed of.

I know I made the best decision by having Dr. Rucker do my breast reduction surgery 2 months ago. He is a wonderful man and extremely talented surgeon, as I am so happy with my results. He was very professional and kind and truly put me at ease about the surgery. I feel so amazing now and only wish I would have done this procedure many many years ago! Seriously, don't wait! :)

Dr. Rucker did my surgery 25 years ago. He did an outstanding job. People are shocked when they learn I have implants. I am returning to have smaller ones put in since I am older. He is very qualified and I'm sure after the added experience that I will be just as satisfied this time around.

Dr. Rucker is a wonderful surgeon. He was very professional and explained the entire procedure with my husband and myself. His staff was also very professional. I had a breast reduction last year and now just recently had another procedure done. I recommended 2 family members to him in the past few months and they were most satisfied with Dr. Rucker as I.
