Outstanding staff and Doctor. My child was sick and needed to see a doctor right away. Office staff called me back when there was a cancellation. Very knowledgable Doctor. Good bed manners

Horrible experience today waited 1.5 hr in the waiting wood and another 1 hr in the examination room it's now 6:30p and are leaving without being seen. I hope they don't think I'm letting my insurance pay for this visit.

Dr. Tucker is amazing! I've been suffering with Ulcerative Colitis for 5 years (I am 15 now) and for the first 4 years was seeing a different GI. In those 4 years, they did nothing to help me. Since I have started seeing Dr. Tucker in March of 2015, he has helped me tremendously. He has fought with my insurance company for me, tried many different treatments, and given me hope that I will obtain remission. Yes, his office wait is long but it is so worth it. He really cares about his patients!
