Best MD I've ever met or have been treated by. I moved from Columbia several years ago. I hope he is enjoying retirement. He certainly deserves the best retirement has to offer. He genuinely cared about all of his patients. He is a true Southern Gentleman,

Dr tanner delivered my mother and myself, then Dr. Stuckey took over his practice when he retired. I have gone to him literally since birth. Great doctor, no BS, very clear in delivering information about visits. I would highly recommend Dr. M. Stuckey to anyone in South Carolina, Columbia area.

Dr. Tanner delivered my mother and then later delivered me. Dr. Stuckey then took over his practice and I have considered him my personal and family doctor for 53 years now. Excellent doctor!

Dr. Stucky is a family medical physician which means he is more of a generalist . He has been mine and my families primary care doctor since 1975. For many years he was a referral source when managed care was enacted and he remains so now even though I can go to any specialist I want. What I find is that if I go a specialist, he will want to solve some problem with surgery in his specialty. I have found that Dr. Stucky can give me a far more logical and practical advice on the condition.

One of best experiences I've had with a GP. Took time to listen completely to my symptoms and concerns.
