Kim Tucker is absolutely the finest surgeon I've been to see. I am a 40+ year professional Hollywood stuntman and have quote unquote been to the so called best of the best over the decades. And Dr Tucker Ian leagues ahead of them. Just look my name up on IMDB.com, Joel J Kramer Kim did a total knee replacement 1year ago and I am back at full capacity and have never been happier with a surgical outcome.

Dr. Tucker is a wonderful, caring surgeon that I would recommend to anyone. She replaced my left knee five weeks ago and the results have been outstanding. I walked a mile 13 days after surgery and returned to work without restrictions in less than four weeks. She was very helpful in working with me throughout the decision making process and I always felt in control. At some point, I will have to replace my other knee and Dr. Tucker will again be my first choice. She is the best.

Dr. Tucker turned out to be an excellent choice. She explains the situation well, listens well even though it obvious she is busy as are all good doctors, and did excellent surgery on me. I had my left hip totally replaced 9 months ago and the recovery was very easy. I was 59 years old and in relatively good health - just was unfortunate to inherit osteoarthritis. Everyone at the hospital and physical therapy told me that Dr. Tucker's patients always do really well. TOTALLY AGREE!!!

I have had great experiences when visiting Dr Kim Tucker. She spends the time to explain your options, what to do to reduce the pain both from injections and excercise. Friends that have had surgeries have been very happy with her work. When I am ready to do knee replacement, will go to Dr Kim.

She's great. The girl in her office who makes appointments however is rude and dismissive. I have been the doctor's patient for 5 years, and she asked me if I'd seen her before. She couldn't give me an appointment to get injections in my knees until March 15th. I asked her if they could squeeze me in b/c I'm only there for 15 minutes. This girl said so is everyone else. Am very angry about this. She doesn't say her name when she answers the phone, which is poor telephone etiquette. 2/2/16.
